How come the NCAA men's basketball tournament is the most exciting thing in college sports? And at least 1/2 of the teams chosen have a chance for the final four. Football should go to a 32 team playoff with at least 2-3 play-in teams. The first couple of rounds should be localized by regions in sites of current bowls. These bowl games will draw large crowds and most likely will be filled to capacity as the travel will be affordable for the fans.
Also season schedules should be regulated so no Power conferences play lower Division teams. Conference play-offs can continue with division champs playing for the championship and maybe other teams playing a seeded final game. All conferences should play at least 9 of their games in-conference. Season starts around Labor Day with no weeks off. Perhaps the first week on the schedule is for the traditional rivals game.
