The “green” solution to the BCS – Hybrid playoff system

I recently did a speech for a school project & I felt that I should post it on the site as well.  Essentially, it details my solution to the current BCS system.  Here’s the video:

Summary of the video:

  • The top 16 teams in the final BCS ranking qualify for a 16-team tournament at the end of the season.
  • If a conference champion is not in the top 16, that team automatically replaces the number 16 team in the playoff.  Example:  South Carolina is the number 16th ranked team according the final BCS rankings.  However, Missouri wins the Big XII championship and is only ranked 20th according to the BCS rankings.  Being that Missouri is a BCS conference team & won its conference title, Missouri will replace South Carolina in the tournament.
  • A 16 team tournament would require 4 games to determine the national champion.  Most teams play a 4 game non-conference schedule.  With this plan, all teams would throw out their non-conference schedule and play only conference games in order to allow time for a 4 game tournament.

What are your thoughts about this hybrid system?  Throw me a comment!

  1. OMG! That would be the worlds greatest sporting event! That said, it should Guarantee 4 SEC teams by contract!
