Playoff Bound

20 06 2012

After years and years of debate along with an innumerable amount of ideas spouted from fans, analysts and executives, the BCS is within reach of an actual playoff system. No, I’m not pulling your leg.

The Associated Press has reported that BCS commissioners have agreed upon a playoff format for college football consisting of four teams selected by a committee. There would be two semifinals matches along with the current BCS bowl games and a national championship game in the stadium of the highest bidding city, ESPN sources said. This would be implemented in the 2014 football season.

The model will be presented to the university presidents next week in Washington D.C. for its necessary approval.

Commissioners have relentlessly been working to create this brand new college football concept and recently met for four hours to construct this plan. However, they didn’t want to reveal many details before they discussed them with other parties.

Whether or not you agree with the proposed system, the significance of this is indisputable. We haven’t seen a change this big in collegiate sports since the BCS came to existence in 1998. Furthermore, there couldn’t be a more built up modification. Every single college football season the past 14 years has had one or two teams face the wrath of the skewed BCS system, and countless people on the internet have attempted to tell the association how they should go about working things.

Well, they might have finally listened. They might have finally formulated a blueprint that will lead to a fair fight for all college football teams.

Playoffs, here we come.

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/
