BCS Commissioners and Notre Dame Athletic Director Jack Swarbrick met in Chicago Thursday to discuss the possibility of moving to a playoff format for college football in lieu of the current BCS system. You know, the system that is widely regarded as the biggest crock of shit in sports. Just ask Auburn fans how much they supported the BCS system in 2004 after going undefeated in the SEC and NOT receiving an invitation to the national championship game. Computers currently determine the invites for the natty.
“Considerable progress” are words being muttered after the conclusion of the meeting. The proposal included the BCS games remaining intact and serving as a four-team playoff derived of the top four seeded teams in the country. The seeds would be determined by record, strength of schedule, and conference championship games. The national championship would be held in the city with the highest bid. That’ll be some exciting shit by itself.
If this proposal is approved by the BCS presidential oversight committee during their meeting on June 26, the new playoff system will begin in 2014, leaving us only two more years in the current B
CS system. It’s almost here, guys. I can taste it. A true goddamn national champion. I’m not saying pop the champagne open yet, but I’d at least throw it on ice.
