8 teams with 1 thru 4 hosting first round. Or, 6 teams with #1 and #2 getting first round bye and #3 and #4 hosting elimination round.

Yep. The power five conf champions and three at large. UCF would get their shot to win a real championship.


It's a no freaking brainer and would be awesome. Do it!

I can see 6 with the #1 & 2 seeds getting a first round bye and the first round games being at the home stadium of the higher seed but I have a hard time seeing how the #7 & 8 teams can have a legitimate claim to the national championship.

I like it at four. There is typically not eight top tier teams. Will be throw away playoff games like the first round of the NBA.

As soon as we go to eight folks will want 12 or 16 is our never ending need for more

I think 4 is perfect. There is no need to add another game into the schedule. As it is now, the contenders are already playing right through winter break and the national championship teams play up until the start of the semester.

I like it as it is. They do not need to get any bigger because you can't make everybody happy.

Leave it how it is, the regular season is what makes cfb so great.


You’ll never make everyone happy, the people who get left out will always complain

I would like to see 8 as well. It would mean if the Tigers win the ACC they are in the CFP. I would like that security against crazy scenaios.

Agreed. Every year there has been the possibility of one of those crazy scenarios playing out. One could argue they have played out every year (last year Ohio State getting left out, couple years ago TCU, etc. etc.) With 8, there's no question who deserves to be in. Yeah yeah the #9 team would complain about getting left out but that's just getting ridiculous.
