That would have the potential to add 6 games, heck this makes the regular season pointless and the conference championship game pointless.

You're not even remotely right.

Make the thing MEAN something...9 wins and you're in the playoffs.
Win your Conference and get first round bye.

It's very simple.

He's saying that while looking at this 64 team playoff.
6-6 UNC made this tournament, and there are no BYEs in the this tournament.

Default Re: USA Today put together a 64 team football playoff bracket

Yeah I would absolutely hate it if they did this and copied college basketball with the 64 team format. Granted I know it's far fetched they would ever try a 64 team tourney in football because of the number of games it would add. I already don't watch college basketball until February/March because what is the point? Average teams make the field so it's not much of an accomplishment (for most teams, at USC making the basketball tourney would be a big deal sadly). We could win 7 games and make a 64 team field. It would make winning the conference meaningless and devalue the regular season. As much as everyone hates the BCS and the BCS rules, the system worked as far as matching up the best two teams in the country against each other to play for the championship. After that it doesnt really matter anyway. It sucks they have the 2 team per conferenc rule, but at the end of the day that does not impact the national championship.

I don't think they are putting it out there as a justifiable option. I think we could all agree the playoff would never get this big. It's just to show what it would look like in a fantasy land where football playoffs worked like March Madness.

You know by USC they mean Southern Cal, right? We're a 2 seed on this. (unless you're being sarcastic. In which case carry on)

Thanks for clarifying. SC is 2nd seeded in the East regional. USC is 6th seeded in the South regional.

Now I feel dizzy...!

Default Re: USA Today put together a 64 team football playoff bracket

Seeding us #2 in the same bracket as FSU means they are ranking us #8.

Make the regular season 9 games.....the top 2 teams would end up playing 15 games.....have the losers play against each other after each round, so every team would play at least 3 games after the regular season.

Half of all the money created in this tournament would be split equally between the major conferences. The other half would be awarded based on how far each team got in the main bracket and the 3 losers brackets.

The first 3 rounds would be home games of the higher seeded teams. If there was an upset, the lower seeded team would take over the higher team's seed and therefore allow them to play a home game.

We're all tired of these damn Florida/warm weather bowls.
