Yesterday, huge news in the world of sports was announced when the BCS commissioners agreed to a new 4-team playoff that would start in 2014.
The BCS presidential committee must finalize the agreement when they meet on June 26th before it will be set in stone. The agreement states that four teams would be picked by the committee and then play in either the Fiesta, Orange, Sugar or Rose Bowl with host sites being picked before the season. The national championship would be given to the city bidding the most.
If the playoff was in place last season then top-ranked LSU faces Stanford in one of the BCS bowls. In the other playoff game, second-ranked Alabama earns a shot vs Oklahoma State. Both teams were so close in the final BCS rankings, a game between the two would of been noteworthy. A title game between the two SEC schools might have occurred still, though having the extra game would of made things interesting.
The new system won’t be in place until 2014, so we gotta go with this old system one more season. Let’s hope for a clear-cut top two-ranked teams to duel it out at the BCS title game.
