ESPN take on the AP poll

A bit dismissive of the Big Ten East for my taste but still an interesting read.Alabama/Fla. St and Oklahoma/Ohio St. losers will have lots of pressure on them to make the playoff.

That's an outside the box, interesting and logical idea. I like it a lot. Those games almost always suck. Is the money opportunity in these championship games too big to pass up though?

The article is flawed.  FCS does the whole playoff deal with way more teams in the playoff. There is zero reason that FBS can't continue having conference championships AND a 8 team playoff. For one thing I think you get better football. One of the problems with the four team playoffs and the major bowl games is the way too long a layoff between the teams last game the first weekend in December then their playoff or big bowl game.
