I'm not against a playoff, it would be awesome to have a CFB playoffs and an undisputed champ.....I just think it will suck to kiss the tradition of bowl games good bye. If they had a playoff the bowls would be completely watered down and unimportant, no way around that at all.
Well, I have a number of issues here.

Because you pretty much have to go unbeaten to guarantee yourself a shot at at title, very few teams are willing to schedule tough out of conference games. I addressed this in the changes I'd like to see short of a playoff system in that I think games against 1-AA opponents should be eliminated and something should be done to encourage tougher out of conference games.

And there are just so many bowls already that most of them are extremely watered down. You only need to go .500 if you're from a BCS conference and you're pretty much guaranteed a spot in a low level bowl. And even the bigger bowls don't always get the best teams.....a few of the ACC and Big East winners recently have had a number of losses and weren't ranked in the top 10, yet they get to play in the "important" and "traditional" bowls.....blegh.

Give me playoffs with all the teams playing tougher schedules.

ACC and Big East champs have always gone to those bowls though. The Big East used to a little better though since they had Miami and Va Tech and Boston College. You don't have to schedule tough OOC games, but almost all the good teams still do (except the SEC schools really, but they have a really tough league so it's not that big a deal).

It would be great and all to have a postseason with all the top teams playing each other and an unquestioned champ, no doubt. The only issue I have is that they're trying to take away or at least water down greatly a lot of the traditions that make college football so great and unique from other sports.

I think the college system could stand for a whole giant reform, but it's damn profitable as it is right now, so I don't expect anything like that.

That said, eliminating the preseason poll just flat out makes sense. It should happen.
