  • Perfect Year For Playoff?

    anyone else think this would have been the perfect year for a playoff? there is no clear #1 or #2 team

    usc showed they could make a case against illinois
    same with uga and wvu

    before the bowls started ou had a case too

    think if it was 8 teams---6 bcs conference champs, and 2 wildcards

    wvu, osu, usc, lsu, vt, ou are the champs
    uga, and either mizzou/hawaii as the wildcards

    you could have some great games

    we can only hope for a play off in the future. its really frustrating to see how much of a joke college football is becoming. this is one of the few years where i am actually in favor of having a split championship title.

      EVERY year is a perfect year for the playoffs.

      I ALWAYS hated the BCS.

      Any system that has the title game decided by voting is IDIOTIC.

        I think it should be the top 16 teams so you could have all conference winners and then some wild cards.

        So...

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

        That'd be pretty nice..

        Looking at those matchups....

        OSU over UT, LSU over Clemson, VA Tech over BC, Oklahoma over Illinois, Georgia over Florida, Missouri over ASU, USC over Hawaii, WVU over Kansas

        (Highest remaining vs. lowest remaining)

        OSU over WVU, USC over LSU, Missouri over VA Tech, Georgia over Oklahoma

        USC over OSU, Georgia over Missouri

        USC over Georgia

        Just a guess....

          Yeah, I like that format, but one of the biggest reasons NCAAF doesn't want the playoffs is because they don't want to add games.

          I think a more realistic format is having top 8 teams make it and start at the quarterfinals.

            Doesn't make sense that "they don't want to add games" because they were able to do that for 1-AA, II, and III. Not saying you're wrong, but it's dumb logic by the NCAA.

            I guess we do the top 8 ranked teams then, or six conference winners and 2 WC? Because if you're not the best team in your conference, how can you make a case for the best team in the country?

              Just to say one thing, if there was a playoff, then WVU wouldn't be punished that much for losing to Pitt.

                Same here. I think every year this is an argument as to who should be in the national championship game and who shouldn't be.

                I would love a 16 team playoff but I think that is a tad bit unrealistic as it would make the season far longer than it already is. You have to make room for finals, Christmas break, travel time, game planning, and everything that goes into a playoff.

                I think an 8, 10, 0r 12 team playoff would be ideal. In a 10 or 12 team playoff the #1 and #2 ranked teams get bye weeks just like in the NFL.

                      well lets think about this. the NCAA's 3 biggest reasons for saying no to playoffs is because it would add games, would make the regular season less important, and weaken the reasoning behind division championships.

                      so in my opinion, to lessen the addition of the games, cut out the cream-puff weeks early in the season where teams like OSU go about whomping the youngstown states of the world. theres a week. then, cut out division championships for all the divisions. its not fair that team can run their division during the regular season only to lose to a team whos like 6-6 in the division championship game. also, use up all these extra weeks in between the end of the regular season and the important games.

                      and to keep the regular season and division standing important, make it an 8 team playoff with the 6 "big" division winners getting automatic bids plus 2 more at large teams.

                      and there we'd have it settled IMO

                        You forgot they are students and they have finals. They use that lame excuse as well.

                          Wanna know why USC doesn't have a case? They lost to a 41 point underdog. At home. Just because they beat an Illinois team that probably shouldn't have been in the BCS to begin with doesn't mean they deserve a share of the title.

                          I'm sick of hearing about how much they deserve a split title. Next time they need to beat Stanford.

                          That being said..I seriously want a playoff.

                            I know everyone disagrees with me, but I don't want a playoff system. I like the BCS.

                              I agree with that as well, but there would be a lot of coaches that just decide to rest their starters at the last game of the season in preparation for the playoffs.
