Today the NCAA announced the name of the new playoff formatted college football season, but I’ve already told you that title. Did you miss it? Just look in the title of this article. Yes, you’re seeing that right. The new name for the college football playoff series is just that: College Football Playoff.
A spokesperson for the NCAA made it clear that the goal of the name was to get as far away from BCS (Bowl Championship Series) as possible. Well, if BCS is a Lamborghini, CFP is a 1963 Studebaker Station Wagon. If you didn’t know, that car is known as the worst selling car in the history of cars.
Okay, maybe I’m not giving the creators of CFP enough credit. Speaking of, who exactly were its creators? Oh, a marketing company? Premier Sports Management gets all the credit for creating this name. A marketing company actually got paid to come up with the name College Football Playoff.
So from now on when referring to the newly established 14-team playoff, we’ll have to use the CFP acronym.
I’ll sit back and wait for all of the new, probably more creative, mock acronyms to start rolling in here soon.
At least we, as fans, can vote for the new logo of the CFP. You can do that by clicking here. Please try to contain your excitement.
