My typical morning for the last two weeks has consisted of waking up, making breakfast, coffee, and then scrolling through all the constant bad news for college sports. Today, as I was trying to find some topics for the CSN Rundown, I saw a USA Today article with a title I found so ridiculous I could not wait to talk about it. It was titled, “Can the College Football Playoff go forward without Big Ten and Pac-12?” All I could think about is how can someone that has a job covering football forget that SEC and ACC run the country?
If he would like to know, the Big Ten and Pac-12 have combined for ONLY four national titles in the last 20 years, and USC had to cheat to get one of those.
I understand that logistically, the format is messed up and will need to be adjusted, but it is not like it was going to affect the outcome.
I love my Cougs and I even started to tear up watching the “until we meet again” video on twitter this morning, but I am not going to act like we are getting robbed of a Natty by postponing the season.
Just as I have said on other articles, I am not an expert, so I just give my opinion and if someone disagrees, then that is theirs. But if you are considered an expert on college football for a news site, a quick google history lesson on the previous national champions will help you actually look like one.
