Colin Cowherd thinks the sport of college football needs a commissioner – and the FOX Sports 1 radio host thinks he has the perfect platform to run on.
The sport of college football is in a state of flux right now. Some conferences have announced they will be playing league-only schedules this year, while others have yet to make any kind of decisions.
It’s clear that the sport is hurting itself by not having one clear leader. Cowherd, and many others, believe college football would benefit from a commissioner or president.
The FOX Sports 1 host revealed his college football leadership platform on Friday. He has named five ways to make the sport better.
Cowherd’s five proposed changes/rules for college football are:
- No neutral site games
- Only 1 non-Power 5 opponent on your schedule
- Everyone plays 10 conference games
- The College Football Playoff will NOT expand past four games
- Only 12 bowl games

The first four suggestions are solid, even though many will disagree with the no playoff expansion. Most believe the ideal number for the College Football Playoff is six or eight teams.
The only 12 bowl games is where Cowherd will lose most people, though. Bowl season is great and big and a big money driver for the sport. Limiting bowl season to 12 games seems like a bad idea.
What do you think of Cowherd’s platform?
