Someone needs to just nuke the Rose Bowl so they can quit fucking everything up.

---- it. Tell the Rose Bowl to step off and just operate outside the "plus-one". That way everyone gets what they want. We get a playoff and at the same time get rid of those pretentious pricks.

I say no. Rose Bowl can either get with the effing program or gtfo. No special considerations, just stop.

Preserve the 4 bowls. Lose the conference tie-ins.

Year 1:
Rose - #1 vs #4
Fiesta - #2 vs #3
Sugar - Winner of Rose vs Winner of Fiesta
Orange - Loser or Rose vs Loser of Fiesta

Year 2:
Rose - Loser or Fiesta vs Loser of Sugar
Fiesta - #1 vs #4
Sugar - #2 vs #3
Orange - Winner of Fiesta vs Winner of Sugar

Year 3:
Rose - Winner of Sugar vs Winner of Orange
Fiesta - Loser of Sugar vs Loser of Orange
Sugar - #1 vs #4
Orange - #2 vs #3

Year 4:
Rose - #2 vs #3
Fiesta - Winner of Orange vs Winner of Rose
Sugar - Loser of Orange vs Loser of Rose
Orange - #1 vs #4

Cyp posted the quoted hypothetical scenario early in the thread. And any scenario in which the winner of a "semifinal game" isn't playing in the final game equates to a bogus system.

That scenario didn't involve the loser of a semifinal game making the national title game. It involved the loser of the Rose Bowl (which is specifically called out as not being a part of the playoff/semifinal game) making the national title game, i.e. the Rose Bowl gets special treatment.

But yes, I agree the system is dumb.

So they want a Big Ten or PAC 10 team to possibly get a weaker semi-final opponent. That's just not right.

CCG round one, BCS with current affiliations are round two, then two more rounds and it is over. Teams like Georgia Southern play 15 or so games if they make the CG. They big boys could do 16 or drop one gimme.

i'd be happy with only bowls and voting at the end; no "national championship".

I'd also be happy if they brought back ties (games and split champions)
