    Exactly!

    Not enough teams get in the playoffs which means the best NFL talent coming out of high school gravitates towards a few teams stacked at the top. Then you have a bunch of College D1 also-ran teams that get out there and compete but they have little or no chance against the top teams.

    In short, I find College Football to be rather boring because of the lack of parity.

    Played in a championship game 4 seasons ago. Can't get much more relevant than that.

    College football is at its best when they have the really good teams (let's say... Bama, Texas, OSU, Michigan, USC) but also have upsets in major bowl games. It keeps the whole "magic of college football" there. 2007 Fiesta Bowl anyone?

    I think those are a good list but it's the great rivalries that make it great (if Miami is great, then it's better if FSU is great too). I'd add one SEC power, Florida State, Oklahoma just to make great rivalry games.

    Im lucky to see a college game.

    Crappy dudes who just happen to be great football coaches will always be employed. Unless you are just an absolutely heartless human being like Art Briles of course.

    If the playoff system was 8 teams instead of 4 I think it would be a lot more enjoyable, and a better chance for a non power 5 school to be somewhat of a cinderella team.
