In a sport dominated by money, reputation, and a few storied programs, it's pretty cool that South Florida is ranked as high as No. 2 in college football right now, given that the school started playing the sport only 11 years ago. Still, if this crazy season isn't the one that proves college football needs a fuller, more traditional playoff system, then it can't be proven. (Of course, it's been proven to anyone with an intact brain stem for many, many years now. Proving it to the members of the NCAA is obviously a different story.) I'm a fantasy sports geek, and it makes me feel better to know that one of the most popular sports in the country decides its champion based on a spreadsheet -- see here for the madness. Aren't jocks and computer geeks supposed to be bitter enemies? Talk about revenge of the nerds.
