Does the 4 team playoff format really matter that much?

BCSThrophy

We’ve heard it all the last few weeks… What’s going to be playoff format? The Big 12 and SEC want the top 4 teams. The Pac 12, Big 10, ACC want the conference champs. I decided to take at both formats over in the BCS era; to find out is there really that much of …

Retire The Fighting Sioux Logo

NorthDakota

This is a topic near and dear to blog contributor @HokieGuru. Read his piece on University of North Dakota. Many of you know that I attended graduate school at Virginia Tech, but what many of you do not know is that I’m from the State of North Dakota.

My final thoughts on the Big 12/ACC expansion topic.

94151706_jpg_21941_display_image

This is it. I’ve had enough. I’m taking a stand on the only site I can control this one. These are going to be my last thoughts on conference expansion, until someone actually signs some papers. Between May 6-18 when I was actively discussing the topic my blog picked up more traffic than I ever …

Articles from around the ACC Blogosphere May 21, 2012

Dwayne Allen, Jayron Hosley

Can I find 6 articles in the ACC Blogosphere not speculating on expansion? Probably not… but I found this kind of humourous at BCInterruption. If all the movement rumors playout as some predict, Boston College stands to make over $50 Million in Exit Fees. They might help some teams pack! Tigernet has an interview with …

The ACC is badly losing the PR battle.

ClemsonVT

Friday I said the next 6 weeks will shape College Football’s future and I want to follow-up on a couple of topics. When the Big 12/SEC announced their new bowl game for their teams that don’t make the 4-team playoff, it created a huge positive buzz for both conferences nationally. It was a great PR move. There …

Next 6 weeks will shape College Football’s future.

BCSThrophy

Friday an announcement that sent shockwaves across the collegiate landscape. The SEC and Big 12 agreed if their champions weren’t in the 4 team playoff that they would play each other in a bowl game. That may not be the Sugar Bowl, but I’m guessing it will be. This mirrors the deal between the Pac 12 and Big …

I’ve obviously been following the Florida State Big 12 story with alot of interest. I would prefer the ACC stays together, but I’m not here to discuss the merits of why FSU and by extension why Clemson or anyone should stay. I’m not going bash any football school for their lack of success and whether …
