NCAA President Mark Emmert reiterated support of 4-team BCS playoff to determine national champion today
Christopher Walsh covers Alabama football for BamaOnline, 247Sports, and is the author of 18 books.
So, leave the BCS Bowls as is and the Champ' Game open until they are settled? How many weeks between the semi's and the finial?
"BINGO! That was a goody!" - Coach Bryant on Sunday afternoons with Coca Cola & Golden Flakes
Works for me.
And then 8...16...32..........
"Hey, hey, hey. A life. A life, Jimmy, you know what that is? It's the shit that happens while you're waiting for moments that never come."
The complaining wont stop. It will just be transferred to people arguing about the 3rd, 4th and even 2nd place teams. No one will ever be happy in the impossible-to-please, whiney society we live in today.
Exactly, opens up teams like a Boise or an Auburn to say we are just on the bubble to get in.
be just like the basketball tourney that expanded to 64 b/c of all the complaining now they added more b/c of the complaining. Football will follow suit. The players dont want a playoff b/c they play enough games as it is.
FAIL reduce regular season by 1 or 2 games?
Might as well get on board guys. It's coming sooner than later!

Only sport in the history of man that doesnt have a true playoff system and one of the top cash cows. Yet nobody can complain about that? Get real!
And hopefully the 4 teams are determined by the final BCS rankings instead of having AQs.
This is what happens when you give losers trophies. RTR.
I can go with a 4team or +1 playoff but only if they do a 10 yr study on it. CFB is unique and I want to keep it that way. We need to give the +1 a chance to be studied before jumping to something more.
We get our chance every year. Why give Houston and Boise St a chance for playing a crappy schedule and conference?
The tournament expands because of money not because of people complaining.
If they have AQs it would defeat the purpose of the playoffs. No way at 8-4 clemson team is the 4th best team. Just saying. If they go to 8 or 16 then it will b AQ IMO.
Ahh the slippery slope argument....the favorite of people who have no other viable arguments to make.
TRADITION IS THE FOUNDATION GREAT PROGRAMS ARE BUILT UPON.
