What happens is northern teams are built to play in bad weather and the south has home field advantage in the championship games. Bills went through it drafting Roscoe, McGahee from the U and they fell apart.
A lot of players that grew up and played HS and college ball in the south went on to have great careers on northern teams in the NFL. Why didn't they "fall apart"?
Maybe the reason southern states dominate college football has more to do with the southern states are the hotbeds of HS football talent, more so than any other region in the country.
As for Roscoe and McGahee, please.
Roscoe was an undersized WR, and wasn't physical.
McGahee had self motivational issues. When he felt he had something to prove, he would put in the time and effort.
Once he reached that goal, he stopped.
What they need is a 64 team playoff. Top 4 get a pass, everyone else starts off in overtime rules. Rose Bowl, Orange Bowl, Big House and Yankee Stadium are the venues on New Years Day. It won't work because college administrators are senile corrupt monsters.
It will not work because its a stupid idea. It has nothing to do with college admins.
