Future BCS 4-Team Playoff Possesses Major Issues


Tuesday April 23, 2013; the BCS will unveil their future 4-team playoff mode, which will be implimented after the 2014 FBS season. Reading the early postings by sports writers from credible sports authorities indicates that the BCS and the NCAA are in agreement of going against their own principles and values. The next phase of the 4-team playoff format does possess major design issues and significant vested interest. Steps in the right direction, but not well thought out and against their morals and beliefs, all for the $$$. Again following the theory of Democritus and Almond.

In the early phases of this championship topic for the BCS, the NCAA and the BCS, both agreed in not wanting to extend the season past the current time in which it is now, ending on January 7 of the calendar year, or into the second semester of the academic year. Now, the future 4-team playoff will definitively extend into the next season and into the start of the 2nd semester of all major universities that compete at the FBS level of college football. Playing until January 12th of the calendar year, 5 days past the current date. That’s just one design flaw. The next design flaw, is the selection committee which could include 14-20 members, that will be chosen to select the 4-teams. Each member selected will still possess a vested interest objective/subjective thought to the committee party because of the large financial revenue that will be distributed. Even with this new expansion of 2 more FBS teams, this “exclusive” 4-team playoff group will significantly consist of the BCS programs and conferences members only group. The true facts have not yet been revealed by the BCS organization and Bill Hancock. Those will be revealed on Tuesday April 23, 2013. Seems to me that those with money are driving this train and making decisions based upon Democritus and Almond.

There is a new book available now, that addresses the college football playoff topic at www.lulu.com, titled “College Football in the BCS Era, The Untold Truth: An Analysis of Factors that Supports the 16-Team Playoff Model”. This book examines many aspects of college football during the BCS Era and offers an “inclusive” approach to a college football playoff format. Maybe the BCS committee and Mr. Bill Hancock should read this book. The link below gets you to the book:

Something tells me, I might need to send him a copy with a personal letter…..

With college football starting up their spring practices and in about 3 months time, the 2013 college football season begins. I used an educational approach on this topic of  college football, which examined the historical evidence and facts.  This book tells the truth about college football at the NCAA and the FBS level of play, in the unethical way they determine  and crown a “national champion”.  The information inside this book examines historical evidence and looked at numerical data from 1996-2012, within the college football season. This is NOT an opinion based book, like others that have been published. This book is supported by peer reviewed journal articles associated within the topic, books written by credible doctoral professors, books written by credible sports authors and data driven to support the hypothesis and theory, which supports the 16-team playoff model. The book also examines the 16-team playoff model theory by using the professional model for sports, while adopting the ‘inclusive” aspect of athletics and sports. The book was written in a style that will allow all sports enthusiast and college football fans to read and understand. I did not write the book from a p or f  value of significance, in which the majority of all research is written. The significance is in the percentages, ratios and tables that make it simple to understand.

This book ANSWERED the toughest question in college football of; playoffs or current BCS system. The future 4-team playoff format that the NCAA is accepting and investigating, will still cause issues and complaints. It will never offer the Non-BCS programs an opportunity to compete for the national title. It’s time that college football at the FBS level for the NCAA, to possess a 16-team playoff format which allows all FBS programs a FAIR opportunity to win the National Championship like the rest of the 88 NCAA sponsored sports and championships. It’s time for much needed change in college football at the NCAA/FBS level of Play.
