The College Football Playoff Becomes a Reality

Thank. God.

It's finally happened. There is going to be a college football playoff. Hooray for the good guys.

Sure, it's only a four-team playoff and, yeah, it doesn't begin until 2014, meaning we'll have to suffer through another year of the painfully unfair structure of the current BCS system.

I hate the current BCS. And you should, too. Only jerks and vampires enjoy the process by which the best college football team in the land is selected these days. 

A committee of university presidents made the decision to switch to a playoff today. There's no set venue for the mini-tournament games. Rather, the three games the comprise the playoff will rotate between current bowl games, except for the championship game.

Now, to convince these guys to create maybe an eight-team tourney. We can only hope.
