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.
