I would love to see a playoff, but it will never happen. The bowl games generate millions of dollars in revenue for the schools. A playoff system would take away from the money the schools could earn. So coaches may be for a playoff, but administrators are for making money.

We have a playoff in canada... but i tell you it does work grea.t. the teams that deserve to be there.. are there every year.. but NCAA would not be as exciting.. the controversy and wait to see who is playing where is part of what makes it exciting IMO

Its not like the playoff games could be sponsered, they can still make money off them, and why not have both

They should have a 4 team playoff. Too many games would be a horrible idea. College football is not about a 16 game season, and the best thing about CFB is that every game matters unlike in other sports where if you lose then no big deal. That's why CFB is the best.

I am pro playoff, but if they did have one then USC, Ohio State, LSU, Texas, and Florida would always win the title every year.

It has been discussed and debated a lot on this board and people have put forth a lot of reasons why a playoff wouldnt work but, its to the point now where the BCS is screwing up on a yearly basis it seems and theres always a team that gets screwed over a major bowl or the Championship game. They could find a way to work out a playoff such as eliminating a game or two from the season at the end of the year.

I Don't think it will change anytime soon thought because the bowl games have been around as long as anyone on this boards been alive and theres so much tradition and contreversy when it will come up to change the current format

It isn't fun if you're a student/fan/player on the team of that school that is getting shafted.

The Bowls are great, but if they used the 2 of the big 4 bowls (rose, orange, sugar, fiesta) in a rotating basis as the national semifinals follwed the next week by a BCS NC game then it would be fine and no one would complain that they screwed up CFB. The bowl schedule would be no different, and the BCS NC is already a seperate game anyway that happens a week after all the other bowls. The only change would be that we'd have a more just way of finding the Nat'l Champ. Only 1 extra game for the 2 best teams too. Now what in the heck is wrong with that idea?

Here's what would've happened this past year in that scenario: #1 Ohio State would've played #4 LSU, #2 Florida would've played #3 Michigan. On 1/8/07 the winners of those games would've played in Glendale. (probably the same result -FLa over OSU, but at least UM and LSU would've gotten a shot).

I believe the point of most of life is to improve things that are unsatisfying. So saying you should expect the system to be crap is not persuasive.

well im not saying its crap.. im just saying they should know if you dont decisevly all the way through the season and win the gaems you are supposed to.. that there is a good chance you will be passed over in the rankings... albeit when a 12-0 teams gets shafted that hurts pretty hard... but they(colleges and tv stations) are raking in the money right now and i dont think they would change the way they are making money.. although a couple extra games would be helpfull

I dont know if a play off system would work in the NCAA though.. i know in canada we play someihtng like 10-11 games in the year.. then a championship game.. which is kind of like the qualifier... then a quarter...semi... and then a final.. tehn winner of the two finals play each other for our NC.. if i missed a small detail or made a littel mistake some canadian fan correct me please

The way Phil Steele's magazine suggests a playoff format sounds like a good idea...have every other playoff team in a bowl, but for teams with 1 loss or less in the top 5, have a 1 vs 4 and 2 vs 3 type matchup...and the winners square off for the NC...those games could still be sponsered, and it would generate one more game of revenue for the two top schools. PLus, the NC game could be during the off-wek before the Super Bowl

Its a very smart plan IMO

With a playoff, the regular season loses so much importance in NCAAF...in fact I am going on the record as saying we have a playoff called the regular season.

College football is great just the way it is. Look at college footballs regular season vs. college basketballs and tell me which one is better.

Very true, but there are some big differences. A ton of teams get into the NCAA Basketball playoff. There is almost no suspense unless you follow a small school. Top teams on a 'down' season still make the playoffs with ease. In a football playoff only 4 (and a maximum 8) would make the cut.

Too long of a season. The CFB year can't go past Jan. 10th or so otherwise it's too stretched out. They should just have the top 4 BCS teams square off in bowl matchups (1/4, 2/3) and the winners play Jan. 8th in the NC game. Zero extra games from what they already have, yet a clear cut n.champ with no real controversy. It doesn't make any games meaningless during the reg. season either.

Every year before and after the bowl teams are decided that is all that is talked about on sports stations. The ncaa would lose a ton of publicity, but a playoff would be fair

Your never going to see a playoff format in college football. It is all about money and the colleges know that while a 4 or 8 team playoff might generate millions, it would destroy the value of the other 20 or so Bowl games. There would be so much hype for the playoff games that the other Bowl games would go the way of the NIT in basketball. Without the revenues from the other 20 Bowls, half the NCAA schools playing football would have to give up playing. Money has become GOD in college football and nobody is going to rock that world for a playoff system. NEVER going to see it.

How about giving something to other than just 4 teams in college football?
