No duh, of course he'd be against it. It will spread the 5 star recruits among 10-12 schools instead of 3-4. And Clemson is one of the 3-4.

Haha, conveniently forgetting that Clemson beat the Luckeyes 4-5x in a row. Usually in a blowout.

The topic came up when Swinney fielded a question about College Football Playoff expansion, which he is — and has always been — against.

“As far as I’m concerned, whatever the rules are, we’re going to get our team ready to go play and compete, and if it’s 12 teams, hopefully we can compete to be one of them. (Same) if it’s 25. If they break off and have a Premier League, and if you don’t do well enough you get relegated to the other league, I don’t know — isn’t that what they do in soccer?” he said.
“Maybe we should do that. Maybe we should have a 40-team Premier League with a 12-team Playoff, and if you stink you get relegated to the other level or something.”

Swinney’s main stated opposition to an expanded field is that it puts too much emphasis on the Playoff and discredits anything shy of competing for a national title. He said he misses the days of it meaning something when a team finished in the Top 25 and/or won a bowl game.

He isn't wrong. 128 team playoff or 130 team premier league season. 129 game season that will only take a decade to complete. Genius!

I see his point. Teams should definitely be able to opt out of the playoff in any given year if they feel like they'll be playing too many games.

Ohio State opted out of half the season and made the playoffs. Shouldn't Clemson be able to pick the 6 games they'd like to play too?

They already only play half a season, as they have an ACC schedule.
