Re: Auburn coach speaks out against BCS system, ESPN
I don't think that a playoff system would necessarily have to do away with the bowl games. You use those weeks in December when they're not playing games anyway, with the exception of a few conference championship games, and you have the playoff to get down to the final two teams. Then you take the other teams that got eliminated from the playoff and give them bids to the other major New Years bowls. All of those other little bowl games that happen before New Years wouldn't be affected anyway since those teams are generally farther down in the rankings and wouldn't be part of the playoff anyway. You would still have coaches complaining about seeding and you would still have some teams on the bubble that would complain that they should have gotten in. There's no perfect system, but I think a playoff would be better than what we currently have and I don't necessarily think you would have to get rid of the bowl games entirely.
