What do you think of their proposals for the format so far?

BCS memo lays out proposals for change, including playoffs - ESPN

Among the proposals in the memo is "four teams plus" -- an arrangement that would expand to six teams to account for the traditional Big Ten vs. Pac-12 rivalry embraced by the Rose Bowl, according to the report.

In that scenario, if the top four teams in the BCS rankings included teams from the Big Ten and/or the Pac-12, that team (or teams) would play in the Rose Bowl while the other four highest-ranked teams would play in two other games. Finalists for a championship game would then be chosen from among the three semifinal winners, according to the report.

The most radical departure proposed in the memo is a four-team playoff with semifinals and a championship game, according to the report. The memo does not use the word "playoff" to describe the proposal, instead calling it a "four-team event."

A wide range of options for a playoff are presented in the memo, including:
Playing all three games at bowls.
Playing the semifinal games at bowls and selecting a bowl game site for the title game.
Playing all three games at neutral sites and not branding the games as bowls.
Playing semifinal games at campus sites and selecting a bowl game site for the title game.

A lot of this is posturing by the BCS conferences. There's also talk about removing the NCAA from the bowl process completely.

It all dovetails conveniently into the BCS conferences breaking away from the NCAA to rid themselves of what's left of the mid-majors.
