Should the BCS system used in college footbal be replaced by playoffs?

  • Equality in National Championship Game

    In the current BCS system there is no way possible to be able to narrow out without it being lopsided or in favor of the bigger and badder teams like Alabama and Notre Dame who could really fight in the national championship game every single year the way the BCS works

  • Yes yes yes

  • Enough said people

    Enough said people.

    In the BCS level of college football, nobody can ever be certain who the champion is. There is zero way of knowing who a true champion is without playing a playoff. College Football is literally the only sport that outsource their way of declaring a champion to a third party. It is unfair to smaller schools with less exposure, punishes late losses far more than an early loss in the season, and favors traditional powers far more than an up and coming team. I simply do not understand the logic behind using a computer system to determine who wins college football. I know that the real logic behind it is so that the Bowl system, and the money it generates for both college football and advertisers, can be maintained. Despite all of this, a playoff system is a much more believable and viable way for a champion to be crowned. The current BCS and bowl system is clearly not designed to name an actual national champion, but rather to generate money and buzz for the colleges and TV networks. The selection process is rather arbitrary. A real playoff system would add 1 or 2 games to the season for competing teams, and would, once and for all, determine which team is best that year.

  • Yes, there should be a clear winner.

    Yes, the BCS system used in college football today should be replaced by the playoffs, because right now, there is no way to determine who the clear winner is. Every player and every fan wants to know who is the best in the end. The way to determine that is to have true playoffs.

  • Both Division II and III have a national playoff.

    FBS schools should add a playoff to enhance the excitement of the post-season. Bowl games often have predictable match-ups. If there was no NCAA tournament in college basketball, teams like Kentucky would play in the championship every year since all they would need a good regular season. If there were playoffs, teams like Alabama would still be perennial favorites, but would have to do it by knocking off other great teams from other great conferences. Also, one loss would not be as devestating to a team's national title hopes as it is in the current BCS system.

  • Yes, but it must be student athlete first, academic friendly, fair to all schools and reformed to make it equal for every conference.

    If the old BCS organization takes over then nothing will change and it will fail. The schools through the NCAA must own and operate the Playoff. The BCS proposed Committee of 16 with its computer ranking and poll must not happen. The Playoff should be built on top of a total reorganization of Major College Football that reduces the number of teams to 120 while dividing them into 12 conferences of 10 teams drawn evenly from all strengths of current programs. Then each champion will earn their place on the field of play along with the 4 second place teams with the best records. 16 teams will mean that every possible candidate for best time will be included. Then too every team will have to win 4 games to be champion, no bye week and 3 win team as champion. The best 2 will truly be in the championship game and every game in the regular season will have to count to get into the playoff.

  • The current BCS system should be replaced by a playoff system to enable schools to compete on equal footing.

    The current BCS system does not fairly reflect each school's abilities or strength of schedule. Instead, by granting bowl appearances or championships based on the BCS system, many schools are rewarded by creating weaker schedules than those without a large support base. Moving to a playoff system would enable all eligible schools to compete equally.

  • No, playoff systems aren't right for college football, because it would require too many games.

    Critics of the Bowl Championship Series need to keep something very important in mind: the players in BCS games are all college students. Every approach to date to establish the number one college football team each season has found a fresh batch of critics. The favored alternative to the BCS appears to be a playoff system. That solution is not workable for the students, because even a playoff series limited to a pool of 16 teams would mean up to four post-season games. The playoff system in college basketball is much lengthier than that, but basketball involves far fewer players per team than football does, and has much less violent body contact. Football teams need longer recovery times than basketball teams do between games. Failure to allow adequate recovery would mean much greater risk of permanent injuries. A playoff system also will not end debate over which team is best. There would be a playoff champion crowned, but the BCS system already does that. Furthermore, some lucky wins by underdogs in a playoff system could result in a champion who never had to face another high-ranked team.

    I feel that the BCS system should keep the bowl games just the way they are and not do a traditional playoff system. The bowl games at the end of the year are really exciting the way they are. It is great that many teams get to be honored to be in a bowl game. I would just stop any additional bowl games from being created though, because it would take away from the honor.

  • The BCS system stay, but it should be combined with a post season 8 team playoff.

    The top 8 teams ranked in the BCS standings at the end of the season should play each other. The season should be cut back to 10 games instead of 12 games. The post playoff season will last 3 weeks. The top 8 teams should be undefeated or with just one loss. Think 8 team playoff will solve most of the problems the NCAA will face.

  • BCS should stay the same

    It should stay because the number 1 and number 2 teams worked really hard to get to that position and then a number 3 and number 4 team are going to come in and ruin their chances of winning. They are also going to put them in equal chances and that is just going to be even worse.
