I'm no fan of the playoff system, but. . .
take the champs of the top 7 conferences and have one at large (so Notre Dame can go when they are 6-5) and let those guys play off during the bowl season.
Oh yeah, my prediction was correct, but points weren't. Take away two major special teams errors and it wasn't even close.
Oh well, TCU is young. Maybe they'll tease us next year.
One more question, how does this affect the TCU / MWC talk?
Hah, well, yeah...
I must be the master of the jinx post.
Why don't they just do this to alleviate all the BCS "who can get in and who can't" garbage: Take the top 6 ranked conference champions (counting all "independents" as one conference) instead of 6 specific champions, and then the two highest at-large teams? Wouldn't that take care of problems like this year almost was (had TCU won out, but we can thank the Golden Eagles for making this point moot this year)?
More importantly (and to keep this topic relevant on the realignment board), what impact would this change have on conference realignments for football reasons? Any at all? Would it calm down or pick up?
