Re: BCS blather
I think a 64 team football tournament would be incredibly uninteresting the first two rounds. There's way more parity in basketball than football with 12 man teams and only 5 players playing at a time. That's what allows for so many upsets during march, you can get a hot shooter, or one team could get really cold. You wouldn't see that in football as the physical advantage is just too much.
I'd love to see 16 teams, but I think 8 or 12 is the sweet spot. With 12 teams, you could have the top 4 with byes set to play the 4 winners of the other 8 teams.
If they ever do go to a playoff though, they would need to cut the regular season down to 10 games plus conference championship. I think playing only 1 or 2 automatic blow out games is plenty. Play 2-3 non-conference games and then conference play. Don't have playoff games in warm climates, play them at the home stadiums until the national championship game. That's the only way it will be a level playing field.
