The much anticipated college football playoffs, which begin in 2014, has a less than exciting name. ‘College Football Playoff’ is the name of college football’s playoffs. Creative, isn’t it?
The playoffs will only feature four teams, so it’s hardly even a real playoff, but just another way to keep money in the big conferences so the rich get richer. But still, it’s much better than the BCS system we have now.
The College Football Playoff will at least give us better and more exciting games at the end of the year. With a playoff, teams will have to win two tough games to become the National Champions, instead of just one. Unfortunately, the regular season might provide less big games for us now. Teams will add even more cupcake teams to their out-of-conference schedule in order to have a better shot at being in the final four of college football. But it’s not like we’re not used to that going on down south. (Sorry, SEC.)
The conference commissioners are meeting this week in Pasadena, California to determine the name of the postseason system that will replace the BCS, the rest of the semifinal sites and where the first title game will take place in January of 2015. The Rose, Orange and Sugar bowls have been selected as semifinal sites.
