    I hope we get slotted for the Fiesta Bowl in 2019-2020. Will be a lot of fun to hit up Phoenix and New Orleans that year!

    Having this class be the catalyst that improves on field performance, leading us to the 2020/2021 semifinal in the Rose Bowl sounds perfect!

    Lots of inconsistency in number of days between the semi's and the Championship Game. Ranges from 7 to 15 days.

    Why would they keep it on NYE in ANY year?? I don't get it. The absolute worst scheduling.

    Yeah, I don't get that. You pretty much forget about college football by the time the championship game is on. I'd prefer they do the semis a week earlier and have the championship game early in the new year. Hate going from bowl games daily to a week off before the most important one.

    Why wouldn't they put 2016-17 and 2022-23 on Friday and 2021-22 on Saturday to avoid NYE? It almost seems like they still want the games on NYE, but some years, the calendar doesn't cooperate with doing that and having it on a Friday or Saturday.

    Why they ever thought having games on New Years Eve was a good idea, is beyond me. So stupid

    So the plan is to change the scheduling strategy so that all play off games and the championship game will never be on New years day?
    So the effec is none of the crittical games in CFB will be on the most important day of CFB.

    Way to "take back New Years day". I would call them tards but that's an insult to the retarded.

    Rose Bowl thinks it has a birthright to the 2 Pacific/5 Eastern slot on NYD and the Sugar has laid claim to the 8 Eastern slot. As long as you don't get them to soften their stance, and you won't as the 2 have tie ins with the 3 most important conferences, NYD is only in play for the semis when the Rose and Sugar are hosting.
