    Sitting here watching the 12-0 ND State crush Colgate in the quarter final playoff game. It dawns on me FCS does it right a real playoff , not the popularity contest Div 1 schools have. There is absolutely no reason that Division 1 football couldn't have the same type of playoffs that they have in FCS.. I have heard all the arguments against and quite frankly they are all weak. (My opinion and worth what it cost you..)

    Yes the arguments are weak. It’s all about the money.

    One of the main reasons they dont have the same system is the risk.of injury.

    The four team playoff ensures every game throughout the season is crucial. Its not diluted.

    Not to mention they don’t get it wrong.

    true to a point but many FCS players have gone on to play pro ball as RL said it's all about the money.

    I hear what you are saying but a playoff with multiple teams instead of just the 4 one loss or undefeated teams would be more interesting to watch say a two or even three loss team in their respective conference knocks off a BAMA or a OK and they advance . I would be just like the NFL playoffs, they dont just let the top 4 teams play a couple games and determine a champion they have to play multiple games.. the current system sucks but it's so ingrained in us we think it's just fine but it's not.

    Isn’t the current playoff system going to 8 teams in the future? Seems like I remember that it’s supposed to expand to 8 in like 2025 or something. Am I wrong about that?
    Edited to add: I just looked it up and there are no plans to expand to 8 teams. I was wrong. Won’t be the last time.

    I like the playoff system the way it is now. If you dilute it to eight or more teams, it devalues the games played during the season.

    I agree with Ed somewhat however I said before they started the 4 team thing that it needed to be 8-12 otherwise money and trying to spread the wealth to power conferences would take precedence. Even 6 would help and give top 2 a buy. More teams could dilute it but I’d rather see a longer playoff than some of these BS Bowls. I’m sorry winning 5-6 games should not automatically make anyone “bowl eligible”. I’ve always said no bowl unless you have a winning conference record. The fact that you’re conference may be stronger than others is irrelevant. Beat the people you’re supposed to beat.

    I was going to say....I certainly hope you are wrong. 8 teams would be absurd and completely ruin the regular season

    And that sir is your prerogative.. I think it would be more interesting to have an NFL type playoff and you don't and that's cool. I think much of the college football watching country could not care less about the top 4 teams that get into the "playoffs" each year (almost always the big $ schools)..We are going to have to agree to disagree on this one.

    Also explain to me me this diluted argument. Then what you are saying is the MLB.NHL,NBA,NFL,MLS,FCS and even the NASCAR playoff systems are diluted? So basically the way I look at it now when one of the four teams that are in the "playoffs" wins in all and are crowed college football champion, they are really not the college football champion they are champion of Div 1 college football..:D
