    College Football Playoff doesn't need expansion – it needs reform

    Interesting article on a suggestion. Do away with the conference championships and start the playoff for that game.

    As it stands now, Georgia plays Alabama. We already saw that show. If you ask me, either team could lose and both could still be in, assuming Georgia does not lose by a wide margin, so who cares? Clemson plays Pitt. Who cares? Clemson need only win by one point and still be in the playoffs, something they could do in their sleep. Notre Dame gets to sit on their arse. Must be nice. Ohio State gets to play Northwestern. Again, no one cares other than Ohio State who will feel compelled to try to score a 100 points while looking like an arse to Northwestern fans, but hey, you have to try and impress the stupid judges. Oklahoma gets to play Texas. Again, we already saw the show and it was a defensive abomination.

    Oh, and UCF gets to be ignored, simply because they have no tradition of winning big games.

    This makes more sense than the people clamoring for an expanded playoff with conference champs from the Power 5 getting automatic spots.

    It would be really cool to have 8. With college football, that should be as large as it is allowed to go. Win 3 straight to be the national champion.

    Exactly. The current system is still far better than going by the AP poll, and better than only the top 2 getting in.

    Going to 8 to me is too much. Going to 6 might be an option, with 1-2 getting "byes"

    considering how much time they get off between the season and the bowl games anyway, 1 more week isn't much.

    Unless it was for the national championship they were exhibition games with no outcome other than bragging rights
