    Plus-1

    This year is the exact situation where a plus one would fix everything. It isn't even difficult in the slightest to do and doesn't change anything except one game. Just have the national championship between the winner of #1-#4 and #2-#3. Don't even need a huge overhauled playoff or anything. Simple and easy. Plus more money. Why not?

    Anything short of a 16 team playoff would not fix the problem. Every conference champion and 5 at-larges.. It would make sooooo much money too. Heck, D3 schools play a 32 team playoff, travel across the country, etc.


    College football could be so much better.

    Disagree. Teams outside of the top 4 can't claim they're championship worthy.

    Its a playoff. Whatever happens, happens. Its what makes most sports great. You would have to bring it every round or risk going home..

    Still need a rule barring teams that don't win a conference from the plus-1. (Or bar them if the champ from their conference doesn't also make it).

    The idea of letting in Stanford over Oregon wouldn't sit well with me

    I know. I'm just saying that a plus one does fix the problem here because you let the teams that are championship worthy play each other.

    I support that kind of playoff (I could possibly see ranking the auto-bid conferences and allowing more at-large -- only because I think that would be more likely to find approval).

    Either a viable playoff, or I'm OK with a plus-1. Either one is preferable.

    I say 8 team playoff. I think more than just the top 4 are good enough to win it but numbers 10-16 just aren't. Lots of TV's willing to watch and lots more money to be made. And it is clearly a more fair shot for all teams with a case at playing in the NC game.

    The problem with that is you absolutely HAVE to have the champion of every conference involved........ And the SEC will want at least 4 so....

    To fix this problem put a rule in that you have to win your conference to play in the BCS title game.

    No I'm kidding.

    Even if there would be 6 one loss teams I can't think of a year when I thought the number 5 team in the country should have been the champion. Its not about giving everybody a shot. Its about getting the 2 best teams in the championship game.
