Default College Football Playoffs

Why pick between Alabama and Ohio St?

Stick them in the first bowl game and let them play it out for the 4 seed. How much fun would that be?

====================================

I think the overall format has to be changed to give everyone a chance. Something like this makes sense to me:

Every year the quarter finals are on New Years:

Orange:

Winner of Big 12 title game (OU)
vs
Winner of ACC title game. (Clemson)

Rose
Winner of Big 10 title game (OSU)
vs
Winner of Pac 10 title game (USC)

Sugar

Winner of SEC title game (GA)
vs
Winner of AAC title game. (UCF)

Fiesta

Winner of Cotton Bowl (played Xmas day)
Winner of Holiday Bowl (played Xmas day)

The semi final is played the week after new years.

There is a one week break, the week that the NFL has their conf title games.

The college football championship is played the NFL off week, the week before the superbowl. Rotating sites. You could have it the same location as the superbowl, giving the host city 2 weeks of revenue, and all the reporters and scouts are already there. (Or just have it in Las Vegas every year).

The Outback, Citrus, Peach, and Sun bowls now host the at large teams that play into the Cotton and Holiday, and are played the weekend before christmas.

You can put the winners of the Mountain West, Sun Conference, Mac etc in those play in games, along with teams like Alabama, Wisconsin, Notre Dame, Stanford, etc.

14 teams total make the dance.

The Orange, Rose, and Sugar basically go back to their historical matchups, on NEW YEARS DAY, with way more significance... and you would build some nasty rivalries, with teams like Clemson and OU seeing alot more of each other.

This format would basically give everyone a shot. Win your conference title game, and you have a spot in the dance, somewhere.

This would give a team like UCF a chance to play for the title. I agree, they don't have much chance against GA, but if the winner of the AAC goes 12-0,and you think they have no shot at winning a national championship, then what is that conference doing in the same league?

If you aren't going to give the non-power 5 conference teams a shot, then why not split them off as another division, and give them their own playoffs?

As it stands, the Arkansas States, and UCF's of the worlds, don't get any chance at playoffs. It makes no sense.

Its probably about the power 5 conference teams wanting that leverage in recruiting.

the whole idea of going from 2 to 4 was to eliminate the 2 or 3 debate. they've done that. no doubt about the top 3 teams and could you imagine the old way where they'd decide between OU and Geo? I really don't care about who is #4, and no need for more games. I like the season long drama of the 4 teams.


I really don't think it's about recruiting, its about money

Div III has their own playoffs.
Div II has their own playoffs.
FCS 1-A has their own playoffs.

Big boy football, FBS POWER 5, has their own 4 team playoff.

What playoff is there for 80% of FBS div 1 schools?

UCF, Boise St, etc, can finish 12-0, and not even a thought of inviting them. Why isn't the power 5 it's own division? UCF has a perfect season and doesn't even crack the top 10.

So UCF's reward for going 12-0 is a meaningless bowl game, against some P5 that's disappointed to be there?

I know what you're saying BBQ, and I agree, by having 4 teams, you are definitely including the best 2. And, in terms of entertainment, and quality of play, it really doesn't get any better than the last 2 national championship games.

But why do you have a level of play, that at the first snap of the season, the conference winners have zero shot at going to a playoff?

Mac, Mountain, AAC, Sun Belt, etc, have zero shot at going to any playoffs? Why don't they have their own division? FBS tier 2, or whatever.

Under what circumstance would a UCF get to go to a playoff game under the current format?

I've played sports my whole life, including a little JC ball. I play for the love of the sport, but leagues with playoffs are way more fun.

You have a D2 and D3 playoffs, because those teams cannot compete with D1. If the non P5 schools have no shot to advance to the playoffs, they should have their own division, and a separate set of playoffs. Both the players and the fans deserve it.

College BB, every team has a shot at the playoffs. College Hockey, same thing. Why would college football have roughly 60 teams with no shot at ever going to any playoff, regardless of how good they are?

Would have to schedule monster non conference teams and go 12-0. Would need power 5 and at least 1 that finishes top 10.

Yes, it is a joke. Not for the power 5. I don't feel bad for Ohio State. But the non power 5 are in a league where they have no legitimate chance to compete for a championship. That's fake division I.

those same power 5 conferences stack the deck against mid majors every year in basketball. they match some of the best teams against each other and let them knock themselves off.

I'm fine with a power 5 division and another level for the other conferences you mention. The 1AA playoffs create no season drama for the top teams. Each week of the last few weeks D1 has had upsets and teams getting knocked off. I liked it. How many regular season games become meaningless because you want to reward the once every 5 year really good lower division D1 school?

Whenever we have had a Boise St, Utah, UCF etc, have a great year, they have no shot at a title, and instead, get paired with a P5 school, that faltered down the stretch, and couldnt give a rats ass about playing in their bowl game. Is Auburn supposed to get up for a game against UCF? It would have been fun to give UCF a shot... and yes, i know they would be 17 point dogs to Clemson. Nevertheless, Bama had their shot, what shot did UCF get?
