    yup - haven't bought one in years. Everything is more up to date on line.

    Do you seriously believe Ga Southern would trade their 6 FCS National Championships for 6 GMAC Bowl wins?

    NEVER!!!

    For one thing, we got to see the Eagles win 24 play-off games during the 6 years they won their NCs - as compared to seeing just 6 bowl games!

    I don't think you should leave the FCS either. It's a good fit for Georgia Southern.

    The FBS/BCS just needs to adopt a playoff system. And something more than the measly 4 team system that they are talking about. Maybe have bowl games coincide with the playoff games somehow. A playoff system to determine the Nat'l Champion would benefit every team, and not be bias to a certain few, like how things are now.

    ...oh I forgot. The big boys with the suits would lose a couple million if this happened.

    I really don't understand the logic there either. Have they not seen March Madness? Many pay ZERO attention to basketball until then. All of the teams in a playoff system would garner national attention even at the first round. It seems to me you pad your pockets by making people play for something and having every game attract the eyes of the nation rather than a region.

    I believe the market analysis showed that the NCAA would more than double their money by doing just an 8 game playoff. The catch is that money would be divided among EVERYONE instead of just to the Big 6 conferences. It would still be an overall increase, but then the Big 6 start to lose a little bit of power.

    Me. Haha

    But hopefully things start changing. The talk of SOME kind of playoff is at least a start. Can't really call things fair that the SEC has dominated the Nat'l Championship in the recent years when 2 SEC teams are PICKED to play. I think Houston could have made a decent run at things last year. Don't get me wrong, LSU and Bama were light years ahead of everybody, but seeing how things unfold is the beauty of a playoff.

    This is the key. You have a playoff in basketball where they see mid majors like VCU coming up and getting a chance to embarrass them. It evens the score just a bit and the Big 6 can't have that.

    I disagree. They stand to gain in a playoff situation. What does ESPN care who is attracting national attention? Playoff games would be watched by all and ESPN would be making bank. The Big 6 don't want mid-majors bumping them off their thrones.
