Playoff thoughts while (trying) to watch Miami - VT

Pete Fiutak of College Football News is actively promoting his ideal 8 team playoff scenario.  He wants the 6 BCS conference champs, plus the top ranked non-BCS conference champ, plus the highest ranked at-large team.  My response: NO NO NO NO NO!

This year, putting a team from either the Big East or the ACC, much less one from each, would be a complete travesty.  They have less business in a playoff than the top high school team from Texas.  I tried, I really did, to watch some of the Miami -Virginia Tech game tonight.  Folks, this is not football.  Does anyone really believe that either of these teams would be ahead of Iowa State in the Big 12 North?  Well, maybe I exaggerate, but you get the idea. 

If we are going to get serious about a playoff, it has to be the best 8 teams, period.  This year, that does not include any teams from the Big East or ACC.  Some year, it might not include any teams from another of the BCS conferences.  Let the best teams in, regardless of conference affiliation. 

Of course, this is intended to benefit our grandchildren, who may be alive when a college football playoff is finally implemented.  I don't expect to live that long.
