Anyway, it is good to see a new team as champion. My old cyberpal Becky should be happy.

If it is any consolation, jbott, ClemSIN is in pretty good shape to be back next year. ClemSIN and The enter into the season with elite level quarterbacks, while most of the other the other elite contending teams - Alabama, LSU, Georgia, Michigan State, Oklahoma, Oregon - have big questions to answer at the game's most important position.

I agree that it is good to see some turnover at the top.  It was getting pretty boring for all the rest of us when only two teams could win.


...well, three if you count Michigan State, of course.

The CFP has a new Champion, but the format is not changing anytime soon, if ever.
Bill Hancock the front man for the old BCS and now the CFP was reappointed yesterday reaffirming his support of the college Predidents and the CFP Committee and, moreover, their desire not to change the four team format. With still six years left on the CFP contract with ESPN  all stakeholders seem contented not to change a system that keeps producing undisputed champions.

 LSU’s passing game coordinator Joe Brady has told people today that he is planning to return to the NFL and the Carolina Panthers, per league sources.
Enjoy the replays of 2019, LSU without Burrow and Brady, may not be the same again.

Odds to win the NCAA National championship next year have been released. MSU is 500 to 1. In my best Jim Carrey voice... "So you're saying we have a chance!"

LSU’s national championship game victory against Clemson drew nearly 26 million viewers to ESPN, up slightly from last year’s final.

ESPN said Tuesday that viewership for the three-game College Football Playoff increased 4% from last season, when Clemson beat Alabama in the championship.

The network’s championship game megacast, which includes ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU and ESPNews, drew 25.6 million viewers. Last year’s megacast had 25.3 million viewers. The ESPN-only audience was also up over last year, from 24.3 million to 25 million.

Joe Burrow, the Heisman Trophy winner, led No. 1 LSU to a 42-25 victory Monday night in New Orleans. The game was 28-25 in the third quarter before LSU surged and put away the title early in the fourth quarter.

Overall, the television audience for New Year’s Six games were down 4% over last year for ESPN

Does this include the "play off" games that were not held on New year's day?

I assume that is a rhetorical question?

In any case, since the answer was yes, the reason for the down turn in ratings on NY6 games is simply because they were "not" all on New Year's Day?  And everyone still seems to be learning that lesson?

“Everyone has figured it out” . The problem is no one has away to solve it.
 Not as long as the Pac12, the BIG, and the Rose Bowl remain in contract along with the SEC and the Sugar Bowl.
