    If they were to do a playoffs, I'd do it this way: to keep the first round bowls entertaining:
    New Year's week (12/29-1/1)
    RoseBowl: Big Ten Champs v Pac Ten Champs
    SugarBowl: SEC Champs vs At Large #1
    OrangeBowl:Big East vs ACC
    FiestaBowl: Big 12 Champs vs At Large #2

    Week After -(Sun Night / Mon Night following week)
    Rose vs Fiesta (location rotates every yr)
    Orange vs Sugar (location rotates every yr)
    A major concern here is how to do the logistics for this game. We're talking about college football fans here, they'll go anywhere whenever to see their teams play. If the locations and weeks are consistent, I'm sure they'll figure it out.

    2 weeks After Rd 2 (Superbowl off week Sunday @ 3pm)
    Champ game (rotation every 4 years)

    ----------
    The 4 bowls actually mean something, especially the Rose and Orange. The At-Large teams won't always be the #7 and #8 teams in the nation, they could be runner ups in a good conference ( see Georgia).

    But the #1 and #2 teams in the nation might play in Rd 1. It *might* happen, but that just means we'll see a great game during the first week too. People will question that #1 seed if they don't win the big game, much like Ohio St. keeps not earning their BCS seeding.

    If this season was re-seeded to my suggestion it would have been:

    USC v Ohio St
    LSU vs Hawaii
    West V vs VTech
    Oklahoma St vs Georgia

    Regardless of whoever won the games, the champion of that tourney would be very legitimate.

    Illinois beat LSU. USC beat Illinois. LSU didn't beat USC.
    USC are national champs. Where's the controversy?




    Seriously though, I'm with seraphim.

    It works better in the Politics forum.

    Seems a little unfair to me that the players on the best teams in the country (many of them 1st round picks to be) should play an extra 1, 2, or even 3 games against extremely difficult and physical opponents (cream of the crop teams) and risk injury and draft position when they aren't getting paid a single dime of the massive revenue these games would take in.

    They're always welcome to try and show their talents on their own network if they don't want that sort of worry. Besides, if they do get injured, they can always fall back on the degree they get. Isn't that what college is for?

    In an 11-game season with an 8-team playoff, the maximum games played would be 14 games (15 if the conf. title games stick around). Some teams already play 14 games with their conference championship anyway.
