While it's true that most fans would prefer playoffs, I'm not a fan of the idea, and certainly not a 32-game playoff. That would be utterly ludicrous.

What made the aforementioned Boise State@Nevada game so great was how much was riding on it. Losing was an absolute disaster for Boise. In a 16 or 32 game playoff, it'd have been a game with no relevance whatsoever, and half of Boise's starters would have been rested.

Whilst the bowl games aren't perfect, and mean that the season doesn't really end with as much of a bang as some would like - the system does make the regular season absolutely brilliant.
