BCS - Why can't we have a real playoff?

Read Randy's comments on the BCS - other than the "it's tradition" argument - wouldn't you agree that a playoff system just makes sense?

It makes me crazy once again this year we have two undefeated teams and the BCS champion can't really claim the National Championship because there is no playoff system. Say what you want about Boise State not being able to beat either of the teams that played tonight. Last year nobody gave Utah a chance in the Sugar Bowl against mighty Alabama, and Utah handed them a convincing loss. Who wouldn't pay to see Boise State and Alabama play it out? In my opinion there will always be an asterik until we have a true playoff system. Strength of schedule, and all other arguments aside It would be awesome. Are there any sports enthusiasts out there who don't like March Madness?

Joe, I completely agree.  At least go to the Bowl plus 1 so that if there are 2 teams undefeated, play them off.  I'm sure everyone can handle another week of college football!

A playoff I would think should have 4 or 8 teams to know for sure. I think Alabama would crush Bouse State but we will never know Joe.

Gary - Last year Alabama clearly looked past Utah and got crushed themselves!  Also, Boise State not only handled TCU very well this year, but defeated the "mighty" Oklahoma Sooners on that final statue of liberty play.  The reality is that you're probably correct that Bama would crush Boise but experience has proved how hard it's been for the favorite to remain focused to the task on hand.
