Re: BCS blather
I guess I don't see the BCS changing in a big-bang 8 or 16 team playoffs kind of way. If it changes, it will be in a more evolving way.
I think if they go to the "plus one" game, that's a good start. Seed the top 4 teams, 1 vs. 4 and 2 vs. 3. Then the winners play. Put these games in the 4 big bowls (2 semis and a finals) and the left-out bowl gets its pick of the next 2 teams. Rotate it all around like they do now.
Once that toe gets put in the door, its inevitable that it will expand to 8 or 16 teams.
And I'd love to see a "bad winter" game get played in the north. All the Big 10 teams would sell out their stadiums. There might be a problem with a Big East team though since their attendance is spotty. I'd love a snow-bowl game though. We used to play those as a kid and slip and slide and wreck someones back yard and get completely frozen but have a gas. I miss mud games too.
