Pendergast said the new BCS playoff system is not the ideal system he’d like to see, and that he would prefer a 16 team playoff as opposed to the 4 teams the BCS decided on. However, he said that he liked seeing some of the bad things about the BCS being swept away, such as discouraging scheduling up out of conference and not using a committee to pick the teams.

“I’m not a fan of the quantity of teams,but I’m hugely in favor of the machine that’s being put in place and that it’s getting rid of some of the bad parts of the BCS, of which they are several.”

Pendergast also gave his thoughts on who the big conferences would be in the playoffs, and where the games might be played. At this point, there’s still a lot of speculation about the new system, and there may still be some changes made before the new system is launches. Pendergast said that the BCS has to play at least a few seasons in the new system to see how it’ll all work out.
