Is there room for 6 or 8 in the CFB Playoff?
The majority of college football fans probably would agree that the new College Playoff structure trumps the BCS by a mile.
But still, many college football fans that don’t think it’s enough. They want a bigger playoff with more teams.
Is there room for six or eight in the CFB Playoff?
There is a simple answer. Yes.
Bowl season just isn’t what it used to be. It seemed like a cluster of games that no one really cares about except the teams involved and their fans. Sure, there were a few big plays and exciting finishes.
But they didn’t mean a thing other than the players getting hooked up with some swag and the schools getting a little extra cash in their pockets.
How much different were the feelings associated with the two big semifinal games? It was night and day.
The CFB Playoff doesn’t need to go overboard, but could easily add four more teams. The drama would be great. What if Houston had a chance to play Clemson? We all love the underdog story. Or if Ohio State climbed back and made a run for a second-straight national title? SEC fans would hate it, but the ratings would soar.
Every other sport has a multi-team playoff. March Madness is one of the most exciting times of the year. The NFL has proven that a bigger playoff pool provides more entertainment.
It will be interesting to see if the format morphs over time.
