So... after this showing of shit tier bowl games full of blowouts I think it's time we go back to this format instead of letting old white guys decide a top 4 for a playoff.
>letting old white guys decide a top 2 is better than letting old white guys decide a top 4
let old white guys decide a top 8 and that'll give them room to fuck up. there are only ever 3-6 truly great teams a season so its better to include them all plus a few undeserving (which will get eliminated) rather than leave a few of them out and force them to face wastes of space like iowa outside of the playoff
>why can't we stop having a playoff decided by biased committee members and instead have a smaller playoff decided by biased pollsters
This is a fucking stupid argument. The playoff ought to be larger to eliminate error, not smaller. A single title game has a dramatically higher chance of not having the best team in it.
You guys overvalue the computers from the BCS, it was basically always decided by biased pollsters and was a shitshow every year.
Does anyone remember last season? Alabama/Ohio State was the only good game. Oregon blew out Florida State, and Ohio State blew out Oregon.
Even the NY6 games sucked except for Baylor/Michigan State, right?
Why do people keep saying 5 conferences and 3 randos? You can do 8 cons and even though they will usually lose, being in a top 8 conference still means you get a chance to go to the NFL so there should be more parity the longer it goes.
AAC, ACC, BIG12, BIG10, MWC, PAC-12, SEC, AND +1
We create a new conference out of all the teams that were unable to fit in to discreet 12 team conferences.
Each champion goes to a Elite 8 bowl series. We eliminate a whole non-con game from everyone's schedule. Its easy.
Conferences will realign on their own. If you're in a conference with a bunch of powerhouses and there's another conference with a few mediocre teams, why wouldn't you switch over since you'd be basically be guaranteed a playoff spot?
