I think the BCS system is fine. If a playoff system were developed, there would still be just as many arguments about which teams made the tournament. The idea of having the current BCS bowls as early round games in a tournament completely takes away the tradition behind the bowl, because if you win the Rose Bowl, you aren't considered the Rose Bowl champion, you've just advanced to the second round.

A playoff system wouldn't be bad, but I just don't see it as an improvement over the current scheme.

A playoff would be so much fun to watch, and as unrealistic as it may be due to TV deals and sponsors, im all for it

BCS works best for the national champion when there are two teams from major conferences who are both undefeated.

EX: USC vs Texas

What do you do in the BCS if there are 4 undefeated teams? Though unlikely it could happen. Or what if there isn't an undefeated team and a bunch of teams who have lost 1-2 games. Then the system is very controversial.

BCS me so everyone game is incredibly important. Unless you only have a 4-team playoff (which will still bring controversy). You pretty much can't win, some team is always going to feel snubbed regardless of what the system is.

I'm not against the BCS but if they went to a playoff system I wouldn't mind that either

College football has the best regular season of any sport. A playoff would dilute the importance and meaning of the regular season. I would keep the BCS. The ONLY system i might be ok with would be a plus one system....only so 2004 Aub/Okl/USC would not happen again.....

I think an 8 team playoff would be the best post season.

I disagree with that statement.

Those great rivalry game such as Michigan-OSU, Oklahoma-Texas and USC-UCLA would still be HUGE draws.

Playoffs wouldn't take away from the regular season and they would ADD great games.

It would in a way. In college football to even get to the NC you have to win every game during the season. If there was a playoff those games would lose value and you could lose 1, even 2 games and still get a chance to win the championship.

well your free to disagree, but my statement still stands. A 3 lost Colorado team in 2001 would have been in the playoff. Which means the first time, no second time, no third time they lost would not have meant much. The USC faithful would not be as hurt from a lost to UCLA, because they would still be in the hunt. There would be resting players and players looking forward to the playoffs. No more would teams play for the season, but play to make the playoffs. So losses would not hurt as much and wins would not be as special. Really, do you think the OSU/Mich game would have been as huge had there been a playoff afterwards? that no matter who won both would still have a shot at the NC. That means aside from pride and tradition, the game did not mean nearly as much to the overall SEASON.

It WOULD dilute the meaning of the reg season. I LOVE college football, more than the NFL. I do not want to see the best reg season in all of sports sacraficed for a fun 2-3 week playoff.
