I was going to post this on a Dr. Saturday post, but their server kept screwing up, so I figured I would submit it here. This is just a hypothetical, but I would like to see what people think.
There will be anywhere between three (TCU, Boise, Florida/Bama) and five (TCU, Boise, Florida/Bama, Cincy, Texas) undefeated teams after next weekend. Since they are all undefeated, they theoretically are the only teams that qualify for consideration as a top team. Ideally, there would be a mini-playoff to determine which teams play in the NC. Won't happen, but hypothetically:
Three Teams: TCU/Boise would play in the first case, on Army/Navy weekend (Florida/Bama bye due to #1 rank) and the winner would play Florida/Bama in the NC game, as uncontested #2.
Four Teams: In the second case, where either Cincy or Texas lose, the playoff would be Florida/Bama vs Cincy/Texas, and TCU vs Boise, with the winners of the games meeting in the NC.
Five Teams: In the third case, they playoff would be by Strength of Schedule. Florida/Bama bye again due to #1 rank, Cincy vs Texas (as BCS) and TCU vs Boise (as non-BCS) play it out for BCS #2 and #3, respectively. Since there would still be two undefeated teams, the #2 and #3 would then play one last tiebreaker, leading to two undefeated teams in the NC game. Sure, it'd be two extra games for two teams, but it'd lead to a great NC game between two proven undefeated teams.
Of course, team-shuffling could occur, if TCU/Boise lose and Cincy/Texas both win then the four-team case would be divided differently.
