Will playoff fix BCS problems?

Not surprisingly, Ohio State Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer is not happy with the BCS system. That's because, as has happened many times before, his undefeated team can do nothing to improve its No. 3 standing, short of watching and hoping for a loss by top-ranked Alabama and/or No. 2 Florida State. This will all be cleared up next year, when a four-team playoff takes hold. Or will it? "It's not a 64-team playoff; you can only have four guys," Meyer said. "What's that fifth team going to feel like?"
