Well, March Madness is over and it was a great one. While watching Butler and Duke battle it out, I couldn't help but think about the potential impact Butler's success could have on other college sports, CFB in particular. In the BCS system, Butler would have been playing in the pansy bowl on Dec. 23rd against F.U. State College. Well, perhaps not that unnoticed, but they for sure wouldn't have been selected to play in the MNC game. Do any of you out there think that Butler's success could quicken the process towards adopting a playoff in CFB? Perhaps, it's just wishful thinking on my part, but if anyone in the media picks this up and runs with it, it is hard to argue against what I've said.
"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."
