ESPN has an article on how the BCS is trying to structure the selection committee for the upcoming 4-team playoffs. The committee will have between 14-20 members, including representatives from all ten BCS conferences. The BCS director also stated that the members will be "football purists," whatever that means.
The part of the article I found most interesting was the following passage, which describes factors the committee will be looking at:
" The selection committee will receive a "jury charge" from the commissioners. In ranking the teams, the committee will consider strength of schedule, where the games were played, conference championships and whether teams lost games because of injuries to key players."
I am a bit surprised they intend to take "injuries to key players" into account. I don't necessarily think they should or shouldn't, but I can see the kinds of controversies that might lead to.
