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.
