Stewart Mandel at SI.com looks at the possibilities that the NCAA will go to a plus-one championship game (somewhat likely) or full-fledged playoff (no chance). Everyone gets their say here -- conference reps, bowl game heads, TV execs. Mandel explores the benefits and liabilities of the current setup and every other alternative. And if you can't understand why the Rose Bowl isn't in a hurry to accommodate the BCS, well, the BCS has pretty much screwed the Rose Bowl over the past five years.

"Last team with the ball wins" is a cliche, but sometimes cliches are the best way to get across the central narrative of an important game. If you like great quarterback play, you have to watch the NFC Championship Game.
