Why? They'd be better off with the FCS model (i.e. a REAL playoff)....


No one, FCS included, needs a 24 team playoff model. 8 is plenty, 16 at the most. :thumb:

Eh, the first round, with the top 8 teams getting byes, tends to be kinda drab. Things don't get started until at least the top 16, and in some cases those games are duds too and it's not until the final 8 that you see great games.

Nope. 16 was the right number. The fact that we have to go searching for some VERY mediocre teams to fill 24 tells me that's too many.

I don't necessarily mean 24. The byes are a bit cumbersome. Sixteen would be fine. My main point is that there should be auto-bids for all conferences that choose to participate (allowing for the possibility of some pulling an Ivy stunt) and some at-larges. To me, it's not a real playoff if you define people out. And the argument that "the little boys can't beat a P5" is a red herring, because there's the perpetual example of Boise, and there's always the possibility of an App-Michigan upset. That's the fun of a playoff; it's boring if you define that out.
