What a 12 team playoff means for Clemson…

For the foreseeable future …

It means -

- One more game needed to win a National Championship
- We’ll always be in the CFP

I see us continuing to be at least top 4 in most( if not every) season…which means a first round bye…
I can’t foresee Clemson falling out of the top 12..

What it means for SCar…nothing..
They are so far removed from being a top 12 program …the CFP remains a news story for them to read about and never participate in…

Well…
I imagine the SEC champ and Ohio State will both be top 4 …most years…

Out of 12 teams ..probably three will be SEC teams realistically…

Clemson “would be” riding a six year appearance streak?? Ahem.

And their bit about the B1G would have had more than the SEC if there were 12 teams, completely ignores the reality that eSECpn would have done a full-court press endlessly promoting any #13-20 ranked SEC team to pull them up, just like they’ve done to push for two SEC teams in the BCS (Bama/UGA rematches are so awesome doncha know) and top 4 SEC teams in the CFP (Skip Bayless’s all SEC top 4 comes to mind). When there’s an opportunity to get more SEC teams in, eSECpn will pull out all the stops.

I would prefer an 8 team playoff with Power 5 champions, the top Group of 5 champion and two at large teams. No conference could have more than two teams in the playoff and if Notre Dame wants to be a part of the playoff join a conference.

It would be "one more game needed" only for the teams not in the top 4 (the teams not getting a bye). If Clemson is top 4, then it's still the same number of games.

I'm not much of a fan of expanding to 12, but on the bright side as I mentioned in an earlier post, it would increase the chances of UGA & Clemson playing more often, which I don't see as a bad thing.

Actually this is not correct. I was listening to Sports Radio, and someone said that it'd be the same number of games for the top 4. But after thinking about it, I realized that's not right. It would be one more game. So in the interest of accuracy (which you all know me for), I wanted to make that correction.
