A College Football Playoff System Has Been Approved

For decades college football fans have been screaming for a playoff system when it comes to crowning an NCAA National Champion. Well it appears that the dream of a playoff system has become reality. A committee of university presidents on Tuesday approved the BCS commissioners’ plan for a four-team playoff to start in the 2014 season.The process of creating a playoff system has been in the works for nearly six months now, and we now finally have a playoff system to crown a National Champion. Instead of simply matching the No. 1 and No. 2 teams in the country in a championship game after the regular season, the way the Bowl Championship Series has done since 1998, the new format will create a pair of national semifinals. No. 1 will play No. 4, No. 2 will play No. 3 in the first round. The winners of the first two games will then advance the national championship game.

Like you, I too ask…Why did it take so long to come up with what seems such a simple system? But again I know that there are lots of sponsorships, i.e. lots of money, involved here and the NCAA will likely do whats best for “business.” The teams will be selected by a committee, similar to the way the NCAA basketball tournament field is set.

In any case, I applaud the NCAA and it’s committee for recognizing that there was a problem with determining a “true national champion” in NCAA college football. For once, it now seems fair for the four best teams in the country to compete for the crystal trophy at the end of the regular football season.
