Conference commisioners meeting to hammer out the details today. Next week teh Presidents will meet in DC. 4 team playoff seems to be a given. Major points is if it is the conference champs or top 4 teams also will it be computer based or a selection committee. If strength of schedule is a big point I could the ACC and Big East in trouble making it to the playoffs.

Big ten and Pac 12 are already planning to play each other during the regular season and I see the Big XII and SEC doing the same. So even if you have a 11-1 team they would make it in over a 12-0 ACC or Big East team.

I read a few articles saying that the "plus one" format is the only format that will please fans. The logic behind it is that you preserve the current bowl system while adding a national championship game afterwards. I don't really like the idea of a "plus one" format.

I personally like a 4 team playoff with the teams being determined by the current BCS system.

Fwiw, the ACC commissioner is on the committee that is determing the format. I don't think the Big 12 commish is.

All 10 commisioners and Notre Dame AD are in the meetings. The President committee is the one that will decide what format to use. But every Conference has a voice. Said earlier in the thread a 6 team playoff would be the fairest. 4 team will usually mean 1 or 2 SEC team a Big10 team and either a PAC12 or BIGXII team. ACC and the rest of the conferences will be battling for the 4th position. ACC is going to get screwed by strength of schedule.

The details have yet to be hammered out, but Conference championships and strength of schedule will play a role in deciding who gets in. Sounds like a decent start anyway. I do think they will eventually expand to 8 teams, but 4 is good enough for now.

Until it is expanded, I don't expect to see any ACC or BE teams in the playoff.

If an ACC school like FSU or Miami goes thru the season undefeated, they will get in unless there are several other undefeated teams.

I think most ACC teams that are undefeated would still fall behind an SEC team with 1 loss in BCS polling.
