    Louisville is 3rd and if they stay undefeated, it looks like they will play the winner of Ohio State-Michigan. I'm rooting for them. Hopefully they win it all.

    I am not. I would like Ohio State, Louisville, and Michigan to all lose. That way the only unbeaten teams are Rutgers and Boise State. I would love to see how he BCS would handle it if those were the only 2 undefeated lefts!

    How exactly would the BCS handle it?

    It doesnt have a choice. The top 2 teams in the standings would play & those teams would most likely be Texas & Florida.

    not neccesarily. If rutgers beats lousiville it will skyrocket up the polls. With no losses and with everyone else with losses they will close the gap. It would be interestign if they got to 1-2.
    I dont like the BCS and am cherring for diaster!

    The BCS is a better system than just having the media choose the teams.

    The system isnt perfect? Agreed. But what is the alternative?

    Most people hate the computers. But I think that there has to be computers because they are not biased. And this is coming from someone who's favorite team (Texas) is ranked 10th in the computers & 3rd in 4th in the human polls.

    Playoff


    Every other sport, not to mention every other division of collefge football, has a playoff system. Why shouldn't Division 1 have one?

    How would it work?

    You take the top 8 teams?

    What about the team that is ranked #9 in the polls? That team would be just like the team that finishes #3 now.

    And now every team plays a 12 game schedule. So the SEC, Big 12, & ACC champs would have to play about 16 games if they wanted to win the playoff. If we did that then the next step would be to just start handing out paychecks cuz they are practically playing an NFL season.

    We're not the ones to devise a new system, but it could work along those guidelines. Similar to NBA playoffs IMO. #1 vs #8, #2 vs #7 and so on.

    D1AA uses 16 teams I'm pretty sure. That way you have 4 weekends of games. There is a way to do it and would be a much bigger success and not a complete waste of time like most of the bowl games.

    Ah there it is!

    You cant take away the bowl games cuz the NCAA banks on those heavy. I dont think they would ever lose them.

    i love the BCS and i would hate a playoff. not enough games being played and the games wouldn't have nearly as much significance as they do now. it would totally ruin college football. don't touch it. the BCS is AWESOME.

    i'd love to see louisville in the title game. they're good enough to compete with any team in the country just because of brian brohm. they can BEAT any team in the country because of the great players around him.

    You are right on.

    I think Louisville could give Ohio St quite a game.

    They get lost in the shuffle cuz they play in the Big East but they have been a top 15 team for at least the past 5 years.

    based on everything i've seen from both teams, there's plenty of reason to think that louisville will win by at least 3 TD's. easily. they're much better than rutgers in every facet of the game.

    I've heard the #9 ranked team argument before and don't buy it. I would much rather have the #9 team get shafted than the #3 team in the country, anytime you have a system that crowns two champions by having shared titles is a BROKEN SYSTEM.

    Keeping the BCS around has nothing to do with the amount of games teams would have to play, it has to do with the amount of money the schools make with the Bowl system and thats it.

    A full month went by from when Texas played Colorado and USC played UCLA until the time they played each other in the title game, theres plenty of room for a playoff system.

    Even if you take only the top four teams, thats only one extra game. I would take just the top 4 teams, because how often do you see 5 teams go undefeated in a season, it doesn't happen. All they have to do is take atleast the top 4 teams and shared titles are null and void and completely eliminated, but that would make to much sense and the NCAA isn't about good sense.

    I completely wrote them off when they revoked Mike Williams eligibility after a supreme court told him it was legal for him to enter the draft. So Mike hired a agent and legally entered the draft only to have the original decision overturned and then instead of the NCAA stepping in and fixing this unique situation they completely mishandled it. Nothing will ever change until the NCAA officials pull their heads out of their rears.

    You can't respond there unless you're already a member, so you'll have to leave your take here.

    I think this would be bigger than March Madness.
