Tech No. 1 playoff needed

It's your call

January 07, 1991

Georgia Tech should be No. 1, but the NCAA should do away with such confusion and have a national football playoff, according to an overwhelming number of respondents to "It's Your Call," The Evening Sun's phone survey of topical issues.

Remaining firmly behind the ACC representative, 481 of the 655 respondents (73.5 percent) agreed with United Press International's poll that Tech should be No. 1 over Colorado, the Associated Press poll victor.

The support for a national playoff was almost as strong, with 459 of 675 callers (68 percent) saying the current bowl system isn't adequate.

"It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.
