The Drive: July 20th, 4:45pm – The Rose Bowl is holding up the party

  • The Rose Bowl doesn’t want to change ANYTHING and is holding up the CFP expansion

The Drive: June 22nd, 4:45pm – CFB reporters are now saying that it’s going to be difficult to get a new playoff format before 2026

  • Do you mean to tell me that with all of this we will have to wait 5 years?
  • 2024 would be the best option
  • While we are changing things, can we get a new trophy?

Iowa announced yesterday they’re selling beer and wine at Kinnick Stadium this Fall…is it inevitable soon in Lincoln?

-Remember what Shawn Eichorst once said? “We had to evaluate where Iowa was as a program”…that didn’t go over well, but maybe not it should!

-There’s still no news on alcohol for the Garth Brooks concert. But what if it’s announced soon that they will sell cans of beer only for that event?

-Also—for those who say the stadium isn’t equipped for alcohol—who says you need to have draught beer? JUST USE CANS AND ALL IS RESOLVED. Players will be paid soon anyways; traditions ending

Jake is going camping this weekend and he’s curious if listeners are fans of camping or not

-It’s one of the craziest things when people talk about camping; some are adamant it’s the best thing ever, and others would never ever consider camping…no A/C! Bugs! Not comfortable!

Deshaun Watson apparently wants to join the Broncos; if you were Denver, would you want him or Aaron Rodgers?

-Both big names have been attached to Denver this offseason, as they look to get a long-term elite answer at QB. Watson is much younger with lots of potential still, but obviously has legal problems right now

-Rodgers is unhappy in Green Bay, and is still elite, but doesn’t have near as long of a career left as Watson (barring legal ramifications for Watson)…so, who’s the choice if you get one?

College Football Playoff will consider proposal for expanding to 12-team format

-The College Football Playoff Committee will consider expanding the current 4-team format by eight teams. The new format would include 6 automatic bids and 6 wild cards. The top four automatic bids would receive a first round bye.

-Would expanding the playoff help create more fan interest? Would it help with the competitiveness and parity of the sport?

  • We did this about a year ago and it was interesting how it turned out

The Drive: January 19th, 4pm – Would playing playoff college football games in cold weather areas ever be a possibility

  • Dirk Chatelain wrote that the NFL embraces the cold and bad conditions for football, but college football is quick to stay away from the cold at all costs
  • Could this even the playing field for northern teams if games were played in the cold sometimes in the playoffs?

Can anyone catch up to the 5 or 6 teams in college football?

-Watching the championship game reminds you of how far Nebraska is away, but they are not alone.

-How much, if any would expanding the playoffs help? What is more important to you, an entertaining product or crowning the best team throughout the season?

-Can you ever consider a one loss team the greatest of all-time?

-Are you less interested in the national scene when Nebraska isn’t competitive?
