If only college football had a commissioner to solve the major problems in this great sport and tweak the minor ones.

I would nominate myself for this position, but such an undertaking deserves a 10-year contract.

And at this stage of the game -- once you turn 70, you're in overtime -- I don't buy green bananas.
