Does a single game played against two teams that was selected by coaches that don't watch very many games, media outlets that vote on regional lines and computers that keep getting tinkered with when the BCS doesn't like the outcome, show you who the best team in the country is?

Why is Bama the second best team? That kick ass SEC slate they played? The fact they beat only two currently ranked teams one of which Arkansas that hasn't beat anyone themselves. Okie State had a much better resume.

I hear what you're saying about Bama, but is there any doubt that LSU is the best team in the country? What if we had a playoff and LSU had this horrible game and got upset in the first round by a team that got hot and wins the playoff? See how that diminishes the regular season? I'm for a playoff, but a small one that corrects what you're saying about disputes over who is #1 & 2. If you don't finish in the top 8, you don't any business getting a shot at the NC, IMO.

Read this article on ESPN today. I liked in the comments section were people stated that with a playoff system there needs to be games up north so that teams like the SEC have to play in 20 degree weather. I totally agree, if you're the best you should be able to perform in all climates.

I still don't believe a four team playoff would work, I feel it has to be at least 8 teams. I think 16 would be better.

But then you are just compounding the error in the system. Why does the subjective voting system play a role at all? How can you be sure that the team VOTED #9 is not better than the team VOTED #8? ("Rhetorical question Farley!")

If you want the regular season games to mean something, then take the conference winners and have a playoff.

exactly. take however many conference champions there are(i would make EVERY TEAM, INCLUDING NOTRE DAMN HORRIBLE join a conference), and have a playoff from that. let's say that's 8 conferences. bump up the season a week or two, cut a 15 week season(not including bowls) for those who have conference championships down to 14, but it'd all be moved up. so conference championship weekend would be 2 weeks earlier, then have playoffs the 2 weeks after that, and have national title on january 1st, and have other conference champs go into bcs bowls as consolation prizes.

big 12, big 10, sec, pac 12, mac/sunbelt, c-usa/mtn west, wac/big east, acc. they'll be 124 teams in division 1-a next year. 14-16 member conferences.. it's VERY doable. like kate upton.

Sounds like we are all in agreement.

It's a shame WE are not running college football.

I think all the conference champs should get into the playoff system with at large bids as well. Dont say that the smaller schools cant compete and cause an upset like in basketball. I do recall some small schools winning in the regular season against bcs schools. Appalachain state over michigan at the big house James Madison over Va Tech at lame stadium. Those where 1aa programs so I know an upset will happen here and there. You can't make a playoff system just for the big schools. Programs could build off of a first round upset. And it takes away the "little school" upsetting one of the "BIG DOGS". The bowl games could still be there with the playoff system. Just have the bowl games start after the first week of playoffs,play them during the weekdays before each roud of the playoffs, they have those games already. Then the final four be the orange, sugar, rose, and fiesta. Rotate the National Championship game between the sites.

I'd add in the cotton bowl so no site gets two big games in a year.

The large caliber games need to be on weekends, I agree. The fact that the orange bowl was on a Wednesday caused a lot of people I know not to be able to take off from work because it was right after the holidays and in the middle of the week.

Isn't this just the 1-AA playoff system? There conference champions (because this is 1-AA, they restrict this to scholarship conferences only) get auto bids, then the next at-large bids fill the 16 slots. Decide on the field, playoffs start Thanksgiving and end during "bowl week."

You'd want to move this a week after 1-AA runs their playoffs, just to keep the events separate. Both are televised.

The bowls can do their thing for teams not selected. I'd put the first round losers into the bowl mix too just to keep things interesting. After a while, the losers can't be recycled to the bowls..... that would kill off bowls, especially those running along side the later rounds.

Could make this work and keep the season ending the first week of January.

I was in favor of a 16 team tourny with conf champs and at large teams with games played at the higher seeds field until the national championship game and then have that at the Rose Bowl because they're the only Bowl that is on the up and up. The rest are dirty bastards and need left out in the cold.

But if that's too many I'd be for 8 teams all at large. No conf automatic bids. I would have a committee of 20 people from all over the nation from different regions. This committee would be open to anyone to apply for the committee. Admittance to the committee would be based on the persons knowledge of college football, how much they watch and their ability to be unbiased in their assessment of the sport. You would have the time left on the current BCS contract to find the committee members.

The following system was initially dreamed up when we had 32 bowl games, back in 2008.

Football Playoff system

My system debunks the whole notion of less money vs. the current bowl system and this system will determine the REAL national champion.

1) 16 team playoff system - take top 16 teams (who cares which poll we use, just use one they all have flaws but, down around the 16th team who really cares)

2) The first 8 games played are going to be played at current bowl locations, rotate through-out the current bowl system on a 4 year cycle, 4 x 8 = 32.

3) Higher ranked teams play at home through-out playoff.

4) National championship game played at a predetermined location.

Why is this system better?

1) Real champion is determined

2) More revenue - under this system 7 extra games played during this playoff system vs. current bowl system.
a)TV will get higher ranking - more advertising $
b)more bowl game locations (playoff fields) will sell out
c)teams that play home games will generate higher revenues
d)the National Championship will become a second super bowl; this NC location will get the highest bidder, cha ching.

You say -

1) Some teams have to possibly play in the cold - so what! And not always true. Only 6 maybe 7 (NC game) games will play in cold weather and for that matter who cares the fans will watch wherever the game is played. What about fans in Green bay and other NFL teams in the north, don't they sell out at -20 degrees.

2) Extra games for athletes - only 14 teams will play more than they would have played and normally they would be practicing during this time anyhow. Most of these teams would be playing in a game after Jan. 1 and they would be practicing during this whole time anyhow.

3) What about finals - they practice anyhow see point #2.

4) What about current bowl system - you will destroy it. No it won't. The fans will still travel go to see their favorite team play in a bowl game.

5) when do you play these games - right after the current season, have the playoffs before Christmas and the NC game after the last game in January - IMAGE THE HYPE.

6) Increased risk of injury - think about it, their might even be less. After each playoff game the athletes won't have anymore practice until spring.

Can you imagine -?
1) Hype = $
2) Real NC
3) This would make March Madness and the NCAA playoff on the same footing.
4) Possibility of fewer injuries
5) The fans would benefit
6) Advertisers would love it
7) Did I say a REAL NATIONAL CHAMPION!

Please pass this along to all AD's, coaches and anyone who will listen.

Bump
