Volsman182's Playoff Model....
December Madness

As I eluded to in my last blog, I have given a lot of thought to a Division 1A College Football playoff and I came up with this model a few years ago. It isn't very complicated and wouldn't be that hard for the NCAA to pull off.

Conference champions get an automatic bid. Even champions of the mid-majors would get a bid. Currently there are 11 conferences in major college football.

That leaves room for 5 at large teams in a 16 team model.

In order to determine seeding and at large births, a ranking system, similar to the BCS ranking could be implemented.

The higher seed gets home field advantage until the semifinals.

Three major bowls will rotate the championship game. The two not hosting the championship would each host a semifinal game. I would prefer to see the Rose,Orange, and Sugar Bowls as the rotators.

The playoff would begin the week following Championship Saturday.

Most bowls could be retained for teams who did not make the playoff but still had a winning record.

This is how the bracket would have looked following Championship Saturday according to last year's BCS rankings.

at Tuscaloosa
16) Troy

8)Ohio State
at Columbus
9)Georgia Tech

at Gainesville

at Fort Worth
13)Penn State

6)Boise State
at Boise
11)Virginia Tech

at Cincinnati
14)Central Michigan

at Eugene

at Austin
15)East Carolina

December Madness would be the best sporting event this country has to offer hands down. How much fun would this be?

I know we are a long way away from this, if it ever happens at all. This will just give you something to think about. We are all left to wonder why college football insists on holding on to the archaic bowl system. Until we get a playoff, we can look at this model and get a sparkle in our eye thinking about how magnificent it would be.
