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?

-Can Ohio State beat Alabama in the national championship? Were you surprised they beat Clemson?

-Notre Dame made the playoffs, but was blasted again…how close are they to actually having a chance to win a playoff game?

-Why are Iowa State and Northwestern winning at impressive levels?

Notre Dame gets made fun of a lot for their lack of success in big games, but wouldn’t Nebraska fans kill for what they have?

-ESPN Stats & Info put out a stat that Notre Dame is 0-7 since 1998 in BCS or New Year’s Six games, being outscored by 161 points and all 7 losses being by 14+ points

-That’s not a fun thing to deal with, but think about the 8 straight bowl losses Nebraska had at one time in its history and compare that to now…that doesn’t seem so bad, does it?

The CFP is set, with Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State and Notre Dame clinching berths

-Notre Dame got smoked by Clemson on Saturday, but remained ahead of Texas A&M and others for the final spot….and Ohio State barely got by Northwestern…will either of those teams have any shot vs. Bama/Clemson?
