Will Ohio State out trigger a move to 8-team playoff?
I've thought all along that there wouldn't be a push to move beyond a 4-team playoff as long as the B1G and SEC, the only conferences that truly matter, were OK with the status quo.

But the B1G champ getting excluded while the SEC gets two in? Can you imagine the fury and exasperation at B1G Headquarters right now?

This might cause the B1G to be galvanized to demand a model that guarantees their champ a playoff spot, which would mean 8 teams.

Possible?

The B1G would be doing quite well with an eight team playoff and no AQs:

#1 Clemson vs #8 TBA (likely USC over an idle Penn State) - Sugar
#4 Alabama vs #5 Ohio State - Rose
#2 Oklahoma vs #7 Auburn - Las Vegas or Holiday
#3 Georgia vs #6 Wisconsin - Peach

I think the Citrus Bowl would be promoted to a quarterfinal, with perhaps a newly upgraded Las Vegas Bowl or Holiday as the fourth “western” bowl in the New Year’s Eight.

4 team playoff screw jobs will make discussion about an 8 team playoff possible.

An 8 team playoff though will require winning 3 games against elite competition to claim a title though. Three games to mobilize the fanbase. P5 conferences already play a regular season of mostly elite competition plus a conference championship game.

What they should move to IMO is a point system where they give points for different outcomes instead of a committee. Keep things objective.

5 points: Major victory over winning FBS competition (15 plus points)
4 points: Victory over winning FBS competition
2 points: Close loss over winning FBS competition
1 points: Large loss over winning FBS competition

If the system was set up this way, how opponents fared would matter. Also incentivizes scheduling up because you only get playoff points by playing good teams.

Schedule could benefit the AAC since their overall records are pretty close to the P5 level.

At the end of the contract, yes. PAC, XII and now B1G have all tasted the humiliation of being left out. I don't think ACC has, but I'm too busy to google right now.

If UCF wins, that makes the case for the G5 Access Bowl spot to convert to an autobid.

But the CFP contract lasts in some cases beyond the length of P5 TV contracts.

Is the P5 then going to deal with the 4 team playoff by becoming a P4? If OU was in the B1G that gives the B1G a program in the playoff. TCU and Texas would add some depth to the PAC.

I think we are looking at a P4 with the B12 the new tweener with Col St, BYU, Houston, Memphis ect. with enough fans to hold down a contract bowl. This will lessen pressure to expand G5 access to the system.

G5 at the moment has conference membership of 10, 12, 14. They'll probably end up 10-12 to split money less ways...P5 will all be 14,16 to maximize inventory.

I kinda like this, but its too simple. What you're saying is a win over 7-5 UTEP by 55 points equals the same over a 17 point win over 10-2 USC? Don't think so.

It always should have been the top 8 seeded teams playing 4 New Years Day Bowls. Bid semis and finals to highest bidder.

Possible?

Big 10 champs have now been left out 2 years in a row. It was the Big 12 champs in years 1 and 3 and the Pac 12 champs in 2 and 4.

No, but I do think we need to go back to the BCS rankings. Use all data points possible. The BCS started screwing up when they pulled margin of victory. This is football not soccer, your suppose to trample the weak and walk over the dead. 03-wink
