Interesting process excuse me guess work. We start a #7 seed but gone quickly.

Ditto, but I'm a lil salty that they think 2018 Baylor + Jalen Hurd would beat 2018 USC though.

If McClendon and Werner can fix the offense we are a top 15 team. Put Jake in position to succeed and donít run the same screen play to Bryan 6 times a game.

If we were going to actually have a 64 team playoff, IMO we would need to:
1. move the scholarship limit up to 100 and
2. allow RedShirts to play in the post-season without costing them a year of eligibility
3. open the door for more bowl/post-season sponsors.

You would be talking about adding 6 more games to the 2 Championship Game teams, AND a total of 63 Total Post-Season Games. (last year there were 41 bowl games.)

Personally, I think a field of 64 and 6 rounds of playoffs is TOO much. I would advocate for 8 teams for the playoff. You could have your P5 Champions and 3 At-Large bids. I think that's fair and will create a good field of elite competition. I would not ever go above 16 teams for the CFB Playoffs though, but I could see an arguement for it, especially when you have a Boise ST or UCF team that goes 13-0 or 12-1 and deserves a bid, but most likely wouldn't get one even in a 8 team playoff.

In a Plus8 model, I don't think we need to change any scholarship or redshirt rules, but in a Plus16 I think we would need to change the limits/rules.

I agree that 64 is too many but I think there could definitely be more than 8 teams. I think 16 teams with 10 conference champions and 6 at large bids would be a solid set up.

Agreed that 64 is too many. Only thing I'd change in your 8 team format is one of your at large teams would come from the Group of 5.
5 - Power 5
1 - Highest ranked Group of 5
2 - At large

64 team playoff would last like 6 weeks. That's another half of a season.

This is what I was thinking. Have the first round at the higher seed's home field, but make it a "neutral site" game. Then proceed with the rest how it already is.

So this past year it would have looked like this:

1. Clemson
2. Oklahoma
3. Georgia
4. Ohio State
5. USC
6. Alabama
7. Wisconsin
8. UCF

P5 conference champions are the Top 5, then you have two at-large bids, then Non-P5 at the bottom. I put Alabama at #6 so that it would mean the National Championship would have been in the first round. Make things more exciting.

Our hypothetical matchup / result in this article is Example A on why this FPI that ESPN spews out is a bunch of garbage.

Baylor, a team that went 1-11 last year...lost at home to Liberty...only win was against a 1-11 Kansas...is supposed to be the #40 team in the country in 2018 cuz of the addition of 'all about me, I quit' Jalen Hurd...and beat USC??/??

They mention 2 Baylor players, and not once mention Deebo - who is more than likely a Top 10 player in the country...smh.



I have to remember, it's silly season for these no talent clowns employed at Bristol...try again to be relavant in your reporting Rittenburg, Dinich, Schlabach, Maisel, etc...

Not worth giving them the click...save your time.

Regarding the playoff...5 conference champions & 1 wild card...Top 2 teams get a bye...keep it simple.

GO COCKS!!

That's what they do for women's basketball and college baseball. It's a home game for the fans, but they don't allow all the normal home game nuances. If this were to happen, I feel like that's the route they'd take.

I Dont like it because there would never ever truly be the top 16 teams in the country. You would have more than a few conference champions with no business being in the final 16.

I think you Make p5 conferences the only autos and at large the rest with a max of 2 at larges per conference. That would give each p5 conference a possibility of 3 teams.

I think 8-16 teams is the sweet spot. Maybe a 10 team bracket in which the top 6 teams get a bye and the 4 bottom teams having to play their way into the 2nd round. That would give the power 5 champions and the best overall non-power 5 team a bye and the remaining 4 at large teams playing an extra game to earn their spot to the final eight.

The hit on Jalen Hurd in the USC gam is why he is no longer a rb...what position do they have him playing? If it is RB, the writer is dumb as hell as he isntrying to be a wr and i would love him to meet one of our safeties across the middle again

Lets just get rid of the regular season all together, because it's not going to mean anything anyway, and just have a big ol' huge playoff. If you win, great! But if you lose, you have a 1 game season ... BRILLIANT!!!!!

Keep everything how it is, but expand to 8 teams. Beyond 8 teams you'll start having teams with 3 losses, and a 3 loss team isn't the best team in the nation. Top 8 teams, you'll probably have a team or two with 2 losses (which I'm still not sure should be considered for the National Title), but mostly you'll have the teams that were at the top the entire year and may have had a bad game due to injuries or what not. This is the only way to do it without watering down the playoffs, but also including everyone that truly deserves the shot.
