Still in contention for next college football season is the controversial decision: college football playoff, yes or no? Along the lines of making this decision, one must take in to effect the pros and cons. Just because the fans want a playoff system, the committee cannot be biased towards that. To start off with some pros, this effect would bring college football into conformity with all other major sports in the category of having a playoff system. Basically, we would have ONE winner in the end. Some think winning any BCS bowl game is just as big as THE BCS national championship. If this playoff system would succeed, this would not just affect the fans, but the major football colleges would have their grosses doubled over what their bowl game payouts are right now. Overall, this system would level out the playing field, giving every team a shot at "gold" and would narrow a team's goal for the season: one game, one winner. Instead, the bowl games offer many games with many winners.
Many believe this system would fail and ruin our good system of bowl games we follow currently. Some cons interfere with choosing a playoff system or not. Some say that playoffs would destroy our traditional bowl system which allows 56 teams to stamp their seasons a success by reaching the postseason. In other words, not making it to the championship isnt the "end of the world". Also, it could loosen interest in the regular season. College football is a drama-filled sport. With no playoff and only two teams qualifying for a final shot at the national championship, there is so little margin for error that every game late in the season is vital. While looking at the athlete's schoolwork, this playoff system could leek in to many student athlete's final exams. This may lead them to be harder pressed to be students rather than athletes. Either way this decision falls, everyone will have to obey it whether they like it or not. So, if you had to choose, what system best fits your style? If so, why?
What's up fellow ningers?! :D Happy New Year! Somehow I ended up on the Ning this morning. Don't know if Mr.Anderson and Mr.McCusker remember our American Studies class from 09-10. Great times. It doesn't seem like this Ning has continued on over the years. What happened?See More
"There are many options out there, but to standardize is to tell a lot of teachers to learn something new or unfamiliar... it's a tricky subject. That's why I'd love to start my own school, powered by Edmodo, Ning, etc :)"
I'm not usually someone who writes a lot , not publicly anyway but I do love to express my self through art, usually visual art but most of the time the art I make is influenced by something . In this case it's a song a written by one of my favorite musicians as a response to the feeling of horror and disbelief as he watched the Twin Towers in New York go from icons to ruins on 9/11/01. The song is sad,…See More
