The BCS.

I think the system is shit and needs to be redone.

A playoff system is better. Every year, this same argument comes up: more money to be made in a play off system, smaller schools could make more money in the playoff system, larger schools that do not deserve their ranking will be eliminated in the first round, and meaningless bowl games can be eliminated.

Some propose a hybrid system that allows for both the BCS and playoffs. The top 12 teams go to the playoffs. The rest assume their normal bowl games.

That doesn't solve the problems of truly spectacular teams missing out like Boise State did. They were clearly one of the best teams in NCAA football, that year.

Maybe the system could be expanded to the top 24 teams?

What are you thoughts. Please, give me solutions, too.

The top 16 teams according to polls have a one game playoff structure. It's all based on rankings so 1 faces of against 16. The major bowl games (Orange, Rose etc.) could be the first set of playoffs games. This would be a total of 3 games (so an extra two games). If your not in the top 16, too bad.

The rest of teams after 16 can have the stupid no name bowl games as per usual.

Ahhhh. I see. That would work out. I still want some of the other teams (who may have a weak schedule) to get a chance to avoid that Boise State crap we had a few years back. Could Boise State have won the BCS Championship? Maybe..maybe not. We will never know because it didn't happen.

Well, in my opinion, there isn't a way to please everybody based on the amount of teams that play Division 1 football and the game of football.

So in reality, if you can't make it in the top 16 teams, there is probably a reason for it. There will be teams complaining at the 17,18 spots who don't make it but where do you stop letting people in?

I'm not a huge follower of college football but if you want to get a chance, you must win. So if you have a weak schedule, if your a team that wants to boast about being a contender, the team should theoretically be undefeated, or at least lose one game.

I agree Dom,, but I've always thought maybe only the top 4 to 8 teams in a playoff and then finally the last two standing play for everything..
