NCAA Football Tournament??

Every year at this time, we get the talk of a playoff in College Football.  The BCS takes its hits and keeps right on going.  There are whispers that school presidents are actually discussing a +1 format, which in my opinion would be welcomed by everyone.  I am still a proponent of a 16 team playoff that is utilized at other levels, but I know that is a pipe dream.  Want even a bigger pipe dream?  What if...College Football had a tournament to match their basketball counterparts in March? 

What if...College Football had a 64 team tournament?
