The only thing that would make sense would be to have all 11 current conferences get an autobid, and then 5 at-larges. 16 teams, first two rounds at the higher seeded team. This would keep the regular season intact, as you'd have to win your conference (or be lucky and get an auto-bid). There would be no maximum amount of conference teams in the playoffs- if the SEC had three or four teams in the top 10, then they'd all make it. It would kill the BCS, but the lesser bowl games would become like the NIT. People still watch the NIT, and it still makes money. There would be little argument from the teams "left out" as they'd still have the bowl game practices and the money associated with it- plus, they then should've won their conference.In this scenario, for example, last season would've had:1. Alabama2. Texas3. Cincinnati4. TCU5. Florida*6. Boise State7. Oregon8. Ohio State9. Georgia Tech10. Iowa*11. Virginia Tech*12. LSU*13. Penn State*14. Central Michigan15. East Carolina16. TroyIt's the only way that's fair, it's the only way that it would be done. Even with conference realignment, it would work... championship game winner gets in or regular-season champion gets in.

Viewing time and interest is pretty close to a zero-sum game. Give the remaining bowl games NIT-level interest and a lot of schools aren't making as much money as they used to. I point back up thread to what Furls said about there now being 35 bowls. We're almost at the point of eventually seeing Minnesota vs Vanderbilt in the Discount Drug Mart Bowl.
