    playoff or no playoff?

    With BSU knocking off OU the ? pops up again, should there be a play off?


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Re: playoff or no playoff?

    A Playoff would create so much excitement! And the playoff games could be called the Rose Bowl, Orange Bowl, and so on and so on. The cities could rotate the title game similiar to what they do now.... Thats what i want!

    Re: playoff or no playoff?

    College football definitely needs a playoff. However, it needs to be a 4 team playoff. Anything more than that would be foolish.

    Re: playoff or no playoff?

    I think you could get away with an eight team playoff. that would be what? 3 additional weeks of games? Run the first two weeks right after the conference championships, and the final game on New Years day. Or, the first round after conference championships and the other two starting on NYD.

    Re: playoff or no playoff?

    I like the playoff idea if they can incorporate bowl games into it. Have the the final rounds at the Rose, Orange, Fiesta, Sugar Bowls. Earlier rounds at the Holiday, Cotton, Alamo, Chick Fil-A etc.

    this is hard on travel i know...but bowl games carry too much history to completely do away with them.

    Re: playoff or no playoff?

    travel is the biggest problem with an 8-team playoff. It's a lot to expect from a fanbase to travel to different places around the country for 3 different games.

    You wouldn't have to get rid of the bowls, other teams could still go to bowl games, just the top 4 BCS teams would be in the playoffs.

    Re: playoff or no playoff?

    I think an 8 team would be just fine. To compensate for the extra playoff game, the Conf. Championships could be eliminated all together...

    Re: playoff or no playoff?

    but to anyone that argues that it would take the players out of class for too long, I offer up March Madness. If the NCAA really cared about keeping their players in class, this tournament would have gone by the wayside long ago.

    Re: playoff or no playoff?

    No playoff. Yes, it would be exciting, BUT the money factor is my biggest arguement. The best scenario I heard would end up killing all the "small/untraditionally powerful" football programs when you throw in the concept of money. What they suggestedis have all the bowls for the "other" teams and have the BCS games be for the Elite Eight, with money being paid out for each game. This would severely hurt a program such as ISU (no offense).

    It was sweet watching Boise beat a powerhouse, tho. We ran a hook N ladder like that in hs, but didnt work nearly as well. The game winning run would have to be the play of the year; how awesome was that?!

    i think eliminating conference championships is a horrible idea. ive always thought EVERY conference needs that game (ahem Big 11). feel free to argue your point with me...id be happy to try and understand why championship games are not worthy

    i agree with the missing school part. besides that and money, what arguments do anti-playoff people have?


    P.S. HAPPY 100TH POST TO ME!

    Re: playoff or no playoff?

    While i agree that in the system we have now every conf. should have a championship game. If we went to a playoff, that would be one less game on the schedule, that was my only reasoning... Just to prevent teams from playing 16 games a year.

    I think the playoff systems we discussed in the thread linked below could have been fun this year...
