But the bowl system is silly and is just about sponsorship money when you really get down to it. They're glorified participation trophies.

Which is why I hate bowls, since there are no stakes. But they're not going away.

Probably not, I mean, there is SO much money tied up in all of this, too, for the universities. It's how they fund these monster football teams in the first place. But you COULD fix the problem, if you sat down and looked it. There's a way to get the money back to the schools, and maybe in slightly fairer shares. Again, BBall and the other Football conferences have found a way to make it happen.

If you started a 16 team playoff in the 3rd week of December, you'd have:

Week 1: December 19th
Week 2: December 26th
Week 3: January 2nd
Week 4: January 9th.

This is absolutely not cutting into the semester, NOR is effecting the system ALREADY in place for the bowl series/championship. You're just making teams have a little less time off.

And my counter for that, as previously mentioned: Nix one week of the season, make each conference required to have a championship game as week 12. So some teams will still be playing the same amount of games they already were, but everyone will be equal.

19th would be right at the end of finals week. Definitely out. Can't start that early.

I think that's doable. You split the money amongst the conferences, and that should make up for losing bowl games for some schools.

I still say that they'd need to lose a week of the regular season.

March Madness actually happens during finals for schools on the quarter system. So, yeah the NCAA really doesn't care about the "student" part of Student Athlete.

The bowl game argumet is easily remedied, lesser bowls still take place, bigger bowls become the playoff games.

For what schools? Certainly not all of them. And seriously, why is this suddenly an issue, when it's not an issue for all of the teams that participate in the early December bowls?

This year has:

Camellia December 19 Montgomery, AL MAC vs. Sun Belt

Celebration December 19 Atlanta, GA MEAC vs. SWAC

Cure December 19 Orlando, FL American vs. Sun Belt

Las Vegas December 19 Las Vegas, NV Mountain West/BYU vs. Pac-12

New Mexico December 19 Albequerque, NM C-USA vs. Mountain West

New Orleans December 19 New Orleans, LA Sun Belt vs. C-USA

Are those 12 schools somehow less important academically?

Vanderbilt literally completed just 2 passes today for about 20 yards and still nearly beat Florida on their home field. Watching that game today was like time traveling back and watching Big Ten football in the 80's. #painful
