No-Missouri won the Cotton Bowl, which is not a BCS game. It will be a playoff game but its not a BCS game. They are different.

The playoffs will not be any better until they are expanded to at least eight teams.

Washington in 2000 beat both the winner of the Fiesta and Sugar bowls (Oregon St and Miami).

Tennessee in 2001 beat both the winner of the Sugar and Orange bowls (LSU and Florida).

LSU in 2011 beat both the winner of the Orange and Rose bowls and the National Champion (Alabama, West Virginia, and Oregon).

Auburn in 2006 beat the winner of the National Championship and the Sugar Bowl (Florida and LSU).

Right now the National Championship is down to only 2 teams. Then 4 other pointless games surround it. Now it's 4 teams, 3 games. It's an improvement.

There are rarely 4 teams who really deserve to be in the discussion of the national championship and there are never 8 teams who do.

Gamecocks beat the Belk, Liberty, Cotton, Fiesta and Orange Bowl champions this season. Have a chance at another if Vandy wins.

Have to disagree, I can name eight teams right now that deserve a shot in a playoff.

UCF even deserved a shot. Mizzou looks awesome with Mauk under center.

Gamecocks and The Sooners are two of the hottest teams in the country, they both would deserve a shot in the playoffs if they were implemented this season.

FSU, Auburn, Bama and MSU.

In the current (soon to be obsolete) BCS System we have now you MIGHT
be right.

Why would you discuss or consider more than two teams in this system
for the final championship game, knowing that no more than two are going
to play for it ?

Do you think if the NCAA Basketball Tournament was set up the same
way as the BCS System that there would be 64 teams in the discussion
for the National Championship game ? ... Or even 32 ? .... OR 16 ?
Do you think if the CWS Championship game was set up the way the
BCS system is now, and the participants in the title game were chosen
by Computer rankings and a very bias, and manipulative human element
like the BCS Football championship is now...AND make the eight teams
in Omaha like the BCS bowls (only there for show and to be fair to the
lower tier conferences, without them having a shot at the title), that
there would be more than two teams in a discussion for a CWS title ?

There are no more than two (rarely 4) .. and definitely not 8 teams in
in a discussion for the Football National Title because the system that
was in place prior to the end of this season, did not allow for more than
two teams at the end of the regular season to even have a shot at the
title.

Default Re: beat 2 BCS winners

There is a reason basketball is referred to as a tournament and that's because in the end all you have is a tournament champion. They may have decided a true champion back when it was conference winners only playing but now it only serves to make extra money for the NCAA and CBS. As soon as they start putting in at large teams you lost a big part of the "championship" aspect.

If football realigned to regional conferences and then set up a playoff with 8 winners that would be fine. As long as you have a committee deciding things you're accomplishing nothing. Have you even seen the collection of people who will now be deciding who's going to play in this 4 team tournament?

I agree completely. But people will want their team included anyway by expanding the field, which is what the BCS currently does. The BCS wanted to be fair and let everyone participate which is what I fear this next endeavor will demand.

I've seen Gamecock fans state how hot we were down the stretch, but in a 4 team playoff we would be left out. A 2 loss team never deserves a shot at a NC I don't care how hot they are down the stretch.
