      Hawaii WILL score their points, but so will Georgia. Obvious edge to Ga, but Hawaii will make it very entertaining.

        Like West Virginia made it intertaining a few years ago when they played Georgia in the same bowl game. (BCS) Teams may have to find out the hard way like that team in the middle of nowhere did last season. Go Warriors! Win it for the WAC!

          One equalizer: playing in a dome. Hawaii doesn't need to contend with adverse weather.

            Has a run-and-shoot offense ever been successful against a remotely decent defense? Sure they put up 60+ on Charleston Southern but hell, Nevada gave them all they could handle.

              And you can say the same for Fresno State in their (Hawaii's) own backyard.

                If Hawaii had had one close game against a mediocre team that would be one thing. However, they had to come from behind at the very end three or four times against such teams. The only quality team that they played also had a thin resume and it is a little hard to judge based on that one quality game. Of course, if a few balls had not bounced just right at the end LSU could be 8-4 or even 7-5. There were no dominant teams. So what, is that a bad thing?

                Some people have the notion that having a multi-game playoff (three rounds?), which would determine the best team. It would not, it would just determine which of those teams won three games.

                  That would be great to me because more upsets could happen. At least NCAA Basketball has their fair share of them in the early rounds of the "Big Dance." If the best team does not win, shame on them.

                    Why have rounds at the WC or OG then? Just proves you can win 3 or more races.

                      There is no perfect system. The NCAA basketball tournament puts a premium on who's hot at the end of the season at the expense of the regular season. In basketball, a team can theoretically go into its conference tournament winless for the year and still win the national championship. Division 1-A football puts a premium on the regular season and a team's entire body of work, regardless of how hot they are at the end of the season. Think of it as a class in which the final exam will account for 75% of your grade versus a class in which the final exam will account for 5% of your grade.

                        Or even less if upsets are thrown in the mix. That should help NCAA D-1 Football because the "not so big schools" would have a shot at the title. I love the parity in sports (in general) and I hope the trend continues in years to come. That means teams (no matter how big or small they are) need to win games to advance, instead of having people or computers give it to them. Now lets see what Hawaii can do to Georgia.

                          Peaking for a championship performance is the usual mode. The only cases I can think of where that's NOT true are sports where the seasonal "championship" is a late "overlay" where no such championship previously existed, e.g., golf and tennis. The only team sport where that might have been true is baseball up to the addition of divisions, and certainly is no longer the case. Auto racing is the only other exception, but again fans tend to pay more attention to individual race champions, e.g., Indy, Daytona, than the season champ. And certainly ALL of the other NCAA champs assume peaking for a major competition (which is why the Regionals are so important, instead of time trialing during the season.) Be ready at the right time is more of a mark of a champion than being "almost" good enough most of the time.

                              Colt's O-line simply can't protect him. You can't have much of an aerial attack, if all you see are black jerseys in your face.
