    some day, eventually, the NCAA will learn that the BCS doesn't work.

    everyone who supports the BCS says the entire season is a playoff. well, if that's the case and texas beats oklahoma head-to-head, has the same exact record and plays in the same conference/division, shouldn't they be considered the better team? that's how a playoff works!

    i'm not a texas fan, not in the slightest, but this entire situation is just wrong.

    One day, before I die, I hope to see the National Champion determined on a field instead of a computer.

    I assume the bowls would be incorporated into any playoff system.

    you can't assume anything when it comes to college football.

    they try to change the rules so often to make the games shorter when the solution is so simple; don't stop the clock for a first down.

    then they say they can't have an 8 team playoff because the kids would miss too much school, even though there is a 65 team playoff in basketball that takes about 6 weeks to complete.

    i wish they would just admit it's about money and stop acting like they're really getting away with the lame *** excuses they try to make us believe.

    A playoff system is Barack's first line of business.

    America voted for CHANGE!

    Actually ESPN would love to make the bowls as part of a playoff. That would be great for them.

    All we really need is to add one more game...just one more darn game. That would make the whole system so much better. The BCS ranking can be used to determine the top 4 teams....1 plays 4, 2 plays 3 and the winners meet and decide it on the field. No way Texas shouldn't be in the mix.

    next 2 teams ranked who didn't win their conference

    seed will be determined by overall ranking, not record

    For starters I could live with Soxcat's suggestion of allowing the top two BCS-ranked after the traditional bowl season facing off.
