Alex Massie argues that college football is Americaâ€™s greatest sport.Â While Iâ€™m a huge fan, I personally prefer the NFL game.Â Steven Taylor points out one reason why:Â absurd mismatches scheduled to give big powers an easy win.Â In Fixing College Football, I offer some suggestions on solving that problem.
Here are the conferences that matter:Â ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-10, SEC.Â Go ahead and throw the Big East in, too, if you want to pretend.Â Those are the BCS conferences.
Letâ€™s limit the national championship to schools playing in those conferences.Â Letâ€™s mandate that schools in those conferences schedule games only against other schools in those conferences.Â And â€” hereâ€™s the exciting part â€” letâ€™s take a page out of European soccerâ€™s playbook a have a system where the lesser teams in those conferences get replaced by the best teams from outside.
I elaborate in some detail.
