He discusses a point I’ve been thinking about lately, namely, the need to diversify the CFP and make it more relevant to the rest of the country.
Here’s something I was not aware of:
“But college football hasn’t had a first-time national champion since Florida in 1996. That’s a problem. The game needs hope for teams outside the Southeast. It needs the possibility of Cinderellas, or at least semi-Cinderellas.”
I have had a vague sense of this circumstance, but I had not tracked down this bit of information. It has been a long time since someone new won the crown.
