5. I agree that it's not a playoff.

For one thing, it shouldn't be connected to the remnants of the Bowl System. Alabama should be coming to Ann Arbor and the Big House. But there is never home field advantage. I know they are talking about doing it, but the highest seeds will have byes, so they won't get rewarded with home games, which is messed up.

I liked it way better before the BCS. Bowl season was flat out fun and you had 20+ happy teams. Now the stakes are too high and the northern teams all have to go south. My sister has been to a couple of Orange Bowls and she said she doesn't even feel as if she's at a college game, it's very corporate and there is so much hoopla.
