I’m running back one more Luka O 47.5 PAR. I think he hits again tonight, Vegas pushes it to 48.5-49.5 for next game and that’s the time to fade it.
Oh that lakers game just took me sideways

Get it. Im in points. And if he hits points he should hit the total.

Wonder how much longer Boeheim sticks around. He has two of his kids this coming season, could be his last too? Tough to guess, he just keeps on going. Been on campus since 1962, lol (well, with a brief gap when he played semi-pro ball, back on campus by 1969).

anyone see the rumors on CFP playoff expansion? Seems like a 12 teamer is growing some legs. will say with this model would make all games matter as no one will risk a loss and falling out of a bye in round 1 or a home game in round 1.

I saw, I believe, Cowherd talking about it this morning. The committee or whatever it was that was looking into it is said to have recommended a 12 team playoff.

Personally, I think 8 is plenty...but I'm never one to complain about more football. lol

I also like 8. 12 will devalue the conference championship games. If two teams walk into a championship game ranked 3 and 5. The result doesn’t matter for much outside of seeding. Both teams are likely to get into the playoff. I also read that they’re giving autobids to the 6 highest rated conference champs. That could also be a problem. That window should be capped at 16 in the rankings. The 23rd ranked team in the nation shouldn’t get a bid because they won a conference that only produced one ranked team.

There is no legitimate downside to expansion. It is past time.

Agree. What I find funny is that the problems with a 4 team playoff were so easy to see...and they went with it anyway.

See, that is a good thing.

The conference championship won’t be devalued because the teams care about winning it.

What sucks is when power conference champs don’t get to play, or when there are 2-3 great teams from a single conference or that really good undefeated non power school.

12 lets all those teams get in AND provides an advantage for the top seeds.

Win win.

I think you can accomplish the same thing with:
8 team playoff
Auto bids for 5 power conference champs
2 at large bids from power 5
1 highest ranked small conference champion as long as they finish top 12 in the rankings. If they finish outside of 12 an extra at large is at play for a P5 non/conference champion.

One point we agree on is that expansion is what we should all be looking for. 4 is not enough.

8 is better than 4 for sure.

I guess what I like best about 12 is the bye. Maybe 10 as a compromise? Byes for top 2 seeds?

your concern is why have 12. Seeding would be huge. wouldn't 3 and 5 be fighting to remain top 4 and get the bye?

I've only heard autobids for all P5 champs and highest ranked G5 team (I would expect there to be minimum....maybe top 15 or better?).

I once thought 8 was a must. after seeing it at 4 I could understand keeping it there. No doubt a lot on these kids to have to win another game after already going through 2 tough games. But I can see the logic behind 12. (and 8 sounds good, too)..and like you, wont complain about more good games.

while I do see the merit in a 12 team CFP, I'd be down with yours. 12 or 8 I'd love to see first round at home of top 4 seeds in that round. That should also make all teams keep fighting until the end to earn a home game.
