    BCS Playoff Idea with Week 3 Rankings

    A few weeks ago I put a scenerio in a thread on CycloneFanatic.com where the Top 12 in a preseason poll were put in a playoff. Below, I put this week's Top 16 (from the AP Top 25 Poll) into the same bracket to see where things would be if a playoff was played based upon this week's Top 16 teams. In the three brackets I have made so far, I have just went from teams 1-12/16 in the polls, and have not based anything on probable Conference Championships yet, but may later. I truly believe a playoff is necessary in College Football.

    So how is basing a playoff on teams having played practically nobody better than two highest ranked teams playing at the end of the year after playing their entire schedule, conference and all?

    Just to get a few different teams to see how a playoff could/might look. Just to imagine if the polls were this way at the end of the year.

    That would be freaking sweet. For bowl games, I probably watch between 1 and 3 per year. For a playoff, I'd try to watch every single one.

    I had fun making this since I was able to imagine games like Ole Miss vs. Texas in New Orleans, or a USC/Florida 'Rose Bowl.' I just don't get why the BCS is being so stubborn. This could make just as much money... if not more!!

    Make a business case for why the BCS conferences would make more money in a playoff system, and I can guarantee you 1000000% that they would do it.

    The business case simply does not exist.

    The games don't only feature the most elite teams in football, but they feature the most elite teams who are on a mission to move up, and win a National Championship. Instead of a bowl being the end of the road, they are a big step in the ultimate journey. The money maker is that there will be 16 fanbases with dreams and aspirations of winning a National Championship on Thanksgiving weekend, not just 2. Everyone will be watching every minute of it to see who will face who, and predict which teams will move on to play this team, etc. It'll be like March Madness but bigger.
