The waiting is the hardest part
Why, exactly, do we have to wait a month for the BCS national title game?
Think about it. How rusty will Ohio State and Florida be when the game finally arrives?
The problem isn't college football season ends too late. It's that it starts too early. This season started Aug. 31. The Gators played five games by the end of September.
Our idea? Move the season back two weeks and play the national title game no later than Jan. 2.
