Welcome back Valenth and hope you are hale and hearty. Your CFB posts are always interesting.

The only omission I see is Clemson in the ACC. Sleepers would be South Carolina, Nebraska, and Purdue. Muschamp has quietly assembled good talent at USC. Frost brings his magic to the Huskers while Brohm should continue Purdue's resurgence.

Alabama is a clear favorite to make the CFP with a bunch of two loss teams vying for the other three spots.

I think the following system works so much better for the CFP system:

8 team playoff

Top 4 ranked teams by the CFP Committee host the first round (bring some of the southern schools up north if thats how it shakes out and the committee ranking of the top 4 still matter. The hosting universities would make the profit on hosting the first round games.

The major bowls would host the 2nd round and the Championship game.

Winners of each Power 5 conference have automatic berth (make the conference championship worth what it used to be)
3 at large bids to be chosen by the CFP Committee (gives the Central Florida's of the world a chance to play while also taking the 2 second best teams from the power 5 conferences who lost in their conference championship game).

This also eliminates the down time of nearly 3 weeks between conference championship Saturday and the first Playoff game, while still giving the top 8 teams a good 2 weeks before the first playoff game to heal up.

I think that the NCAA will move toward this in the near future. It just makes too much sense.

To have 5 power conferences and 4 playoff spots is the dumbest thing the NCAA has ever done. They set themselves up for failure every year in the fact that the top teams from each power 5 conference could have the exact same record (no losses, one loss or even 2 losses) and the committee made up of humans would have to pick who to exclude from the top 4.

The current system makes no sense.

I totally agree Red! It is so stupid to only have 4 teams with 5 conferences. Unfortunately every time I see the chairman of the playoff committee being interviewed he acts like they are perfectly happy with 4 teams and no plans to change in the future. Probably take a team like Bammer to get left out then ol Nick would get the ball rolling.

We'll find out week one just how good FAU and Oklahoma are as they open with each other. I'm glad Lane Kiffin has a big mouth, that way the Sooners can drop some crap down it.

When you go to 8 you are very soon going to have to go to 16. Right now at 4 you haven’t totally messed up the bowl structure you begin to go past that. Then that is a lot of money that goes to NCAA and schools from all these companies for Bowl sponsorship. You get to 8. Now I am not sure how your going to make it work without blowup the current bowls.

No....you dont have to go to 16. Ever.

I just explained how it would work with 8 in my post. Read it.

It changes nothing to go to 8 as far as the current bowl system. You could actually increase the number of bowl sponsors because the first round of 8 teams could pick up additional bowl sponsors, although I still like the idea of having the top 4 host the first round. Get some of these southern schools coming up north and appease the committee so their top 4 rankings are still very important.

It would also mean mega $$$ for the top 4 ranked schools who would be hosting a first round game.

Good post Red, agree again! The main reason I have heard from the chairman and other people is they don't want to diminish the importance of the regular season. I get where they are coming from because the basketball regular season sucks! I don't think it would diminish it in football with 8 teams. There was some concern when they went to 4 teams it would but it didn't happen. As far as I'm concerned they could do away with them silly conference championship games and that would assure the regular season would remain important!

Ok don’t think you get my point. If you go to that many more teams. Then Poland weater is not going no to pay 600k to sponsor the Poland weed eater bowl. And a bunch of those bowls. Going to 8 would totally change the way the NCAA would have to look at dividing that money. Not so much for the power 5 maybe but for the mountain west and MAC and all the smaller conferences those conferences unless the NCAA just demanded each conference shared the bounty. Would basically break a part in football. I am not saying it is a bad thing. I am just saying it would be a thing.

Because your a sponsor do you want to put up a million for the 5th team in ACC vs Big 10 6 th place team. Or would or would you double that to get a first round game.

But with that being said I would be all for 16 teams getting in and scratching the current bowl system and go to a payout system similar to the NCAA tourney. I think you would bring in more total revenue. And have a much more meaningful December.

Heres the best playoff idea... 6 teams. 1 for Each Power 5 Conference and one at large for the Group of Five Conferences. Seeds 1 and 2 get Byes... 3 seed plays 6 seed and 5 seed plays 4 seed... Then you have the True final 4. That's my Top priority on a playoff redo.

100% agree. If it does expand, it should be this, and nothing else.

With conferences having 12 plus teams and 2 divisions how do you determine a conference champion if you don't have a conference championship game?

Just my opinion but I don't agree with the 6 team playoff. I don't like the idea of 2 teams getting a first round bye. Personally I would rather see it expanded to 8 teams. Play first round games at sites to be determined (no schools involved host games) mid December (after conference championship games). Final 4 and Championship games could be as they are now.

8 teams - 5 power conferences, 1 group of 5 if ranked in top 10 or 12 and 2 at large teams.
