This is music to my ears. Do I think we need to go to 16 teams? Absolutely not, but expansion is coming one way or another.
That much I can 100% guarantee you. There’s simply too much money on the table to not expand, and the fact that scenarios are being discussed is great news.
Now, I’ve said for a very long time that an eight team playoff is the way to roll. Have all P5 champions get auto bids, have three at-large bids and an undefeated G5 team automatically gets a spot if they make the top-10.
This isn’t rocket science. It’s just football. There’s no need to complicate it, and my system would entertain the hell out of America.
