    Yea lets just have all 119 teams play to know who the real champion should be. An the heisman trophy? Forget about it is all opinionated. What a meaningless label to be named the best player in college football without a real system to determine who is the best.

      Wait, so you think the Heisman actually goes to the best player?

      • You dont have to worry about Boise going to the NC because New Mexico State will beat them anyways. D-Unit knows it will happen too.

        • It's all about California & more people watching more TV screens on FB Saturdays with the revenue that brings in the TV contracts.

          That's why the Pac 10 gained Colorado & Utah. The announcers pointed out that there were more players from California than any non-Idaho state on the Boise St. Broncos, recruiting the Golden State is very important to them, & the Utah schools including BYU & the Mtn. West with the TCU exception.

          The WAC & Mtn. West are losing programs b/c of the sparse populations of Utah, Idaho, New Mexico, etc.

            Pretty much this. Almost every good mid-major school recruits heavily in California. There is so much unsigned high school talent (most of which go the JUCO route) in this state every single year, it's disgusting.

            The Pac-10 schools recruit in the Bay area, the LA area, and in Orange County. Somehow, they still haven't figured out that there is a **** ton of talent in the rest of the state. Boise, Utah, and Utah State are more than happy to gobble up the leftovers.

            • It really comes down to population, mainly. The 'big 3' states for football talent are Cali, Texas and Florida. 3 of the 4 most populous states. New York is kind of the exception, but that's probably for a combination of reasons, including geography.

                It certainly doesn't hurt... Ohio and Pennsylvania are certainly very populated and probably round out the Top 5.

                After that though, Louisiana has to be up there and it's not a terribly big state in terms of population.

                  Georgia > Ohio and Penn

                  It's true. Not that either of us could be biased! :D

                    Louisiana is definitely top 10 in terms of overall talent as you can watch any SEC game and at least one team has a big time player from the state. Even LSU, who pretty much has the state on lock when it comes to recruiting, still misses out on recruits that sign elsewhere like Alabama, Florida, Texas, Texas A&M, Arkansas, Ole Miss, USC, and others.

                      • Eh, Georgia is in the same group. It's FL/TX/CA then LA/GA/OH/PA/SC then everyone else.

                        That is correct comahan
