Post subject:  When will we get the NEEDED 8 Team Playoff

From the UM thread where i went WAY off topic.

I do think the Commitee got the top 4 right, based on the #refgate giving OSU the win. UW deserved #4 and I am excited for this playoff, but its the 3rd year of the CFP where the top 4 was correct, but its also the 3rd year in a row where it is OBVIOUS the Playoff needs to be 8 teams.

8 Team Playoff (Based off current CFP Ratings [below] and assuming format is Power 5 Champs + Top Group of 5 + 2 At Large):

Note: I flipped PSU & UM, both because UM is the better team and with 8 teams I think the committee would have so OSU doesnt play UM back to back games and a PSU OSU rematch is better drama right now. They arent supposed to factor poop like that in, but we know they do.

Alabama vs Western Michigan (Winner Plays UW/UM Winner)

Clemson vs Oklahoma (Winner Plays OSU/PSU Winner)

Ohio State vs Penn State

Washington vs Michigan


Nobody in the country could argue this would be better for the game and the fans. And we don't even add more bowl games. We extend the season 1 week, Make the New Years 6 become the 4 Quarterfinal games and the 2 Semi final games the next week, followed by the title game 1 week later. All the Top Teams "left out" have 3+ Losses.

RANK TEAM RECORD
1 Alabama 13-0
2 Clemson 12-1
3 Ohio State 11-1
4 Washington 12-1
5 Penn State 11-2
6 Michigan 10-2
7 Oklahoma 10-2
8 Wisconsin 10-3
9 Southern California 9-3
10 Colorado 10-3
11 Florida State 9-3
12 Oklahoma State 9-3
13 Louisville 9-3
14 Auburn 8-4
15 Western Michigan 13-0
