"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
If you look at my account info it says I have been on Mgoboard for 18 weeks and 2 days. I know that is not a lot of time compared to some of the people on this board but these weeks have had an impact on me that I am sure that this website/ message board has had on many of you. I have been a Michigan fan since I was 6 becoming this in a weird way by receiving a pair of pants with the UM logo and a Wolverine on it but before I came here I only knew one tenth of what it was to be a fan of the great University that is Michigan I went from being calm during games to screaming at the T.V. I went from watching 2 Wolverine basketball games a year to searching the internet for every game I could find yes that includes you the Northern Michigan and Savannah State fans. I even began watching UM hockey games with the same intensity that I would watch football even though I think that hockey should be banned from being a sport. A product of a overwhelming love fest that Canadian television has with the game. Recently though something has happened to me that I thought could never happen I began getting board on Mgoblog barely touching any threads that popped up that coming from a person who would read every thread then refresh it over and over until I got more substances to read. So I thought why this might be happening but then I found the fundamental differences between now and then before Mgoblog was a great place to talk to fellow Michigan fans with level headed people in smart topics. Now though there is completely off base and horrific threads about things that don’t matter yeah we know that Denard Robinson is fast but we don’t need to have 100 threads about him or about Greg Paulus. Also now people are making stupid comments saying that we are going to go undefeated and Terrell Pryor is getting slow and fat. Also no for the last time just because Ohio State has been winning games recently does not mean they pay off players just give them the respect they deserve. Anyways when looking at all these things I found that there is one thing missing between now and before. That something is the WLA crew before they acted as the unofficial police to the threads to the hate of some posters but that policing was the glue that kept this whole website together. I went to the WLA website and looked a the comments and found that it was just like before an enjoyable place to talk about football among other fun things that make it enjoyable to unwind after a hard day of school and the pressures that come with this. My plea then to the WLA crew please come back and do what you guys do best give great commentary on fun issues and make this board a way better place for everyone because it is you guys who made Mgoboard what it is and would you come back to help stop the insanity going on here recently and make it an even better place again.
Since everybody has put in a playoff system i thought i would invent one. This playoff system is an 16 team playoff with the top 16 teams going in it using the bcs standings. since the bcs cronies say that the season is to long then limit the teams to one bye week which means that the regular season would end on November 22nd this year with the confrence title games being on the 29th however all confrences must have a title game to make even yes sun belt that includes you. The first two rounds are at the higher seeds home stadium with the semi-finals and finals being at 3 of the 4 current bcs sites while they rotate with one sitting out every year that one will host one of the bowl games out side of the top 16. To add money for schools all those who are not playing in the semi-Finals have the option of playing in the regularly scheduled bowl games which will be held between the semi finals and finals ok so this is how the schedule would go with the teams who id think would win the matchups.
#1 Oklahoma vs. # 16 BYU (@ Oklahoma)
#2 Flordia Vs. #15 Georgia (@ Flordia)
#3 Texas Vs. # 14 Georgia Tech ( @ Texas)
#4 Alabama vs #13 Oaklahoma State (@ Alabama)
#5 USC vs. # 12 Cincinnati (@ USC)
#6 Utah vs. #11 TCU (@ Utah)
#7 Texas Tech vs. # 10 Ohio State (@ Texas Tech)
#8 Penn State Vs. #9 Bosie State ( @ Penn State)
the teams would then be put in the second round highest seed against lowest seed as opposed to the ncaa basketball tournament where they have pre set second round seed matches even when th elower seed wins.
#1 Oklahoma Vs. #8 Penn state (@ Oklahoma)
#2 Flordia Vs. #7 Texas Tech (@ Flordia
#3 Texas Vs. #6 Utah (@ Texas)
#4 Alabama Vs. #5 USC (@ Alabama)
After the first rounds the games would go to the bcs sites minus one of them for this one i took away the Orange Bowl because i despise Pro Player Stadium or whatever they call it now.
#1 Oaklahoma vs. #4 Alabama (@ the fiesta Bowl)
#2 Flordia Vs. # 3 Texas ( @ the Sugar Bowl)
the National Championship game will be scheduled January 8th to let all the bowl games go by. So with the bowl schedule the loss of one bcs bowl game because of th enational championship that means that 2 teams will have to be booted out to make room for 4 Ohio State, Penn State, USC, And utah since two of these teams Utah and Usc (since they are the higest ranked) will play in the orange bowl which got left out of the semi finals finals rotation. To make room 2 bcs confrence schools with a 6-6 record will go so Notre Dame and North Carolina State. So that means that Penn State will be playing Hawai'i in the Hawi'i Bowl and Ohio State will be playing Rutgers in th Papajohns.com Bowl then th eBowls would go as scheduled normally.
national championship game Jan 8th
#1 Oklahoma Vs. Flordia (@ Rose Bowl)
So that is my playoff idea what do you guys think of it.
