BCS vs. Playoff Debate Heats Up as 2011 Ranks Roll Out
Over October's middle weekend, the 1st BCS Rankings of 2011 were unveiled to various speculative reactions. Many of these opinions turn towards an alternative, as broadcaster Jonathan West has developed an NCAA Division 1-A football playoff based on BCS Rankings and keeps current post-season BCS & traditional bowls intact- separate from a playoff.
This Major College Football Playoff System, at www.majorcollegefootballplayoffsystem.com, is a 12-team playoff based on final BCS Rankings; setting up first-round byes for the nation's top 4 programs, and home playoff games for the higher seeded teams in each match-up. MCFPS has a new online addition- as the website shows the potential post-season match-ups with each week of BCS Rankings released.
"Just say no to Super Conferences," West says. "Too much consolidation leads to diminished returns & traditions- all in search of an automatic bid? This playoff system is the best of both worlds: combining the accuracy of the BCS Rankings with the mass public outcry for a playoff system."
On October 18th, packets explaining the Major College Football Playoff System have been sent to the Bowl Championship Series, NCAA, National Football Foundation, Football Bowl Association, business people, legislators, state officials, athletic directors, and school presidents.
“I like the system because it crowns a true champion,” says Russ Cohen of Sportsology.com. “Plus it creates good revenue streams and every worthy team gets a fair shake.”
research bases a 12-team playoff on multiple factors including
conference numbers, undefeated teams, and its timing versus
academic/holiday calendars. West's main argument for keeping the BCS
Rankings concerns the formula's ability to "naturally select"
a 12-team playoff, based on its history.
"This Playoff System gives every single NCAA Division 1-A Football program a chance to play for the National Title," West says. ”With the release of the 2011 BCS Rankings, the debate is 'more' on towards a workable playoff possibility. I just hope to seriously contribute to the conversation."
Major College Football Playoff System by West's business Two Man
Productions does not involve but keeps intact any postseason BCS &
traditional Bowl games, except for the BCS National Championship.
