Thought we were due for a non-controversial topic in the Non-Shop section.

Do you prefer the current BCS system or advocate for a playoff system?

Personally I like the current BCS system, but wouldn’t be opposed to a playoff.

Or we could give the winner of the SEC championship game the national title.

Oh wait, that is what usually happens anyway.

I believe the last SEC champion to loose a BCS game was Georgia to West Virgina in the 2005 season’s Sugar bowl.

I dont really see the bcs system as broken, so I guess keep it the same. The controversy is actually good for cfb. Gets and keeps people talking about it.

Looks like the big 12 for WV, your thoughts Pat?

Scott, your sec wins 5 titles in a row, so now they have a lead pipe lock on the next one? : )

Not a lead pipe lock but after winning 7 of the first 12 national title games and never losing a title game , I think it is a good start.

I think the BCS talk increases network viewership of regular season games and makes them much more meaningful.

I think WV would be a decent fit in the Big 12, geographically its a bit of a haul, but I believe we have created a very good program. I think on average WV will place 3-4th in the Big 12 with the occasional year wining it. In basketball I think we will be at the top immediately.

WV is definitely a football program on the rise and has been for awhile.

Yeah its a good start. SEC is like watching full grown, fast men play a game vs highschoolers. I am a lifelong MU fan, and I am not looking forward to football re-alignment, if it happens.

KU owns big 12 BB, hate to say it, but true. Once WV travels into allen fieldhouse, you will get a chance to see how tough they are in that building.

You call college football non-controversial??!! :-)

I hate to break it to you guys, but the real national championship game is being played a week from Saturday when LSU and Alabama meet.

Seriously, though, I guess we’re stuck with the BCS. There are really just too many teams and too many conferences to have a fair and meaningful playoff system.

Charlie, I have a strong feeling that the winner of the Bama-LSU game will go to the SEC championship game and loose to a lesser team. The only question will be will they get into the national championship game anyway? OK didn’t win their conference one year and still got into the championship game.

There are 11 football conferences, a 16 team playoff with each conferences champ and then 5 at large teams would be fair. The higher seeded teams would of course play the champions of the lesser conferences. Its all good though.

I vote for the playoff system but i also think that we are looking forward to a Division wide shake up in the conferences. As a Uconn alum and sports guy the Big East is crumbling, WV just left, Cuse is out too and the Big East is looking to Boise State to fill the gap … really Idaho, in the Big EAST? Ive heard super conference talk, Geno Auriemma bitching about Notre Dame being a football independant, and much more lately. I think that well see a lot of changes to not only conferences but to the overall structure of the NCAA. Anyway Pat i look forward to our hoops teams battlign it out for a few more years … U-Conn!
