SHARE Barack Obama makes a push for a college football playoff on ’60 Minutes'; BCS coordinator John Swofford responds

Those pining for a college football playoff may have cause for optimism, based on comments made by President-elect Barack Obama on “60 Minutes” Sunday night.

BCS coordinator John Swofford responded this morning.

For now, our constituencies — and I know he understands constituencies — have settled on the current BCS system, which the majority believe is the best system yet to determine a national champion while also maintaining the college football regular season as the best and most meaningful in sports. Swofford added: We certainly respect the opinions of president-elect Obama and welcome dialogue on what’s best for college football.

How very diplomatic.

So what do you think? What side of the college football postseason aisle do you sit on? Are you for or against a playoff or do you like the current system and the emphasis it puts on the regular season?
