    Re: +1 football playoff championship by 2011?

    What about the debate between who should be 4 or 5. Still I think it would be a step in the right direction. A Final Four of Football. FFF

    More college football. That certainly doesn't suck.

    I still think it's a bit of a band aid yet it would be progress.

    Finally some progress out of this BCS mess....Put the top 8 in a tourney and let the rest of the riff raff fight for the bowl games.

    No...top 10 you fool.

    HA! I want the top 12.

    12? Just 12? It should be top 16!

    Heck...put 'em all in a tournament.

    Actually, that wouldn't be a bad idea - a college football tournament with all D-I teams. That's a lot of college football!

    Re: +1 football playoff championship by 2011?

    The article and quotes in it keep sayin they're not going to have a playoff, just the +1 system, but really that is a playoff - a 4 team playoff. That's always what I'd envisioned as the solution to the BCS problem. Really, any playoff with more than 4 teams would just be too much. I like it.

    The problem is even with a 4 team playoff, teams like Utah and Boise would not have gotten in in the past few years. Anyone that goes through a Div 1A schedule and goes undefeated should be granted a chance at the "big boys."

    Re: +1 football playoff championship by 2011?

    Considering this is the New York Post, I wouldn't put a whole lot of stock in it. The Post is just a tabloid - sometimes they get things right. Let me hear it from a reputable source and then I'll get excited.

    By the way, I'm not dissing the +1 idea - I love the idea. I just want to hear it from a real paper, ESPN, CBS, etc.

    Re: +1 football playoff championship by 2011?

    Under the new format, the top four teams would be seeded, probably using a voter/computer formula similar to the current BCS system and a sixth major bowl game would be created.
    The four top-seeded teams would play in two "semifinal" games, using the existing bowls - Orange, Sugar, Rose, Fiesta and the current BCS title game on a rotating basis - with the two winners meeting in a newly created bowl. Theoretically, it would leave less argument over who's No. 1.
    I think it's dumb to create another "major bowl game". They already have a "BCS Title Game", go ahead and use it.

    It's actually not that bad of an idea.

    Step 1: Expand Division 1 college football to 128 teams.

    Step 2: Have an 8 game schedule (6 conference games + 2 non-conference games)

    Step 3: Begin 128 team tournament. The final 2 will have played an additional 7 games for a total of 15 (one more than they do now).

    How about that for excitement?!
