Brent Musburger proposes eight-team playoff

by Mel Bracht Published: December 5, 2008

In my interview this week with ABC sportscaster Brent Musburger, I asked him for his opinion on whether college football should go to a playoff. He offered a proposal for an eight-team playoff. Here are his thoughts:

Musburger: If we’re going to got to a playoff, two things have to happen for me. You have to keep a meaningful regular season, that’s No. 1. No. 2, the bowls and the sites have to be involved in the end game.

I would choose the six BCS conference champions. You have to win your conference championship to qualify. That helps enhance the regular season. Then I would choose the top-rated non-BCS conference champion, which would be Utah, and I would leave one at-large berth open, and this year that at-large berth would go to a team in the Big 12 South.

I would take the four top-rated teams and give those schools a home game. The four losers in the quarterfinals I would send to the bowl pool, so that they are free to go. I would play the two semifinals on New Year’s Day. I would have the bowls bid it out much like they do for Super Bowl sites, then I would go one week later, like we do now, and play the championship game.

Who are you voting for as the Heisman winner?

I can not remember a tougher year for me to pick No. 1. I normally have No. 1 identified. Even what I heard about Graham Harrell playing with as many breaks as he had in those two fingers, and the amount of surgery, I can’t eliminate him coming in, and he doesn’t have a game left. Sam Bradford is the one who gets the stage the last time. There’s no question my vote will go to a Big 12 quarterback. I suppose that’s a little unfair to Tim Tebow, but I haven’t seen him in person since early in the year and I’ve got an enormous amount of respect for him. I guess if he were to play like Superman against Alabama, you would have to include him in there. As of this moment, it will be a Big 12 quarterback. It’s hard for me. These guys have been so special for us all year long. I hate to say I would walk away from it and not vote, but it is very tough for me to separate these guys. I think they are all special.
