Remember when the B1G was absolutely against a playoff? Now they are tossing around the idea of having a system where the top four teams in the BCS go to semifinal games, with the higher seed teams hosting the matchups on campus. Like the Super Bowl, cities could bid for the title game.
It is amazing how the Big Ten's attitude has changed so quickly on this topic. Still, after lower bowl ratings and the SEC title game mess, it probably isn't entirely unexpected.
