To the player, there is no noticeable difference between the Tropical Smoothie Cafe Frisco Bowl and the College Football Playoff National Championship game.

For the college player who plans to play in the NFL, he should treat the TaxAct Camellia Bowl the same as the Rose Bowl.

They are the same.

On Monday night, Alabama faced Georgia in the college football title game that featured all the big names available on both rosters. Future NFL players were all over that field in Indianapolis, but they should have stayed safe on the sidelines.

In the first half, Alabama’s top receiver Jamison Williams apparently injured his knee when he landed awkwardly after a catch. He was taken to the locker room shortly after leaving the field.

The BCS Plus 2 football tournament is college football’s last safe zone, when it should be just as vulnerable.

If the player wants to get paid, don’t fall for the title.

(If the player wants to play a big game, have fun with their friends and take on bad, bad men in what will be a life time experience to remember, as you were.)

The risk of injury in the Lending Tree Bowl should be the same as in the Orange Bowl.

If you have your highlight reel, skip it.

The view of Ole Miss quarterback Matt Corrall suffering from a sprained ankle in the Sugar Bowl was hateful because, “who cares about the Sugar Bowl?” “

The idea was that he should have avoided the bowl game in the first place, like Pittsburgh quarterback Kenny Pickett, who opted out of the Peach Bowl.

Despite what the NFL says, it doesn’t matter if these players appear in these games. NFL teams will always find a way to justify choosing or skipping a player.

A bowl of any title won’t matter.

Former Penn State linebacker Micah Parsons and Purdue wide receiver Rondale Moore have retired from all of the 2020 college football seasons due to COVID concerns.

Parsons became the 12th pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, and he’s the best-in-class rookie. Moore was a second-round pick and he’s been the Arizona Cardinals’ leading receiver this season.

Thanks to guys like Lincoln Riley and Brian Kelly, the latest example in college football of top coaches who have “opted out” from the rest of their season to take more lucrative jobs elsewhere, we know coaches are pulling away. don’t really laugh either.

Despite what fans are saying, there is no evidence that we won’t be watching a football game involving the names we know.

For the player, all of these playoff matches should be treated the same.

As college football slowly moves down a path that vaguely resembles college basketball, those who run (ruin?) The sport will eventually have to craft a contract that entices players to simply play the games.

If it’s possible.

Players taking more control of their own situation by jumping on the NCAA transfer portal, trying to make money selling weightless pens on Instagram, or ditching the rest of the seasons, the football playoffs university make more and more sense and expansion will not solve it. .

When college football embraced this pseudo playoff slice, executives and administrators hadn’t anticipated that the best players who quit this season would become all the rage.

With money now in the hundreds of thousands to millions, no one can fault a man for doing what he needs to do to protect his best chance at creating life changing wealth.

Watch potential former draft picks such as Notre Dame linebacker Jaylon Smith and Michigan tight end Jake Butt Suffers From Ripped ACL in their respective final bowling appearances, this only makes those who think the risk isn’t worth the risk more fear.

And those players suffered their respective injuries in two of college football’s most significant games, the Fiesta Bowl and the Orange Bowl.

If the player wants to play a big game, have fun with his friends, and be part of what will be a life-time experience, he has to treat the Gas-X Bowl the same as the Rose Bowl and play.

If the player wants to be paid, he must treat the Cotton Bowl the same as Viagra Bowl and not fall for the title.
