    Its an improvement. Would like to see a more expansive playoff system similar to NFL or most state high school playoff systems.

    It's about freaking time! It's not a perfect system, but it's a major step ahead of where they were with the BCS.

    Yeah well you can't hate on the SEC for putting up great teams that compete during the season for a championship week in and week out.. One loss and you may not make it to the conference championship.

    Well, I hate to start an argument here, however.....a healthy portion of the power in college football IS in the SEC....A school has to literally have a perfect season in order to get to the SEC Championship game and one loss against an SEC team means you're done for the year.

    Before I responded here, I only glanced at the story. Is the Big East involved in the playoff system here or not?

    Step in the right direction, but not sure how much of a difference it's really going to make.

    Woohoo My Coogs still wouldn't have made it last year if they had finished unbeaten.

    Is it odd that I actually liked the BCS? Being a die hard Gator fan and an obvious S.E.C. supporter...I feel it has treated us pretty good the past six years icon_smile.gif

    I guess any change is decent, but this doesn't improve a whole lot. Instead of people arguing who should be in the top 2, now everyone will be arguing who deserves to be in the top 4. Actually, choosing amongst the top 10 ranked teams for spots 3 and 4 in the playoff may be even harder than some years where there was a definite top 2 to play for a national title.

    the Big East and most likely the ACC end up getting shut out here for one loss teams from other conferences. In fact I could see even the Big 12 getting shut out for a 1 SEC school.

    who makes up the committee and what is their criteria let alone qualifications. All this will do is strengthen the good old boy network between the dozen or so traditional powers and yes while the SEC is the strongest conference I forsee a major push for them to have two schools in this every year. Who is to say that one loss SEC school is better than a one loss Big 12 school?

    One loss teams can always improve their chances with the caliber of their non-conference opponents. This new system is a vast improvement to the the old "BS" system. I still think that the NCCA needs to force the top teams to play one another more often in non-conference play. Start off the season with a Florida vs Ohio St, USC vs Texas, Boston College vs Florida St and Alabama vs Boise St. Make the non-com games tough. I want Michigan and Florida and other top teams to earn it. Yes the play in the SEC is tough, but let us see more SEC against the Pac and Big Ten vs SEC. More competition equals higher TV ratings and thus more revenue share. This would be good for the schools and the fans.

    Now you might have a championship game with a Michigan who has beaten a USC and won the Big Ten vs a Alabama who has beaten Texas and won the SEC. Both undefeated and who have both played high caliber competition all season long.

    No... Four teams is enough. I love bowl games.
