    BCS final four madness begins - I am confused

    Was watching BCS countdown show. At the end they are discussing the what if scenario if we had 4 team playoff this year. They have ND vs Florida and Bama vs UGA. They said that if UGA or Bama loses, then then that team is out and Oregon is in.

    That is just stupid in my opinion. Why does Oregon (a team not playing in their championship game) get in above a team that lost in their championship game to either a number 2 or number 3 ranked team. This sounds like the same issue that people had against Bama getting into championship game last year after not winning SEC.

    I just see this whole final four being chosen by a committee as huge mistake. How do they sort it which SEC team goes where between UGA, Florida, and Bama?

    Why can we not have a system like the NFL?

    I think the playoff is a huge mistake! After listening to them tonight, I understand it as you have to win the SEC Championship game, then you have to win TWO more games to win the national championship. I think that is way too much. By the time you win those three games, you probably would have had to beat 3 top 5 teams in a row.

    that would be the argument against conference championship games, sometimes they help sometimes they don't.

    What championship game did we win last year to get in the Title game? None. Since we've benefited from it before I think we can have few real complaints about it.

    Sounds like what a playoff is supposed to do.

    I think ALL conferences should have a championship and all teams need to be in a Conference but that's just me. Oh and the ACC and Big East need their AQ status revoked.

    Sooo. Let me tag on to this thought but i think i know the answer ($$$$). Why not have it set up like this.....if the SEC has two teams in the top 4, then no SEC championship game is played as it is unnecessary? I guess this game cannot be set up with contingencies?? I just see less of a need for it after the top 4 teams being selected barring some odd circumstances. It just seems clear that playing the championship game going forward can only hurt us as we move closer to a playoff format. We beat each other up enough already during the regular season.

    I agree with this. This whole playoff that they are having now is going to be even worse than the BCS is right now. I tend to like the BCS, get rid of a couple of rules then it is near perfect.
    ROLL TIDE!

    Their scenario is flawed. Was it not announced two weeks ago that the playoff will include 3 conference champions and an at-large team (possibly a 4th conference champion)?

    I just dont understand how the system is going to be any better. There is still automatic bowl qualifications and how expensive would it be to travel to mulitple bowls games each off season? Who is on the committee?

    too late to complain about it now and they didnt ask me, but why not follow a system similar to the NFL? Each conference has a champion and those champions are seeded to play in the bracket.

    Totally agree - the new system will benefit the Domers and big12

    So what happens if you have 3 SEC teams in the top 4 like you have this year? Isn't only the SEC champion allowed to go?

    I've never been for the playoff system. Weekend like a couple of weeks ago will be ruined. True the Oregon and KState loses would have been exciting with a playoff system but i wouldn't have been as captivated like I am with the current system. The FBS has one of the most unique systems in sports. I believe that's why college football is so successful. The BCS gives people so much to talk about.

    The at large could be a non conference champion from a BCS conference. What I heard was 3 highest ranked conference champions or the golden domers from either 4 or 5 conferences including the Mt West (might be 6 actually). The at large would be the highest ranked non conference champion.
