Could there be college football playoff is in the works? Serious discussions are taking place, and sources feel confident that a playoff will become a reality.
Brett McMurphy of CBS Sports presents the latest sentiment that instills this confidence.
While sources at the meeting said a four-team plus-one format looks likely when the new BCS format starts in two years, BCS executive director Bill Hancock stressed the meetings were “very broad and analytical” and that no decisions were reached. I would say obviously eight or 16 team (playoff formats) are not on the radar screen
Indications are that it should involve four teams. This could be huge. To make this a reality, very few changes would need to me made.
The fact that they are discussing it at all needs is positive and big step for a playoff. The rotation of a plus one championship game could rotate between the Sugar Bowl, Fiesta Bowl, Rose Bowl, and Orange Bowl.
