 Post subject: NIT...for football

I'm sure many of you have heard of the NIT for bball, a private tournament that invites team to play at the end of the season.


Why can't this be organized at the DIa football level to show the country just how profitable and better the playoff system is?

Granted, the BCS bowls are reflective of an NIT that hasn't existed since at least the 1950s...

So no one thinks this is possible?

Like, for example, you could go after some of the higher mid-majors and lower BCS teams and have them in a tourny instead of going to some crappy bowl.

Maybe: Indiana, Illinois, UConn, Arizona, Baylor, Kentucky, Kansas, and Duke?

Bisonfan01234,
Having a tournment would extend the season beyond 12 games. This would require NCAA approval. The college presidents control the NCAA, not the ADs. The presidents WILL NOT allow it. They rightly believe that to do so would bing on the playoff the the fans want, but that they oppose. I am not taking a side as to whiter or not it would be a good idea; only that the NCAA would NOT approve.
