Schlabach: Playoff questions still remain

A major step was taken in the right direction for college football when a seeded four-team playoff model was endorsed coming out of the BCS meetings Wednesday. But as ESPN's Mark Schlabach points out, there are still some questions that remain concerning the playoff.

CHICAGO -- After 143 seasons, major college football will finally have a playoff to determine its national champion.

The FBS commissioners and Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick on Wednesday endorsed a seeded four-team playoff model for college football that would begin for the 2014 season. The current BCS system, which pits the top two teams in the final BCS standings in the national championship game, will remain in place during the next two seasons.

The commissioners' recommendation must be approved by the BCS Presidential Oversight Committee, which meets Tuesday in Washington, D.C. If approved, the four-team playoff would replace the BCS system, which has been in place since 1998.
