With many teams/conferences withdrawing from competition this year, it's going to be an interesting race to the top. My bold prediction? Army is the only team to play enough games to be eligible for a bowl and wins the National Championship by default.

Army shut out Middle Tennessee, Navy got destroyed by BYU, and Air Force is too scared to play anybody other than the other academies. Who'd you watch this weekend?

each conference needs 1 playoff team and maybe add 2 at large bids. Wont change the outcome were currently seeing but atleast it will keep people more interested in the sport.

College footballís postseason is clearly broken.
Alabama was just too good this year. Didn't have a challenger.

That would be a better set up...maybe 8 teams total.


But then the bowls would have to agree. Lots of money there. Maybe this year is a way to get rid of some of the bowl games that suck. Then get rid of the dead time in Dec.

I am not saying I have a better answer

Adding more teams adds the chance for upsets.

I’m hoping the Oklahoma Florida game adds a second look into this current system.

Alabama beat in the final rankings #2, #4, #5, #7 and #12 teams.

College football has become predictable and boring.

The same teams get the top recruits each year and most coast through the season until the playoffs begin, which once again are boring and predictable.

If the same 4 to 6 teams out of 120 are in the playoffs each year, why bother watching?

It is the same as it ever was. Miami, Oklahoma, Notre Dame, and Penn St in the 1980s. Nebraska, Florida, Florida St, and Tennessee in the 1990s. USC, Texas, Ohio St, and Florida in the 2000s. Bama, Clemson, Ohio St, and Oklahoma in the 2010s.

That's not really true. There were multiple teams in the 80's that won the National Championship and while some of those teams were always Top 10, there wasn't the blatant monopoly on talent as we're seeing today. They also had different offenses in which some teams were known as passing teams while others were strictly running teams.

Today, if you don't have a potential First Round QB as your starter, you're definitely not in the national conversation as the best team in the country.

Not really. I've seen this posted around as a solution, but that's not how college football has ever worked. There are 2-3 teams that are always better than everyone else every year. You never reach the end of the season and think "hmmmm you know the sixth place team really could have won an 8 team tournament". Even if a miracle happened and the 8 beat a 1, the 8 is never going to be good enough to win another 2 games over top teams. This isn't the NFL. This isn't ncaa basketball where someone can just get hot from deep. I guess it gives fans something to cling to, just making it, but you're(not you specifically just any particular fan base)delusional if you think making it as a 7 seed actually give you any hope for a real title.

Adding more teams is an insanely dumb idea. 5-8 have zero chance at winning the title. ZERO.

No but they have a chance of beating 3-4. It also adds more good games to the season. You also have no idea if itís possible until it happens.

It also increases the chances of some 4-5 star athletes to go to other schools to start, rather than go to Alabama to be a backup.

Really whatís the downside of expanding the playoffs? An SEC school gets upset? ND maybe wins one game?

That's complete fantasy there.
