    Right now the PlayOFFs stand for something. It's not enough to play a tough conference schedule but play a tough schedule with a great OC game. Baylor didn't get in with that Bullshit, lame ass OC schedule. UCF didn't get in a was punished, rightfully so for playing cupcakes.

    I love seeing tOSU playing OU, texASS. Bama playing USC, FSU. Clemson playing aTm. Auburn playing UW. If OU could get in playing a weakass schedule, then hell lets move to G6. Win every game, rest players the 2nd half and gear up for the playoffs.
    So make the regular season bullshit or have GREAT games all season. Fuck no I do not want an expansion. I have loved watching OU play Bama, OSU, ND, FSU,Tenn, Miami, UO and UW. As a fan, it's great to have storied programs come into Norman and play. Go on the road and see these stadiums, their fans, their traditions.
    Go to 8 and why take the chance.

    I will say that, I don't like the idea of wild cards/ play-in games or byes for that matter. I don't care how well a team does throughout the season, the whole point is to win the game... every time. No rhyme, reason, or need for every team not to play the same number of games.

    That's only because it is fact lol.

    NCAA tourney gets more eyes and najes more money period stop

    Yes it has more teams and more games but that's the point of expansion . More playoff games . If you think it's cool a farrr more popular sport ( CFB ) gets less views and money than CBB that's on you

    I wouldn't object to a 6-team playoff, with the top two teams getting a first-round bye; but I am against going to 8 or more teams.

    The NCAA tourney does bring in a lot of money - but much of it is at the expense of the regular season, which is much less important than it used to be. With the exception of a handful of programs like Duke, Kansas, North Carolina & Kentucky - which all have rabid fan bases - many college basketball programs don't draw like they did 10, 15 or 20 years ago.

    The NCAA gets no money from CFB.

    If it goes to 8 and all P5 champions are selected and you're bitching about not being in the playoffs ... fuck off

    There will always be a #8 and #9. The NCAA Tourney has 68 teams now and people who are 69 and 70 whine.

    Before the bowl games, Michigan would have had a (very) slight chance at the playoffs, but it should have been the P5 winners and Notre Dame, UCF and Georgia.

    True. It's definitely a trade off

    Before I respond to this I will say that I'm in favor of expanding the playoff to 6 or 8 simply to add some sort of auto-bid and remove the dumbass committee from the equation as much as possible.

    That said, bringing up the FCS playoff structure isn't the best argument to make here. They did exactly what you don't want to happen in FBS. They over-expanded the playoff to the point where too many teams get it. 16 was probably right at the FCS level but they now have 24 which creates first round "bid to host" games.They also add in a regional element to how the bracket is constructed to keep teams from the same conference from playing in the championship game against each other. It's pretty fucking stupid and they didn't even do it for the money because nobody watches the first 3 rounds and their championship game probably brings in fewer fans and dollars than 90% of bowl games.

    The one thing I do like about the FCS system is auto-bids for conference champions.

    Just out of curiosity; did anyone vote "Nay" but posted that they would be fine with 6 or 8 or whatever simply because they didn't want it to go overboard? I ask because I have seen many comments that are very specific in that they do not want it to go beyond 6 or 8 teams, which is fine.

    Just in case for clarification, this was meant for ANY expansion beyond the current 4 teams.

    No it doesn't bring in more money. Do a little homework before making ignorant statements.

    How Much Money Do College Sports Generate?

    The average college football team makes more money than the next 35 college sports combined

    Agree 6-8 with set criteria. Remove the committee and question marks from the equation. Higher competition get the ratings and interest back up. Actual football imo

    Let's get rid of conference championship week and expand to 8, conference championship week is mostly a boring, irrelevant waste of time anyway.

    We're still going to get the same teams in the championship but might as well make the journey more fun

    Having auto bids in the CFP would be awful. Neither division champ from the Pac-12 deserved a playoff bid this year; and if Northwestern had knocked off Ohio St. in the Big 10 or Pitt had beaten Clemson in the ACC, that would have been more unworthy teams entering the playoffs. The playoffs should go to the teams that deserve to be there, not to those who just happened to luck out in one or two key games. Auto bids work in the lower classes because those schools have fewer scholarships to give (which means they are more susceptible to ups & downs due to injuries) & play fewer crossover games from outside their region (which makes it harder to rate them on a national scale). There's no need to fix what ain't broken.

    I like the 4-team format, but would be open to 6. I voted "no" based on that principle. I would not be for 8 teams or auto-bids. There are usually not more than 5 or 6 teams worthy of consideration, anyway; and 3 or 4 of those teams always seem to be a notch above the rest.

    If set criteria is just "be a member of a power-5 conference & win your conference, and/or be the highest-ranked group of 5 team," then, no thanks. It just makes it easier for mediocre teams to crack the playoffs.

    Sometimes, you might get the same teams; but other times you will get two or three teams that don't deserve to be there. Auto-bids would tend to water down the field & make the selection process much less interesting.

    Definitely needs to be expanded to 8 teams....P5 Champions and the next 3 best teams by rankings..That way some of these meaningless bowls get so go go juice back into them..
