Are all these College Football upsets getting annoying?
 
I am a Badger fan as much as a skins fan, and right now they're beating Michigan 7-0, but some of the upsets are annoying, Appalachian State-Michigan, Stanford-USC, Colorado-Oklahoma, Auburn-Florida, etc. Is this making College Ball better or worse?

It makes it much more exciting and fun to watch. It also makes more of a reason for a playoff system because just because a team is undefeated doesn't mean they are better than many teams with one loss. I like the upsets but i still want a playoff system.

Yeah, I think over the next 10 years the NCAA will have some sort of system for college football playoffs. Keep rankings the same, and the top 16 get to go into a playoff bracket, and the rest of the teams can get BCS bowls so there isn't a ton of money lost.

I've always wondered why they don't just make each playoff game similar to that of a bowl game. Have the Tostito's wild card bowl or something like that.

Keep the sponsorships as a central theme of the games, and the highest bidder gets the championship.

Obviously it's either too risky, or wont make as much money... because otherwise I'm sure we'd be seeing a playoff. Personally, I would be more inclined to watch a playoff series, than any bowl games... but that's just me I guess.

I know one team that won't be going to any bowl games this year...


You going to the game tonight BSB? I've got tickets, I'm just not sure I can get out of work tonight. It's my cousins (TE Haynos) last game and I'm trying to make it down there... It's def. going to be a hell of a party and I'm really thinking about calling in sick.

Add another one to the list as #1 Ohio State falls today! I love the upsets....this year it has been "Any Given Saturday" in college football!

Definitely needs to be some sort of playoff system....at least a plus one game.

Not so fast, Oregon could easily jump past LSU for the number 1 spot. Playing LA tech could easily lower LSU strength of schedule enough for them to get passed by, but it doesnt really matter as long as you're 1 or 2.

LSU is number 1 man and Wisconsin beating Michigan is not an upset

Hell yeah. did you get to go to the game? I didn't know haynos was your cousin. He was hit really hard on one play down the middle yesterday. He does a great job at TE for us.

How does maryland lose to UNC and beat BC? This is maryland football.

And if VT didn't blow it to BC they'd be in the championship talk... :doh:

Why isn't it, they aren;t the team that they were last year, and Michigan was favored by 4 points, on the road at Camp Randall Stadium.
