"Yes We Can" Have a College Football Playoff!

I'm sure most of you either saw Obama and McCain on Monday Night Football yesterday or heard about it. One of the last questions asked by Chris Berman (wtf?) was relating to sports and asked what each candidate would like to change in the world of sports.

In an age where the government is increasingly involved in sports, this question isn't so ridiculous. McCain went with eliminating performance enhancing drugs, which was about as surprising as a 3rd and 1 rush up the middle. Obama threw a double reverse pass and mentioned wanting to see a playoff in college football.

Yes! Get it done Barack. If you win, you call those university presidents and the NCAA decision makers to the White House and pummel them with your wit and your cadence until we see eight teams slugging it out for a legitimate championship.

It's too bad we couldn't get this in place for this season, as a playoff would be the only real way to get the best teams playing for the title. There are at plenty of teams with legitimate arguments to play for it all this season: Alabama, Penn State, Texas Tech, Oklahoma, Texas, USC, and Florida as a start.

I don't care if you meant this as a promise or not, I'm holding you to this one Mr. Obama. FIX IT!

what's he going to do? take 40% of both the baseball playoffs and basketball playoffs and give them to college football?
