Good god almighty......from your article:
Sources told ESPN.com that under the recommended model, four participating teams would be selected by a committee, which would consider certain criteria such as conference championships and strength of schedule.
Are you freaking kidding me?
Seriously.....why not settle this on the field. No chance for favoritism, corruption, or scandal here, is there?
Under my model.....great regular season + conference championship = entrance into playoff.
Under the model they are making......committee comes together to pick four teams that will give them the best TV ratings. College football is going to be ruined if that happens.
