If there was, I think it would be the top 4.
No way you let an 8 seed compete for the title.
Makes it more exclusive.

If you included 4 teams, then the 5 and 6 teams would complain. If you included 8, then the 9 and 10 teams will complain. The teams left out will still complain about the rankings, but at least this way we'd get a better opportunity to see the teams we KNOW are the best compete.

Every year I create my own "Championship Series" and I make it 16 teams. Ten auto bids to the ACC, Big East, Big 10, Big 12, Pac-10, SEC, WAC, MWC, Conf-USA and MAC champions (One disqualifying factor is no Conf-USA, WAC, MWC or MAC champion can get in with 3 losses or more unless they are in the top 20 in the BCS standings ... that would DQ this years MAC champ and Conf. USA champ) and then there is 6 at-large (this year 8).
So my series would be four weeks long and 16 teams wide ... which I think would be great.
Although, no matter how we did it ... I think Ohio St. would take it all this year.

And I don't think you could do it w/out 20 or 24 teams, where either the top 4 or top 8 get byes the first week.

Eliminate the bowls, start in early December and you end right around New Year's Day.

I dont think we would every see a playoff in D-1. There are way to many politics involved.

True. I am so that the Big name conferences (Big Ten, SEC, and PAC-10) would have a hissy fit, if a playoff format was ever created. Sure, all coaches say that they are in favor of a playoff system, but they know that they don't have the power to really go for a playoff system, that is up to the AD and the school.

Let OSU be left out of the top 4 for a decade or so...I will bet that you change your tune!

8 super-conferences...you don't win your conference, you don't get in...that is just the way it should go!
