I would hope that the conference will have something to say about the whole mess other than it is just Miami being Miami.

I believe NFL teams are limited to 53 players while college teams have over 85 including walk-ons. Much easier to regulate the smaller number, and the NFL leads everyone and everything in regulating.

Kannell's argument is exactly the same as Joey Galloway has expressed on "Football Today". and is one that was very common pre social media and metrics.

There is a story about Luke Appling, one of the great shortstops of all time for you younger people, asking Comiskey for some free tickets for his family. Of course the answer was no so that afternoon, Appling fouled over twenty balls into the stands, more than making up for the refused tickets. I'm not sure that there is a player today that could foul off pitches like Appling.

I'm just an old hard rock miner, but I don't understand how ESPN benefits by having more than one SEC team in the playoffs. Their revenue is based on ads whose rates are based on the number of viewers.  As the number of SEC teams increases in the playoffs, the number of viewers would decrease and ad rates decrease. For max viewers I would think the ideal match up would be USC/UCLA, TOSU, Texas/FSU, Alabama/Florida. How many people would stay up past 22:00 hours to watch three or four SEC  teams play in the playoffs?
