    Helmet cams on every player that would give a close up for review to penalties, fumbles, interceptions, etc, of course the game will take 8 hours to play.

    Ha! And there is a pressure sensor in every helmet to determine the force of every hit. It is active in real time and if someone hits too hard they are ejected from the game. This may all sound crazy to some of you but this is where we are headed.

    Only 8 hours? So you think we won't have commercials anymore? Because with commercials it will be more like 12-14.

    IMO, most of you are watching too many sci-fi movies.

    In 10 years? I don't think the game will look much different.

    Great QBs will always be the difference in offensive success and a great defense will usually win a championship.

    In 100 years? Yeah some of you may be right.

    Participation in football at the high school level is in decline. How much will that alone impact the future of the college game?

    With regard to college football, I think the parity that exists in college basketball already will become better in college football. Blue Blood programs like Alabama who have managed to hold on even when other blue blood programs have fallen will also see their stature change. Not fast, but it will come more in line with what other programs are doing. The playoffs might expand as well, and the conference title games will become less important.

    I think the game will eventually become much like the 7-on-7 competitions with lots of scoring and more restrictions on defense in the name of player safety. Basically flag football. People will be like: "Yeah, they used to have these big behemoths out there, some over 300 lbs, crushing each other on every play. And the way they ran into each other was brutal. It was really primitive."

    I do find it interesting that since so much of the revenue comes from TV coverage, and since you can sit at home and watch any game on any Saturday, that the cost of tickets has actually gone up instead of down. You would think that as demand goes down, so does the price. That's kind of basic economics. But that hasn't happened. Instead, it's gotten to the point where attending a game in person is cost prohibitive for a lot of people, especially if you want to take your kids or family to the game. I guess maybe demand for tickets has not decreased, but it seems like it would with the technology we have today. You would think that as TV coverage expands, attendance would go down and the size of the stadiums would actually get smaller. But that's not the case, at least not in the SEC.

    When you look at how things have changed within the last ten years, I can only imagine that the face of college football will have changed quite a bit in the next ten. These transfers are truly going to change the way you go about building your roster, and a team like OU, that has a rent-a-qb every single year may be the norm moreso than the way things are right now.

    I can see chips sewn in the tips of footballs and receivers in yard markers, chains and end zone pylons to determine first downs, TDs and spots on field.

    January of 2030.....

    • The Instagram/Facebook Top 35 will come out each week
    • 50% of the vote will be determined by how many "likes" each team got during the week
    • Helmet Sensors will determine any head to head contact
    • Defensive player who commits the contact will be forced to play the rest of the game with one hand tied behind his back
    • A second offense will result in him/her having to perform 80 hours of community service on Saturdays in December and January
    • Central Florida will have joined the B1G after the departure of Maryland, who rejoins the ACC, after the departure of Wake Forest who finally gives up football
    • Vanderbilt, Rice, Stanford, Northwestern, Duke, Tulane, and Notre Dame form a conference -- where they only play each other 2x per year....and Notre Dame gets in the 8-team playoffs annually as a Conference Champion, their slogan?

      "We're the only TRUE Conference where we play each team TWICE, Home and Home each year" -- forcing the Big12 to rethink their current (11 year old) slogan....

    Even so, there will still have to be some human judgment. Chip showing football crosses goal line means nothing if his knee was down.
