    Now I think an 8 team playoff would be mch better, but at least the BCS system is on its way out and the Plus One would have just been an extension of that.

    Let the best teams play and give us a real champion.

    Great so we will get to see more bowl games in the south with 3 SEC teams and Oklahomo.

    That is not because of any bias. We just have the best teams.

    Maybe USC will do something this year. They seem the likely candidate to lose the National Championship game in 2013.

    Four is better than two

    Let's let it run for a few years and see how it goes. Now we actually get three games that mean something instead of one

    The rest of the bowl games are just exhibition games and have no real meaning

    The other bowl games haven't had an effect on selecting the national champion since the BCS came in to being. But they make lots of money and the fans love them. So they are not really meaningless. Watching Bama destroy Michigan State at the end of the 2010 season was great! Watching MS State annialate Michigan was fun too.

    Seeing the third place team from the SEC play the fourth place team from the Pac 10 is meaningless. With the realignment in the conferences, they are becoming meaningless also

    Meaningless to everyone but the few hundred thousand fans. Hell, there are only a handful of teams who really have a shot at winning the national championship. The rest are just playing for the fans, the traditions and to try and win THAT game.

    But at least with the new system we will have 4 teams in the running after the regular season and the conference championships.

    More good games to watch.

    We'll see what they come up with on Tuesday. I would strongly favor allowing only one team per conference.
