Ric’s Playoff System for College FootballDecember 4, 2007 at 4:35 pm | Posted in Gridiron, Ric | 3 Comments
Okay, to make up for Dave’s slackness, here’s something to chew on. We all know that college football is in chaos because it relies on the same system as ice skating to determine it’s champion. Here’s my solution.
You take the winners of each of the BCS conferences as well as two at large bids. You then seed them(I used BCS rankings to seed them). There are many ways they could be seeded, which would be what the arguments would be about. This is roughly the way it would look for this year.
ACC Representative: Virginia Tech 3rd Seed/3rd Seed
Big Ten: Ohio State 1st Seed/ 1st Seed
Big 12: Oklahoma 4th Seed/4th Seed
SEC: LSU 2nd Seed/2nd Seed
Pac-10:USC 5th Seed or 7th Seed
Big East: West Virginia 6th seed or 8th Seed
At-Large bid:Georgia 7th Seed or 5th Seed
At-Large bid:Missouri 8th Seed or 6th Seed
You get rid of the bull shit 12th regular season game. You can still let the rest of .500 and above teams play in the Krusty Burger Sandwich Bowl. You have 7 games in the playoffs that can be held at the various traditional BCS bowl sites (Rose, Sugar, Fiesta, Orange) plus a few others that could garner some serious dough. Sure, Hawai would be whining. But if you win all your games and you’re still only ranked 10th in the country, well, tough fucking luck. At least you’re in Hawai and you can cry in your tropical, girly drink.
Thanks. Give me my sack of money.
