After much hemming and hawing, it looks like we're going to get a four-seeded college football playoff.
BCS has achieved consensus on 4-team seeded playoff— Brett McMurphy (@McMurphyCBS) June 20, 2012
What it'll look like remains to be seen, but it will be four teams seeded in some manner. The top four teams overall based on rankings or a selection commitee, regardless of conference affiliation? The top four conference champions based on similar criteria, but also eliminating the possibility of at-large teams like Alabama winning it all? Will it be a format that involves the bowls (i.e. a plus-one situation)?
There does appear to be a favorite among the college commissioners.
Sources tell @CBSSports commissioners preferred model is "best four" w/emphasis on conference champs using selection committee— Brett McMurphy (@McMurphyCBS) June 20, 2012
We'll have to see what the college presidents agree upon before we can say we're getting the playoff we've been hoping we'd get for a long time.
