November is around the corner so we face that time again ......
when the playoff committee has way too many 1 loss teams and no idea how to whittle them to 4.
People want 6 teams? 8 teams? How about 10 teams with no further expansion!
That 10 team playoff your looking for, I can give it to ya.
Conference Championship Retasking!
There are already 5 games that help determine the final four, problem is about 3 of those 10 teams have no chance at the playoff. We can already see there are potential match ups in the B12 and Pac12 that will do nothing to get a one loss champ from either of those conferences into the CFP. But, if they are open to inviting a quality opponent to their championship game they can create a match up that is more compelling, so more profitable, plus gives them the greater potential for a spot in the CFP for their conference.
So, for example: LSU upsets Bama and heads to the SEC championship instead, now you have the "1 loss Bama" scenario and any 1 loss Champ from B12 or Pac12 knows they're cooked. So instead of playing some loser from the Pac12 south, the conference invites a 1 loss Bama to the Pac12 Championship game to play a 1 loss Oregon with the winner having a near lock to be one of the final four.
Thought it was a good idea, especially since it could even work this year if things get really chaotic.
Like ......how about "all of the top 8 being 1 loss teams" chaotic.
What do you think?
