It'd be nice if the BCS could even give us a four-game baby playoff with their fifth game.

Also, with the new I-A Attendance rules, a number of bowls could go belly up if I-A were to lose a few teams.

Even a 3 game playoff would be great:

Use BCS/Committee to decide 1-4.

Use a rotation for the games.

Example: Sugar Bowl = 2 vs 3, Orange = 1 vs 4

A week later have the winners play in a bowl, for the above example, say, Rose Bowl. Rotate the 3 games each year.

I suspect the bowl system will break, but they actually had a good year this year. The Rose got a hit with Texas (even if they didn't want them), the Fiesta got a hit with Utah (even if they had to play Pitt) and the Sugar had an unbeaten SEC team. The Liberty got Louisville-Boise St., the Cotton got Texas A&M, the Outback got UGA-Wisconsin 2 schools that travel well as did the Citrus with IA-LSU. Even the tired bowl got a huge crowd for UNC-BC.

And the presidents are dead set on it.
