    I’m sorry but that system was horrible.
    I understand and respect your opinion. You are “future coach”. My name should be...”ReallyOldCoach”!

    IMHO:

    Classic setup left way too much to chance. If you returned to it the term "Mythical" would have be re-inserted.

    BCS was not bad.

    Four is enough.

    Eight is too many.

    Sixteen is insane.

    The old mythical system didn’t work. It was whichever team had the most media power in their section of the country. Notre Dame and Michigan St tied in their game 10-10 in 1966 season and both ended with no losses and that one tie. Alabama was undefeated the same season. Voters gave the national title to Notre Dame. Go figure.
