    Major problem with NCAA football

    I feel something needs to change with NCAA football. Im sick and tired of every year seeing the exact same teams in the top 10. The issue is no recruits want to play for a "bad" team so all the best recruits go to top 10 schools. This ensures that the same schools year in and year out are always good, and everybody else sucks.

    Just once Id like to see a top ten that doesnt include either Alabama, Oklahoma, Florida, LSU, Oregon, USC, Texas, Ohio State, or Georgia. I think they need to institute some sort of draft or something to give teams like Temple, ULL, Toledo, San Diego State, Maryland, Minnesota, Ball state and others a fair chance at ELITE players so we dont get bored always seeing the same teams in the top 10.

    Maybe we could also make the top 10 every year ineligible to recruit until all the other teams are done recruiting or just prohibit them from being ranked the following year.

    You want to make high school KIDS have less choice on where to go to school? No way. Education is also a part of college ball.

    It would actually be good for kids. Most of the colleges who DO focus on studies are not very good at football so chances are they would get a better education going to those schools instead of going to a football mill like most of the top 10 teams

    You are over looking the fact that most kids who play college ball have no business at all being in college. They are idiots who are only there because they have to be to get into the NFL after three years. You still wouldn't be getting good players going to Harvard, Penn, Duke, or many other respected academic schools because they can't meet the strict standards of entry which aren't going to be lowered for the football team. Stanford is one of the few that has found a balance between being decent at football and only recruiting high standard kids. Most kids go to college just to be in the football mill, not for an education. Look at the comical courses some of these idiots take. North Carolina just got busted for basically making up classes for their football players and essentially making an entire degree program just for their use with classes that involve submitting an essay for literally the ENTIRE grade. And that is freaking North Carolina, a fairly respected school and not a football powerhouse by any means. Imagine what they are doing at Bama, Ohio State, Michigan, etc.
