    As some of these questions will be obsolete by this time next week, this is a chance to state opinions before they are decided.

    Conference championship games need to take place by the last Saturday in November.

    The top 16 teams in the BCS play at the home field of the top 8 teams on the first Saturday in December - 1 vs. 16, 2 vs. 15, etc.

    The 8 winners fill the 4 BCS bowls. The other 8 go to bowl games as they do now.

    Therefore, the current bowl structure is untouched.

    The winners of the 4 BCS bowls on New Year's Day then play with the higher seeded teams playing at home.

    The two winners then meet at a neutral stadium for the national championship(maybe the Super Dome).

    Looks almost like an NFL solution and I agree. Your eight top teams, regardless of conference play in the four bowls. With semi and championship (super bowl) the next two weeks.

    I'd have the season BEGIN LATER and last game for ALL teams on Dec 3. Then top 2 in a conference (east/west) play for conference title on Dec 10. Then only 3 weeks until the bowl games and probably the conference champs would be in them.

    Over (semis on Jan 8, final on Jan 15) prior to the NFL championship (Jan 22) and superbowl (Jan 29) so no conflict.

    One more thought. LIMIT the 8 teams to a shorter "spring" season the following spring, since they will have had lots of extra practices for the Bowls and playoff.

    Let the other 120 Div I schools have a coupla more weeks to bring parity.

    I say give them all the same amount of time. I don't think good teams should be punished for being good.

    Ken

    Your proposal makes too much sense - it will never be adopted!

    I got the idea from Rick Schaeffer on Drive Time Sports here in Arkansas.

    The NCAA would make bunches of money on this type of setup. The conference championship games can continue. The bowl games can continue. Two teams would play one game after the normal bowl season and two teams would play two games after the normal bowl season; so it doesn't hurt class time for the rest of the teams in Division I.

    I think the only reason we don't have a playoff system like this is that the college presidents know they have the power to say no and so they want to continue to say no, regardless of the benefits of such a system.

    I like the proposal. I would still have some sort of post season exhibition games outside of the BCS structure, just for "fun."

    The kudos for Ken's proposal are coming from all the southerners who wouldn't have far to travel, or much expense, for their teams or personally. The nature of the football season, puts northern teams at a disadvantage. Ok, put away your violins, but it is suppose to be college boys playing a game, it doesn't have to be this gigantic playoff system.

    Methinks there may be some fear that the North would NEVER have a national champion again if the playoff system were instituted ;) .

    "The nature of the football season, puts northern teams at a disadvantage. "

    Is that true with Division 1AA, II, and III? With the NFL?
