RE: CFP committee kills off Cinderella
The answer is to flip the season. Right now the P5 plays mostly G5 before the season starts but then don't want to play them at the end of the season. Change it to everyone in Div 1A (or whatever it is called now) plays one team from Div 1AA and one team from another conference as a sort of "preseason" and then conference play starts. Everyone, even the worst team in a league, at least then gets 10 games which is what it used to be back in the day.

The P5 sends the league champion and then one team of their choosing to the "playoff". The G5 sends their league champion and there is one at large spot for whomever giving you 16 teams. Divide the 16 teams into pods of 4, which plays a round robin. The winners of the pods then start a 4 team playoff.

The two teams in the championship game would then have played a total of 16 games, which really is not that much given the current environment. The real selling point of this would be the vast amount of money which this would generate, which would be WAY more than the current amount due to the shear volume of games which have impact on who is crowned the NCAA football champion. Even the greedy P5 would have to see the $$$ here.

By the way, I am not guaranteeing any of my numbers are correct, I just thought of this on the spot.

Gee, anyone see any parallels between this statement and our economic system?

I have issues with the Big 10 strength of schedule argument. Beating Illinois, Indiana, Purdue, Minnesota, Rutgers, Maryland and Iowa are not quality wins. When a MAC team beats these schools, it's shrugged off as "well that's Nebraska and they're not very good" When another Big 10 beats those schools the media ranks them in the Top 10

Throw away athletic conference altogether and institute "promotion and regulation" system similar to European soccer leagues. Two divisions of 60 teams where football teams only play other teams within its division.

That "system" you proposed though, Kittonhead, is completely asinine.

I think most agree, the absolutely perfect scenario would be an 8 team playoff with 1 G5 slot. Man that would be entertaining

I agree.

And what it would do is permit schools like say Boise, UCF, and WMU (oops, they've regressed already), to take the next step forward.

If a recruit has an opportunity to play for UCF they could pass up bigger name schools because of the opportunity UCF might offer.

It might lead to a super program in a number of G5 conferences. And would make the G5 football better and more interesting.

I would like a G5 play-in round where the winner of it advances.

I'd hate to see an 8 team playoff and the G5 team in the first round faces Alabama. We already see 1 / 16 mis-matches in March Madness.

Or a 6 team playoff with two teams given a bye and the other four play each other to advance. One of the six would be a G5 or independent.

While the Go5 (formerly "Non AQ") conferences have been making steady headway ever since the low spot of access represented by the first version of the BCS, I worry that a guaranteed Go5 spot in an 8-school playoff may be a step too far.

So I'm thinking the way that the Go5 sneak it in is as an "Best of Independents / Go5 champions" spot, in which case it is "Best Go5 champion primarily if they can beat out Notre Dame (secondarily BYU)"

If you want the 'perfect' scenario imo it'd be a twelve-team playoff in which all conference champs plus two at-large teams get in, where the top four seeds have byes with the first round played at home with major bowl sites for the remaining games. But that has no shot of happening.

The only thing that might help is if people stop watching and attending bowl games

People have stopped attending, but they continue to watch.

Would this scenario work with 16 teams? If there were 6 at large openings, and most/all of these slots went to P5 conferences as you would expect, then most P5 conferences would have 2 horses in the race as opposed to the Mac's one. Might seem more "fair" to them by their currently crooked standards, but at least we'd have better access.
