FORT WORTH, Texas—Most college football fans have the same complaint about the game they love so much: the Bowl Championship Series, or BCS. It was announced Friday that college football would start moving away from the current BCS and toward a four team playoff for the 2014 season.
On the TCU campus, where this fall the Horned Frogs will be play in a renovated stadium and in the Big 12, football life is good. At Fuzzy's Tacos just off campus, the buzz was about the BCS, the current system to pick a college football champion.
"You can have a great No. 1 team and they have the talent, they have it all, and then there is a fluke that they have a bad game, and then they are basically out and there is no chance for them to be in the national championship," said Haselton.
Texas Longhorns fan Brandon Chillcutt said moving away from the current BCS and into some sort of playoff needed to be done.
"I definitely think that it will pull out a little more of a clear cut, 'These guys are better than the other guys,' and that is what you really want," Chilcutt told CW 33 News.
However we still don't know how the teams would be chosen and where and when the games would take place. TCU fan Chase Burton said the details were important.
"We just went into the Big 12, so, if it is not by conference, and just fourth overall, it would hurt us and could potentially help out someone like Boise State who's in an easier conference, but will have a better record because of it," he said.
There are a series of meetings this summer to hash out when and where the games would be played, but the playoff system opened up the possibility of having a playoff or championship game one day at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. That would be huge for the Metroplex.
"It's going to draw people and it's going to help the businesses and the economy, and I think that would be great," said Stephanie Warren, from Keller, Texas.
Joseph Armendarez, who just finished the tour of Cowboys Stadium Friday afternoon, thought the stadium would be a perfect location for a big college football game.
"It has the room and it has the size and the accomodations for everybody. Just the seating itself I think is 80,000, and it is just an amazing facility," said Armendarez.
Cowboys Stadium seats 80,000 but has a capacity of more than 100,000 people including standing room only.
