There is always so much controversy with the BCS poll. Who deserves to be in the title game? Who should be ranked higher? ect....
Should college football adopt a playoff schedule with the top 16 teams (or however many) to make sure that teams who people think should get a shot actually do?
How many bowl games should there be as well. last year there were 35. About 25 of the 70 teams had losing records.
The idea of a playoff in the college football circuit is just another uniform principle which, when fully assimilated to that level, would create another professional-level standard that not all players/teams can compete with. I know this sounds laughable to some people but they really are supposed to be students first. These college athletes who have skill and discipline enough for professionalism are going to be awash in temptation as it is. I believe a playoff would create another catalyst for players at that level to further dissociate their identities as students.
No college teams had losing records prior to reaching bowl games last year. It is a requirement that you must have a least a .500 record or be conference champions to receive a bowl invitation. A playoff would ruin College Football. Since the BCS has come along, the sport has become more popular than ever. If there was a playoff system, you would see teams resting players late in the regular season. Let's say conference champion got an automatic playoff bid. If Florida State and Florida each had three losses, but had already clinched each's division, they would not play starters, because it would be a meaningless game and they would not want players getting hurt before a conference championship game. What's unique about College Football is that every week changes the face of the season. One teams championship hopes are shot just about every week. When top 5 teams meet in basketball's regular season, it is one of the more meaningless games that is played all year. In football, one team keeps championship hopes alive while anothers is dashed.
A college playoff would be ideal to determine a national champion. High school state champions in California, Texas, and Florida already play 14-16 games a season to earn their title. The difficulty would be in determining the 16 or 32 teams that would be in the playoffs.

The Seahawks lost 7 of their last 9 games and still managed to host a playoff game at 7-9. Does the NFL need to recalibrate a new playoff system or leave it the same? What about strength of schedule? They become the...
