    Finalist


    *** NOTES ***

    * Seeding is based on Final Regular Season BCS Rankings (12/7/08).

    * NFL Playoff games are played on Saturday 1/3 and Saturday 1/10, requiring Friday games for BCS.

    * First round games are located near the better seed to help with travel/attendance.

    ---

    It's my opinion that a system like this would NOT deem the regular season meaningless. In fact, I think it would have quite the OPPOSITE effect. Instead of a small number of teams fighting for 2 spots, you would now have a larger pool of teams fighting for 8 spots, thus, making even MORE games relevant at the end of the season (much like the Wildcard in MLB).

    One problem......No matter what type of season they have, Ohio State always gets in to a BCS bowl, so it would have to be the Top 7 BCS ranked teams + Ohio State......Man I hate the Buckeyes

    Why didn't you put eiu in your playoffs? Kinda makes this whole "playoff" silly without the hawks.

    Re: BCS 8-Team Playoff Schedule

    I like it. I have the same idea too. I my version the current BCS is the round of 8 and we just play 3 more games. leading up to the superbowl (i hope i dont get sued for using that term). What a month january could be. CFB playoffs, Conference basketball season underway, and NFL playoffs.

    Re: BCS 8-Team Playoff Schedule

    At this point I would be happy with a 4 team playoff. The BCS is a joke.

    Re: BCS 8-Team Playoff Schedule

    The funny thing is the first round of this 8 team playoff has better games than most of the bowl matchups that are "final."
