    have every major conference have a mandatory conference championship game

    winner of conference goes to playoff

    3 "wildcards" -- teams with best record, could be in major 5 conferences/independent/mid majors etc

    stop allowing teams above ^ to schedule scrub conference teams like App State and ****

    NOT THAT ****ING HARD

    "The tipping point was the number of players who expressed their support for Applewhite."

    Running the program based on kids' opinions who will not be there more than two more years. Brilliant.

    I was amazed about that anyway. Houston is comedown for Kiffen. When you are OC under Saban, you can land a meaty job. The trouble is can you recruit at a lessor school? The only good SEC openings were taken - Georgia and Florida. There is no Big 10 place for him to go - The big 3 are set. Texas would have been his only name school.

    You said it yourself. Anyone that thinks Kiffen would stay at a lessor school is crazy.

    I don't have an issue with that as far as week one. They all need a warmup game. Plus, those programs need those $500,000 ass kickings.

    Another problem is some conferences have 8-game conference schedules and others have 9. That needs to be uniform. I'd prefer 8 so we can keep interconference rivalries like UF/FSU, Clemson/USCe, and so on.

    After the UT fiasco and his terrible showing at USC, I'm not sure any top program is going to give him another shot until he proves he can be a HC.

    I know his ego won't allow it, but if I were Kiffen, I'd stay right where I was and be a good boy. He's not going to find a better job than the one he has right now. Who knows, if he stays with Saban and learns from him, maybe he gets a shot at the Bama gig when Saban retires.

    They say they don't want to expand the season.

    So, just cancel the conference championship games, and go back to the old school round robin championship tie-breakers. The championship games and pointless and meaningless, as determined by the NCAA-sponsored committee.

    Without championship week, we can expand to 8 teams and it will not add any games or weeks to the season.

    But then who decides who goes to the bowl games of the conference contender that does not get into the NC picture? Many conferences have automatic seeds for the winners to get into certain bowls. More selection committees?
