This might sound crazy, but I think 81-year-old Penn State football coach Joe Paterno might be the most sane voice in college football.
Paterno wants a playoff. He said as much this week. He thinks the reasons we don't have one are bogus. He pointed out that no one cares how often - or how little - basketball players go to class. College presidents simply want to protect their golden goose in football: bowl games. The NCAA just added two, by the way, meaning 68 teams get to go to the postseason. College football is the new Lake Woebegon. All the programs are above average.
