    That means that no more CAL no more penn state or other good colleges that are better teams than some rink a dink supersmall school with barely 8 wins. that means that georgia wouldnt have ot in the tournament because LSU was already in.
    Noooo at least one team per conference. Like in the NCAA BB Tournament, each conference has at least one team, yet good conferences like the Big 12 have multiple teams

    if the ydid get a tournament then how many teams get in?
    Some people say 8 teams is OK, I say 16 so each conference gets one team as long as they have 8 or more wins.

    A college football tournament would the best thing ever, man. Brackets, Cinderella upsets, people taking off work/school on that first Friday... Imagine the possibilities.

    OK so by your argument, Davidson shouldn't have been given a chance in the NCAA Tournament because their conference sucked, and Kansas/UCLA/UNC/etc. played in tougher conferences.

    They beat Oklahoma.

    They clobbered Oregon State.

    They destroyed every team in their conference except for one.

    And yet they didn't get a shot.

    Yeah but your argument is that teams try hard in the regular season. Think about it this way. Even if USC lost to Stanford, they still would have had to try hard to make the playoffs. BUT BECAUSE THEY WERE ELIMINATED FROM THE BCS BOWL, THEY DIDN'T TRY HARD.

    So that argument doesn't work here.

    By college football keeping Boise St. out, the NCAA is telling them, "It doesn't matter that you went undefeated and tried hard every week."

    And if a team loses its first game they usually don't try too hard. See USC vs. Arizona after the Stanford loss. And I don't think USC tried too hard vs. Stanford.

    they did but...
    strength of schedule

    If there was a playoff then Michigan could go almost all the way...maybe...we definately know they dont deserve to have that chance...It should be who performs the best during the regular season
