    The Bowl System Does Not...

    have to scrapped in order to create a championship tournament for Div. 1A (BC sub-division). It can be made thus:
    Introducing the Bowl Championship Tournament
    https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&p...5YjU3&hl=en_US
    Basically, take the five current BCS bowl games, plus the ten highest pay-out bowl games, and create a 16 team tourney.

    Problem is that sponsorship money will start flowing out of and away from the other bowls. all that people (thus marketing dollars) will care about are the playoff bowls.

    No way it would work. Teams are not going to be able to bring 30K+ fans with them to 4 playoff games.

    You wouldn't go to Jack Trice for a playoff game?

    Under the OP's proposal, the playoff sites would be existing bowl games (i.e. Cotton, Cap 1, Fiesta, etc.). Attendance would probably not be great for those games.

    Also, if the other bowl games still continue, you're removing roughly 1/2 of the bowl options for the other teams not in the playoffs. So what kind of record would you need to go bowling in one of those games, 8-4 minimum?

    My bad...I agree then. That is why the playoff system needs to happen at home stadiums like in the NFL.

    Re: The Bowl System Does Not...

    16 team playoff would take away from the regular season, which is what makes college football unique. The problem is the idiots in the system, not the idea of the system.

    Personally, I would like to see a +1. Just keep all the current bowls, designate 2 BCS bowls for the top 4 teams. One has #1 vs #4, the other #2 vs #3. Then the following week, the winners of those 2 play for the NC.

    This really makes the most sense to me. It doesn't even change anything as far as bowl sites/timing. The 2 "playoff" BCS games could be Jan 2 with the NCG approximately 1 week later.

    Re: The Bowl System Does Not...

    If you read any of Dan Wetzel's work about the BCS, then you'd realize the whole system is rigged for maximum TV ratings, rather than a team's actual won-loss record and strength of schedule. Actually the BCS rewards weak scheduling, just look at Va Tech and any Big Ten teams in the BCS games who leapfrogged K-State.

    The system I created is far more fair, plus a football championship tournament would bring in probably billions of dollars to the networks and the bowl games. Anyway, the reward bowls would primarily be watched by those following the individual teams participating, and not many beyond those as currently happening. So, the argument that a tournament would take away from these bowl games doesn't hold much water IMO.

    I like my system far more than the current one in place.

    If one's concern for the "regular season" limits your appeal to this setup, then remove the first round and have an eight team tourney with all slots chosen by a selection committee (similar to NCAA Mens BB Tourney) -- no automatic qualifiers. I chose 16 teams because originally I wanted all conference champions to automatically qualify for the tourney with five at-large bids.

    Re: The Bowl System Does Not...

    I'm seeing multiple threads about a NCAA Div. 1A playoff. Can all of them be combined into one ***Official NCAA Div. 1A Playoff Thread***?

    Re: The Bowl System Does Not...

    I don't think any system will happen where a school can play in multiple bowl games.

    All you need is a plus 1. BCS games rotate the two playoff games and the championship is wherever they want to put it. Then the season truly can be considered a defacto playoff and there is no chance that a team outside the top 5 could claim they should be champs.

    I think people underestimate how much a 16 team playoff would devalue the college football regular season.
