  • Unfortunately, the "playoffs" are not a true playoff and that is what all of the fans are griping about.

    I am not advocating this format, but the 16 team format works great in the lower divisions. I would think an 8 team playoff would work fine in the FBS.

    The key is standardization. All conferences need to play the same # of conference games and conference winners should be invited, without bias or opinion. If you win your conference, you are in. There are 5 P-5 conferences, which means that with an 8 team playoff we have 3 more teams to invite. I don't have an answer for how those 3 are picked. But that would be a step in the right direction.
