if you had a 16 team playoff beginning the first or second weekend in December (Friday and Saturday) following conference playoffs (with 4 games each day), 4 games on the next weekend (all on Saturday), 2 games on New Year's Day (one of which is played at the Rose Bowl and the other of which is bid out to another major venue in Florida, Georgia, or Texas, with the BCS championship one or two weeks later at a major venue to be selected by bid or an NCAA committee. Under this scenario, assuming all of the top seeds (by BCS ranking) won, you could have, on New Year's Day, Notre Dame vs. Florida in the Orange or Sugar Bowl, and Oregon and Alabama in the Rose Bowl, with the winners playing a week or two later in the BCS championship game in let's say Texas Stadium. I be more inclined to watch not only the NYD games and the BCS championship game, but the games leading up to those games over the prior two weekends. Another benefit would be that a team like Northern Illinois, having qualified for a 16 team playoff, would not be playing on NYD unless they could legitimately upset a #1 or #2 ranked team earlier in the playoffs, which would make it more likely that the legitimate teams would get to the NYD and the championship. It's not too complicated and the blueprint is there from the NCAA basketball tournament, but I don't know if I'll still be around by the time anything like this format is adopted.
