Sorry. The real tradition: Money for the Money God.

They'll never do it, but if the game really just leans into "More Money for the Money God" and is honest about what CFB has been and is now, I'd think it would be a great game!

Let me berate my boosters for only being able to tell that 5* recruit he'll make $1.5M a year and get a free Acura here, when Oklahoma is offering $3M and a Bentley!

? On September 28, your NCAA runner ups Washington Huskies make the trip to lovely Central New Jersey for this new ESPN Classic Matchup.

Your dream come true Pred... you're in upstate NY aren't you? You really ought to be waiting for the mighty California Golden Bears @ Syracuse in 2026!

I'm actually in favor of pulling a Premier League and:

No salary caps
Tiered leagues from NFL, D1, UFL on down
Annual promotion/relegation

Of course, we'll have Gulf money immediately but how's that any different than what T Boone Pickens or Jerruh want anyway?

And if it means players get compensated fairly, fine.

Money God don't care about WHERE the money came from. Just that it can fit in Money God's belly.

"sold out stadiums"

Well, they got it half right.

I am not kidding at all, I think Premier League CFB would go crazy. I think CFB is the only American sport where Promotion/Relegation not only would work, but would be amazing.

From the state of Tennessee: You're welcome.

I've seen this all over. Not sure why it's such a big deal that he doesn't want to do it.

It's a slow news day

Drugs. They are onto drugs.

Boise State’s stupid blue turf is bad enough.

They should make it look like a basketball court to garner more attention from their fans.

Inside the college football ‘Super League,’ one powerful group’s idea to fix a ‘dead’ system

Much like with the Super League proposal in European soccer, what I immediately dislike here is the creation of a permanent upper-class. If USC goes 2-10, USC ends up in DII, that's what's fair.

All they had to do was leave it alone and see how the 12 team playoff went.

But B1G and SEC got greedy and just demolished the PAC 12 for no good reason.

Well, one good reason...

The PAC12 had a big part in its own demise didn't they? Their poor negotiation on TV/Streaming had a big part in it.

I mean, still "Michigan."
