The main reason they say is because teams can't play games within a couple of days or so. They need a week between games. That does not leave enough time for a very big bracket. 16 teams might work if all of the current bowl games were utilized, but that still leaves a week for 8 to 4 and then a week for 4 to 2 and then a championship game. In fairness to the BCS, I think there would only be a few times that a different outcome would have happened anyway.
