Tuesday on the Dan Patrick Show, BCS Director Bill Hancock defended the current system, because a playoff would hurt the regular season and the bowl games. So, is that true?
Let's just say the playoff involved the top eight teams in the final BCS poll. The first round is played at the home stadium of the higher seed the week after the conference championships, the second round is played at BCS bowl games and the BCS Championship Game is played the week after that. The rest of the bowl games stay as they are.
Would we be more or less interested? Let's take a look at the Top 10 games for the rest of the regular season and examine whether these games would be more or less intriguing if we had an eight-team playoff.
