According to several experts, a plus 1 format is almost certain to happen - although certain powers that be refuse to call it a "playoff", lol.
Sounds like they want to keep the bowl alliances in place but add a championship game. What are the various formats that would work?
I'm thinking we keep the 4 bowls then 2 of the bowl winners square off for the BCS championship.
This year it would have been OState vs Bama assuming LSU and Bama had played each other in the regular Sugar bowl instead of the title game. But how would you determine who plays who in each game and who advances?
a. Take the top 2 seeds AFTER all 4 bowls?b. seed the top 4 teams to face each other in 2 of the BCS bowls, then the other 2 bowls get the leftovers?c. something else?
option A could preserve the Pac10 and Big 10 Rose bowl alliances, while option B would most certainly interfere or destroy those alliances as the 2 "semi-final" bowls would presumably rotate every year. I think there is a hybrid scenerio that could work, but I can't get my head around it.

"in 1a college football..every game is HUGEits the only team sport thats like thatu mess up one week an your season is ruined."
Or you go undefeated and 2 other teams do likewise and you get no chance at the title. That isn't right.
"no second chances"
Now that is HILLARIOUS coming from a Bama fan.
I put that in there just for u;)
lsu or bama would have crushed u last seasongo to the crying thread
Looks like your right about a 4 team playoff
it wont happen untill 2015 season though
Today SEC says fine..just take top 4 ranked teams..
Not 4 conference winners ( which is completely absurd)
Well guess what..the playoffs nuts want conference winners.This playoff has nothing to do with having the 2 best teams playing for it all.
The 2 best teams usually do play in the big oneThey dam sure did the last few years.
Only 2 teams I can think of that were very good an were left outBecause of weak sc.
