On Monday night, Florida State won the BCS National Championship by beating Auburn 34-31. Next season, the BCS will be replaced by the College Football Playoff, which will put the top four teams as chosen by a selection committee into semifinals games. The winners of the semifinals games will play for the national championship the following week. Jimbo Fisher gave his opinion on the playoff system today, and it sounds like he's not so pumped up about it:

"When I was a child, I remember who won the Sugar Bowl, who won the Orange Bowl, who won the Cotton Bowl, who won the Rose Bowl," Fisher said Tuesday. "It was a big deal to go. We act like that's not a big deal now. That's one of the great things you have in college football. We're so involved in winning a championship that we're forgetting the tradition and history of doing things."

"How many times was the BCS ever wrong? How many times did they ever get it wrong at the end? We've still got the same problem. You're going to argue over who's four and five or who's two and three."

"These guys don't get to go play in an NFL season. They don't get to go rehab all day. They got school. They got study halls. They got things to do," he said. "Those bodies at that age aren't developed like a man is."

"If you start in December and finish in the middle of January, when does recruiting season go? You've got a lot of things that we'd better be careful in this playoff system before we go crazy on it," he said.

"I'm for it. Hey, playoffs -- if that's what you're going to do, we're going to line up and play them. But I just don't want to take the true history and tradition of those bowl games -- maybe you're 11-2, dadgum, that's a pretty good year. Now ... you act like somebody should get fired. It's a little bit ridiculous."

What do think? BCS or College Football Playoff?
