it's that the drop-off past the first two teams is generally overwhelming.


The 4 seed has won it twice out of 5 years

I'm not in favor of any expansion, though.

Philosophically, I like the 4 team CFP, but note that with the 2 team BCS championship format, that the 2017 national championship would have been Clemson vs Oklahoma, instead of Alabama vs Georgia.

It's probably stronger than ever now. There were better teams than ND who missed out. Moreover, it's about tv ratings anyway. It will be expanded.

disagree, our team plays on another level in the CFP

ND was not that bad. We just played lights out

We played lights out and they weren't that good.

It’s about revenue

There’s a look in after next years playoff to see if they want to expand or alter the format.

Unless the 8 team revenue is at least 1.5x the 4 team, don’t count on it.

It's a lock. It's just a matter of when.

I really like a 6 team playoff. No automatic bids and 1 and 2 get a first round bye. That way silly ucf will get a chance to get smoked and then they will be quiet again.

How about a 5 team field with 4 and 5 in a play-in game?

The only purpose of expanding the playoff is to make the Big and the PAC feel better about themselves. It is the participation trophy mentality that drives that way of thinking. Nobody ever can legitimately argue that the #8 team could win the Natty.

No. It showed how much UGA deserved to be in the playoff.

09, enough of that junk. 2 loses and you do not deserve to be in it.

ND had zero losses and didn’t deserve to be there.

They would have to expand to a 60 team format for the coots get in the playoffs.

Nah we could probably sneak in with 48.

Two Questions:

How many losses did U5C and UGA have combined?

Did you realize that U5C lost as many ACC games since Nov 24th than Clemson has since 2015?

Now S*T*F*U!

Let's see if this analogy is not too complicated for your Coot mind.

The NFL is comprised of the NFC and AFC and the 2 teams that win the NFC and AFC divisions play in the Superbowl. Got it so far. If the NFC 2nd place team was actually better than the AFC champion, the NFL will not replace the AFC champion with the 2nd best NFC team. It's kind of like the ACC and SEC in college football. You still with me. Therefore, a 2 loss UGA may have been the the 2nd best team in the SEC but they cannot and should not replace a 1 loss Conference Champion or undefeated Independent that played a Power 5 schedule. ND didn't play the cupcakes UGA did and didn't lose 2 games like UGA.
Lastly, why is a Coot defending UGA? Are you realizing U5C will never be good enough to make the CFP?

I just don’t understand why everybody keeps saying this....

How does Clemson blowing out Notre Dame somehow mean UGA should have gotten in?


SEC SEC, logic is not their strong suit***

I hope so. But I wouldn't mind a changing of scheduling philosophy with more inter-conference matchups during the regular season.
