I can't agree with you more on that idea BF, the BCS is now obsolete. Ever since Auburn got screwed back in 2004, that got me thinking of an NFL
style, or even a Division II style, college playoffs. That is, the top twelve teams who would be eligible for a BCS bowl game would be entered in the
playoffs. Matchups would be even numbered ranked teams versus odd numbered ranked teams. Of course, the games would most certainly have to be played
at a neutral site. That way you wouldn't have the "Our school is better thans yours" bantering.
Here's the problem with establishing a playoff system in College Football. The dean's, the officials, and the officials who run each conference do
not want a playoff system. The BCS ranksing are done by computer which in the first four to five years of the BCS wasn't a bad idea because you had
the clear champions or the upset in the making. Like with Ohio State beating the University of Miami four years ago or Texas embarrassing USC last
year. So if you were to get rid of the computer rankings, it could possibly lead to an even bigger mess.
It just blow my mind as to how many people still believe that the BCS is a feasible system to determine a National Champion. There was only one
proven way to determine who the true champions were. That is go back to the old system where the A.P. Poll and the U.S.A. Today Top 25 Coaches
Poll determined who got to play in the National Title Game. I will admit there were some controversy over the use of those two polls, but it beats a
computer poll any day of the week.
