That must have been someone else’s suggestion, and having teams ‘picked’ by coaches or any others would be subjective. My preference, as I said, is to take the subjectivity out of the process.

I do like the notion of the ‘Top 4’, as you put it, playing it out on the field. But my preference would be with how the ‘Top 4’ become the ‘Top 4’. I like the notion of determining the ‘Top 4’ on the field. 8) 8) 8)

If they are going to use this format to decide ( and I think the model isn't bad) is fire the commitee #1. #2, put together 4- 20 team conferences; 8 10 team divisions. Yes, that means some current FBS teams are left out. #3 play a round robin schedule in your division. #4 the 2 best teams in their division play in a conference championship. #5 - the 4 conference winners playoff to a winner. It is an absolutely objective way to determine a champion. All teams have a path to the championship. You can use a committee to seed it if you like or draw seeding out of a hat. Doesn't matter. Every team controls their own destiny when the season starts. If Cincinnati wins all their games, beating everyone in their division and winning their conference game they go. If they don't, they didn't do what they had to do. It is all on them. Donovan would not whine about that format. He just wanted a path. I think there should be a path. It doesn't have to be easy, but this format would everything ensure that the same 4 to 6 teams don't finish at the top every year. No one gets the benefit of the doubt. We don't need the eye test. Every game is very important. No one gets a do over in their championship game.

The only reason not to do it is fear that the teams in could be Coastal Carolina, Cincinnati, UCF, and BYU and TV cuts the payouts because the games aren't sexy enough. If you must include every team you would have to have 6-20 team conferences. I'm not for a bell curve to determine the best team. I am for a survival of the fittest format.

Well, sadly, it’s obvious to me the the NCAA has lost control and governance of Power 5 football and that Power 5 football is for sale.

In any event, it’ll be interesting to sit back and watch if and just how the ‘Power 5’ Conferences and the NCAA respond and address the Knight Commission’s findings and recommendations. I suspect that the ‘conference deck’ may very well be reshuffled with teams coming and going.

Yes. Who wants to start their real season in December or January. I don't know of any athlete worth his salt that doesn't want the best competition avalable. Coaches and AD's may look at it differently, but the athletes want the best. They want to measure themselves against the best. The culture created with this playoff system isn't allowing the best.

A dynasty ebbs and flows...Miami was king of the cowboys in the 80'-90's....their board said, when they were going to the ACC...it was the "All Canes Conference"...Hav'nt won the conference yet....

FSU ruled for years....and now Clemson...Bama had a dry spell...no winning season in 2000, 2003, 2004, 2006

Texas ruled for a time as did the Huskers....

And in my dad's age...Michigan ruled the west and Yale the east.
