I think 3 non BCS teams in an 8 team playoff is too many.
Keep in mind, the Big East would probably be in those 3 non-BCS teams more often than not.
And while I like the whole conference champions only angle, I just dont think it would work.
"work"? It's the EASIEST solution, it would definitely work.
I say you have 1 guaranteed spot for highest rated non-BCS School to allow them to have a shot then the final 2 spots go to the highest rated non-Conferenece Champ.
I don't even know what you're saying here, so I'm going to have to go ahead and say that wouldn't work.
Seeding would be based on BCS ranking.
This shite here just drives me fricking nuts. Either have a playoff or a have polls, why in the frick would you want BOTH??? I thought the whole idea of a playoff is to eliminate the polls.
I think it would work better and give a team that lost an early game to a conf rival something to still fight for.
In other words, minimize the importance of the regular season - which is exactly what I'm trying to explain how NOT to do.
There is absolutely no valid justification to have wild-card teams in a college football playoff.
8 champions, no wild-cards and no byes.
It doesn't get any simpler or more fair than that.
