  1. All CFB games are cancelled (with one exception)
  2. tOSU and TTUN play one game
  3. If TTUN somehow pulls out a victory, all members of their team are immediately ruled ineligible and the win is vacated.  They will then lose all scholarships for the next 10 years and must be referred to as Western Rutgers University for all football related activities for a period lasting the length of their scholarship ban.
  4. Since that won't happen, when tOSU wins, tOSU is given the option to play TTUN again one week later.  This is repeated until 1) tOSU pulls even and then passes TTUN in all-time series victories and decides to stop, 2) tOSU gets tired of beating TTUN (like that's going to happen, so let's say 15 times is the limit), OR 3) TTUN obviously cheats and is forced to vacate the win as is outlined above.
  5. Buckeyes are crowned 2020 National Champions
  6. After a shocking investigation following the season finds all SEC coaches, staff, and players put ketchup on their ice cream, all SEC schools are required to eliminate their football programs.
  7. Another investigation finds that Urban Meyer told Sunshine to fake being hurt after being hit by Wade and told the review officials to overturn the fumble call.  Because of Meyer's history, the entirety of Clemson University is ordered to be dismantled brick by brick until the school no longer exists.  Furthermore, South Carolina is removed from the Union for allowing Urban Meyer to do such a horrible thing.  Thankfully Brett McMurphy's investigation uncovered this horrible scheme.
  8. Oregon issues a press release stating they were thankful to be able to cancel the game this year so that they were not further embarrassed on the national stage by tOSU.  They will go on to state that they are ashamed to think that they ever had a shot at being tOSU and will avoid mentioning tOSU in further conversations.

I think that  pretty much covers everything.  If anything important was missed, it can be added to the list with the only penalty being that Western Rutgers University will be punished for an additional year.

Same thing here.  ~$100 on roller assemblies and a couple of hours with a buddy.  After a bunch of just hanging out and messing around, it only took a few minutes per door to restore them to perfect working order.  Ours is an 07, and we bought it with messed up doors.  Had the dealership knock off a few hundred dollars because of that, and it has been great since.  The only thing that is wrong with it now is rust above the rear passenger wheel.  I have seen a bunch of Odysseys with rust right there.  I plan on sanding it down, fix it, and repainting it this summer.

In the business world, I have a few.  My biggest one is "Quick Hit."  

"Yeah, we can probably knock that out.  It's a quick hit."  As soon as my boss says it--without asking for input--I know whatever it is will actually take like 3 days.  After those 3 days, you have people asking why it took so long if it was a quick hit.  

Next one is "Minimum Viable Product."  Everyone in our area is looking for the MVP or minimum viable product.  What can we deliver that meets the absolute minimum for the project so users can use it (these are internal products for our own users)?  The idea is that you deliver the MVP for users to test with and then improve upon it in future releases.  Instead, you deliver the MVP, some higher up somewhere else determines that the project is finished, you never complete it, and people complain because things don't work the way they expected.

Increasing the budget for paying off replay officials should be the number 1 priority, and it isn't even close.  We are at the doorstep of 2020; there is no reason another team or conference should be outpaying replay officials for good reviews.

To be fair, I was thinking about Ohio State football the entire time I was reading the post.  That has to count for something.

Your number 1 has me thinking.  In this day and age, how hard would it be to frame someone?  With the ability to push money with something like Venmo, it seems like it would be easy to get people into trouble.  Push the money to them, screenshot it, and send it to someone important.  By the time the dust settled, a game or two would be missed - even if the player had no clue who sent the money.  Sure, they could report it right away to their compliance department, but it seems like it would be easy to really abuse.  

I suppose the same thing could be said for someone just taking a stack of cash up to one of them as they are walking and handing it to them while someone photographs it.  Even if the player had a confused look on their face and immediately reported it, again, it would be easy to see a game or two missed.

Chase Young had proof that he paid back the loan, and it was seemingly completely legit.  He still missed two games over an abundance of caution.  Get a shady person to organize something like this on the eve of a huge game, and I could see a person being held out of the game.

Why stop there?  If the CFP committee just picked a single winner at the end of the season--everyone already knows it will happen--is anyone really getting screwed?  Sure, teams ranked 2+ will cry, but it was a fair selection based on concrete selection criteria.

For all the talk by fans of wanting to see things settled on the field, it is odd to see people not want a broader selection of match-ups.  If there will always be bellyaching by teams on the bubble, what is the negative impact of having an expanded playoff for 6 or 8 teams?  Why is D1-A college football the only sport that can't have more than 4 teams in a playoff?*

*I have no idea if there are other sports with only 4 team playoffs out of a possible 130 (or more).
