Default how would you do the bcs championship?

i know it's only may but just curious with all the problems with the bcs championship system how would you do it?

personally i like the way it is now but i would make every conference have a championship game and a team has to win their championship game to move onto the bcs championship game...if that was in place last year it would have been usc vs lsu and lsu would have pulled out a close won over usc in my mind

I totally agree that all conferences should have a championship game. I would also disclude Sagarin rankings in figuring out the bowl rankings. I hate that damn computer system he has.

The main problem I have with the current system is when we end up with two teams number one. There should be some sort of game to decide it. Having played all those games all year just to have to share the national championship seems like a real slight on the accomplishment.

Leave the bowl games intact, then add a BCS Bowl playoff to settle matters.
Two extra big time games with revenue from lucrative televison contracts used as a stipend to College Football players around the country. Win Win

How would I do the bcs championship? I would get rid of it, and go to a playoff. Keep some of the bowl games for the teams that don't make the tourny, and take the top 8 (no matter what conference they are in) and have a playoff. I bet the money that would be made in those games would dwarf the amount made in bowl games (just look how much Basketball makes). Just think you could have big time teams like Texas, Ohio State, Miami, and others playing several times, and the high roller fans would go to every game their team played in and spend money. For picking the top 8, use all the polls they use now and combine them and take the 8 with the higher rankings. I know someone will always get left out, but when was the last time a number 9 team won the national championship in a bowl game.

They need to do something similar to the basketball brackets, but do something just like what Vman said.

I'd would drop the BCS system. It seems like the Media and Coaches have less room for error than some arbitrary statistical formula. The ACC, Big 12, Big 10 (11), Pac 10, and SEC champions would get automatically in one of the 4 big Bowls. The Big East would lose their auto bid because of the reduction in quality football teams in that conference.

The two best teams from the six non-automatic conferences would have a championship game. That winner would get into the field of 8 teams. There would be two at-large bids available for the two highest ranked teams (average of the coaches and media) that did not get an automatic bid. There would be a list of tiebreakers or a formula used ONLY in the event that the poll average was the same for two teams.

There would be no limitations on how many teams came from a particular conference. If a conference has 3 of the top 8 teams in the country, they all deserve to go.

The teams would be seeded 1-8 by a committee like the NCAA tournament has. This would help avoid nightmares like the Florida/Miami Orange Bowl we had last year. The four bowls would be round 1. The next week, two of the four bowls would get round 2 games. The Championship Game would go to one of the two bowls that didn't have a round 2 game.

Oh I forgot one thing. Teams would be limited to 11 regular season games unless they were playing a non-conference game against Hawaii (really the only way Hawaii can get teams to play against them). You could still have the early (preseason) games but they would count as one of the 11. If you put a cap on the regular season, it helps countbalance the impact of two additional games for the two teams that play in the Championship Game.
