Default B1G proposes great playoff plan

PLAN

Four teams.

Home games based on seed.

Championship game bid out like the Super Bowl.

I love.

Let's get it popping. The thoughts of a final 4 would make for some primetime television BUT travel could prove to be a pain if you're asking a team to play a conference title game then turn around and head west or come east a week later.

B1G and fans would love this. I can't wait to hear some of these fans talk about having teams come play in Columbus in January.

I'd love a playoff and a final four would be pretty good. There's rarely been a time when we had more than 4 teams that could seriously make a case for being in the NC at the end of the season.

Let's just hope it just stays between the top 4 BCS teams and nobody complains if we get another Bama/LSU scenario or OSU/UM. If two teams from the same conference deserve it then let it be.

I was hoping a playoff tournament like Division II or w/e they are called now. At least a 12 team playoff tournament like the NFL would be fine. But it a least it's a start. Too bad it will start in 2014.

Honestly 8 max is all we need. If you can't keep it at 3 losses tops chances are you aren't championship material

Only reason B1G teams want home games is to try and have a weather advantage over the other schools.

And the only reason SEC and southern schools don't want seeding to determine where games are played is so that they can be assurred of never having to travel that far or into the northern states where it's cold.

I know I'm a fan of a Big Ten team, but at least this idea is attempting to make things fair. Let's be honest, more often than not a team like Florida or Alabama will be the higher seed over Michigan or OSU, so the game will be played in Florida or Alabama. But in the off chance that Michigan is 2nd and Florida is 3rd, how fair is it to have that game played in Atlanta or Miami instead of Ann Arbor?

I actually wouldn't mind if they kept neutral sites for the games, as long as it's assured that the sites are actually neutral and some stadiums north of the Mason-Dixon line actually get to host. Make it so that locations aren't pre-determined going into the season, so that it isn't said that Pasadena gets the 1v4 game, and then have USC make the 4th seed. Have 3 locations determined (say, Atlanta, Pasadena, Lambeau) and then if the final 4 are 1. Florida 2. Wisconsin 3. USC 4. Texas, put Florida-Texas in Pasadena or Lambeau, then put Wisconsin-USC in Atlanta. But I know, no one is going to want to play in the cold except Big Ten teams.

Also just wanted to add that with a playoff, the whole excuse of "they shouldn't have to play the post season games in the cold" that goes along with bowl games will be gone. It wouldn't be a reward like bowl games are.

You mean like the neutral site NC game for LSU the last 3 times in NOLA?

The homefield means you earned it during the season, which destroys the bowl fan's argument about the importance of the regular season being lessened with a playoff.

It makes sense to me. It works for the NFL and every other college division, why not for CFB?

I also like the idea of having the NC game be bid on like the Super Bowl. I think the playoff and championship game would make CFB even bigger and better.

Put the NC game on a Saturday and you have the makings of another SB like party day regardless of whom is playing.

Its better than what we have now, but still bad and unfair. I don't understand the point of having 120 D-I teams yet only like 80 of them can compete for this championship.

They haven't been relavent in a decade and don't say they made a BCS game this year because the game was anything but a BCS game!

What is bad and unfair?

You can't have a 64 team tournament in football. The game is too brutal.

There are simply too many FBS division teams. Lots of 2nd tier teams that have no business being in the same division.

He said the teams would be picked from the current pool of BCS teams to play in the playoff.

Basketball has way more teams competing than football does, for a championship. I never mentioned having a 64 team tournament.

Why can't the conference winners compete in a playoff? Before are all teams were at least allowed to compete for the NCAA Championship, until a third party came and decided who is allowed and who is not.

I'd definitely take it. As some have pointed out, may be better systems, but 4 teams wouldn't dilute much and some arguments would be answered at the very least. You can argue venues and the timeline, but just getting to 4 teams for 2014 would be incredible!

Exactly. And as Wetzel said, it's a radical shift away from the ridiculous and ancient bowl system. Why give the bowls the money the schools be taking in?

Also, it would only start at 4, and probably grow to 8, 12 tops.

WRT BCS only schools, I doubt if that sticks.

If the schools were smart enough they would eliminate the third party/middle man and make their own official NCAA champ with playoff and all. They would make way more money then they are now.

Jesus, it was just an example. Should I have used Michigan St., who has been even less relevant than Michigan in the last decade? I like Michigan St., but seriously hate their bandwagon fans that think because of the last 2 years they are some elite program.

And just because for no reason you've decided to act like a twunt, a decade is 10 years. 6 years ago Michigan was as high as #2 in the polls, played OSU for a spot in the NC game, went to the Rose Bowl (a BCS bowl, in case you are too ignorant to realize), and finished the season ranked 8th.

For the record, in the past decade (again, that would be 10 years), Michigan has 2 big ten championships, tied for 2nd most in the past decade with Wisconsin, and ahead of Michigan St.'s 1. Also, if I decided to make you look like even more foolish, I could probably look up and determine that in the last 10 years, Michigan probably has significantly more wins than Michigan St., even included the RichRod abortion.


But back on topic, I actually wouldn't mind having the conference champs play in a playoff, but then you get teams like the Big East winner making it over teams that are obviously better. I guess you have that in pro sports anyway, but there's is always going to be someone left to complain. At least it would be a step in the right direction. I think if you go 8 teams, then seeding to determine home field would be a must.

Basketball has way more teams competing than football does, for a championship. I never mentioned having a 64 team tournament.

Why can't the conference winners compete in a playoff? Before are all teams were at least allowed to compete for the NCAA Championship, until a third party came and decided who is allowed and who is not.

For the billionth time, no system (playoff scenario or no playoff scenario) will ever require only conference winners to be able to participate. It eliminates Notre Dame.

Secondly, just because you win your conference doesn't even mean you're really a top 10-15 team. All conferences are not equal. The SEC typically has at least 3 teams that would win every other conference out there undefeated. Furthermore, until all conferences are playing a conference championship game, it's a bogus discussion to have.


On the bright side, at least Ohio St. doesn't have to lose again to an SEC team in a bowl game next year.

How are ya today Joe Joe? :^)

I'd like to see an 8-team playoff. The top 8 BCS rated teams, regardless of conference. For an eight team tourney you'd need to have seven total games played. Use the existing bowls as quarterfinal/semi-final games so you keep the sponsorship in place. Since there are only five current bcs games, two others would be needed for this system... maybe the cotton and capital one bowls.

Or it forces Notre Dame to join a conference, if 119 teams can agree on something and Notre Dame can't, that really is their problem not the rest of College Football's problem.

To the contrary, if Notre Dame has a problem, it IS the rest of college football's problem. Are you new to college football? Nobody is "forcing" Notre Dame to do a damn thing. Otherwise it would've been done a long time ago.

Notre Dame's belligerence has been a pain in the a** for college football going on several decades now.

I have news for you... Notre Dame is more important and holds more clout than about 100 of those 119 teams combined. Notre Dame doesn't care what the San Jose St.'s, Maryland's, and Western Kentucky's agree to. Neither does anybody else in college football.

Furthermore, you're not going to get everybody in college football to agree to a conference winner only setup. Especially not the SEC. A conference winner only setup is only implemented with the intent of limiting the SEC... that's it.

There's no way that anybody with half a brain agrees to a system that lets an 8-4 Big-East Champ get into a playoff for the national title while a 1 loss SEC team would get left out.

The best thing about this playoff scenario that Jim Delaney and the Big-TenEleven have proposed here is the home stadiums hosting the playoff games in a +1 format. Which is what I said is the problem with a playoff scenario all along. People can't afford to travel all over the country to attend playoff games for their school.

However, the issue you run into with this is if a team like Boise St. ends up hosting a playoff game in their little 30,000 seat stadium against a team like Bama or Nebraska where there's going to be more fans from the visiting team than there are seats in their tiny stadium with that hideous blue turf.

And another thing, it's not like the Big-TenEleven can even agree on what they've proposed here. They just threw it out there in an attempt to poke their chest out and give the impression they're actually ready to compete with the SEC.

They threw the idea out there without even figuring out what they want to do with the Rose Bowl scenario that THEY created in cahoots with the Pac-10. The only reason all that was done in the first place was to keep Alabama out of the Rose Bowl to begin with since Bama kept going out there and winning it.

I say let the Big-TenEleven and the Pac-10 keep their "precious" Rose Bowl in tact between their two conference *champs* (lolz) and let the rest of the country play for the national title.

Let the Cotton Bowl take the Rose Bowl's place and make it like it used to be to begin with.
