So why did you comment?
It probably doesn't have a snowball's chance in heck of coming true. But about 1/2 the NCAA teams go to bowl games now. Why not put them in a bracket?
And I think it makes a lot of sense and that's why it won't happen. It's too far out of the box thinking and college sports is entirely too stodgy to ever consider doing it. You'll never get college presidents and ADs and bowl execs who are in their pockets to ever agree.
But March Madness played out on the football field would be enormously great and exciting. And why not discuss it? Spring training is still weeks off.
