I hate BCS crap so much and thats why I'm being antagonistic. People should play by the same rules to get into the title game. If I'm a conference I don't schedule championship games, my big rivals at end of year, etc. Every big game is early. So so so so so dumb.

I totally get this statement, and I totally agree with you given what the system is.

Also, I absolutely DETEST preseason polls.

Yes, another totally ridiculous facet.

The Hawaii argument might be void if they keep playing like this.

I am a fan of a playoff system where 3 plays 6 and 4 plays 5, followed by 1 playing the lower advancing seed and 2 the higher. The winners of this round would then play for all the beans

All of these would be played on neutral sites. IMO these games would be a huge draw. Since the Sugar/Orange/Rose bowl would lose some of their significance with 1-6 out of the picture, maybe they could rotate being the championship game

I've always been a fan of a similar playoff system, with the five games in the tournament serving as the five BCS "Bowl" games (or if you want to do a four-team playoff, use three of the Bowls and rotate it each year).

I fail to see why this wouldn't work for all parties.

Hilarious.

Maybe there just should not be a national champion this year.

And if they care about tradition or whatever just follow same bowl guidelines. If the winners of the tournament are Pac10/Big10 champs gogo Rose Bowl.

Never mind, that means teams get two (or even three) BCS payouts. That won't fly.
