    OT - 4 Team Playoff for College Football



    http://collegefootballtalk.nbcsports...-team-playoff/


    Glad to finally see this be implemented. It's been too long. I think eventually it should move to a 6 team playoff (with the 1st and 2nd ranked team receiving a bye and teams 3,4,5, and 6 play each other, etc).

    Lipstick on a pig.

    Yes, the powers that be granted us a playoff system of sorts. But take a closer look. They are going to use the top 4 teams as calculated by that dreadful computer program. Schools like Boise State, TCU, etc are still going to get the shaft. And they are being all hush hush about who gets what piece of the financial pie.

    And I'd expect the championship game to be played in Cowboys Stadium every other year since the person with the highest bid will receive the championship game every year. Not many folks can compete with Jerry Jones in terms of cash on hand.

    Good point.

    I hate it. It's all about the money and I think it will water down the bowl games which I have always enjoyed.

    Once every three years or so there was a team that felt they got slighted by not going to the championship game. Now that there are four teams, it's gonna be more teams feeling slighted. How will they decide? By some unnamed committee again.. I'm sure they love the controversy and attention and it'll quickly move to an 8 team playoff but it's still decided by polls and committees

    They finally try to fix it, and still fuck it up. 4 teams is a joke, and what is the criteria for their selection? Should have at least 1 team per conference.

    If that was the case Alabama wouldn't have made it last year.... and Boise will never get a shot.
    They've just set up a system that will have people crying foul all over the place. But they'll make a boatload of money. At least that's my first reaction

    I think it's better than what there was.

    4 teams is enough for me, I mean at the end of the day, how many teams last year had a legitimate gripe to play for the national championship?

    I would like to see more than 1 per conference, but at least 1 per + the independents.

    It's a move in the right direction, although I think it should have been 8 teams. This is most likely a trial thing and it will get expanded to 8 teams a couple of years after this one starts. I do still hate the way the 4 teams are decided though.

    Truth be told I haven't enjoyed the bowls since the old format where there were a ton of meaningful games all on New Years Day. That made it one of the best days of the year. I hate having all the decent games being spread over a two week old period. Now it's tough to see all the good games because of schedules, obligations, etc.

    Put into the context of other NFL owners, Jerry's wealth isnt all that impressive. If it really came down who had the most cash, Paul Allen who owns the Seahawks could buy and sell Jerry Jones a dozen times over.

    There's no way to shaft Boise State if it goes to 8. At four, SEC dominance will remain the prominent issue. What they need is a few upsets.
