    Because I'll have to include ND, even though I don't want to, here's how I get around it.

    It's now all the teams from before and the top two teams from the BCS rankings. That gives us eight teams, gives Notre Dame and conference losers a shot, and eliminates byes.

    1 vs. 8: Big Ten champion (Ohio State) vs. ACC champion (GT/BC)
    2 vs. 7: Runner-up 1 (Michigan) vs. Big 12 champion (Texas)
    3 vs. 6: Pac-10 champion (Southern Cal) vs. Runner-up 2 (Florida)
    4 vs. 5: Big East champion (West Virginia) vs. SEC champion (Auburn)

    So I guess you don't like the way the NCAA conducts its basketball tournament. Too many non-champions in that bracket.

    I'll gladly endorse a basketball-style playoff ... as soon as football teams begin playing 40-game regular seasons.

    I'd be assuming a big Texas win in the Big 12 title game, which might not happen at all. They'd be the longest shot of the possibilities. I don't see any way the BCS could bypass an undefeated BCS conference champion in favor of a one-loss team. They'd be pretty much forced to throw the Big East out of their cartel if they did that.

    Unlike that wild-eyed maniac Tressel. I heard he pulled the tassles off his loafers last week. ::)

    Thank you mustard. I was wondering the same damn thing. One of these years we're going to three or four undefeated teams (I'm sure, in the workings of the cosmos, there actually could be a season when schedules coincide just enough to allow it).
