At last, a college football playoff: What say you?


By Andrew Tolentino | Football Editor

For years now, we’ve been hearing this statement (or something like it) at bars, friends’ houses, college campuses, and even across bathroom stalls. “Man, the BCS needs to figure it out, scrap the bowls, and get a playoff system in place.”

As of late yesterday evening, the wait is over. Meeting adjourned. The committee has spoken. College football will have a playoff system.

Starting in 2014, the college football championship will be decided by a four-team playoff. According to the Associated Press,  “the new format will create a pair of national semifinals. No. 1 will play No. 4, No. 2 will play No. 3.” Details are still rolling in, as far as where games will be played and exactly how the new system would work, but as collectors and sports fans we’re curious to hear your thoughts. Take the poll below and comment to let us know what you think of the decision.

How do you feel about the college football playoff system?

    What does this have to do with collecting cards? Nobody collects college cards compared to NFL. Isn’t Prestige out today?

    It’s a good start but it is only for the Top 4 teams (as picked by the selection committee). So I don’t see much changing in terms of having a Cinderella story team win it all. However it will definitely make it more interesting. I will be interested to see the full disclosure on the details of how the top 4 teams will be picked each year.
