I agree. I think 8 is best and will eventually happen.

So back in the days of Camelot, when Kellen Moore was your QB, would you have been one of the 8? What I don't want to see is a team like that get left just on the outside. You guys were a handful back in those days and it would've been fun to see that bunch in the CFP.

Mark it 8, Dude.

5 P5 champs

Highest G5 champ

2 At-Large

Get rid of the committee and use a transparent bcs type formula to pick the at-large and G5 and to seed them. 

First round games at the top 4 teams

Second Round games at a bowl site

Championship in an NFL stadium including cold weather sites.

Make more sense to go to 16 ALL conference champs and 5 at larges.

Nobody wants to see a 3 loss Pac South or B1G West team in the playoffs much less some 4 loss CUSA team. Not everybody gets a trophy or, in this case, a playoff berth.

Yeah, nobody wants to see the sh*thole they have now. They had to find a way to stack the deck, they couldn't just do it right from the beginning and now fan interest is in the dumps.

16.  A good MWC school might make it in.

Just not BSU.  Only real schools.

Absolutely not.  At best in any given season there are only 1-2 G5 teams that belong in a national championship playoff.

Push for 16 and they might give us 8.  Push for 8 and they might give us 6.  You always ask for more than you want.

I think 8 would be just about right and 16 too many.  The one thing I absoultely don't want to see is 6 or 12 where the higher seeded teams get a first round bye.  A bye is just too much of an advantage in college football.

You could say the same thing about the NCAA Basketball Tournament. Fact is, Cinderella possibilities are half the fun.

I've been saying 16 for over a decade. All 10 conference champs, best indy, 5 at-large. Play the CG on NYD.

And so are people tuning out rather than watch a 7-5 Troy team march into Ohio Stadium to get a plunger shoved up their ass.  The worst thing that could happen for the G5 is to be on the receiving end of a bunch of blowout losses. Put the best team in and see what happens and then go from there.

Come on Mike Leach, we all know the real reason there is not a 16 team playoff is because the corrupt NCAA has not figured out how to make the most profits

I only disagree on your timing.  I'm not trying to pretend that student athletes put much emphasis on the student part, but a more prolonged playoff schedule does accommodate finals a little better.  Also, I don't want one great CFB game on NYD.  I want four.  Play the elite 8 in the bowls on NYD, the final 4 a week later then a Monday night game for the big show.  The first round can be staggered, it doesn't all have to happen the same weekend.  It can, but it doesn't have to.

The only way I can see 16 is if you take away the Conference Championship games and convert that week into the first round of the playoffs. And that's not happening since it makes so much money for the conferences.

I can see 8.

Problem with 8 will be not enough at large bids if you give an auto bid to top G5. 10 with teams 7 and 10 and 8 and 9 doing “play-in” games is the way to go.

Having all 10 FBI Champions get auto berths would go a long way to leveling the field - but, those who benefit from the current system have no interest in making it fair.
