Kap's Corner

Sunday - October 31st in the NFL

After a day off yesterday it's time to get back at it and handicap today's card in the NFL. The Bears are enjoying a bye week and getting ready to play the Buffalo Bills in Toronto next Sunday. Will Brett Favre start today against the New England Patriots? I fully expect him to start and play well. That is just what Brett Favre does. However, with both the Vikings and the Packers (who play at the New York Jets) facing tough games the Bears have a chance to pick up a full game on each of their division rivals.

So away we go....

Top Plays

Tampa Bay +3
Dallas -6.5
San Diego -4
Detroit -2

Best Bet

Oakland -2

Kap,
I agree with you that we need a playoff in college football. What do you think about this idea?
NCAA FOOTBALL PLAYOFFS
I have found a solution to the argument for a playoff at the division 1 level that makes everyone happy.
Use 5 major polls. BCS, AP, USA, ESPN and COACHES. Based on those polls you simply add the rankings for each team to get a total ranking. Example:
BCS AP USA ESPN COACHES
Oregon 1 1 1 1 1
Auburn 2 3 2 3 2

Oregon would have a ranking total of 5. Auburn’s ranking total would be 12. You do this for all 25 teams in the polls. You take the top 8 and play 1 vs. 8, 2 vs. 7, 3 vs. 6, and 4 vs. 5. If the season ended today this is what it would look like:
#1. Oregon vs. #8. Ohio State.
#2. Auburn vs. #7. Wisconsin.
#3. Boise State vs. #6. Utah
#4. TCU vs. #5. Alabama

Here is the bracket:

Oregon

Ohio State


TCU

Alabama


Auburn

Wisconsin


Boise State

Utah

You simply let them decide it on the field from that point. If you want to keep the bowls happy, there are 7 games total to determine the champion, they can rotate for a game each year. Now you have put emphasis on the polls and you have a playoff. The best of both worlds. Best of all it only takes 3 games to win the championship!
