CFP released something last week that they were considering alternatives to the current four-team playoff, and that there were 63 options under consideration. Those options include where to play as well as how many to play, and this week I’m hearing rumbles that they’re looking at a 12 team playoff (four byes obviously) that would involve early round games on campus.
They know people are getting tired of Alabama vs. Clemson vs. Ohio State every year and that football west of Norman is largely inconsequential before Halloween. Expanded playoffs try to address those issues. Of course they create other issues, like clobbering the minor bowls. But thought I’d throw it out for discussion.
