Anyone who says that expanded playoffs prevents a few programs from having a chokehold on the top spots doesn't follow FCS.

But they have an actual playoff in FCS, like pretty much every sport other than FBS college football.

Membership in FBS is strictly voluntary, and every program that chooses to be in FBS rather than FCS participates in FBS with complete awareness that the NCAA has ceded the FBS postseason to the CFP and the bowl games, as part of an unspoken agreement that the big boys will stay in the NCAA, and put up with the NCAA's BS in all other sports, as long as they can run the football postseason.

That doesn't mean it makes sense.

I think it does. There is zero doubt that whoever wins the CFP has had the best season and is therefore the rightful champ.

Zero doubt? C'mon

It makes sense that the programs with influence don't want the NCAA siphoning the money out of the football postseason like the NCAA siphons the money out of the basketball postseason.

It's a choice between
(a) playing football in the part of Division I that has a 24-team playoff, or
(b) playing football in the part of Division I that includes programs like Ohio State and Alabama, knowing that the postseason structure is determined by a consensus among programs like Ohio State and Alabama.

I like the idea of a 24-team playoff, but it's not going to happen in FBS in my lifetime if ever.

Sorry, but you are talking about colleges, not professional teams. That is another thread.

16 means this year's Iron Bowl was worthless. 8 means Auburn ended Alabama's season.

You don't want to get to a point where teams are sitting starters during rivalry weekend. That's supposed to be the pinnacle of the regular season.

We usually don't have 4 deserving teams in the CFP now. Why in the hell does anyone want to expand to 8? When we have 8 teams that compete without getting blown out and which keep a solid team from risking injury in a mop up game, maybe we can discuss this. But right now on any given year we've been lucky to have 2 schools that actually belong in the CFP. And semifinal blow outs have been the norm and the Clemson / Ohio State and Georgia / Oklahoma games the exception.

I would agree if the quote "SOS" was not put into play. What was the strength of the ACC.

My biggest problem is the people making the decision is what, 13 people? As far as I am concerned, the BCS was just as good.

Nobody outside Columbus believed Ohio St. would win in 2014.

^^^ THIS ^^^

IMO, too many people focus on who is "NOT deserving" of a playoff spot, when they should really be focusing on the risk of missing out on a team like 2014 Ohio State! That's the REAL reason to expand the playoffs - to make sure we aren't missing the team which would've won it all on the field if given the chance.

All these feeds and all I want is the crowd noise with no announcers but for the crowd mic to be close to Orgeron so it fades constantly between the crowd and Coach O's gravel laden creole accent.

I wonder if this at some point evolves into a Chipotle-style presentation where you pick the camera angles, announcing teams, stat overlays, things like that, and create your own broadcast experience.

Nobody in the NFL has to "make a case" for anything. They settle it on the field.

In one game. Why not a best of 3? Playoffs are just as arbitrary a way to determine a champ as the method FBS uses. Just look at MLB. The winner of the AL and NL just went to the world series.
