This way it would be just like the NFL, you have your regular season games, then the playoffs start the week after the regular season ends, and only #1 and #2 get a 1st round bye. Then it just reduces by half every week until the Championship Game the 1st week of January.

      That way you have football going until the end of the year, but it doesn't extend past the 1st week of January, that way you aren't compromising students study time in the next semester, but you dont have a 2-3 week gap between the Conference Championship Games and the Bowl Games that you have now.
      Makes sense... I don't know why they think it wouldn't work. 30 teams would take no time to get through. Sure there would be a lot of games... but you could stagger them like they do. And there are already a ton of college games to sift through on Saturdays anyway... so it's not like 15 games for round one would be a lot.

      actually we'd need 32 teams to make the playoffs even.

      THE WAR IN DECEMBER
      (you know, basketball has the March Madness)

      the JUGGERNAUT round: 32 TEAMS

      16 Games to decide who advances... to

      the COLOSSAL round: 16 TEAMS

      8 Games to decide who advances... to

      the ARMAGEDDON round: 8 TEAMS

      4 Games to decide who advances... to

      the GRIDIRON round: 4 TEAMS

      2 Games to decide who advances... to

      the NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP: 2 TEAMS

      1 Game to decide who is crowned the NCAA Division I-A National Champion!

        No 30 teams would still be even.

          Alright I think I figured it out. The teams may still be a little... iffy. But I narrowed it down to 10 conferences, each containing 12 teams and 2 divisions.

          This's gonna be awesome I'm gonna make a new thread. I think I'll actually incorporate the 30 team idea instead of 32 because I have a great way to do it.

            looks like this may be gaining some steam.

            WASHINGTON -- Taking aim at a BCS system he said "consistently misfires," a member of Congress planned to introduce legislation Wednesday that would force college football to adopt a playoff to determine the national champion.

            Rep. Joe Barton of Texas, the ranking Republican on the House Energy and Commerce Committee, didn't specify what sort of playoff he wants -- only that the BCS should go.

            "In some years the sport's national championship winner was left unsettled, and at least one school was left out of the many millions of dollars in revenue that accompany the title," Barton said in a statement released ahead of the bill's introduction. "Despite repeated efforts to improve the system, the controversy rages on."

            He said the bill -- being co-sponsored by Reps. Bobby Rush, an Illinois Democrat, and Michael McCaul, a Texas Republican -- "will prohibit the marketing, promotion, and advertising of a postseason game as a 'national championship' football game, unless it is the result of a playoff system. Violations of the prohibition will be treated as violations of the Federal Trade Commission Act as an unfair or deceptive act or practice."

            The BCS was created in 1998 by the six most powerful conferences. Since then, the system has been tweaked to make it easier for teams from smaller conferences to qualify for the top games. The sites for the four BCS bowls -- the Rose, Orange, Sugar and Fiesta -- take turns hosting a championship game between the top two teams in the BCS standings, which are based on two human polls and six computer ratings.

            This season, Florida (12-1) and Oklahoma (12-1) will meet in the BCS title game Jan. 8 in Miami.

            Barton cited Southern California in 2003 and undefeated Auburn in 2004 as examples of worthy teams left out of the BCS national championship game.

            "This year, we again have two teams with one loss each playing for the 'championship,' while two undefeated teams and four additional teams with only one loss will play in bowl games, but none can become 'champion,'" he said.

            When an Energy and Commerce subcommittee held a hearing about the BCS in 2005, lawmakers said they weren't going to pursue legislation.

            "The BCS method of determining who is No. 1 consistently misfires," Barton said Wednesday. "Simply exposing the flaws and subjecting them to discussion ... hasn't led to improvement by those who run the system."
