Who has more yards in this game, Swift or Cook? How many carries for Zeus? Not gonna lie, I’ll probably be watching more of Texas A&M vs Clemson. But of course Go Dawgs!!

This was some of you early in this game. You know who you are. Take a long look in the mirror and try not to let it become a habit...

Say what?  It’s still early in the season.  I could watch them play Dooley County’s middle school team for all 60 minutes.

I agree with the announcers.  FBS power 5 teams need to get off these cupcake games.  I watched maybe 15 plays of this Georgia beat down because its not interesting one bit.  

I hate cupcake games. Always have. It's really a waste of time.

There is zero incentive to not schedule them though and a lot of these smaller schools rely on the money they get from playing these games to fund their athletics department budget. So I don't see it ever changing.

You are correct.  There is really no way around playing the games.  Even if say Georgia cuts back and plays just one cupcake game.  That punishes financially the schools who could use the money.  The only solution, which would never happen, would be to cut scholarships in half from FBS schools and FORCE some of the talent down to the lower tiered divisions.

That's not a solution. It's not even a good idea. A far more feasible option would be some sort of revenue sharing model from the tv contracts. The current ESPN contract with the SEC alone, for football and basketball, is worth more than $2 billion.

Thats highlighting the fundamental problem of college sports. There is NOTHING amateur about it, thus the power schools cannot be forced to share revenue and have no incentive to do so.   Notre Dame is the prime example of this.  They pick and choose what conference to be in across different sports and remain independent when it suits them.  The NCAA is a front, has no real power over the schools.
