You mean the way all of the other NCAA Football divisions do it?

I am really at a loss as to why a playoff is "necessary".

Back before the BCS days, there was arguing all winter long about who shoulda won the votes, who was jobbed and wound up as #3, but you know what?

No one got hurt by it.

The schools and the bowls still made money, the best players got their shot at pro tryouts, just like now. I was fine with it and I think lots of other fans were, too.

Besides, there is no playoff system I am aware of that will eliminate the real curse of Division I ball - the cupcake games scheduled to pad the W-L record.
