    Not necessarily true. You could do a 3-week, 8-team playoff during winter break very easily. Finals end in the middle of December.

    Have the quarterfinals during X-Mas week.
    Have the semifinals during New Year's.
    Have the championship the next week.

    If college basketball can have a three-week tournament mid-semester (or during winter finals for those on the quarter system, like UCLA), why can't college football have one during break?

    Why not just scrap the "regular season" and have one giant national tournament, last team standing is the champion?

    Either that or go all out - stop keeping score during the games, and at the end, have the coaches vote for who they think the winner is.
    College athletes in basketball, tennis, volleyball, spelling bees, and yes .... division II football all have playoffs. They are not students? It's a dead arguement IMHO

    I couldn't give two flying craps about college sports... much less college football.
    Seriously, "college" football is the NFL minor league and pretending that these people are "students" is assinine.

    That said, a playoff is the only way to go. I cannot respect a system that denies an unbeaten team in the same division/conference/whatever you call it... an opportunity to play for the championship. Go Hawaii... you guys got robbed.

    FTFY

    I could be wrong, but I don't believe the Boston Tea Party had a corporate sponsor.

    We now return you to your regularly scheduled pissing contest over college football playoffs that was already in progress.

    You want to compare the founding fathers fighting for freedom to a bunch of internet geeks that want change in a sport? OKAY [/sar]

    The bowls will never go away but using the bowls and then having a plus one game after the bowls pitting the top two teams in the nation would be the closest thing we could get. I see it breaking down like this...

    The four BCS bowls are used in kind of the same manner they are now and all played by the end of New Years day. Pitting the best of the best against each other. Then one week after that they hold hold the Championship game with 1 vs. 2 for all the marbles and the crystal football.

    A couple other changes would have to be made along the way as well, the coaches poll is a joke and when those picks are made public the self serving nature of it is almost as bad as if I would have put myself in the running for Mr. LGK.

    The would also have to cut the number of games down by one so that the university's won't go crying about the "student athlete's" being out of class to long. Of course these same university's don't mind cashing the checks the football department brings in for them. Basically each team has to schedule one less cookie early in the season... and there should be a penalty for that. The greatest thing I ever heard was when Michigan lost to App. State, they should have never even been playing a lower tier opponent so they got what they deserved.

    Also, anyone that loses more than 1 game should never.... EVERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR be allowed to play for the national championship.

    Just saying.
