There has never been a drive to have a tournament style defining of a football champion...for years, it was the AP and UPI polls....and split champions.
The number one and number two teams were not often matched in a bowl....the BCS was then established to match the #1 & #2 team to determine a Champion...that's all they did.
That expanded to the #1-#4 playoff format of the CFP...
By having relatively few teams play off...the regular season and conference championships have remained meaningful.
I don't know about "fair and equitable"....When there is such a disparity between teams/conferences...it is always equitable to have the best play for it. It is that determining of the "best" that may be the rub....but we seed in basketball and can do so in football.
I don't see the relevance of your response to my post............and I never stated "fair and equitable" and would respectfully ask that you not misquote me.
