GWPFFL BrianW Posted December 9, 2009 Share Posted December 9, 2009 I've been advocating for the past couple years for a 12 team tournament as the fairest way. Giving the top 4 CONFERENCE CHAMPIONS 1st round byes, and everyone else seeded according to their BCS ranking. There would be no limits on the amount of teams a given conference could have, and the 6 BCS Conference Champions would get automatic bids. I would also throw in a rule where conference opponents couldn't play each other until the National Semifinals, unless it can't possibly be avoided (similar to the NCAA Basketball tournament, where conference foes can't meet until the Elite 8). So here would be my pie in the sky dream tournament for 2009 # Alabama # Texas # Cincinnati # TCU # Florida # Boise St. # Oregon # Ohio St. # Georgia Tech # Iowa # Virginia Tech # LSU 1. Alabama (SEC Champions) 2. Texas (Big XII Champions) 3. Cincinnati (Big East Champions) 4. TCU (Mountain West Champions) 5. Florida (At-Large) 6. Boise State (At-Large) 7. Oregon (Pac 10 Champions) 8. Ohio State (Big Ten Champions) 9. Georgia Tech (ACC Champions) 10. Iowa (At-Large) 11. Virginia Tech (At Large) 12. LSU (At Large) By rule, LSU and Va Tech would have to flip-flop to avoid the Florida-LSU 1st Round Match up First Round 8. Ohio State vs 9. Georgia Tech 7. Oregon vs 10. Iowa 6. Boise State vs 11. LSU 5. Florida vs 12. Virginia Tech Quarterfinals OSU/GT Winner vs 1. Alabama UF/VT Winner vs 4. TCU BSU/LSU Winner vs 3. Cincinnati UO/IA Winner vs 2. Texas Semifinals Quarterfinal Winner #1 vs Quarterfinal Winner #2 Quarterfinal Winner #3 vs Quarterfinal Winner #4 And then the National Championship Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
