Many thanks for the feedback.

I've been in a work black hole. Did not mean to disappear, but as Ron Swanson would say, it has been "kah-RAZ-ee" for the past week.

I would never nickel and dime grammar, font, size, and whatnot, but was thinking that each of the headings could be at the top like a table of contents so that the reader could click jump to headings within the text -- if possible -- use a "return to top" link embedded in each section (per subheading). My IT/web experience and vernacular is supremely weak, so apologies if this comes off as basic. (Not in the unintentionally ironic, "basic defense" way)

And -- also if possible -- are you able to create columns or wrap text? The tables/images are great, but I think creating a visual path with the text and offsetting with the tables/photos could help with flow/readability and cut down length.

Again -- this is like icing on the cake. The content is so solid compared to my forte: smart-ass comments and GIFs.

Have a great weekend!

This article has way too much information, quality, and *implied* blood, sweat, and tears.

So solid... Yet I have thoughts on format and presentation. Maybe the site doesn't allow -- happy to enjoy what is good good good/better than most sites I pay for, than being the cranky guy.

Prepare brain for implosion...

But the Playoff has hurt No. 1.

Whether it was a one-loss Alabama team that clearly led the NCAA field in 2014 or undefeated Clemson in 2015 or undefeated Bama in 2016, these teams were the class of college football all year long — to only get dumped into a four-team blender at the end of the year. It’s almost a coin toss whether No. 1 can win two more games or not. So far, the coin has come up against No. 1 — which at some point, will devalue the whole enterprise.

Translation: Earning CFP championship via two wins is a "coin toss" as opposed to being out-prepared, out-coached, out-played, and out-scored on game day. Got it.
