    There is a problem with the Bowl Championship Series, but it’s not the one you probably think. College football doesn’t need a playoff. A traditional playoff system – an eight-team or even four-team bracket – brings nothing in the way of advantages over the current system and probably would make things considerably worse.

    Boise, Idaho — It's 1,838 air miles from here to Atlanta, as the Delta non-stop 737 crow flies. Dan Miller's sojourn to Sanford Stadium will last a wee bit longer. He's flying in from Baghdad, a three-day, four-country odyssey, in order to see his son Tad and his Boise State teammates open the season Sept. 3 at Georgia. And you thought game-day traffic on 316 lasts an eternity. "I would not miss it for the world!" Miller, a retired police lieutenant with the Boise Police Department, who's helping to train Iraqi police officers, wrote in an exuberant e-mail. "It will...
