College Football has been played for over a century. For a wide portion of that time the BCS determined whom played in the national championship. In recent years, fans and critics have made it quite clear that they are extremely unhappy with it. Now, the NCAA is going to considers those cries and consider new options. They are meeting April 24- 26 to discuss these options:
- Playing the semifinal games at bowls and selecting a bowl game site for the title game;
- Playing all three games at neutral sites and not branding the games as bowls;
- Playing semifinal games at campus sites and selecting a bowl game site for the title game.
- Playing all three games at bowls;
The main arguments behind keeping the BCS are, tradition, lack of recognition of certain historical bowl games, and lastly making it hard for fans to participate, with all the travel and abrupt changes. Those complaints have now lost its luster. College football is the only sport, professional or collegiate that does not have a playoff. Also March madness’ playoff system is one of the most exciting events in sports. Is changing this the best option or will this lead to taking away the excitement of the regular season in college football?
