A Fair Way to Determine a National Champion

Reorganize the out-of-control conference expansion into 7 BCS conferences based on region of the country. 10 teams each. 9-game conference schedule (everyone plays everyone). 1 out-of-conference BCS game (permanent rival like FSU-Florida or rotate opponents). 1 non-AQ game vs WAC, CUSA, etc. 1 FCS game against an in-state opponent. 12 regular season games.

#1 & #2 in each BCS conference play each other again in the Conference Championship game. 7 Champions enter an 8-team playoff with 1 at-large team. Takes 16 games to win the National Championship. 16 teams get a crack at it. 6 playoff games to be played at Rose, Fiesta, Cotton, Sugar, Orange, & a new bowl in the new Indianapolis Colts domed stadium. Game #7 the National Championship rotates between the bowl sites like it does now.

  • B1G classic w/ an Iowa for ND trade
  • a new conference is born, the GMC stretches from Illinois to Oregon
  • PAC-10 classic
  • military schools are Ind by themselves
  • conferences designed to promote what makes college football fun - rivalry games

After the 70 BCS schools, there are 55 non-AQ teams in 4 conferences. They play in a conference championship game. Maybe the right 13-0 non-AQ team w/ enough BCS wins during their undefeated season could earn the at-large bid.
