We never, ever should have lost to Penn State.  WTF were we thinking?

My guess is that we were thinking...Let's go to the playoffs, but let's not win our division which would require an extra game.  I saw Urban whisper something to Durbin before he sent him out.  I suspect he told him to line drive it into the line so that it can be returned for a TD.  This gives us a "good" lose, because we lost by two blocked kicks, that doesn't penalize us too much and we still get to skip a grueling BT champ game.  Just speculation though.

I could support this, however, each team should be ranked by their conference standings.  Last place, only gets one ball.  In 14 team conference, the top team gets 14 balls.  This might encourage conference mergers so that we could have 20-30 team conferences, thus giving the conference champ even more balls to put in the pot.

I think there should be two playoffs.  One for division winners.  Another for the top 4 teams in the country.  The winner of each will be crowned co-National champs.  But only the conference champs will get an invite to the White House.  On the rare occasion that the conference champ is also in the top 4, then they must play in the conference champs playoff.  The top FCS team should then take their place in the top 4 bracket.

I have also heard that going for it on 4th down is statistically better.  However, this seems it would effect the average starting position (at least in the the in-between zone of too far for field goal and too close for punting).  Do these negate each other?  For example, do teams that consistently go for it in these zones, also have a statistically disadvantage on starting position?
