The power brokers in college football have announced there will finally be a playoff for the Division I national championship starting in 2014. Four teams will be selected to play in the semifinals, but if you think that will quell the debates, you have another thing coming, says Fox Sports college football analyst and New Paltz High School graduate Charles Davis.
“If you thought we had discussions and controversies on who the top teams were before, wait until we try to figure out who the top four are,’’ Davis said. ”I don’t think four is the right number. To me it’s 16.’’
And who gets to decide which four schools will be invited to the playoffs?
“We don’t even have a committee yet and I’m already hearing people scream there’s going to be bias,’’ Davis said. “The make-up of the committee will be interesting. Should it be coaches? Administrators? Media? That’s going to be a major deal. Everyone brings biases to the table. They need to try to balance the group so that the bias gets balanced naturally.”
