A four-team playoff it is. What's your reaction?

I don't know for sure, but methinks as long as the ACC & the Big East aren't invited ESECPN will be kept happy and all will be well in Disney's World.GO BUCKS!

I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

I really liked the idea of schools hosting semi-final rounds ... once that dropped out of scope I'm sort of like BLAH.  Not crazy about the old system either although it benefitted Ohio State because our fan base is crazy large and that got us into games that maybe otherwise we wouldn't have made.

Home-site semifinals will happen, it's just a matter of time.  After the first few years and the honeymoon period wears off, people just aren't going to plunk down the money two times over to see this kind of a playoff.  Especially if we get something like a Boise/TCU matchup in Orlando.  2026 isn't that long to wait...

Well if my current dynasty in NCAA 2012 (and I'd like to think it does)  tells me anything its that by the year 2026, Michigan, USC, Texas, Oklahoma and Florida will have been reduced to laughable programs unable to fill their ridiculous stadiums and Ohio State will have won 11 titles from 2020-2045 while competing with NCAA powerhouses Air Force, UTEP, and Houston.
So there's that.

Do I come off as arrogant? Shame on me, I was hoping it would be more obvious.

Hey if its a good enough tool for Gameday to analyze upcoming matches, I'll take it as gospel.  :)

I think there will always be someone butthurt about CFB, now instead of #3 complaining, it will be #5. However I don't think If you are number 5 you should get to play for a title. JMO, I think this will satisfy us for a while. We will all be happy when Urban has us in the B1G championship contending for a top 4 spot.  
If you look back through the years of the BCS era (98-present) a 4 team playoff would have taken care of all the teams that got screwed, and satisfied the little sisters of the poor as well.

Dustin Fox was our leading tackler as a corner.... because his guy always caught the ball.

I won't be happy until it's an 8 team playoff with games at higher seeded teams house.
