re: Expanded Playoffs At A Cost Of 11 Game Season?
What, around 120 teams would lose a game with this approach?

Yeah
I'll pass

An expanded playoff will only be useful 1 out of every like 10 years where there are more then 4 playoff caliber teams.

Expanding the playoff is worth giving up a garbage game against FCS directional state.

Can just as easily give up the conference championship games. Turn them into round 1, but match up conferences.

I would probably prefer that but do not care who they match with. As it is now, sometimes that is the only tough game for teams in certain conferences. Just let them have that first one be an OOC opponent.

How could anyone watch the Peach bowl and think the playoffs need expanding? Most of the semifinal games have been real snoozers.

If it means fewer games against cupcakes, I'm all for it.

In a perfect world, we'd have 8 9-team power conferences. Only way in the playoff is win your league, every conference has round robin play.

How you split the leagues, I don't care. And everyone plays major leagues OOC in an 11-game schedule. Then fans and boosters get big matchups at home that won't kill your playoff chances.

That'll never happen, but whatever they can do to beef up OOC scheduling should be No. 1 on the to-do list.

I agree.

Teams also need more credit for scheduling OOC games. If Oregon does not lose to Auburn, do they get in this year?
I do not know, but it certainly hurt them.

I kind of wish you got more credit for playing home and away as well. I love the neutral field games because it gives us some good ones to start the year, but I think it robs the fans of some of the classic home and away games that used to be so special.

I used to like neutral field games until the playoff era. Clemson's been fortunate to have success in this era, but that's a lot of travel to NFL stadiums that don't have much of a vibe.

Going down to Auburn was 10,000 times better than that year we played y'all in Atlanta.

I agree 100% about scheduling intent. It should be noted when a team has someone cancel a home-and-home so they have to play some lackey school to fill the hole, too.

Really Kirk?

You can name 8 teams worthy of a playoff every year?

You can name 8 teams worthy of the playoff in just a majority of years?

Because personally, I can't. We have a hard time finding **4** teams.

Now, this year, I will say I can think of a couple of teams that would have put up more fight than Oklahoma, but those teams probably should have been there IN PLACE of Oklahoma, not AS WELL as Oklahoma.

We've only had one playoff year where the majority of games were competitive (2017). Every other year, you have two games (sometimes all three) where the margin of victory is double digits.

But how do you determine who with whom?

& is a 14 team conf. allowed to play a 12/10 team group?

What about those with in-state rivalries from other conferences...how do they get sorted?

Expanded playoffs are not needed. System is working just fine. That would guarantee a weak ass, unworthy Texas, Notre Dame, Oklahoma every year.

Why expand when we can't find 4 deserving teams now?

You're basically trading a blowout during the Regular Season for a blowout during the 1st Round of the Playoffs

Only difference is that more eyeballs will be on the 1st rnd playoff blowout

Go to a 6 Team Playoff, with top 2 seeds getting Byes

Take the 4 Conf Champs from the 4 strongest Confs as Auto Qualifiers, then take the next 2 at-large Qualifiers based on final composite Rankings with a weight towards W-L record vs the best SoS

Just because the 4 Strongest Conference Champs are Auto Qualifiers doesn't guarantee them a Top4 Seed, for example ND or a 1-loss team that didn't make their Conf-CG could have a better SoS and get a higher seed than a Conf Champ theoretically

I put this caveat in to encourage P5 Programs to toughen up their Sked rather than water down their Sked to try and make the playoffs, this will create a huge incentive to get rid of scheduling FCS opponents

The 1st round would be #3vs#6 and #4vs#5, with the top 2 seeds on a bye waiting to play the winners with the top seed getting the lowest surviving seed

Simply manage the 21 day layoff after the Conf-CG and the 16 day layoff before the CFP Title Game and you won't have to make any significant changes to the P5 CFB Calenders

Easy peasy, but whatever you do do not guarantee all Conf Champs a playoff slot, there has to be an incentive to upgrade scheduling and protect the value of the Reg Season, guaranteeing playoff slots will make P5 Teams schedule more cupcakes and ruin the Regular Season

I agree. Also, expand it and give the higher seeds home field advantage. Huge $$$ potential in playoff games being played on campus

Could be good for Arkansas fans to be able to focus on basketball and baseball sooner
