12. Duper Bowl
For an event that won’t be light on pomp and pizzazz, Bill Hancock didn’t really pull out the stops when he dubbed the new college football playoff the “College Football Playoff.” While that minimalist moniker works just fine, we do think the College Football Championship Game could use a re-tooling.
If college football does want to create its own Super Bowl, it needs a game title to match what should be a highly palpable atmosphere at Jerry World on January 12th. Here are a few ideas.
Trolling the NFL is the first logical route.
