Default BCS rejects plan to turn system into 4-team playoff

http://www.wral.com/sports/football/ncaa/story/2818248/

Quote:
HOLLYWOOD, Fla. — Even a three-game playoff was too much for the BCS. Bowl Championship Series officials rejected a plan Wednesday to turn the much-criticized system for deciding a national champ into a playoff involving four teams, starting in the 2010 season.

The BCS format will remain the same until at least the 2014 season.

"After a very thorough, very good discussion among the group, we have decided that because we feel at this time the BCS is in an unprecedented state of health, we feel it's never been healthier during its first decade, we have made a decision to move forward in the next cycle with the current format," Atlantic Coast Conference commissioner John Swofford said.

During five hours of meetings, Southeastern Conference commissioner Mike Slive presented a plan for a plus-one format, matching the No. 1 team in the nation against No. 4, and No. 2 vs. No. 3 in the marquee bowl games. The winners would meet about a week later in the BCS title game. The plan also called for creating a sixth BCS game.

In the end, only the SEC and ACC wanted to even continue the discussion of the plus-one.
Quote:
There was no vote taken, the commissioners said, but the leaders of the Big East, Big 12, Pac-10 and Big Ten made it clear they didn't want to move the BCS toward a playoff in any way.

Any change would've needed approval by university presidents.

So the BCS will stick with the imperfect system it has instead of installing another.

From their point of view... why the hassle of changing it if you still make oodles of money playing a worthless computer ranked matchup?

The SEC wants the tourney, mostly because of what happened to Auburn a few years back. Undefeated and not in the BCS title game. Bull****.

Which isn't the issue at all. What's broken is the fact that the championship is not decided on the field. The BCS does not aim to remedy that, so technically, you're correct. It does what it's supposed to, which is not provide a clear champion.

The bottom line is, as long as the schools are making assloads of money, it doesn't matter what the majority of fans want.

As I said before....

Auburn going undefeated and not being in the title game means that the system is broken.

You are entitled to your opinion, but you are wrong.

That is what the BCS is supposed to do. Not any of that other "champion decided on the field" crap. It's all about money, and it will always be about money. If somebody can figure out a way to get the Rose Bowl to not think so highly of itself that it will stop impeding a playoff system, then that person should be put in charge of NCAA College football.

nope. the BCS is supposed to whittle it down to two teams and take as much human bias out of the equation as possible and relying more on what happens on the field. that's what it does every year.

If you honestly think the BCS system eliminates all bias, you are far far gone, and this discussion is pointless.

You're wrong sir.

The only reason this system is in place is $$. They could give a rats a$$ about "whittling down" to two teams.

Bias? I could argue almost every year dating back to Nebraska/Michigan back in '97 that the NCAA can't get it right. They got lucky as hell with USC/Texas a couple years ago....

As long as the current Big Ten President is around, there will never be a playoff system. The Rose Bowl is worth too much to them.

Default Re: BCS rejects plan to turn system into 4-team playoff

Here's the bottom line. How many of college football fanatics would stop going to bowl games until the BCS capitulates and puts in a playoff system?

Until you hit these people where it hurts, the pocketbook, the BCS has absolutely no reason to change.

Since there is no alternative to college football and hence no competition, there are two way to change this system. First, stop spending money on college football or, second, stop buying the products that advertise within the BCS System. (The Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, FedEx Orange Bowl, CitiCorp Rose Bowl)

You mean they got it right?...

If y'all want to eliminate bias, get rid of the preseason polls, not the BCS.

There is competition but you wouldn't be cheering for OSU or UT or USC. You would have to cheer for Appalachian State, Texas State, Sam Houston, and Youngstown State. But those arn't "big name schools" so the chances aren't likely.

Default Re: BCS rejects plan to turn system into 4-team playoff

I'm pretty sure everybody here can see that the only sport that doesn't have a playoff system is the only one that's right.

BCS just won't change unless ratings, and advertising dollars both go down. Only then will they scramble to make fans happy again.

Also, a big F U to the Rose Bowl and the Big Ten. Cause Ohio State and Michigan was just a dynamite game last year.
