I agree with you on the cupcake games.

If you are good enough you beat everyone you play.   Some people think the schedule is too challenging and we should mimic the way the SEC operates.

A few years ago the BIG andthe Pac12 were close to a interconference game by all teams each year.
The deal fell through when a couple of Pac12 teams balked saying it could impact their SOS and hurt playoff chances. Maybe.  But I still think those kind of matchups would bolster the Pac12 in selling tickets and building better TV audiences.

Generals fighting last year's battle. Wait until 11 -1 Stanford gets.squeezed out of the playoffs because they played Eastern Oregon Normal School instead of an extra league game.

That's exactly right.  It is a double edged sword -- cutting both ways.

I agree.  The best solution is, play more good teams and beat them. Take care of your own business and the playoffs will take care of themselves. Beat Pitt, and you don't spend two years crying about how unfair the consistantly and uniformly applied standards you do not understand are.

More from "The Days of our Lives" file...   it's been an entertaining run...  Bush hasn't played at USC for 14 years!  ...and this is still dragging on.

"The NCAA's career-ending report was false and its findings were based on the NCAA's deliberate falsification of evidence which was done to justify its predetermined outcome,"

After four years in East Lansing Jaylon Watts-Jackson is.pursuing a grad transfer. God's speed. One play, and you will never have to pay for a meal in EL again.

RIP Earle Bruce.

Bruce of course succeeded Woody Hayes when Hayes was cruelly oisted after a,ClemSIN player deliberately ran onto his hand. Had decent but not Hayes level success and never quite broke through the following a legend thing.
