Or add how you would fix/ alter it.

How to fix the NCAA college football championship game.

We all know the madness that goes on at the end of the college football season. Who's number 2 and 3? Number 1 is usually pretty clear, however it's never a guarantee. There will always be an argument over 2 and 3. I have come up with the solution to fix the controversy. My plan would actually benefit the 3 seed, as well as 10 others.

Here is my idea for a "play-off" system for the NCAA.

Top 10 qualify. ( I would rather who should be 10 over 11, rather then 2 over 3).

1st round
1 seed bye
2 seed bye
3 v 10
4 v 9
5 v 8
6 v 7


2nd round
1 v highest seed
2 v second highest seed
Lowest seed v second lowest seed.

3rd round
Lowest seed automatically advances to the championship game
2 remaining play for a chance to be the away team for the championship game.

4th round
Championship game. - lowest seed gets home field- (Neutral site like the current situation, or even allow for the home team to host the game! support the local)


1st seed would have to win 2 games
2nd lowest seed would have to win 3 games
3-10 would have to win 4 games.

This way the 1st seed would have to win 2 games ( with having byes in between games to rest, and game plan etc. They are the 1 seed so they should have the advantage of having to win less games, they proved during the regular season they are the best team in college they should only have to beat 2 of the top 10 teams.)
Lowest team would always have the home field.


A total of 9 games for the top 10 teams in NCAA, instead of 5.
The country would be able to see talent from the top 10 schools on a national level. If you win, you get another game in front of a national audience.
Makes the regular season more meaningful for ranked teams.
1 through 6 all get a home field game
3 seed has a chance for 2 home games, if 3 gets upset then 4 seed gets a second home game and so on.

Rest of the teams get a bowl game.

this is a horrible idea IMNHO 

why punish the top 2 teams and force them to play teams that Lost 2+ Games 

if the playoffs ever come say goodbye to out of conference games vs BCS Schools ---say hello to scheduling as many FCS foes as possible

We don't want a playoff! Last thing we need is teams resting starters. College football is all about style points and fancy number.

Next we'll see teams taking a knee inside the 5 yard line with under 2 minutes to go because they are up 7+. Bullshit.

I do not think this will be an issue with a +1 system

Do you think the bowl season has too many extra games?  I'm pretty sure I saw a lot of stadiums not sold out. People want to watch the last week of the bowl season.

What about top 7.
Round 1
1 gets a bye
2 v 7
3 v 6
4 v 5

Round 2
1 v highest ranked
second lowest ranked v second highest ranked

Round 3
Championship

6 games for the top 7
 
Round 1 could be home games
round 2 can be at current bowl locations
round 3 can stay with the current championship game.

biggame its not that your idea is bad it's the fact that the best we're going to get is the plus 1/final 4 for football. I don't remember who said it but one of these empty suits said "The only reason people want a college football playoff is so they can fill out a bracket" That shows you the type of people that are running these schools
