CFB is already a world of haves and have-nots, this would just intensify the importance of having a winning record every year. the struggle to get to 7 wins would make things way more interesting for teams like UCLA, Illinois, NCST, Vandy or Cal, who can basically schedule 5 wins, work for 6, and 7 would make their season a success and they'd go to a bowl game that matters, and not have two terrible teams play each other like that UCLA-Illinois game.... on the flip-side it would be more newsworthy to have UF and Ohio St. NOT make a bowl, than play each other like the did... another miserable match-up of 6-6 teams...

The whole bowl game system needs to be changed.

Have a BCS Championship playoff senario and the rest of the winning teams go to bowl games. Makes perfect sense to me.

I'd rather see a 6-6 Tennessee vs 6-6 Maryland than an 8-4 UNLV vs 8-4 La Tech bowl during the holiday season .. more football not less IMO

I don't think I could stomach watching Tenn vs. Maryland, even if it were for the BCS Championship. Unless I put a wager on it.

Does it really hurt anything if there are 30 bowls intead of 20. As long as the TV money justifies the trip, then why not.

Much more money would be involved if the games had more importance. Who cares who wins the Alamo/ Humanitarian bowl, unless you were a fan of one of the teams involved? Make the same game a playoff and you would have a sell-out with millions more watching at home.

It would be impossible to have a playoff with more than 8 teams. You can't ask teams to play more than 3 post season games.....presidents would never allow that. First, all the games would need to be played at the home stadium of the higher seed. Second, the playoff would not impact the TV money for games played in the middle or late December.

A playoff is the worst thing that could happen to to cfb. The BCS is fine. Just get rid of the automatic qualifiers. The top ten teams should go to BCS bowls. And problem solved.

I'm all for the eight team play-off, but it could be more and it will be in a matter of time.

And I have to disagree about the TV money for play-off games in mid to late December.

Big changes are on the way in the next few years, be prepared to be disappointed.

Fine? I would prefer a system that is great.

There will never be a playoff for cfb. Sorry.

Also

How boring is the nfl regular season? That's what would happen to cfb.

They playoff is the regular season. Win your games and your in. Slip up and lose one. That's on you.

Works fine for FCS and lower teams. A simple 4-6 team playoff would be so simple and in the end you'd have a true champion just like all other major sports.

Don't apologize to me, and I don't expect you to admit you are wrong when the day comes, but you are and will be wrong in that regard.

Four team play-off, eight team play-off, then a sixteen team play-off. All in the next decade.

Actually thinking about a top four seed playoff isn't that bad. But I still rather just have the BCS and the top ten teams gets gets BCS bowls. So simple

You are so wrong it is laughable. Just look at clemson that made a BCS bowl and we didn't. There are to many things to even mention about how wrong the BCS system really is. Voting should never come into play determining a national championship. Play the games on the field.

Conferences already have ties into bowls. Make all conferences play a championship game. Play that game under the guise of an already popular bowl name the first week of December (sec = peach bowl, pac ten = ftd rose, ohio state = emerald nut bowl, etc...) After the ncaa and tv has drained the sponsorship dollars and maintained the storied history of these bowls, invite the 8 conference champs (sec, big10, pac10, big12, acc, wac, mac, east) to play regionally in the 2nd week of december (4 games), 2 games January 1, championship the 2nd week of January (as it already stands).
