    We are down to four super conferences you pipe rider.

    The ACC and Big East will be irrelevant before long and this playoff is going to expand.

    If you win one of the major conferences you will most likely be in anyway.

    There are not 4 super conferences right now and no you certainly won't "most likely" be in if you win a major conference. How often have the 4 best teams been from 4 different conferences.

    WTF is wrong with you that you don't want the best teams regardless in the playoffs???

    Just winning a major conference championship won't get you in if you still have a couple of losses. You could assume any team from a major conference with one loss or less is going to have a high probability of getting in but they would be rated in the top 5 probably anyway in that scenario after they won their conference championship game.

    It's official. The deal will last 12 years, so it will run through 2025.

    Sucks that they weren't able to go ahead and make it 8 teams.

    I expect almost as much controversy with this plan and the current BCS Championship. There are going to be many years where it will be difficult to say who the 4th best team is.

    The BCS voting to decide who gets one of the 4 spots should be interesting.

    That's the problem.

    They'll try their best to make it that way.

    Hell, they already rank most the teams in the top 10 even if they suck.
