    "The commissioner of the Southeastern Conference has seen his member schools win an unprecedented six straight Bowl Championship Series titles. Now Slive's determined push for a college football playoff appears more likely to succeed than ever. "

    "Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany, Slive's rival and long the most stubborn opponent of a playoff, crumbled on Heartbreak Hill a long time ago in this marathon. In February, Delany for the first time said he was open to considering a four-team playoff, but he championed the idea of semifinals played on campus sites. Now it appears Delany won't even get his way there as the campus option has little support."

    *face palm*...

    My god you're a special one...



    But really, it doesn't matter. Because we know a playoff situation only hurts the SEC and will kill their chances for championships.

    get ready for the PAC12 Chants.

    Actually get ready for more SEC vs SEC national championship games. Nothing to stand in the way of that now.

    You know- if they actually win them fairly like this? I won't mind it near as much.


    But we both know their dominance ends the moment the BCS does.

    Yeah, because the SEC has really struggled against the top teams from other conferences in the BCS Championship games.... :suspect:

    This is the closest the NCAA has ever been to crowning a real national champion. I look forward to the legitimization of college football.

    It's about time.

    The NCAA President said on a TV show last month that he knows the system is broken and that it would take roughly 3 years to fix things. In that he touched on adding a playoff.

    If only the SEC were running college football there would've been a playoff years ago.
