10 things that make college football unique and should never be changed via ESPN.


Here is an interesting article that was on ESPN.com recently. 10 Things that make college football unique and should never be changed.  Check this list out, because I agree with just about all of them. I’d like to add a few more.

Bowl Games

CBSSportsline has a great article on the fun of bowl games.  I don’t have a problem with a bunch of bowl games. Even if the playoffs are expanded – it should stop at 8 by the way, you can still incorporate the bowls. No other sport  lets multiple teams finish the season with a post-season win. I’m fine with that.

The ESPN piece mentioned a few rivalries that they’d like to keep, but with all of the changes in college football, I really miss games like Oklahoma/Nebraska and Texas/Texas A&M. Yes college football is doing great, but it can take years to replaces some of these traditional rivalries.
