I've just noticed that a year has gone by between blog-only postings under the Articles category at Inappropriate Conversations. Clearly, I should be writing more. 

That said, here is an annual post renewing the call for a proper post-season tournament (or two) in college football. It is still an outrage that a sport with 10 conferences cannot include all conference champions in the so-called FBS playoffs. Using the BCS and other rankings, along with automatic bids for conference champions, that tournament would look like this:

16-team FBS bracket

Or, if this concept of "power 5 conferences" versus other conferences makes any sense, then I renew a call for two tournaments:
one NCAA bracket for the "popular 5" and another NIT bracket for the rest.

NIT and NCAA format
