As I look to the future with a 4-team playoff I am hopeful it will be am improvement. However, I am not overly enthused with having a selection committee determining who makes the playoffs. I would like to see that decision largely made on the field. I would also like to see the regular season and conference championships matter still. I'd like to present an option that I think would not maintain conference and regular season importance, but also maintain traditional bowl tie-ins.
A 10-team playoff. Three play-in games for at large non-conference winners. B1G vs Pac-10 Rose Bowl every season. Let me know your thoughts
