Yep.

And when you look up the NFL’s Greatest Games, not a single one lists a regular season game, because without high stakes, they are meaningless entertainment.

Coming to a CFB near you.

CFB will soon be one of those tract homes in the sports neighborhood.


Then go ahead and explain how any regular season game is meaningful for Cincinnati this year?

They didn't play anybody decent but their conference title was at stake, as well as a major bowl game. (which they got and lost to the 4th best SEC school)

Want your games to be more meaningful? Do these two things:

1. Schedule good opponents
2. Win

I see your point in that wildly engaging, well thought-out retort. I guess the current system of Clemson, OSU, Alabama, and a wildcard provides so much parody and such high entertainment value.




I think the current system has had a negative effect on recruiting.

More playoff teams may make that 5 star rethink sitting on the bench at Bama for 3 years, behind a couple other 5 stars, before getting meaningful playing time. If at all.

Expanding the playoffs gives more team chance such as the Cincinnati and UCF like teams. The G5 teams are more likely to land a top tier recruit if they believe that team has a legit shot at the playoffs. Right now we don't even have enough spots for the P5 Champs

Correct. Especially in a short season.

Get the frick outta here with playing NOBODY and then acting like you deserve a shot at the title.

Imagine boxing a bunch of nobodies and then claiming you should get to box Floyd Mayweather - oh never mind.

Yes, it is such garbage that people can't stop talking about it, wearing merch, and watching the games.

Clemson has a dog shite schedule most years do they not deserve to play? You play your schedule and if you can make it through undefeated you deserve a shot. Literally every other sport has a legitimate playoff.

You clearly have no idea what I'm talking about. The college football post season is broken of course people will still watch college football that doesn't take away from the post season being awful

They demand that we make it just like all the other sports. It'll eventually be 16 teams, then 18 teams with a play-in. NFL minor leagues, basically.




Going into this year 14 of 32 NFL teams will make the playoffs. That's just under 44% at 43.75%.

For CFB to be equal to how the NFL does it 57 of the 130 teams would have to make the playoffs.

Who exactly did Ohio State defeat that made them deserve to play in the playoff last year? Indiana and Northwestern?

I don't think you're seeing this clearly.

Clemson is a top tier team. You can tell by watching them. Cincinnati is not on that tier and you can tell by watching them.

You're saying Cincinnati should get a shot based purely on their record against nobodies, even though we all know that Cincinnati is not a top tier team. In doing so, you are penalizing 2nd tier teams in the SEC that are better than Cinci all because they have losses to Alabama and each other.

What do you think Cinci's record would be if they played in the SEC last year? Better than Georgia, Florida, and A&M? No.

I don't give two shits about the G5.

Right now Bama, Clemson, OU and OSU are essentially penciled in every year. The recruits know this obviously and that plays into their decision on which school to "take their talents" to.

Before the 4 team playoff there was a bit more variety at the top.

Hasn't the same team won like 8 out of 10 championships in FCS too? But yea more playoff spots creates more parity I guess.

NDSU has been on a run for sure but eventual champ Sam Houston State beat them in the second round this year.

Yeah that ship sailed if there ever was one.

In fact CFB was the OG in breaking the rules and being deceptive.

The format proposed might bring fans back temporarily but the current format kills CFB.

Everyone is just focused on a playoff spot. And that singular focus has lost interest and respect for paegentry, rivalries, individual wins mattering not just the record.

The regular season, tailgates, rivalries, etc. Just aren't what they use to be.

The proposal for a 12-team playoff is a reaction to all-time low ratings, usual suspects in every 4-time pkayoff., same predictable outcome.

More teams equals fake hope with additional chances to fail.

And then after 5 years of this new playoff,it will still be Alabama and Clemson meeting for the 8th time for the MNC.

re: For those who support a 12+ team CFB playoff…
Why am I not surprised SEC fans are the only ones throwing a fit about this


No shite SEC fans don’t want to expand, they get two teams nearly every year no matter what, while five other conferences are eliminated before opening kick on September 1.

This isn’t ruining college football. There are lots of other things ruining college football but a little decreased value in the regular season isn’t one of them.

Why does everyone deserve a seat at the table?

Take this socialistic handout bull shite out of here.

When the SEC get 2 or 3 in the semi-finals every season they will complain even more.

With a 12 team playoff and the bowl system gone entirely, we have reduced the post season from 80+ teams down to 12. So now, when a shitty Texas AM squad goes 9-3 and doesnt make jack shite...then we will see if the regular season is less "meaningful" to you. This lazy take from the anti playoff expansion crowd is pathetic. We currently live in the least meaningful regular season system in college football history. 6-6 teams make bowls. It is literally the welfare generation of college football. Good riddance to the bowl system...FINALLY!!!

“College” football is dead.
It’s AAA.
Might as well do 12 team playoffs and make it more NFL like.

You're giving Alabama an automatic playoff spot every year and don't even realize how you usually stop Saban (or the SEC) is reducing the chance of our participation.

Not increasing it.
