NCAAF  > General NCAAF  > Why a playoff is not the perfect system as people report it being.
January 18, 2009, 03:08 PM
I have heard a lot of the playoff system is the solution. There are some faults with any playoff system, however. Here are some examples: Seeding - how will seeding be done? Using records would be unfair, as the schedules are different for different teams. Also, SOS is difficult to use, because SOS doesn't show how close a game against a "weak"opponent is. Conferences with Outright Champions - How will conferences solve a two way tie in an outright championshiop conference (OSU - PSU as the example here, were co-champs). Number of Teams - What is the perfect number of teams? I hear 8 a lot, but would 2 at large really be enough? And what would be too much? Game locations - Where would bowls be played? Playing in existing bowls would give a slight edge to teams in the south and west. Would bowls be built in the Northern US to balance out the location problem? These are just some of the problems that could occur with a playoff.
