What about the debate between who should be 4 or 5. Still I think it would be a step in the right direction. A Final Four of Football. FFF:biggrin9gp:
More college football. That certainly doesn't suck.
I still think it's a bit of a band aid yet it would be progress.
Finally some progress out of this BCS mess....Put the top 8 in a tourney and let the rest of the riff raff fight for the bowl games.
No...top 10 you fool.
HA! I want the top 12.
12? Just 12? It should be top 16!
Heck...put 'em all in a tournament.
Actually, that wouldn't be a bad idea - a college football tournament with all D-I teams. That's a lot of college football! :biggrin9gp:
(Please ignore the conversation and argument with myself. The lack of football is affecting my sanity, or what's left of it.)
The article and quotes in it keep sayin they're not going to have a playoff, just the +1 system, but really that is a playoff - a 4 team playoff. That's always what I'd envisioned as the solution to the BCS problem. Really, any playoff with more than 4 teams would just be too much. I like it.
Considering this is the New York Post, I wouldn't put a whole lot of stock in it. The Post is just a tabloid - sometimes they get things right. Let me hear it from a reputable source and then I'll get excited.
By the way, I'm not dissing the +1 idea - I love the idea. I just want to hear it from a real paper, ESPN, CBS, etc.
I think it's dumb to create another "major bowl game". They already have a "BCS Title Game", go ahead and use it.Quote:
Under the new format, the top four teams would be seeded, probably using a voter/computer formula similar to the current BCS system and a sixth major bowl game would be created.
The four top-seeded teams would play in two "semifinal" games, using the existing bowls - Orange, Sugar, Rose, Fiesta and the current BCS title game on a rotating basis - with the two winners meeting in a newly created bowl. Theoretically, it would leave less argument over who's No. 1.
Step 1: Expand Division 1 college football to 128 teams.
Step 2: Have an 8 game schedule (6 conference games + 2 non-conference games)
Step 3: Begin 128 team tournament. The final 2 will have played an additional 7 games for a total of 15 (one more than they do now).
How about that for excitement?!
We could play football in February to get all the games in. Nice.
