This would be an improvement.  The more teams involved in the playoffs, the more legitimate the result.

But no matter how many teams are involved in the playoffs, there will ALWAYS be controversy EVERY year about the "first team left out."  I'd prefer to see a three-round eight-team playoff, but that's not going to happen.

This proposal would seem to be the next best alternative.

I like the idea, but  agree with the guy above... it doesn't matter if its four, eight, or sixteen teams, we will still hear an uproar about how unfair it is for the first one or two teams who didn't make it into the playoff... blah, blah, blah...

true... but at some point it is what it is. There is always going to be the "bubble teams" but that is life. At least this was you give two other teams the chance. 

Typically in CFB there are usually 1 maybe 2 teams that have a legitimate reason to gripe. Rarely does it go beyond that.

it's better than having a rematch for the championship game i think...not to say LSU and Alabama weren't the two best teams..but it just seemed to put a damper on the meaning of the championship since they had already played one another albeit in the regular season...

just seemed like a revenge game on neutral turf....if a playoff was involved it and they happened to meet again in that manner I would have no problem with that

i'm fine with it 1 way or the other. I'm not losing sleep. they're probably going to have a selection committee. Not being an behind but i watch a ton of college football and talk on here in game threads with my brethren. Put me on there. I'm serious i have no favorite team. Either way the 4 team playoff is coming

It would be a Joke 

Somehow they would mess it up...

Likely put a 7-5 Notre Dame in over a 11-1 Oregon

Still think it should be Conference Champs unless they are ranked outside the final top 10.. then go to highest rated non champ..

Disagree. What if the Big Ten champ is 8-3 and ranked 7th or 8ths? They shouldn't get in. should be top 4 teams

I like the idea, but I think they should do the top 8 teams in a play off and let them play it out... no matter what they do, someone will be mad so nothing will solve it completely

UT fans should be vehemently against a 4 team playoff.......at least then Horns have a shot at a "mythical" nat'l championship.

 I suppose it's possible, but I highly doubt an 8-3/9-3 B10 winner would be ranked in the top 10..................agree, should just be top 4.

 The big problem I see now is that EVERYONE is scheduling garbage ooc games.......

If there is a four team playoff, teams in the SEC should stop beating up on each other and play cupcakes like the same teams that think they should be in the playoffs with their cupcake schedule.

Check this out Boise State fans >>>>

Boise 2011 schedule: Revised for Alabama

Week 1.]  Georgia vs Alabama

Week 2.]      Open Date

Week 3.]  Toledo vs Alabama

Week 4.]  Tusla vs Alabama

Week 5.]  Nevada vs Alabama

Week 6.]  Fresno State vs Alabama

Week 7.]  Colorado vs Alabama

Week 8.]  Air Force vs Alabama

Week 9.]  Open Date

Week 10.]  UNLV vs Alabama

Week 11.]  TCU vs Alabama

Week 12.]  San Diego State vs Alabama

Week 13.]  Wyoming vs Alabama

Week 14.]  New Mexico vs Alabama  >   No Iron Bowl this will never be taking away no matter if there's a play-off or not...why? because us in Alabama don't give a rats behind about nothing but winning the Iron Bowl the NCG is secondary but accepted with pride when either Alabama or Auburn gets there.

So week (14) on a Boise State 2011 schedule would be Alabama vs Auburn

Rivalrys could end, to make schedules equal.

They could rename college football to "cupcake wars"

Fans don't always travel well for all teams. Remember its all about the $$$$  which most likely makes a play-off system a big flop.

I'm not against the play-off, myself i can't wait to see people girl about the play-off system when the SEC still wins the NCG.

As an Auburn fan I must say your comment on the iron bowl is right on for the majority, something people on the outside could never understand. We can cuss each others like dogs (have done so myself here on more then one occasion), but that game I respect Bama players and team without question as I know they put there team above self and it goes both ways as very few players in any sport do.

SEC already plays cupcakes . Outside of one or two dominant teams the SEC is = MAC

I think the other conferences outside the SEC that are for a playoff are kinda foolish for agreeing to a 4 team playoff and not an 8 team playoff.  Will anyone be surprised if the SEC gets 2 of the 4 spots?
