That is the kind of naivete that will kill the post season

FCS playoffs are about as relevant to the FBS as are high school playoffs. Want to guess how many people watch FCS playoffs? Don't bother: it's usually a few hundred thousand per game. FBS viewers hover in the 20 MILLION range.

So, tell me again why the FBS should model its playoffs after the FCS. FCS is much more about amateur sports, where the NFL draft only matters to a handful of kids.

The comparison between FBS and FCS is inappropriate, but the basketball comparison is downright ridiculous. How many basketball players have to spend a day in a hot tub recovering from a basketball game?

And why are you bringing up the one and done situation? The one and done kids actually participate in the NCAA tourney. The problem with expanding the football playoff is that kids don't want to participate because they will get hurt.

I am continually disappointed that people want these college kids to effectively play a pro schedule solely to obtain the mythical goal of a true champion. Seriously, it's not that important a goal for us to sell these kids out.

I'll ask you one question: if a survey showed that 1/3 of college football players were against a three round playoff for fear of injury, would you still insist that it be implemented? I won't respond to any post from you unless you give me a yes/no answer to that question.
