Spring should be for knockout tourneys and friendly matchesJanuary 12 2011 at 2:28 PM
Response to Spring season
I may be all alone here, but I think that the competitive season shouldn't be squeezed into the fall semester. Teams should play their conference rivals TWICE, once at home and once away, during the fall semester. Then the spring could feature group stages and knockout tournaments (similar to the FA cup or Champions/Europa league) for top teams from each division/conference, the number depending on the relative strength of each. If set up right, some lower division team could potentially "win it all" similar to how teams from outside the top flight league have won the FA cup in the past. Teams who don't make the cut(s) can schedule "friendly" matches with other teams (not necessarily college teams or even from the same division) in their region as is done currently.
More than anything else, this would really boost the prowess of colleges and universities either in the South (like here in Georgia) or with an indoor stadium, whether on campus or nearby. Some may suggest that northern colleges without indoor stadiums would be unable to compete, but if they can do it in Russia, why not here?
