The College Presidents’ Oversight Committee has approved a four team seeded playoff. It is WAY overdue.
It is hard to understand why it took the ivy covered college presidents so long to realize their dream of squeezing more money out of the sport of football. Any form of playoff would automatically generate a lot more money than the BcS ever did. While this plan is a major step forward, I still have a lot of questions.
My first question is why did this take so long? We hear that the Bowl system had to be protected. Who among us did not shed a tear when the Poulan Weedeater Bowl went belly up? I have more to say about the Bowls later. But when a team must only win 6 games to qualify, how important can the bowl be?
Then there was the argument that a playoff would negatively impact the student-athletes. But those same educators have no issues with the basketball players missing 3 weeks of school for the NCAA basketball championships. And those require teams to visit 3 different cities.
Second it will not start until the 2014. WHY? Because none of the supporters of the BcS can … Read more at FryingPanSports
NFL Commissioner Goodell decided to enforce the 5 game suspension of former OSU QB Pryor in his league. This not only sets a very dangerous precedent it ties the credibility of the Commissioner, the league and his power to deal with off field behavior of the players and coaches to that of the NCAA. The issue is that the NCAA has done everything it can to destroy whatever credibility it still had.
Pryor who sold a legal item that belonged to him for a legitimate market value. He got a 5 game suspension. Under the US Constitution not even the federal government can penalize someone for selling a legal product that belonged to them. What gives the NCAA that power? I have said several times that if one of the players had been my son, I would have sued the NCAA for every dime it ever even dreamed about seeing.
Then the same power that gave Pryor and other Buckeye players a 5 game suspension faced
another issue. University of Miami QB Jacoby Harris and others got gifts of thousands of dollars from a convicted felon and he got a 1 game suspension. WHAT???????

The NFL and NBA drafts are often the most talked about and publicized events in professional sports. They certainly bring more media attention compared to other professional leagues like the NHL of MLB. So what makes the NFL and NBA so popular, with the best TV reviews? Is it just the brand name athletes? Whats more interesting to watch, the NFL or NBA draft? Maybe, it is the style in which the drafts are being orchestrated. Lets break down the two different drafts to see what all the fuss is about.
First lets take a look at what allows one to be eligible for a draft into one of these prestigious leagues.
NFL- Any high school player who has been graduated for three or more years is eligible to enter the draft. Of course most players attend some form of college before they are ready to make the leap into the NFL. Players can also be drafted from other leagues like arena football and the CFL.
