This is what it could look like. No conference championship games. Feel free to give you utopias format as well.
Note: For selection reasons, I assume FSU and Clemson win at the moment, as well as the other favorites this weekend.
With no conference limit of teams:
1) Notre Dame
16) Arkansas St
8) Texas A&M
9) Florida St
5) Kansas St
12) Boise St
13) Kent St
14) Utah St
With a 2 team per conference limit:
5) Kansas St
12) Boise St
7) Florida St
Looks like another LSU vs Bama game
They should take the top 16 in the BCS regardless of conference affiliation and championships. This is fair because any undefeated (an even some 1-loss) MAC/MWC/CUSA team would get into the top 16
1) Notre Dame
9) Texas A&M
12) South Carolina
6) Kansas St
10) Florida State
15) Oregon State
These matchups would be so awesome to watch

Great matchups ans some serious $$$$ and ratings...
Best two teams and best two coaches on America.
Hate to admit it but your correct. F ing Mett waited to long to start playing
Once they go to an 8 or 16 team playoff, i think they need to lose the preseason polls too. Maybe they can have a projected poll so to speak, but the meaningfull poll should start at like week 3 or 4 IMO.
a) "two teams per conference" limit is a laughable farce.
if a "fair for all" 16 team playoff format were implemented....
* go back to an 11 game regular season slate (deleting one patsie for all)
* keep all Conf Title games ( money & chance of a Cindarella bubble buster)
** every Conf Champ that finishes among the Top 20(or Top 25) gets an auto-in
** highest ranked non-Conf Champs complete the 16 team field
*** seeded 1-16 by the final BCS Poll / high seeds play "HOME" games in round 1
*** rnd 2, Final 4 , & NCG use current Bowl rotation system to host games but add domed sites Cotton(Dallas),Chick-Fil-A(Atlanta),&LC Pizza(Detroit) to the frey.
>> delete all small Bowls that have duplicate city sites (i.e. New Orleans Bowl). they're overkill to begin with.
# Hawaii hosts top two ranked teams that miss the cut (bubble) each year.
# other Bowls continue but now select the highest ranked teams available vs current pathetic Conf tie-ins resulting in better match ups
@ note: to really spark things up, delete the rnd 1 "Home site" system & allow the small Bowls (24 of them - Hawaii) to host the 1st round on a 3 year rotation. thus allowing the
the off playoff year rotation Bowls (16) to host better quality teams (#19 thru...) in lieu of trash tie-in games played today.
@ note 2: a Conf Champ that isnt ranked among te Top 20(or 25) isnt NC worthy so suck it.
just so you know that if "every favorite" won this weekend.... Notre DAME wouldnt be #1
USC -5 1/2
You've got that backwards. Notre Dame is favored.
the current system has had only a handfull of hopefull's for past several weeks. a true playoff format would still have these games & more on tap.
Stll with hope...
* K-State / Texas (Horns cant afford another lose)
* Clemson / USC (loser could end up in Hawaii)
* Stanford / UCLA ( bubble buster for loser ?)
* Rutgers / L'Ville (win or go home)
* Kent State vs the field (need Top 20 finish)
basically #12 and below have hope but must win.
correct a mundo
whatcha think about my sweet 16 format ?
Arky would have been left out last year in such a scenario & they would have likely won any Conference other than the SEC a season ago.
I don't hate it.
I do think that one of 2 things need to happen. Either we get some uniformity in scheduling nationwide or a limit should be put on the number of teams from a conference. Regardless of what you may want, a plan would have to be agreed on for one thing and in the current state, I doubt anyone is going to go for a plan that could put 4 or 5 SEC teams in. Honestly, I would rather not see a bunch of games in the playoff scenario that we see constantly either.
To your point on Arkansas: maybe they could have won some other conferences last season, but they got absolutely murdered by both Alabama and LSU.
yet beat the Big12's 2nd best in a Bowl & imo would have also beaten #1 wantabe Okie Lite as well.
my point reguardless on Conference, the best teams should play.
i'm all for Cinderella's shot but a Conf Champ from a weak Conf is nothing more than a weak Conf Champ.
guidelines ? win your Conference, make the final Top 20 or 25 or put on your regular (non-playoff) Bowling shoes.
note: keep in mind w/ a 16 team field, no (2 or 3 loss) team missing the bubble has anyone to blame but themselves.
no matter S.O.S., it would be the 2 or 3 losses which put them on the bubble to begin with.
No polls until every team has played a conference game.
a^m has a very favorable bracket
Most Saturdays I watch the full Gamecocks game and then a quarter or half of a few other games.
In this scenario I would be glued to the television from opening kickoff of the first game until double zeros of the last game. Would bring in multiple tvs if they had more than one game going on at a time.
Hopefully they at least expand it to 8 teams shortly after the 4 team experiment.
while i like my Conf Champ (potential Cinderella & bracket busters) if among the Top 20/25 model in a 16 team format....
the Top 8 is more than enough & there is an easy answer to 9's & 10's being left out, dont lose.
on a side note this year would be more or less "The SEC Open".
as is the ND/USC & SECCG are the keys going into this weekend but w/ 8 ....
Stanford / UCLA
Fla / FSU
S.Car / Clemson
K-State / Texas
and others would actually have meaning .
Oregon v. Texas A&M and
Alabama v. Georgia
is your final four
Alabama v. Texas A&M is your national championship
If FSU wins Saturday no effing way they are a 9/10 seed. They would be like 5
Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or it may last a year. But eventually, it will subside. If i quit, however it will last forever.
time to get the xbox out and see who wins
PositivePete- Dasshatriggeman is a bama plant on this site. His dugie houser underling always up votes him.
who the hell wants a 16 team playoff?
no reason for arky st, kent st, boise st, rutgers, utah st, tulsa, nebraska to even sniff the playoff
$50 bet with Rebels10 - Best of 3 Egg Bowls
**the $50 goes to others schools athletics dept**
that's right, it's not fair for a team like Clemson to miss out because of this crap
