Bagpipe Monday: Does College Football Need A Commissioner?

The few who stand against many.

Welcome to a special Bagpipe Monday here at One Foot Down! Friends, we all know that college football is a hot mess. A very well organized and financed hot mess- but a mess nonetheless.

Schools have their own interest, and conferences as a whole have their own interest. A lot of times, change is slow because of these competing factors. Then you throw in the NCAA and their decisions and rules- and they don’t even have a say in the way a champion is crowned.

There is a way for the sport we love to do a better job for the fans, athletes, coaches, and institutions involved in college football- we get us a commissioner.

SB Nation’s Bill Connelly has thrown his hat in the ring for this nonexistent position, and to be perfectly honest- he would be a tremendous choice. If you’re a fan of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, Bill has always been more fair towards the Irish than most- and usually his rankings have the Irish being a much better team than they actually are (that’s a bonus y’all!)

Today, over on the Mothership, Bill lays out his plan for college football as its commissioner including ways to fix recruiting, and fixing the length of the games.

It’s probably the most comprehensive rundown of a fake position that I have ever seen.

Today’s poll asks you to vote for a CFB commissioner. Do that now.
