    It’s as much a part of college football’s BCS system as its bowls: The squabbling over who gets to play for the national title.  Now, the system used to determine the finalists is set to change.

    FOX News Radio’s Chris Hoenig reports:

    Audio clip:

    Then-President-elect Obama made his thoughts clear back in 2009.

    (2009: President-elect Obama) “You’ve heard my pitch. ((Reporters: “Who’s #1?//Who’s #1?)) That’s why we need a playoff.”

    And playoffs it is.  A committee of university Presidents, approving a plan for a four-team playoff starting in 2014.  BCS Commissioners introduced the plan, which uses a selection committee to seed the top four Division I teams, similar to the way college basketball’s “March Madness” brackets are drawn up.

    The #1-seed plays the #4-seed, and #2 plays #3, in semifinals that will be a part of the Bowl Championship system.  The national championship will be hosted by the highest bidding city.
