LAMM AT LARGE: Love/Hate relationship with college football

todaySeptember 30, 2021

I love college football. I hate college football.
When college football is at its best, its great. But  college football is at its worse, it sucks. I’m not talking about the quality of the teams. I’m talking about scheduling.
Last week, there were five nonconference games with a combined score of 321-21. Why is Pitt playing New Hampshire (77-7), Ohio State playing Akron (59-7), Miami playing Central Connecticut (69-0), Coastal Carolina playing UMass (53-3) and Alabama playing Southern Miss  (63-14)? Writing a big check and getting a guaranteed victory isn’t sport..
There isn’t anything that can be done about conference games like Georgia beating Vanderbilt (62-0) and Texas routing Texas Tech (70-35), but nonconference games should be against teams with equal resources.

They should have laid a foundation for success. […]
