Hi guys, love the show. Wanted to talk about the infiltration of the word “bye” into the world of college football. Just because the NFL pundits mis-use the word doesn’t mean college football has to. A “bye” is a word with a definition: it means the transfer of a competitor or team directly to the next round of a competition or tournament in the absence of an assigned opponent. When a team is not scheduled, they are not receiving a “bye” or being advanced to the College Football Playoff; they are “Idle” or “Off” or they are said to have an “Open Date”. There are plenty of words that mean not playing this week, “bye” just isn’t one of them.
Well “bye” is the universally accepted word to use when describing a team’s week off.
