if I was Bensen I would sign the wac up as the first conference member. Maybe you would have
have a play-in game between the wac vs sunbelt or Mac to be one of the 16 teams. Play it up
to be a touney to determine the national champion with or without the bsc schools.

The only problem I have with a playoff is that I fear it will only further exclude the small conference schools. If there was some type of guarantee that the conference champion of every conference got in then I would be ok with it.

This would be great. I like the idea of the top 8 or 16 BCS ranked teams making the playoffs...then it's all about performance, but conferences play a part in providing SOS, but could also see the excitement in giving every conference a chance like the NCAA BB tourny. The only thing is you can't let it get as out of control as that, with too many teams, and less a focus on the regular season. NCAA FB has a great regular season.

The problem is that the presidents and AD's of the power conferences, and PARTICULARLY commissioners such as Darth Delany, care FAR more about power than about money, so it will never happen.

Please merge the threads so Mahler doesn't have to post on both threads. I don't want the person to get Carpel Tunnel Syndrome.
