    Re: Your opinion on the BCS...

    i really believe the whole season is a playoff. the BCS created a way to match #1 against #2, and i think they've done a pretty good job at that.

    i also like how they try to create old big ten-pac ten rose bowls etc. Creates more of an old time traditional feel.

    Having a playoff would not be any more exciting. College football is already the greatest sport in this country, so why change it? imo

    Re: Your opinion on the BCS...

    A vote for a playoff is probably a vote for superconferences.

    Old way please.

    Re: Your opinion on the BCS...

    Utah is undefeated, and crushes Alabama in a bowl game, is not given the chance to be a national champion. Instead, they give that to a team w/ a loss.

    ...Playoff needed.

    Tell that to the 2004 Auburn Tigers.

    Re: Your opinion on the BCS...

    Just voting playoff and not explaining how it would work is a cop out

    It won't work without hurting the bottom 50-75% of Division I

    +1 game (that to me is a playoff - would include at least the top 4 times)

    Re: Your opinion on the BCS...

    its pretty clear to most people that outside of the top 2 or 3 teams, very very rarely does anyone else have a reasonable gripe against not being able to be the national champ. So, therefore a playoff is hardly *necessary*

    It would however settle every debate as to which team was the true number one. But like i said, i really believe the number 1 team -- actually won the national championship every year since 1998.

    Does anyone argue against that? Some may say utah in 09, but no way they'd have beaten florida. Or auburn in '05, but i don't think they'd beat USC.

    So, it wouldn't really change the outcome of the naitonal champ

    That's why they play the games... history shows the perceived underdog often has a chance. Since they didn't play, we'll never know.

    Eight teams. Incorporate the BCS bowls, Cotton, and Cap One into the playoff structure. Everybody who finished ranked outside of the top 8 don't make the playoffs but still go to bowl games. Playoff in place. Remaining 90% of other bowls remain in tact.

    With less coverage, attention, money, etc.

    Not good for ISU

    In the case of an 8 team tourn, 6 BCS conf champs + 2 at-large bids (for the Boise St's, TCU's, Utah's, etc)
