Are you happy with the CFP? When it was first announced I thought it took away from the bowl games which were an awesome way for our region conference to play an away game against the SEC and PAC-10 and see how we stacked up.
In years past I'd be happy with a
2 loss 10 win season and playing in what was traditionally the #2 bowl, but the sting of not being in the CFP hurts. On the flip side, there was debate about who the number 4 team should be instead of who the #1 team is at the end of the year. (Screw Nebraska and Scott Frost's mom.)
What do you think?
Does the CFP take away from the bowls? Are you excited about FSU? How about the Cottonbowl?
Should there be more teams (6? 8?) in the CFP?
Should you have to win your conference to be in the CFP?
Did the CFP solve the national champion debate? If WMU whoops WIsconsin real bad and bama and OSU both lose should WMU be the national champ?
Ok, so the elves and I are smoking that legal North Pole gooooood shit, it got me thinking. Bros we are going to have the three best quarterbacks in the country...ALL AT ONE TIME!! Like holy shit. 5th year Speight (asuming he stays), RS Junior Peters, and RS Freshman McCaffrey. And to top it all off we have QB master Jim Harbaugh as our head fucking coach. The future is bright my friends, the future is fucking bright.
I was just reading this SBNation piece on Taggart and it mentioned how Coach had to adapt to "Florida's speedy talent." It got me thinking that if you follow college football you often hear this stuff about fast kids from the Southeast and Winnebago-sized lineman from Wisconsin, etc.
I'm wondering if there is any reliable data to back up these regional generalizations, or are they just canards. I recognize that there is more and/or better talent in certain parts of the country--but I mostly attribute that to areas that simply play more (or less) football due to culture, weather, etc. I'd like to know if there are truly regional differences in the kind of athletes that each part of the country produces.
[edit: This took a turn toward issues that I should have anticipated but somehow didn't. People are being adults about it and I'm ok with informed dialogue, but moms should feel free to shut 'er down if need be.]
