College football commissioners believe a selection committee will be the best way to determine the top four teams in a playoff.

A college football playoff is on its way which will probably involve the top four seeds. It'll be interesting to see how they end up deciding who the top four teams are, which is why the preferred method will be the selection committee.

A selection committee will be interesting because it's highly unlikely that whoever they pick won't draw less controversy than the current format we've already put in place. Who is to decide who the fourth best team is between a 11-1 Stanford team that didn't win its conference or a 11-2 Oregon team that beat Stanford and won its conference but lost one more game and was ranked lower in the final BCS standing?

The new playoff format might cause a few more issues.
