WASHINGTON (AP) — The best way to determine a major college football champion seemed so obvious to so many for so long. Just have a playoff.
Now the people in charge of making that decision are on board, too.
Come 2014, the BCS is out. Playoffs are in.
A committee of university presidents approved a plan Tuesday for a four-team playoff put forward by commissioners of the top football conferences
"Wide open Austin what a move, Tavon Austin!" were the words of Mike Tirico as Tavon Austin juked a Clemson defender out of his shoes and marched down the field for his 4th touchdown of the historical night in Miami, Florida in which the 'Eers would have the most prolific bowl performance in FBS history.
Tavon Austin accounted for 123 yards receiving and a total of four touchdowns on that memorable night. What outsiders who only watched WVU on college football's biggest stage was that Tavon does this just about every single game.
Call me a bias West Virginia fan, but the facts don't lie. Austin averaged 91.2 receiving yards per game and ended the season with over 1,100 yards receiving in 2011. It doesn't stop there. Austin also led the nation in all-purpose yards averaging a total of 198 per game.

This could be the year. This could finally be what Mountaineer fans have been waiting for. This could finally be the season where West Virginia makes its case as a national title contender, and an eventual champion.
After wrapping up the 2011 season with a convincing 70-33 win over Clemson in the Orange Bowl, the Mountaineers quickly found themselves shifting their attention to 2012. Their inaugural season in the Big 12 conference will present many challenges but also the possibility for something very special.
In order for WVU to reach their ultimate goal, various dots have to be connected. The team, in and of itself, has many factors working in their favor. The offense is talented enough to keep the 'Eers is every game they play. The defense is a solid mix of experience and young, athletic play-makers that is expected to keep them in every contest.no comments
