How many losses are you expecting each team should only loses in order to make the playoff in the 12-team playoff?

2 loss p5 teams are pretty much a lock.

3 loss teams depending on sos and name, they'll likely run out of 2 loss teams before 12.

You can probably even get a 4 loss team in there if the 4th loss is something like LSU this year, where the 4th loss would be in the conference championship game, against a really good team etc.

The crying will be about 100 times worse than now when it comes to people claiming bias etc. Because by the time you get to that 12th team, there are 5-10 teams that will claim they should have been there.

Wait until the SEC puts 5 or 6 in those playoffs. Then the cry will be to expand it to 24. Just wait and see.

LSU only has 3 losses but should get the 4th after the conference championship game.

Those 3 would be locks you'd think. But you would have to consider Ole Miss and LSU, Especially if LSU won the conference Championship game.
Which is think may go by the wayside. Regular season is going to be even more important.

I would say no. Expanding the playoff is about getting other conference champs into the mix. Or runners-up from P5 conferences in. I think 2 from a single conference will be the max.

Yeah, that would be the 4th loss. I don't think a 5 loss team would ever make it.

I doubt that will allow a 4- loss LSU in the playoff. No way we see many 4-loss teams from other conferences that is in second or third place. Most will have 1 or two losses and you want to add a 4-loss over a 2-loss from another conference or two? I know 12-team playoff is a lot, but most other conferences should have plenty of teams that have 1 or 2 losses the most. more than enough to get those in to fill out the teams. I think best scenario is go by the final ranking of the list of teams from 1 to 12.

I think it would be conditional. By the time you get to the 12th team, the standards are not that high.

What's going to matter is how tough a schedule they played, who they beat and who they lost too.

So I think this year with the loss to A&M, you are probably right. That loss really hurts them. But lets say it was to Alabama instead, but still in OT like the game was this year, and maybe the Tennessee loss is closer etc. Then it's a different story.

Playing Georgia this weekend is going to be minimal penalty if any, because they aren't expected to win that game, and no 12th place team would be expected to.

LSU would get in as one of the top 6 conference champions if they win the SEC Title game. Then the other 3 would get in b/c of their CFP ranking. They'd probably end up hosting a game as the #4 Champ in fact.

I think 3-4 is the number, we'd probably get about 35 teams in the playoff over the first 10 years if they don't expand it again to 16 or 24.

This is true, but it's also why I think AQ status shouldn't be given.

They likely make it into the top12 anyway if they did that, but it should still be done on merit, not AQ status.

Another plus with this is nearly all players won't opt out of the postseason if their team is in the playoffs. For instance we've probably seen the last of Bryce Young & Will Anderson along with so many great ones around the country.

most years they will probably try to get 2 from each P5 conf. that's 10 teams, then add the one G5 team, leaving one spot left. So 3 max most years.
