Smell of this Rose stinks

Only in big-time college football can a semifinal round produce three teams for a national championship game.

That's one of the proposals under consideration for a college football playoff. Seriously.

The Big Ten and Pac-12 are so bent on carrying on the tradition of the Rose Bowl, they're willing to make a mockery of a college football playoff.

Let's go through it ... quickly.

An idea that's been discussed is preserving the Rose Bowl matchup between the Pac-12 and Big Ten should the two conferences have a team or teams ranked in the final four. In that instance, those two would play in the Rose Bowl, and the next four teams would play in two other playoff games.

The finalists for the championship game would then be chosen among those three winners.

It's utterly amazing grown men - powerful men in the world of sports - are being paid huge contracts to think of such nonsense.
