Default 2014 Play Offs

WASHINGTON (AP) - College football will finally have a playoff. Come 2014, the BCS is dead.



A committee of university presidents on Tuesday approved the BCS commissioners' plan for a four-team playoff to start in the 2014 season.



The move completes a six-month process in which the commissioners have been working on a new way to determine a college football champion. Instead of simply matching the No. 1 and No. 2 teams in the country in a championship game after the regular season, the way the Bowl Championship Series has done since 1998, the new format will create a pair of national semifinals. No. 1 will play No. 4, No. 2 will play No. 3.



The winners will advance the national championship game.



The teams will be selected by a committee, similar to the way the NCAA basketball tournament field is set.



There are still some details to work out, but all the decision-makers are on board.

I like the top 4 them but would have really liked a top 8 with each conference champion of the major 5 and three wild cards but this is great too.

Ya, I'm with terp on this. A top 8 would have been much better. I read this yesterday and thought that immediately because the way the selection committee will roll out picks will end up giving us 4 SEC teams, which is boring. It's progress, so I"ll take it, but I would have liked 8 teams better.
