Présentation de l'éditeur

In his uniquely informative and entertaining style, renowned college football writer Stewart Mandel provides a comprehensive guide to college football's new era. He examines why it took 145 years for the sport to adopt a simple four-team playoff. He demystifies the confusing rotation in which the Rose, Sugar and four other bowls will take turns hosting semifinal games. He examines the criteria selection committee members like Tom Osborne and Condoleezza Rice will use to determine the playoff field and other bowl participants. And he applies the new system to previous seasons to illustrate the many ways fans will experience the sport differently going forward.

Pay close attention. There’s a quiz at the end.

Stu's follow-up to his 2008 book "Bowls, Polls, and Tattered Souls" is another triumph. It's entertaining from the first page and doesn't let up. Great quick read.

great simple pictorial explanation of the new CFP and what would have happened in previous years....at the end of the short book describing the CFP, you can even be your own selection committee with an end of season mock selection of teams to the 6 bowls the selection committee will choose.

The Orange Bowl multiple scenarios with the ACC, Notre Dame, Big 10 as hosts or participants is also explained.

The non P5 selection will always go to either the Peach, Cotton, or Fiesta - unless they are ranked in the top 4 and then they could be in the Rose, Sugar, Orange if they are one of the 2 playoff sites for the given year a non P5 team is ranked 4 or better.

I missed one, after going brain dead and not including a conference champion that was ranked below a higher ranked team that had other conference champions already in the mix.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 This is a great book and a must-read for any college football fan 27 août 2014
Par Adam P. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is a great book and a must-read for any college football fan. I follow countless websites and message boards about college football, but I was utterly amazed by how little I actually knew about the new College Football Playoff ("CFP"). Too many people, including announcers and other football pundits, think the playoff is nothing more than the BCS with a "plus one" game. The new process, however, is significantly different from the BCS and could very well have a huge impact (for better or worse) on the sport. This book walks through everything about the CPS -- from the history of playoff movements, to the selection committee, to the potential changes we might see after a few years in this system. It is a compendious and useful book.

The book explained the playoff well. It's a confusing subject but Mr. Mandel made it easy to understand.

It was a good read. I enjoyed the history of the poll 'n bowl system and reading about the blatant hypocrisy of Bill Hancock. The history of the playoff was good too. I didn't know that Michigan State's head coach in 1966 suggested an 8 team playoff with all conference champions and several wild card teams. We're still not there!!!

The nuances of how the committee selects the bowls on New Year's (or New Year's Eve depending on the year) was very informational!

I feel like it might be outdated now as media coverage has saturated the event and much of the book is now common knowledge. I bought it used, and it was more than worth the small price that I paid early in the season.
