I look forward to coaches like Day and Dabo putting up 80-burgers in their first round matchups to prove a point.

I didn’t say I agree with it. It just seems to be the message being sent.

Look at LSU vs Florida in 2007

1 vs 9

Huge gameZ people still talk about it, and besides LSU winning it meant nothing for the NC picture because Florida lost to UGA.

It was still very exciting. People still really cared.

You're ignoring seasons like this past one for LSU, where their games were relatively meaningless after the first game, and definitely after game 3

2020 LSU wasn't getting into the playoffs

but what if you lose an early game and your season is basically over from then on?

Then you at least had intraconference rivalries to look forward to. This kills all of that largely

People are going to scoff at that, but the playoffs have already killed things for the vast majority of teams. Expanding that system sounds like it will expand the opportunities for everyone, but it will really just create a slightly larger super league and then everyone else who now has NOTHING. No bowls. No intra conference rivalries. Nothing.

It meant everything because if LSU lost they were almost assuredly out of the title picture. It took the craziest year in living college football memory for LSU to make it to the title when they lost to Kentucky and arkansas.

This could create more of these matchups because a loss in one of those games isn't season ending any more. But it might also not be worth it to play tough games out of conference if you're guaranteed a title shot and bye (4 of the 5 get one) from winning your conference.


it's also likely not worth it b/c of the added # of games for title-contending teams

People cared b/c LSU's title chances were on the line and Tebow came into TS (after his cell phone got out) and almost ruined that.

With a 12-team playoff, the stakes wouldn't be nearly as high so why would the interest stay as high?

Stakes matter and expanding the playoffs decreases the stakes across the board

Pending approval - which it will be approved - @CFBPlayoff headed to 12 teams. Earliest start would be after 2023 regular season, sources told @Stadium. Because of impact of expanded playoff, expect anywhere from 4-10 bowls to be eliminated by 2023, sources said

ESPN owns like all the shite tier to mid tier bowls now so I imagine they calculated they'll make more money from playoff games and cut the 4-10 most underperforming bowls.

ESPN (Disney) owns college football and it will be exactly what they want it to be at any time. Especially now that the SEC is all on board with the mouse. The only thing holding off complete domination is FOX owning partial primetime slots with the Big 10/12 and Pac 12.

You’re telling me undefeated Alabama and LSU are playing to decide who goes to the SEc Championship and people wouldn’t care because they both will make the playoffs?

That game won’t be exciting?

I think the problem is this has already happened. To me, the BCS and earlier systems were good systems. The 4 team playoff is an atrocious system.

I’m willing to give 12 a shot although I hate the idea of 4 neutral sites to end the season.

Well I didn't expect it to happen this fast. I'm ok with this.

Although my personal preference is to have an 6 or 8 team playoff, and the G5 has their own separate playoff and champion crowned.

I’ll let Josh Pate explain it to the morons who still don’t get it after having it explained to you for years:

LINK

Support for expanding the playoff, from the fan perspective, represents a fundamental misunderstanding of the issue in CFB. We don’t have a system problem, we have a Nick Saban problem. It makes sense from the money/interest standpoint for the NCAA and TV executives, but the reasons fans give are nonsensical.
