Looks as if the playoff systems fans and some college coaches alike have been seeking for years finally is becoming an reality. per this report from Yahoo! Sports:
The BCS Presidential Oversight Committee emerged from a meeting at the Dupont Circle Hotel late Wednesday afternoon to announce they have adopted the playoff format that had been approved last week by the commissioners of the 11 BCS conferences.
Semifinals will be held on Dec. 31 and Jan. 1; the championship game will be played on the first Monday that is at least six days after the last semifinal. The first playoff game will be Dec. 31, 2014.
This is great news for any coaches who feel the BCS system favored power conferences over mid-majors and leaves the participants for national championship primarily up to competitive football and not left up to a computer system.
We will have more specifics on the playoff system as they become available.
