A better college football playoff plan

Thinking about a solution to the BCS problem, I came up with a 16-team playoff system, using conference champions as the top 11 slots, with wild card teams filling out the field of 16. But some don't like that. Some complain that teams like Troy or Buffalo shouldn't make the mix while better teams like Oklahoma State, Georgia Tech, Brigham Young, or Ball State are left out. So, if its the best teams that should fill the field of 16, then there's an easy solution:
  1. Florida
  2. Alabama
  3. Georgia
  4. Mississippi
  5. Louisiana State
  6. South Carolina
  7. Vanderbilt
  8. Kentucky
  9. Arkansas
  10. Tennessee
  11. Auburn
  12. Mississippi State
  13. Oklahoma
  14. Texas
  15. Southern California
  16. Utah
Problem solved.


  1. Uh, Basil, you mistakenly typed a number fifteen and a number sixteen. I think that we can ALL agree uSCCC shouldn't ever play in a bowl game and I am not even sure that the Utes really exist. The top twelve look fine, and I have no objections to 13 and 14, but if you have to add another two teams, I suggest Okie State and Tee-Tee.

  2. Yeah, after the top 12, I kinda zoned out.
