  • In this Get Up podcasts they have the Bama haters lined up from left to right. My reply has nothing to do with the shows discussion point but everything to do with the panel guests. Diehard Alabama fans that truly follow the team all can tell you these guests never have anything good to say about Alabama football and constantly flip flop what Coach Saban to try and throw him under the bus. So whenever they are showcased on a media event I change the channel. I can't stand to listen to their hypocrisy. By the way I did not listen to this podcast either. But I have been listening to numerous sports media podcasts discussing in detail the 12 team expansion proposal.

  • Why is booger so bitter man! Why only allow 4 teams? what about the rest. The play-off will still be hard but at least brings the excitement that your no name team can actually fight for a national title. G5 teams might be naive but at least they have a fighting chance.

  • The champs should be determined on the field, there’s no reason all the major conference champions aren’t included #1 and there’s no reason the best mid majors shouldn’t have a shot to upset the applecard. I’m sure a 12 team playoff will just mean 4 SEC teams get in anyway but at least give more schools a chance to prove it on the field Maybe some of the top athletes will choose other schools if they know there are other teams with a shot to win it

  • Basically, all you're telling me is that Bama can get in as a 2 or 3 loss team, that's about it. Expanding to 12 or even 16 teams proves nothing. Just that Alabama had more room error, the same we said when y'all went to a playoff to begin with.

  • In my opinion, The four team playoff format for the college football playoffs is good enough. In my opinion I hope they don’t change the playoff format the way it is right now. If the College Football playoff Committee decides to change the format, then it would take away the vibe that the college football playoff offers. If the committee expanded the field to 12 teams, it just makes it so that the college football playoffs won’t be as fun because if the CFP is trying to make it easier for teams to play for a National Championship, then what’s the point of the College Football Playoffs? In my opinion, This is an absolute stupid idea because teams that make the playoffs now,have to work for it to make the playoffs, But if you have a 12 format bracket than certainly teams will not have to work for it like those teams that have qualified. In other words, teams that don’t have any business being in the playoffs are in the playoffs because those teams aren’t a national championship contending team year in and year out and they’re not a national championship caliber program. In my opinion, College football fans and the college football world should be happy with what the playoffs have to offer, instead of complaining about what the playoffs don’t have. None of this expansion to a 12 team format nonsense. I feel that we as College Football fans, and I mean “we” because we are a family when it comes to our passion for the game of football, so I think and hope we’ll all come together and make our voices heard!

  • Playoffs are stupid. I can't think of anyone who especially liked it. Tye season is Twelve games long. It's nit supposed to extend beyond that. Ever. Bowl games are exhibitions. Playoff games are post-season pairings that aren't about anything other than maybe putting a team in the national spotlight for a minute.

  • Why is it that D1 doesn’t have a substantial playoff like every other football league, level, etc? One can argue it’s because of MONEY so Booger is wrong. Also- how could a 12 team playoff hurt the relevancy of the regular season? You still have to win your conference pretty much. Who cares if a team doesn’t go undefeated? 1-2 loss teams and add a Cinderella in the mix makes for great football. I like the idea.

  • Booger, your wrong. Why can't they play 12? If all other divisions in football does it, why cant the FBS? FCS, Division ll, Division Ill does it and have done it for years. I don't like it but I do understand because it has been teams left out that may have gave the historic teams a challenge. Central Florida, TCU ect...

  • Assuming playoff is inevitable there's little need to expand beyond eight. At some point there's a diminishing return. I think it's eight. Still I prefer the present format. Four is the right measure of competition. Post BCS. Eight isn't necessary. But if it's inevitable then Include the following. 1. Atlantic Coast Conference: Include Cincinnati, Navy and Notre Dame. 2. Big Ten Conference : Include Colorado and West Virginia. 3. Big XII Conference: Include Arkansas, Central Florida, Coastal Carolina, Liberty, Memphis, Rice, S. Methodist, and Tulsa. 4. Pacific-12 Conference: Include Boise State, Brigham Young, Hawaii, Nevada Las Vegas and San Diego State. 5. Southeastern Conference: Include Clemson, Kansas and Tulane. 6. Mid American Conference: Include Army, East Carolina Marshall and Temple. 7. Mountain West Conference: Include Arkansas St., Houston, Louisiana Tech, S. Alabama, S. Mississippi, Texas State and UTEP. 8. C-USA and Sun Belt: merge. Add USF. Massachusetts: independent.

  • For once I agree With Booger. They are killing college football with this nonsense. Expanding this playoff to 12 teams will lead to 17 game seasons, which is not good for these kids that they supposedly care about. Let’s end this pretense once and for all. Declare college football as the official minor league of the NFL and pay the players.

  • The reason why a 8 playoff team in NCAA 🏈 is the best setup in my opinion is 1. It insures that all 5 power conference have a rep in the playoffs. . somebody is left out with ONLY a 4 team playoff 2 Now a smaller conference school team or 2 with a undefeated or 1lose record makes the playoff. 3. As we all know the smaller conference talent have vastly improved in the past two decades. 4. Expansion will ONLY benefit NCAA COLLEGE 🏈

  • Actually pretty much my exact thoughts summed up perfectly. This is inevitable, because of money. And while it's being done for all the wrong reasons, it's already too late since we sold our souls to the corporate devil's with the creation of a playoff. It was always going to expand. 4 teams is too little for a 32 team league let alone 100+ teams. Sadly it's only happening now because they desperately need money as covid has almost killed the game.

  • Here's two more situations that's fascinating. This year if a 9-3 Florida Team met up with an Undefeated Alabama team in the SEC Championship..that game would absolutely be meaningless for Florida and its Fans because at best even if Florida wins with 3 losses they wouldn't make it in the. CFP 4 team format they would go to an Outback or Citrus bowl game and none of there senior starters would play they wouldn't even suit up for the SEC championship game they be getting ready for the draft...under the new Playoff Expansion a 9-3 Florida team who plays in the SEC championship that game would mean so.ething and all there players would play because if they win baby there in... Another situation they talk about how this new Expansion would water down the regular season by default i would argue it already is because if your a 2 loss team in the regular season not name Clemson,Alabama, or Ohio State none of your games matter anymore a 2 loss Iowa team rank 16 vs a 2 Loss Penn St team ranked 13 if they played in regular season that game would already be meaningless..under the new Exspansion that game would mean a great deal..And teams with 1,2, even 3 losses early on most certainly catch fire at the end of the year get in the tournament and have A shot of winning the whole thing teams who normally would be left out and pissed and blow a team out in a meaningless bowl game will now have the chance to redeem themself.. Schools and Television make more money yes. Do players likeness benefit a great deal with expanded playoffs yes Do the fans get more drama and more teams in a tournament with more excitement to see more star players go head to head one last time before turning pro = yes... The only ones who don't like this are the premidona programs who have had there strings all over college football

And spare me the Oklahoma Choke Artists as your default position. This will significantly change college football forever. Role your eyes all you want. These two (Booger and Goofy) know exactly what I’m talking about. There’s no upside for the SEC and tons of major downside for them with this new format. Just watch where the pushback comes from. Old, tired sportscasters and SEC fanboys.

The way it is now it's a meaningless game deciding who goes to the Citrus Bowl and who goes to the Sun Bowl and when they get to those bowls the good players eying NFL salaries sit it out and the players that participate probably care about partying more then winning.

  • Booger is right, winning a national championship should be hard. However, I don't see how expanding to a 12 team format would make it any easier than the current 4 team format, it only gives more opportunity to smaller G5 schools that can never play for the title no matter what they do. The bye for the top 4 teams also ensures that the regular season would still matter significantly, and matter even more for smaller schools that never had a chance to make the 4 team playoff.

The nfl has a lower margin for error for reaching the playoffs and same thing for college basketball.

    Horace BallHorace Ball13 өдрийн өмнө
    • I don't think a lot of people expect college football's landscape to change with this new format. Imo, the format is about giving all teams, including the smaller ones, a legitimate path to the playoffs. Any respectable competition should be giving every team a legitimate chance at the trophy. Even if they end up getting blasted by bigger teams, they at least got their chance. It's not "participation trophy syndrome" to want everyone to have an opportunity. I'm a soccer fan first and foremost, so my best comparison would be to the UEFA Champions League. The teams from big countries dominate this competition. Porto's win in 2003 was the last time a team from outside England, Italy, Spain, or Germany won the tournament. But, teams from smaller countries still get the same opportunity to compete in the tournament as the teams from big countries do. Sometimes, the smaller teams pull off massive upsets. In 2011, for example, Switzerland's FC Basel knocked Manchester United out of the tournament. It may not happen often, but under the new format, playoff upsets will happen and we'll likely talk about them for years afterward.

With this said, I think 8 teams is the magic number. Any more than that and it does truly become too watered down.
