Colt's Playoff Stipulation

By Adam Caparell - December 12, 2007

Colt Brennan's all for a playoff in college football. But first, a few things have to change, starting with the length of the regular season.

"I think they have to cut down the regular season if they want to do a playoff," Brennan said. "Maybe only 10 games in the regular season. I think that may be the only way that's fair."

The biggest reason Colt thinks the regular season needs to be cut down by two games (3 for Hawaii and anyone who plays the Warriors considering they're allowed to play 13 games) is rather simple: you can't ask a player to play potentially upwards of 16 games - depending on your playoff format - when you couple the wear and tear of the season with the academic requirements.

"You can't ask a student to play a ton of games, like 15 and 16 is too much, especially during finals and all that stuff," Brennan said. "It's too hard on the players."

Brennan, of course, won't ever see a playoff in college with this being his senior season. So what does the future hold for the record-breaking Hawaii quarterback? He figures to be a second round draft pick at the worst in April's NFL Draft, a draft that's going to heavy in senior quarterbacks. But what about after football?

The communications major has something in mind.

"I'm real excited about the possibility of playing football right now," Brennan said. "But when that time comes I'm going to do what seems right. But I can't imagine a better job, getting paid to watch college football and talk about it. It sounds like a lot of fun so I might be into it."

And as well spoken and articulate as Brennan is, don't be surprised if he surfaces somewhere behind a mic down the road.
