First round, second week of December.

Game 1 #1 vs. #16 - Liberty Bowl
Game 2 #2 vs. #15 - Motor City Bowl
Game 3 #3 vs. #14 - Houston Bowl
Game 4 #4 vs. #13 - Holiday Bowl
Game 5 #5 vs. #12 - Sun Bowl
Game 6 #6 vs. #11 - Citrus Bowl
Game 7 #7 vs. #10 - Mobile Bowl
Game 8 #8 vs. #9 - Alamo Bowl

2nd round, third week of December.

Gm 9 - Gm 1 winner vs. Gm 8 winner - Cotton Bowl
Gm 10 - Gm 2 winner vs. Gm 7 winner - Peach Bowl
Gm 11 - Gm 3 winner vs. Gm 6 winner - Outback Bowl
Gm 12 - Gm 4 winner vs. Gm 5 winner - Fiesta Bowl

Semifinal round, last week of December.

Gm 13 - Gm 9 winner vs. Gm 12 winner - Rose Bowl
Gm 14 - Gm 10 winner vs. Gm 11 winner - Orange Bowl

NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP, first week of January.

Game 13 winner vs. Game 14 winner - Sugar Bowl

Rotate the big bowls, like they do now, for the title game.
One of the bigger revenues of bowls is the fans. So I'll use Texas fans as an example...

Round #1 - Travel to San Antonio (Alamo Bowl)
Round #2 - Travel to Dallas (Cotton Bowl)
Round #3 - Travel to Pasadena (Rose Bowl)
Round #4 - Travel to Miami (Orange Bowl)

Some schools have trouble getting their fans to go to one bowl game. Heck, some have trouble getting them to go to a home game. And now they're going to travel to 4 bowl games in a 4 week period?

Interesting idea but it couldn't happen.

Very good point Huge. Think of it this way. Most fans look at the Bowl game as a vacation...it is during the holidays, and these people (most from up-north) love coming to the southern US to see their team play, and stay warm for a week or so. Now compound that with the extremely expensive tix, and the fact that these fans could not travel to a bowl game (playoff) every week for four weeks (accomodations expensive, too).

If I am not mistaken, the way the D1-AA, DII & DIII do it is much like the NFL...home field advantage, etc. The Bowl people would be pissed unless the teams were playing at the Bowls...like @ Miami (Orange Bowl) or @LSU (move to Sugar Bowl), @USC (Rose Bowl), and so forth.

Cash is KING, and until otherwise, we, the fans, will come second to any true system. Maybe it would be best if UH went to D1-AA, that way I could at least follow a team that would be a part of true football, not the greedy BCS HONKS!
If the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail.
