The Big Ten is not only ready to listen to proposals regarding a national four-team football playoff, league and school officials are kicking around an intriguing idea.
"Put your mother in a straight-jacket you punk ass white boy." ~ Mike Tyson
"Sources told the Tribune that a Big Ten plan would remove the top four teams from the BCS bowl pool and have semifinal games played on the college campus of the higher seed. That would do away with the facade of “neutral” sites such as New Orleans, Miami and Pasadena, Calif., and ease travel concern for fans.
The championship game then could be bid out, like the Super Bowl."
That'd be boner jams all over the place. It'd be the hypest moment of my nonhype life.
Need 8 teams. No auto bids.
A good start
If they institute a 4 team playoff, you have to believe that it will eventually expand to 8. Other schools/conferences are going to want in on the action.
Agreed. Top 4 seeds at home. Semi-finals, the same way. Nat'l championship game at site to bid out.
My plan for this would be winners of the top 8 bowls play in he playoff. Extends the season 3 weeks which isn't that intrusive to the student athlete's class schedule, especially since it would be just the start of a semester and not like it's mid-terms or finals.
RANT WARNING! No SEC friendly sites for NC game for 10 years minimum, dammit! They've had home field throughout the majority of the BCS reign. Let 'em go on the road for a while.
FREE YOUR BREASTS! FREE YOUR MIND!
So we play at the higher rated teams campus, and due to the fact that BCS rankings are horseshit, we just stop pretended they are neutral sites because we would actually be playing the SEC in their house, as they will still be ranked higher due to unproven SOS beliefs regarding their conference. It's a move in the right direction and all, but I want to see it chosen by committee like the basketball tourney.
Yep. Certainly better than what we currently have. It's not about perfection, it's about improvement.
Imagine an SEC team coming north for a playoff game in December/January. That would be awesome.

Your thoughts are understandable. In your situation however, what's to prevent SEC bias in the committee? It's not like the BB committee hasn't demonstrated an ACC or Big East bias in the past. The same could come true in FB.
