Playoff system in NCAA Football

Postby mizery24 on Wed Nov 22, 2006 9:30 pm

It is time for a playoff system in college football. I'm tired of some team getting screwed out of a chance at National Title Game. I don't want to see Michigan get beat again. Let another team have a shot at it. The SEC beats up on each other all year long. Who has Michigan and Ohio State played? Each other. Who has USC played? We need to settle it on the field not by some sports writers who have never played football.

i completely agree. the BCS is a load of bull used to get teams with a larger market a guarantee at the Championship game. notice how ALWAYS USC makes it to this......they aren't that good....and yet Florida won't, Arkansas won't, not even Notre Dame will get a shot....because a computer decides that Michigan is better.....whatever!!!!



why is March Madness so great?!? because we don't know who will win everygame!!!!

Michigan is better and that was a great game of football.

We lost by three, it's not like we got blown out.

And we blew out Notre Dame so why should they get a shot?

How is Michigan better than Florida, Arkansas, or LSU? We won't know because we have no playoff system.

USC is there every year because somehow they've convinced ESPN and other sports news writers that they have a dynasty in progress. Now excuse me, but shouldn't a dynasty win more than just one national championship? USC, like Notre Dame, is consistently overrated every friggin' year and it pisses me off. Hell, ND has to lose 5 games before being booted out of the Top 25 for cryin' out loud.

We can sit and argue the point who has the better team ("X beat Y which beat Z therefore X would beat Z" -- uh, NO) but it will never be resolved until Division IA adopts a playoff system like there is for every other collegiate sport, INCLUDING Division IAA FOOTBALL (go App State!!).

And if Michigan gets another shot at Ohio State for the NC, well, that's just plain wrong. They had their shot. They blew it. Let another 1-loss team have a shot. Just as long as it's not USC or Notre Dame. :evil:

i agree there should be playoffs in college football. they should set it up like highschool football with division playoffs then championship playoffs not who the coaches think should play. the way it is now it doesnt matter how good the team is its how much the coaches and the media like the schools. notre dame is a good example. they are always rated high but dont play as good as they are ranked. the last 2 games i watched notre dame play i was not impressed at all with them. i am from texas and i think that the longhorns are overrated as well. now they have had some good teams but not always. i think they got lucky when they won the championship last year. if it wasnt for thier quarterback and some bad calls by the ref's they would have lost that game.

I see that somebody voted "No" in this poll. Care to explain your reasoning?

think about it guys.....

in last years March Madness, a computer didnt decide that George Mason would go to the Final Four, they did!!! what's better than watching upset after upset every day for weeks??? it's awesome, not to mention every game counts, unlike how they screwed up the bowls.


for all of you who forgot.....THE ROSE BOWL IS THE BEST OF THE PAC-10 VS. THE BEST OF THE BIG 10!!!!!!!!!!! keep it that way, and have a playoff system that actually counts for the winner, and after, we can have our classic bowl games!!!!

No, I believe the mental midget was directing that to me. Isn't it admirable how he attempts to string together a coherent thought?

I realize the Rose traditionally pairs Big 10 vs. Pac 10. My point was that this year that might *not* be the case as the article expained. Should LSU beat Ar-Kansas tomorrow, LSU might get an invite to play in the Rose. Personally, I'd love to see my Tigers against the Condoms in the Rose. And yes, a tournament is long-overdue but probably won't happen because there's too much money to be made with the bowl games in their present form.

oh, so that's what you meant...what i meant was that i hate how they ruin bowl games with history, by destroying their meaning. the Rose Bowl hasn't served its original duty in YEARS!!!!
