Thank god we finally have a playoff, a big step in the right direction.

The new system is better than what we had, but it needs to be 8 teams

5 - power 5 conference winners

oh, but a conference winner might have 3 or 4 losses...

So the Posted Image what, if a 7 - 9 NFL team can make the playoffs as a division winner, a 9 - 5 ACC conference winner can be an AQ for the playoffs.

THEN take the best 3 available teams.

Seed the teams 1 through 8 and BOOM

perfect playoffs

The best way would be use the BCS metric, then take the top 4 or 8 and do the playoff.

4 teams is an awkward number, especially considering there are five conferences- you are guaranteed to leave out a major conference champion, and there are plenty of plausible scenarios in which only 2-3 of the 5 conferences would be represented in the playoffs.

This system sure isn't this way to help the SEC its to give everyone a chance. Take year before last for example its messed up in this playoff a team like UGA wouldn't get in although they were clearly one of the best 2 or 3. I don't see two teams from the same conference in whether they deserve it or not.

Bama and LSU would both get in during 2011, but I do think that would be rare.

UGA wasn't a top two or three team that year. Plus UF would've gotten in, and if I remember correctly they were 4th so they would've played notre dame. But they a probably would've put them as a three seed to make them play Bama and avoid another all SEC championship game.


I agree with dcbl though. 8 teams is the way to go. But just make sure that you don't automatically give the conference winners the top 5 seeds. That will help to make sure each college football game is as important as possible(which is one of my favorite things about the sport). If the big 12 champ has 2-3 losses then put them as the 8 seed and make them play #1.


I'm sure we're moving towards an 8 team playoff, but we have to wait for a few teams and/or conferences to get screwed first so that there is a big push for it.

Conference champs don't get the top 5 seeds, they just get in

Top team gets the number one seed

let's say that an 11 - 1 Bama misses the playoffs, their only loss being to an 11 - 1 Auburn

Auburn's only loss is to a 10 - 2 Georgia

In that scenario - UGA & Aubbie play a rematch for the SEC Championship and bama, misses the game but MIGHT be the number one seed in the playoffs

You can't extend the college football season per NCAA, and this would def extend it. Take out the space between end of season and bowls? Then you lose the extra practice time. There's not a clear cut solution to be had. BCS isn't perfect, this new playoff isn't perfect, but it's better than what we've had before.

I agree with Cocky here.

The SEC could leave the NCAA and sort of create their own football league and still succeed by a large margin.

I'm trying to be serious here. The SEC is one of the largest, most popular brands. Given the attendance records of the SEC, television contracts, etc, you don't think they could go and do it on their own?

Not without the other power conferences. We can't just play each other all the time, and if we break off we wouldn't be able to play the other teams or be eligible for the playoffs.

Gonna turn into the same pussy ass whining that gave us 68 tourney games. Scale it back to 32 and no more than 8 in football.
