no doubt....but i'd just like to see at least 1 representative from each major conference. who or how would the top 4 be chosen? the only fair way would be a point system based on strength of schedule.at least with the winner of each conference its clear cut on who makes it and who don't. you either win your conference....or STFU and go home. as i said before...the conferences should be realigned, to make them all competitive.

The BCS does take several things into account, included several different computer rankings. I'd accept their top 4 at face value.

considering the "computer rankings" is what the contoversey is all about to begin with, i only see extending it to 4 ,only slightly legitamizes the champ.as you said in one of your early post......5 thru 8 is now the one's that'll be " the squeeky wheels" ..the computer ranking system needs to be scraped alltogether....IMO.

Right now we take 2 and #3 gets mad. If we took 4 then #5 would get mad. If we took 8 then #9 would get mad.

But a 4 or 8 team playoff would still be better. I can't see an undefeated team being 9th so you can always tell #9 it's their own fault for losing to _______.

Oh, that would work too...I'm just saying how a 4 team playoff would work.

I like the idea of every conference champion getting in. Ideally you'd have the 11 champs and one wild card.

That was their own fault. The SEC wasn't THAT great that year, and Auburn played a particularly weak (even by SEC standards) ooc schedule. They reaped what they sowed...

OOC in 04:
LA Tech
LA Monroe
Citadel
