But letâ€™s be honest, thereâ€™s not a conceivable playoff system out there that will both determine a true national champion while simultaneously filling the coffers of every BCS school (and, of course, Notre Dame).
The NCAA basketball tournament is a billion-dollar three-weekend event that crowns a true national champion with unrivaled elegance and unscripted suspense. Unfortunately, thereâ€™s just no way college football could ever replicate it.
But thatâ€™s ok, because the three-month regular season is college footballâ€™s billion-dollar event. Almost every Saturday along the way during these three months we the fans get a big game or two (or more, on those rare Saturdays) that means something to the standings. Iâ€™m good with that.
