Re: upgrading a graphics card

Re: College Football 2017

The CFP needs to add a provision that if they are going to stay with a 4 team playoff that they must be a conference winner. Either that or scrap the whole thing, cut the 1023 bowl games down to 24 and go back to the old way of determining a national champion. 1vs 3 2vs 4 would be more desirable too

looks like the preferred match up of Bama Vs Ohio State will end up being a possibility. The bias of these 2 teams was evident from the start. Non division yet alone conference winner in the CFP really doesnt make sense to me.
