    I don’t think Fickell is waiting on the Ohio State job. A lot of what Jimmy the Saint wrote is true.

    He has six kids, with his oldest committed to Cincinnati in the 2021 class. He has two sets of twin boys who are freshmen and seventh grade.

    His daughter is my daughter’s age and we routinely saw him at all their games when we played them.

    He has an awesome job at $3 million a year at Cincinnati. I’m not sure he wants to move the family around chasing another one.

    With that said, if Nebraska offered $6-7 million a year, I think he would be perfect for that program. He’s phenomenal at identifying and developing talent, and his teams play great defense.

    If something happens to Kelly at ND, I could see him there as well.

    We have 41 bowls, but some people think a 16 team playoff is too much.

    Last year we scheduled cross-country games 3 days before but we can't put together a replacement bowl game in 3 months? Color me skeptical.

    It’s an 8 game opening weekend. It gives every non-P5 a shot, as well as every P5 who is worthy but may have dropped a game or two.

    Division II has been using 16 teams since 1988 and currently uses 28 teams.

    I don't see becoming more like D2 as a selling point. I've seen one g5 team in 15 years that's deserved a shot at the title and they would get in under the 8 team format.

    It’s going to be like March Madness and everyone will forget after the first year that they were opposed to it.

    It encourages real nonconference games.

    No one in the SEC, ACC, or B1G should be penalized for scheduling and dropping a game against a ranked P5 opponent simply because Alabama, Clemson or OSU run through the conference to give another loss.

    we have a very expansive bowl system if you want to watch non-conference games where it doesn't really matter who loses.

    That’s the point. The bowl system sucks and provides virtually nothing meaningful.

    An 8 game opening weekend changes that entirely.

    We had 7 ranked teams get beat last weekend and numerous other close calls that were thought to be upsets.

    It was great. Get 16 teams playing for everything and it will be great.

    I don't think it will become just like basketball, but I prob remember 1st/2nd round crazy upsets as much as any of the Final Four as the years go by. So yeah, I think people would like the early round games

    I agree this weekend was great. I think it would have been less great if there was a 16 team playoff at the end of the season. Clemson/Georgia would have been nothing more than an early peach bowl.

    I disagree. With a playoff, you have incentive to schedule and win those early games.

    You get more Clemson/Georgia and less Clemson/SC State or Clemson/UConn.

    It'll be more dog shit games to get to the same conclusion.

    Also 17 games is a lot for college students

    Clemson isn’t getting in the CFP unless there are multiple 2-loss P5 champs.

    Is Ohio St a middle of the road program? 1-2 in the last 3 games extrapolated over the entire season is 4-8. Really makes you think.
