There has been more and more talk about expanding the college football playoffs. Most people think 8 is the right number. I’m probably in the minority but I like it at 4. The point was never to allow every conference to participate. The point of going to 4 was to stop a year like 2004 where you had 3 undefeated major conference teams and Auburn didn’t get a shot to play for the title. Going to 4 means there will always be 2-loss teams playing and possibly even the occasional 3-loss team. Some people have issues with teams that don’t win their division making the playoffs like Bama in 2017 but if that team is clearly one of the 4 best teams then I don’t have a problem. The committee said from the beginning it will be the 4 best teams. A lot of people are struggling with that because they want to define the criteria. I don’t think you can with unbalanced schedules unless you want computers to decide everything and we’ve been there done that. I’d love to hear what others think. Do you like the idea of expanding and, if so, what number is the right number? Why do you want to expand or why do you not want to do so? Honestly, if we are going to expand I say just go to 16 and let’s do like basketball. Let every conference champion in (all 10 FBS conferences) and then have 6 at-large with some kind of RPI-like formula as an aid.
