Default BCS or Playoff?

Year after year, it's probably the most debated topic in college football next to who the best confrence is. So, do YOU want to see a playoff or do you want to keep the BCS in place?

Personally, I would like to see the NCAA keep the BCS. Why? Well for one, I don't want to see the NCAA turn into the NFL with this playoff system. What if a 7-6 team wins the National Title? Another reason is that I like the idea in college football that every game counts. If you lose one, your shot at the National Title reduces greatly. In the NFL, you can lose 2-6 games, and still win your division, depending on the confrence you're in, and also still make the playoffs. This is all just my opinion. What's yours?

I prefer the BCS as well. I like the fact that NCAA basketball and football provide different experiences, and that every reg. season game counts in ncaaf. Plus, if there was a playoff only 8 teams would be in it, maybe 16.

I can see liking the BCS if you're Ohio St. or Michigan in the Big 10. Or USC in the Pac 10. You really really like it if you're Notre Dame.

But if you're team is in the Big 12, ACC or THE SEC. Then I can't see how you wouldn't want a playoff. Remeber Florida almost didn't get in this year. Auburn 05' Remeber them? USC/LSU split title remeber that?

There are probably more examples I'm forgetting but the point is the BCS sucks big time. You can still have the bowl games just make them playoff games. Sure some of the other bowls won't mean as much but they already don't mean much. There are way way too many bowl games.

i would also like to see them get rid of the one or two months after the regular season ends until the BCS and i think a playoff could solve that.

I would like to see the bowls stay, but also playoffs for BCS games. An 8team field to become national champs, the first round games will be the rose,fiesta,orange,and sugar bowls. Winner of the Rose plays winner of fiesta and winner of Orange plays winner of Sugar.
Example

Rose:
1 USC
2 Boise State

Fiesta:
1 Ohio State
2 Oklahoma

Sugar:
1 LSU
2 V Tech

Orange:
1 Florida
2 Michigan

Then...
Rose-Fiesta
1 tOSU
2 Boise State

Sugar-Orange
1 Florida
2 V Tech

Then...
1 V Tech
2 Boise state

Games will start on Dec 31
That way the tradition of the Rose and other bowls is preserved but combine and draft will get bumped

Give me a 6 team playoff with the top 2 teams getting a bye week and I'd be the happiest man on the planet.

You don't even have to get rid of the BCS, just take the top 6 in the poll.

Its mostly because the bowl system brings in a ton of money. College presidents aren't willing to do away with a system that makes them so much money, so they stick with something that has obvious flaws.

A playoff wouldn't be perfect, I guess, but it would be a whole lot closer to it than the BCS has been.

I think that you could work out a playoff system and still keep the bowls for everyone that doesn't make it to the tournament.

The SEC could be really getting behind it. That may be all it would take.

I would like to see a playoff system. There were a lot of teams in the SEC last year who just beat up on eachother but had worse records than teams from other conferences so they didn't get to really show themselves. Teams like Arkansas, LSU, and Auburn could really have done something if there was a playoff system last season. We all saw what Florida did, and they showed why they were the best team in the country. A playoff system would be much more exciting and it would take a lot more than computers and one game to show who the best team in the nation truly is.

What doesn't make sense to me is, almost everything else -- including lower level NCAA football -- has a tournament to determine its champion. Why shouldn't Div. I-A (Bowl Division, whatever you want to call it).

And I said "almost" b/c NFL Europe only has a title game, but the only math it's based on is 6 (total teams) - 2 (best records). Or I guess it would be more accurate to say 6 (total teams) - 4 (worst records). You know what I mean.

Playoffs of the BCS teams has some promise, but any playoffs sill wont include all the teams that people believe should be in. Niether is a perfect systems, BCS is unique. Only real downside is that is not perfect in dertermining the NC, but its better then the previous system.

Playoff, and the system isn't hard to come up with either. Something like this:

8 teams make it. Every major conference member gets a seed, as well as the team deemed to be the best midmjaor, and one wildcard spot, for the 2nd best team in the ncaa. They would still have the polls and ranking system, that would determine who gets the mid-major and wildcard spots. Then, it would be something like this.

"Rose Bowl:" Pac-10 Champ vs. Big 10 Champ
"Orange Bowl:" ACC champ vs. Big East
"Fiesta Bowl:" Big 12 vs. Mid-major
"Sugar Bowl:" SEC vs. Wildcard

So this year it would be: OSU vs. USC, Wake Forest vs. Louisville, Oklahoma vs. Boise State, and Florida vs. Michigan

Or, if you don't care about the bowl game affiliations, you just have the rankings system determine a 1-8 seeding. Then of course, whichever seeding system you use, winners face each other in the semis, and winners of that face off in the finals.


As for the arguement about not having to win almost all your games, you still have to. To win a division in college football is very hard. Not sure off the top of my head, but I think every team but Oklahoma up there lost 1 game or less.

I say playoff. Look at Utah and Boise St. Two BCS no conference teams who came in and won the fiesta bowl. It just goes to show you that teams like that can be good as well. So, there needs to be a playoff.

Though the NFL season is longer, losses mean less. I think that a playoff is best, because in the regular season the undefeated teams might not play the best competition, so they should have to go through the best teams for the championship.
