Da, CFP is perhaps slight better solution than old, terrible BCS system. Champion team is being determined by miniscule, 4-team playoff, rather than contest of popularity in stupid newspaper poll.
But yet, is many problem. Commie Football is already making strong case in previous blog post here for expansion of college football playoff. This plan is requiring new organization and schedule to make fair for all teams. Only then, can fans of winning team enjoy moment of true, pure udovletvoreniye of champion, before return to work in munitions factory, mining operation, or agricultural collective.
In world of Commie Football, is 16 teams in hunt for eternal championship glory! Two from each geographic District compete in first round of playoffs, which is also serving as District Championship game. Below you are seeing Round 1 results of 2014 playoffs:
Location: East Rutherford, NJ
Final Score: Penn State 24, Temple 20
Notes: For three seasons consecutive, Nittany Lions is winning District 1 South and making to district championship game, but this victory over Temple Owls is first time winning. Other than strange Week 7 loss to puny Maryland, PSU is enjoying steady, if unspectacular season led by #8-rank defense. With weak schedule, Temple is enjoying unexpected 7-0 start to season, climbing as high as #2 Top Power rank with strong #2-rank defense. But is making stumble down stretch, losing to Arizona State and South Florida, and now this. Penn State will face Ole Miss in second round of playoffs.
Location: Charlotte, NC
Final Score: Tennessee 32, East Carolina 23
Notes: Volunteers is continuing surprise season, sneaking into Top Power 25 two weeks ago and stealing District 2 South title in final week with shock 24-23 victory over Georgia Bulldogs. Trend is continue with surprise easy win vs. East Carolina, putting brake on Pirates’ #10-rank offense. ECU season is better than expectation, but late-season fading is include losses to NC State and Clemson. Is perhaps foreshadow of playoff failure? Vols is now moving forward to Round 2 to play Ohio State Buckeyes.
Location: Detroit, MI
Final Score: Ohio State 40, Notre Dame 25
Notes: On third try consecutive, Buckeyes is finally winning District 3, taking down top-ranked Notre Dame, who is flying too close to sun and burning for second time this season. Perhaps Week Ten loss to Louisville is giving OSU plan for victory, because Irish #2-rank offense is no match for #1-rank offense and #4-rank defense of Buckeyes. For Notre Dame, is deep humiliation to see top-rank, 11-1 season flushing down tualet. Ohio State is enjoying perfect 9-0 record in district games, and losing only two close games to playoff winners USC (Week 1) and Penn State (Week 11). But path forward to eternal glory is now requiring Round 2 playoff game vs. Tennessee Volunteers.
Location: Tampa, FL
Final Score: Ole Miss 24, Florida State 17
Notes: Many fans is thinking this is best game in Tier 1 playoffs, Round 1. Ole Miss Rebels is showing defending 2013 champion Seminoles where is exit door from playoffs, removing District 4 crown as well, on way out. Ole Miss is spending seven weeks of regular season as #1 Top Power rank team, but is suffering humiliation losses to both Memphis (Week 9) and rival Mississippi State (Week 12). However, is also already beating FSU 18-17 in Week 10 and using #1 rank defense to win District 4 West division. FSU is winning many close games, only losing to Miami Hurricanes (Week 9) and Ole Miss, but never have certain je ne sais quoi of champion team. Oh, you are thinking I am only speaking Russian and English language? Am also speaking Frantsuzskiy language (un peu)! Anyway, Ole Miss is now continuing playoff journey to face Nittany Lions of Penn State.
Location: St. Louis, MO
Final Score: Wisconsin 30, Iowa 26
Notes: Badgers is winning North division title for third year consecutive, and winning second District 5 title in three seasons, using #5-rank defense to hold back these Hawkeyes. When road was difficult for Iowa this season, as against Minnesota and Mizzou, Hawkeyes is usual taking good care of business, but good fortune is now dead. Badgers is unpredictable this season, losing sometimes to weak teams like Kansas Jayhawks (Week 10) and Northern Illinois (Week 12). Will face tough TCU in Round 2 of playoffs.
Location: Houston, TX
Final Score: TCU 28, Arkansas 24
Notes: Horned Frogs is making revenge for Razorbacks 36-32 victory in Week 5, now hopping on 7-game win streak. TCU is also climbing to #2 Top Power rank, with balanced #4-rank offense and #10-rank defense. Razorbacks is remaining in Top Power 25 for entire season, but cannot repeat glory of Week 5. Is good season, only with stain of ignoble 36-26 loss to lowly Louisiana Tech in Week 7. Horned Frogs now advance to Round 2 of playoffs vs. Wisconsin.
Location: Glendale, AZ
Final Score: Oklahoma 43, BYU 33
Notes: In Week 10, BYU is handing Sooners humiliation 40-21 defeat, but Sooners is now tasting revenge! Oklahoma is using #8-rank offense to stay two step ahead of #13-rank BYU offense and win weak District 7, also claiming #8 seed in Round 2 of playoffs. Will OU continue strong play, as in victories over Penn State (Week 8), Oklahoma State (Week 12) and Alabama (Week 1), or like poor dust bowl farmers in losses to Air Force (Week 5), Utah (Week 6) and Texas (Week 11)? Top-ranked Oregon is finding out next week!
Location: San Jose, CA
Final Score: Oregon 38, USC 28
Notes: Oregon is winning third consecutive District 8 Championship, and taking position as #1 Top Power team and top seed heading into Round 2 of playoffs. Ducks is having #3-rank offense, although defense is not as good. Yet, after early losses to Cal (Week 2) and UCLA (Week 5), Oregon is now winning eight straight games, and will face lowest-seed Oklahoma in Round 2. For USC, is second loss this season to North division nemesis Ducks. Oh, and no fan of Trojans is ever forgetting embarrassing loss to San Diego State in final regular season game.
YOU ARE WANTING MORE, ALREADY? ROUND 1 IS NOT YET FINISH.
In next day or two, after Intern Bobby is full waking from accidental too-long sleeping in hyperbaric sleep chamber, we will post review of first round of Tier 2 playoffs, which is identical in organization to Tier 1.
Then, next week is second round of playoffs, when remaining teams is seeded 1-to-8, based on latest Top Power rank. Highest-seed team is playing lowest-seed team, and so forth. To make old people happy, seven remaining games is played in traditional bowl game location: [from east to west: Orange (FL), Peach (GA), Sugar (LA), Cotton (TX), Fiesta (AZ), Rose (CA), and Aloha (HI)]. Higher-seed team in matchup is choosing location for each game.
Here is Round 2 schedule:
- (1) Oregon (11-2, #1) vs. (8) Oklahoma (9-4, #17) – Aloha Bowl
- (2) TCU (11-2, #2) vs. (7) Wisconsin (9-4, #14) – Cotton Bowl
- (3) Ohio State (11-2, #3) vs. (6) Tennessee (10-3, #10) – Peach Bowl
- (4) Ole Miss (11-2, #4) vs. (5) Penn State (10-3, #9) – Sugar Bowl
Is making sense, Oregon is choosing Hawaii vacation first. This is leaving Orange, Fiesta, and Rose as remaining game locations.
