Shoreman's take: Pete, I'm in favor of a playoff system also. But how is an eight-team system going to work? There are 11 conferences and 4 independents at this level in college. Some proposals want to use the top eight BCS teams. Under that system you might get as many as 4 teams from one conference. To me the BCS ranking system is part of the problem and should not be part of the solution. Others propose using the 6 conference champions from the BcS conferences and 2 at larges. (Pac10, Big 12, Big 10, SEC, ACC and Big East). This could leave conference champions from the other 5 conferences out of the playoffs. Since UTAH plays in the Mountain West, they might not get in. I think its going to take aleast a 12 game playoff with 11 conference champions and one at large bid. This would take 4 rounds with 4 teams getting a 1st round bye. It could easily be expanded to 16 teams and eliminate the byes. I think an 8-eam system would only lead to a 12 or 16-eam system. I like that system but what do think?
