    (And this isn't a Vick thread, BTW....)

    Suppose we had a four-team playoff for the national championship. Ohio State is in. Michigan is in. Florida is in.

    But which team gets lucky spot No. 4?

    --LSU? Nope, didn't make its conference championship game (but would have a good argument).

    --Wisconsin? Nope, not with the BCS' two-school-per-conference limit.

    --USC? Nope, not with two losses.

    --What does that leave us with? Boise State?

    if lsu is disqualified for not making its conference championship game, why does michigan get in for finishing second in its conference that doesn't have a round-robin or a championship game?

    so, i think we're left with ohio state, florida, boise state and WHO?

    Twenty-four teams (that way nobody can complain they were unfairly left out). And no bowls. Play games at home sites except for the championship game, which can rotate among the old BCS sites.

    Wake Forest!!

    Seriously though, I'd go with Louisville. Big East Champ, or Oklahoma, Big 12.

    This is what makes me so flabbergasted about this joke that is minor league football... why is no one giving Louisville credit? One loss & won the conference just like Florida.

    LSU finished THIRD in the SEC West. Tigers deserve the Poulan Weedeater Bowl.

    24 teams? Why play a regular season?

    8 teams will work: 6 BCS league champs, 2 at-large.

    Auburn beat LSU head to head.

    3rd place in the West.

    Exactly. Just keep it short and sweet.

    Oh, I'm not arguing with the standings, I'm just saying that LSU deserves more than the Weedeater Bowl. The consensus is they're the second-best team in the SEC, despite what the standings say.

    Not fair to the Boise States, Wisconsins and Arkansases of the world, given that one of the at-larges will almost always go to a none-too-deserving Notre Dame side just because it's Notre Dame. And the MAC can produce a team or two which could make a legitimate run to the quarterfinals every so often. The BCS leagues ain't all they're cracked up to be --- see also this year's ACC.

    It needs to be bigger than the playoffs for the lower divisions. Besides, I can easily picture a scenario in which a "ninth-best" or lower team gets a nice December run going --- a team like Rutgers could fill that bill very nicely.
