CFP in discussion to break off from the NCAA

A source told ESPN that the general feel among the presidents and chancellors on the call was that the college sports leaders have left too much money on the table by not implementing a new playoff before 2026, perhaps as much as a half-billion dollars.


I wish they would quit worrying about the money and worry more about the game.

Until it is a controlled and recognized championship of the NCAA, it will remain mythical.

The playoffs have always been separate of the NCAA. I was under the impression that this was football breaking away.

fictitious

Picking two teams to play and the winning claims a championship. Even if they played earlier. Fictitious in everyone's mind.

Again, you keep using words you apparently don't understand the meaning of.

So what are they breaking away from then (concerning playoffs)? If its TV deals then schools would have to negotiate as a block, or rather conferences which is what we have now. To get a TV deal for playoffs can’t just be SEC it would take all of the majors to make it work. And they already voted against expanding it so what do they break away from?

Would SEC just have a 4 team conf playoff and call that champion? Then would have 2 champs in theory if other conferences stayed in current playoffs. Would TV pay big money for 2 different title games?

So like every team sport in the NCAA with at large bids in a championship tournament format? Does that leave any “real” sports?

I understand completely. Its a mythical NC because it is fictitious. Always has been, even the NCAA identifies it as fictitious. Words that Bammers will never accept and really don't understand.

Not really. In every other sport there is a mini tournament to see who gets in (Conference Champ), then at-large bids are extended to increase the competition. Not in the CFP, where at-large bids are based on "eye tests", "network experts" opinions and a 12 Committee bias of has been coaches and administrators. No automatic, earned bids.

So someone’s opinion determines the field and who plays who? Got it

Yeah no the NCAA has no more authority to name champions than any other organization including the local sowing club. They don’t recognize FB titles because they were cut out of the process.

Hey, since we're talking about words and their definitions, could you explain the difference between the words "forfeited" and "vacated"?

Post another sport that there are no automatic bids. Pro or amateur? Are there any sports where the ENTIRE field is invited by someone's or some group's opinion?

You are not one of those fricking morons that think the NCAA references those words in order to distinguish the level of egregious activity each word represents? Of course, nobody could be that stupid, even a Bammer.
