BCS Changes?

I know baseball just started, but I still feel like talking about football. It sounds like the BCS is now at least considering substantial changes to the college football post-season:

The Bowl Championship Series is focusing on four main options for changing the system that determines college football’s national champion, from minor tweaks of the current system to a full-fledged, four-team playoff at neutral sites, USA Today reported.

To me, the best thing about college football in its current incarnation is the “every game matters” mentality. Unlike the last few weeks of the NFL or the vast majority of the NCAA Basketball regular season, college football has high-stakes pretty much throughout the season – because there’s no playoff, there’s no “second chance” for would-be National titles.

That said, the current system is certainly far from perfect – the preference for early-losses and rich teams is particularly troubling. I’d be open for changes, as long as the regular season balance remains in place.
