Thanks to Houston losing, the BCS has some pressure taken away. For one, the Cougars were the only other undefeated team left next to LSU and for as much chaos as there has been this season, a non-BCS school dropping out is big.
Much like with what happened twice in Utah (2004, 2008), twice in Boise (2006, 2009), and once in TCU (2010), a non-BCS school went undefeated and had a legit argument to contend for the BCS title. Well, that only added more wood to the fire in terms of adopting a playoff system.
But now that Houston has fallen from grace, there's no worry about a non-BCS school busting the party and messing up the whole system. That being said, now there's just controversy among the BCS schools.
So, although there's a good argument for implementing a playoff system throughout the BCS schools, there's less fire on the BCS system with Houston out of the conversation.
