Agreed. And maybe it will force the higher ups to allow the "champion " to enter the FCS playoffs

This is the league that a few years ago adopted a coin flip as the way to break a tie and designate a champion/ representative to the NCAA.

I am confident the odds are at least 50/50 they would adopt something similar to break a multiple football tie. And that will only subject us to more derision.

They could do the least recently won method of choosing the official champion.

I expect you were thinking about the Big 10 example.

Of course it could mean you have to sit out a long while after that.

Could you imagine being a player, lose one game all year and lose your title/ring on a coin flip? I can’t think of a much less rewarding result than that.

Calvin, I must be falling behind on my Ivy history. When and in what context did the League adopt a coin flip to choose a representative to the NCAA tournament?

Do you remember in the great book, "Friday Night Lights," when three teams finished tied for a conference championship, the conference decided to select its representative by having the three coaches flip three coins simultaneously? The coach whose heads/tail coin result did not match the other two coaches would be the rep to the Texas state tournament.

The media and public interest of course grew to a manic frenzy. The chaos became so overwhelming that the conference opted to hold the simultaneous coin flip late at night at a remote truck stop in the Texas desert. One coin, upon being flipped a big too hard, bounced and rolled under a piece of a restaurant equipment. Buzz Bissinger, author and famed University of Pennsylvania leather cross dresser, did a great job describing the frenzy as the assembled television cameras chased the errant quarter across the diner floor. Classic Texas football.

I think it was a spring sport, maybe lacrosse before that tournament got started?
