If you were in charge of college football what would you change?
I would start with scheduling. Each team must play the same amount of conference games; preferably 9.
All non-conference games must be played before conference play starts. No more Bama vs The Citadel in late November.
I would like to see the Playoff expanded to 8 teams. First round games should be played on campus of the teams ranked 1-4. Would make the regular season just as important and meaningful as it is now.
My teams would include the Power 5 conference champions, the highest rated group of 5 team and 2 at-large bids.
In non-playoff bowl games, I would make sure there are no rematches from at least 2-3 years. Nobody wants to see UM/UF for the 100th time. This would prevent the Bowls from getting stale and would guarantee new matchups every year.
Targeting needs revamped. I would say if you are called for targeting and the replay confirms it, there is just a 15 yard penalty. If you commit another targeting, then you will be ejected but not suspended for half of the next game. I would only suspend a player if they accumulate more than 3 targeting penalties.
Clock should not stop after a 1st down until the final 2 minutes of each half. A player should not be called down if he slips/falls unless he has been touched; like the NFL.
Referees need more accountability. I would like to see some sort of grading system made public and only the highest graded ones should ref the big games-playoff, NY6 Bowls, and rivalry games like Mich/OSU and Aub/Bama.
I know it’s all about money, but the amount of commercials is insane, especially on Fox.
Also, i would find a way to bring back the NCAA video game. This doesn’t have much to do with this post, but damnit, I miss the game and I am bored at work.
Im sure I missed some stuff, but just curious to see what your perfect college football world would like.
