As the college football season is nearing its end the controversy is in the air yet again about whether or not a playoff system should be implemented. This year there were many top tier teams worthy of contending for the national championship. The two mighty BCS schools competing for the title are Alabama and Texas. But there are still 3 other unbeatens left including Cincinnati, TCU, and Boise St. I find it unfair that those teams do not have the opportunity to compete for the national title. If an eight team playoff system was ineffect there would be no arguing about "co national champions" in the case in which there are two undefeated teams left at the end of a season which is a guarantee this year. An eight team playoff system this season would include: Alabama, Texas, TCU, Boise, Cincinnati, Florida and 2 out of the following 3 (Penn St, Ohio St, and Oregon). I feel this would offer a more entertaining and fair way to determine a champion. Especially since usually these teams do not meet in the regular season. Similar to March Madness in college basketball, which is one of the most watched events in the country. Many people involved with the BCS are not willing to change but as congress is trying to pass legislation pushing some sort of playoff bracket I feel that in the near future the days of the BCS will be eliminated and justice will be brought.
