1) With two bye weeks this year, is that a good thing, or bad? Should we consider adjusting the schedule to have two bye weeks every year? – hokieninsurance

Chris Coleman: I’d be fine with two bye weeks.  As players have gotten bigger, we’ve seen an increase in injuries, while also increasing the number of regular season games from 11 to 12.  I’d be totally fine if college football went with two bye weeks during the regular season.  I also think the NFL should start a week early and have two bye weeks, playing 16 games in 18 weeks, rather than 16 in 17.
