How many times over the past decade have you looked at the two teams selected by the BCS (Bowl Championship Series) to play in the National Championship Game and thought, yeah, they got it right this year?
The NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision (formerly called Division 1A) is the only major NCAA sport without a playoff tournament to determine a champion. Every year the drum of support for playoffs beats a bit louder. In response the BCS conferences circle the wagons and stonewall true playoff reform.
The BCS made a giant step in 1998 season with the first BCS National Championship Game. They were able to cut through generations of post-season bowl tradition, inter-conference contracts, television rights, advertising sponsorships and local entrenched community organizations to host a championship game.
Taking the next step to reformat the post-season bowl schedule into a real playoff tournament seems to be too big of a hurdle for the collegiate conferences. Frankly, we believe it will take an act of Congress before fans see playoffs. Fortunately, President Barack Obama has expressed his desire for a college football playoff. With the help of college football fans across America, we hope to persuade Congress to pass a "playoff law" that President Obama can sign.
BCSReform is a grassroots alliance of college football fans and former players joining together to lobby Congress to pass legislation to implement college football playoffs. We are open to legislation that will lead to a college football playoff tournament. We support efforts of elected leaders like Congressman Gary Miller (R-CA) who are attempting to pass pro-playoff laws in Congress. If you'd like to see college football playoffs, please join us to help create the critical mass of fan support in Congress.
