So let's say that the BCS decides it's going to shut everybody up starting next season by implementing a playoff system. We've all heard the arguments for and against playoffs, so let's spare ourselves that trouble. Assume playoffs are in, for better or for worse.
The question at hand then, is how will these playoffs take shape? A 4-team plus one system is probably the easiest to implement, but Brian likes a 6-team system. Barack likes an 8-team playoff. Basketball does it with 64(/65) teams. There was even some heated discussion on this board about a 128-team, season long playoff. So what's the consensus? Further, is anyone/everyone married to their particular vision of playoffs or would you be happy to see anything over the current system?
