"...I had zero interest in the national title game this season because of the 16 days in between. Too much time and my interest dwindled by the time the game got here. Plus, I’m sick of seeing Clemson vs. an SEC team every year. Every year since 2016 has featured Clemson and/or the SEC in the title game and it’s gotten really tiresome. Time for an eight team playoff to change things up a bit. Maybe there would be more random results in the quarterfinal round, therefore creating different matchups in the title game...."

Instead of giving LSU the easy path to the championship, they should've made LSU/Clemson the semifinal in Atlanta and let Ohio State play Oklahoma in the Fiesta. Maximum ticket value in the Peach, plus a guaranteed new conference in the final.

Why? To make it easier on Clemson? Give me a break. LSU deserved the #1 seed and Clemson was clearly the #3 seed. Clemson didn't deserve to get to play close to home.

And hey while we were at it, why not have the CFP pressure the ACC into allowing Notre Dame to play Florida in the Orange Bowl instead of sad-sack UVA? That would have boosted ratings too.
