    Yeah, I'd be completely against having teams get in just because they're from a conference. That's the problem with the bowls now. A few years ago and 8-4 Uconn played a very good Oklahoma team (who I think lost 1 or 2) and was creamed, but they got in cause the won the big east.

    You're either good enough to make the playoff or you're not, conference alone shouldn't be enough.

    According to that link, those were the last rankings before the bowls and BCS championship game. Were you looking at the final, post championship game rankings?

    Right, but that was last year. On any given year, there's nothing that precludes the top 4 teams from being in the playoff. I would contend that the law of averages will play out and you'll have different conferences represented often. The SEC is hands down the best conference right now, so they'll be represented as expected, but there's nothing that says the conference can't have a down year. 15 years ago people would've complained that Florida St. and Miami would be in every year, but that changed quite a bit, didn't it?

    Gotcha, guess I was going off the final results after the bowls.

    Agreed. I want to see the best four teams, no matter what conference they're from. Sure there will be arguments from the likes of Oregon, Arkansas, etc (last years 5th and 6th ranked teams entering the bowls), but you'll never avoid that. Shoot, just look at the critiques of March Madness every year. If they go to 8 teams, #9 and below will complain. It is what it is. But at least this way, the best handfull of teams in the country get to decide things where it belongs- on the field.

    TCU is already a member of the Big 12. Boise State needs to re think its position and join the Big 12. I see the Big 12 as adding teams at least to get back to 12 anyways. I agree with the previous comment, there will be a lot of money thrown out, J Jones will get his share of the title games thats for sure. Just hope it doesnt land in NYC or some other spot no one wants to go to.

    Re: OT - 4 Team Playoff for College Football

    Ultimately this will be fun to watch / argue because there will be a lot more controversy. But I just see no way that teams from smaller conferences will get considered and maybe that's OK. It'll also be interesting to see if there is a scenario where two SEC teams are selected and a 3rd has a solid case to be included.

    Say for example this year it ends up as USC, LSU, Alabama and a decision has to be made between an 11-1 Oregon team and an 11-1 Arkansas team that played a tougher schedule.

    TCU is not in the BIG12, or do you mean they've agreed and will be a member?

    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.

    There sure is.

    The final four is selected by a committee, not the final BCS ranking. If a school like Boise State is on the bubble or sitting in that 4th spot, I'll bet you they get the shaft in favor of school that will draw more cash.

    Right.

    And at 8, the chance for them to get the screws is greater since they typically rank in that area.
