  • NCAA Playoffs

    If the NCAA had play offs who would you put in it this year? Would you use the BCS selection system (no more than 2 teams per conference, top 12 Non-BCS conference teams gets automatic bid, etc) or would you go strictly with a top 4, 8 , 16?

    here would be mine

    using BCS current rules, and keeping the bowl games normal

    Predicted Winners in Bold

    (Rose) #2 OSU vs #8 ASU
    (Fiesta) #4 OU vs #5 Georgia
    (Sugar) #2 LSU vs #7 USC
    (Orange) #3 VT vs #6 Hawaii

    #1 OSU vs #5 UGA
    #2 LSU vs #3 VT

    #1 LSU vs #5 UGA

    may end up with the same champion but at least we would know for sure

      I guess i should look at the bcs rankings, instead of just pulling them out my ass

      all right it definitely needs some tweaks, and maybe the current bowl system would have to go

        hahaha well yea if you are going off BCS it would be completely different (no Hawaii)...but I wasn't sure if you were doing that or making your own

        #1 OSU vs. #8 Kansas
        #4 Oklahoma vs. #5 Georgia
        #3 VT vs. #6 Mizzou
        #2 LSU vs. #7 USC

        #1 OSU vs. #5 Georgia
        #6 Mizzou vs. #2 LSU

        #5 Georgia vs. #2 LSU

        I just really like Georgia right now :D

          or just the top 8 teams no other qualifications

          1 OSU vs 8 KU
          4 OU vs 5 UGA
          2 LSU vs 7 USC
          3 VT vs 6 Mizz

          but then you end up with 3 big 12 teams

            yea, well I made one with just the top 8...if we follow the 2 teams rule, then I'd swap WV in

            #1 OSU vs. #9 WV
            #4 Oklahoma vs. #5 Georgia
            #3 VT vs. #6 Mizzou
            #2 LSU vs. #7 USC

            #5 Georgia vs. #9 WV
            #2 LSU vs. #6 Mizzou

            #5 Georgia vs. #2 LSU

              #1 Ohio State (11-1)
              #2 LSU (11-2)
              #3 Virginia Tech (11-2)
              #4 USC (10-2)
              #5 Oklahoma (11-2)
              #6 Hawaii (12-0)
              #7 Georgia (10-2)
              #8 Kansas (11-1)
              #9 Missouri (11-2)
              #10 Arizona State (10-2)
              #11 West Virginia (10-2)
              #12 Florida (9-3)
              #13 Illinois (9-3)
              #14 Boston College (10-3)
              #15 Clemson (9-3)
              #16 Tennessee (9-4)



              her we go:

              (plays winner of 8 v 9)
              #1 Ohio State (11-1)
              vs.
              #16 Tennessee (9-4)

              Ohio State wins it by a TD it's a close game but Ohio State pulls it out 20-14

              (plays winner of 1 v 16)
              #8 Kansas (11-1)
              vs.
              #9 Missouri (11-2)

              Mizzu will beat Kansas but the Jayhawks will be looking for revenge i can see this game going close but Chase Daniel pulls it out in the end Mizzu wins 28-24

              (plays winner of 5 v 12)
              #4 USC (10-2)
              vs.
              #13 Illinois (9-3)

              like the Rose bowl will see on New Years Day, USC is the hottest team in the country right now and the Illinois was a BCS surprise, the USC defense is to much for Juice, SC wins 38-13

              (plays winner of 4 v 13)
              #5 Oklahoma (11-2)
              vs.
              #12 Florida (9-3)

              Oklahoma is the Big 12 Champs but after a big win they do lose to avarage teams (ie. Colorado & Texas Tech) Heisman winner Tim Tebow leads the Gators to a 37-27 victory

              (plays winner of 7 v 10)
              #2 LSU (11-2)
              vs.
              #15 Clemson (9-3)

              LSU is too good to be stopped by Clemson, LSU wins 31-10

              (plays winner of 2 v 15)
              #7 Georgia (10-2)
              vs.
              #10 Arizona State (10-2)

              Georgia Wins this game because they are the better and hotter team, ASU keeps it close but the Bulldogs win 28-20

              (winner plays 6 v 11)
              #3 Virginia Tech (11-2)
              vs.
              #14 Boston College (10-3)

              Boston College won the 1st meeting and the Hookies won the 2nd meeting, Matt Ryan goes back to his mid-season form and beats the Hookies 27-26 in a close game

              (winner plays 3 v 14)
              #6 Hawaii (12-0)
              vs.
              #11 West Virginia (10-2)

              this game will be a shoot out, Hawaii will stay in it the whole game but to much Slaton and White for Hawaii, WVU wins 45-41

              **2nd Round**

              (winner plays 4 v 12)
              #1 Ohio State (11-1)

              #9 Missouri (11-2)

              (winner plays 1 v 9)
              #4 USC (10-2)
              vs.
              #12 Florida (9-3)

              (winner plays 11 v 14)
              #2 LSU (11-2)
              vs.
              #7 Georgia (10-2)

              (winner plays 2 v 7)
              #11 West Virginia (10-2)

                I just don't see a NCAA Playoff happening without rearranging of conferences. In order to have a Playoff, I think the talent should evenly distributed, also taking locations/travel into consideration. Maybe combine conferences into a number of super conferences. For Example:

                      IMO, putting BYU into the Big XII would be disastrous for them. Everything else seems good. I would probable add and detract some schools out of the SEC to get rid of the "power conference".

                        I have two schools of thought on this. Both involve an 8 team playoff. One would involve the champion of each of the 6 major conferences still getting an automatic bid, with the 2 other teams being the highest ranked teams that aren't conference champions. The BCS formula could still be used. The bowl system would not be in place ie. Big 10/Pac 10=Rose Bowl, but the major bowls would still host the playoff games, with the semifinals and final being played on a rotating basis throughout those bowls. The teams would also be seeded based on rankings, with the conference champions being ranked 1-6 based on BCS ranking, and the 2 "at large teams" getting the 7-8 spots. Seedings would also be adjusted each round each round. So that would look like(winners in bold):

                        #1 OSU vs #8 Missouri
                        #2 LSU vs #7 Georgia
                        #3 Virginia Tech vs #6 West Virginia
                        #4 Oklahoma vs #5 USC

                        #1 OSU vs #7 Georgia
                        #3 Virginia Tech vs #4 Oklahoma

                        #1 OSU vs #4 Oklahoma

                        The winners were slightly random, and more used to illustrate the way the seeding would change than anything. I think you'd get some good matchups every year, and the #1 and #2 teams would at least get some advantage for ending up ranked #1 and #2 during the regular season by playing an(in theory) easier schedule.

                        My other thought was to just go with the top 8 teams in the BCS rankings, again with reseeding after each round. The Bowls would remain the same as above, with each major bowl hosting a first round game, and rotatind every year after that. Basically this year the teams would stay mostly the same, with West Virginia being left out, and Kansas coming in. So you'd have:

                        #1 OSU vs #8 Kansas
                        #2 LSU vs #7 USC
                        #3 Virginia Tech vs #6 Missouri
                        #4 Oklahoma vs #5 Georgia

                        #1 OSU vs #5 Georgia
                        #3 Virginia Tech vs #7 USC

                        #3 Virginia Tech vs #5 Georgia

                        Again, the winners were generally random to show how the seeding would change, not who I think would necessarily win each game. I think, again, you'd get some good matchups.

                          First things first, we need a +1 game. That will at least be an easy, quick compromise.

                            lol I don't think getting rid of Kentucky and South Carolina and replacing them with Miami(5 NCs) and FSU(2 NCs) would get rid of a power conference if anything you just added two of the most winningest programs to an already elite conference

                              Everyone here is focusing way too much on football when thinking about putting these conferences together. Remember that a conference like the SEC wouldn't want to lose Kentucky because of their basketball history. Seriously, a conference realignment will not and should not happen.
