A Step In The Right Direction

by Cheval John

It looks like we might have a playoff after all.

Today, the commissioners of the BCS conferences agreed to a four-team playoff system at a meeting in Chicago.

The playoff will be a first in the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS), the highest division in college football

The move could come into effect in 2014 pending final approval by the board of college presidents, who are set to meet next week in Washington, D.C.

Before, the two top teams that would play for the BCS title was selected based off of strength of schedule, the type of conference that a team came from and an undefeated season.

The selection is made by the Associated Press writers, coaching polls and the BCS computers.

The teams plays at a designated site to determine the national champion.

What do you think about a playoff in the FBS?

    I’m not quite as on board with the new changes as everyone else is. I think it poses some problems and more so than what other people think. More fair for sure but, as a casual college football fan, I don’t know if I’m quite behind the playoff changes. This is a big change and definitely will quiet down the BCS critics but it’ll be more interesting to see how this affects College Football over the next 5 or so years and if there are going to be even more changes down the road. Also, you think you could take a gander over at my latest blog post because I would absolutely love to hear what you have to say http://chrisross91.wordpress.com/2012/06/21/bcs-slippery-slope/
