Teams like UTEP and UAB have never had a seat at the table. Our teams have never competed for national titles or even access bowls.

Yes, this attitude baffles me. In the pre-BCS era, not only did G5-type schools not have more of a chance to gain some shine on a national scale, they had considerably LESS chance to do so.

These days, a school like UAB can play all of their games on national TV and then if they have a measly 6-6 record usually do the same in a bowl game. And if they had a great season and go 12-0, quite possible play in an NY6 bowl game. That's all very real right now.

In 1994, a school like UAB would have been absolutely invisible. No televised games, virtually no chance at a bowl game unless winning 8 or more games, and absolutely zero chance at an NY6 bowl, all while being paid nothing.

In 2000, UAB went 7-4 and did not play in a bowl. Last year, in 2019, two CUSA teams that went 6-6 played in bowls.

There has *never* been a better time to be a UAB-type program than ... right now, and yet never has there been more whining.

to a socialist like you a free market capitalist would indeed be baffling to you

Commies and socialists want fairness and a have a “trophy for everyone” mentality. More teams in the playoff is socialist.

Can we count on you to give back your social security and Medicare?

Very little is denser than the head of economic Libertarian who thinks working markets just magically exist and regulate themselves. It takes a number of teams to play football. You need to agree on the rules. You need to have fans. Fans need to know what to expect. In a capitalstic model there would only be about 8-12 college football programs playing P-5 football.

Alabama football exists because Bama has other schools to play and some of those schools fans think they can win the game. The economic and political education in this country is horrible.

8-12 teams playing p5? Seems like we are already there. How many teams have NCs since 1998 or so? How many teams have made the playoff since the current system was implemente?

Many seem to think if you dont play for a title or playoff spot then youre just wasting your time.

College football is on the same path as MLB. They have a game dominated by the same few schools and it’s quickly becoming a regional game with limited national interest. The greed of schools has destroyed old time rivalries and half the country doesn’t care. Many fans of G5 schools don’t even bother tuning in.

RE: Guess the TV rating for Alabama-Ohio State
I think it was simple as people were fatigued from Alabama and disgusted with all the hypocrisy and blatant special treatment rule changes made to get a 6 win OSU team into the playoff

The results were inevitable

Thing is, the NFL playoffs the day before were off severely in ratings as well. And ratings for the semifinals, which included Alabama and Ohio State, were up over last year.

Since we have to look to an explanation that covers those things, I would suggest the vagaries of a strange virus year, and preoccupation with the political situation.

It probably stems from a lack of talent or players. A lot of these top prospects are coming from families with deep professional athletic roots. The kids making it out of urban areas are trying to beeline to the NFL and need the right program to get them there. There aren’t enough players to support the perennial USC OU UN Miami’s of the world. We are probably going to get a cycle of Clemson FSU, Fla UGa Auburn LSU Bama, B1G East, every year. The PAC 12 is becoming an afterthought, as nobody on the west coast cares anymore. That to me stems from a lack of overall players, similar to what MLB had to overcome with blacks participating less and less. But MLB had been able to grow a huge following in Latin America. I doubt American football can achieve this and get and influx of European talent.

Well, see, I like to base my ideas on evidence. In this case, we have what seem to be three relevant pieces of evidence:

1) Title game rating was way down
2) NFL playoff played the day before were also way down
3) CFP semis were UP.

So #3 seems to work against the notion that ratings for #1 were down because people are tired of seeing the "same old teams at the top", since the semis consisted of ... the same old teams that have been at the top.

Throw in #2, and this suggests that the cause for #1 is something that happened between #1 and #3. Did anything "big" happen during that time? Why yes it did - the Capitol was stormed by rioters. So that seems to make more sense as an explanation than "tired of the same old teams".

And how is what I am saying socialist? Socialism is about "leveling" off the top, eliminating the elites, to make everyone at the same level. You seem to think I am defending the elites at the top of the heap. That would seem to be the opposite of 'socialism".

So people were watching news Sunday and Monday night? The ratings should reflect that on the major news networks.
