In great news for college football fans, the NCAA is going forward with its college football playoff system, giving teams the fairness inherent in such a showdown, while simultaneously providing entertainment for the football-hungry masses. So what did they decide to name the greatest thing to happen to football since the facemask? Something cool like “March Madness,” right?
Maybe “Foosball Extravaganza?” “Most Extreme Elimination Football?” “Gridiron Chef?”
Erm, no. The creative geniuses settled on “College Football Playoff.” It’s not very exciting, but at least it’s progress, right? And speaking of progress, whoever is in charge of these sorts of things has decided to leave the fate of the logo to the people, which may or may not have been a good idea. Hopefully this won’t turn out like that Mountain Dew experiment. But if you’re into voting online for things that don’t pertain to UK (at least, not yet), you can participate at CollegeFootballPlayoff.com. I’m not going to hyperlink that, because if you’re too lazy to type in “collegefootballplayoff.com,” then maybe you don’t care enough about the logo. Not that I blame you. it’s gonna take more than just an uncreative, gaudy new football phrase to get people in Kentucky excited.
As if “Operation: Win” didn’t already teach us that.
