We have a 3% chance to make the playoff, which isn't very good tbh.

The next three games are the season. Run them and the year was a relative success. Drop them and it's a bust. Beating any one of Iowa, Michigan or Wisconsin is going to take a strong effort. If McSorely goes down....

This is the thread where heyeaglefn finally realizes that I never claimed to know that much about college football. In fact, I've repeatedly said the opposite.

Kind of continuing a point from the previous thread but feel like the 4-team playoff era has just sucked any sense of perspective or enjoyment out of CFB.

Maybe this is just a Penn State thing b/c we've been |SOCLOSE| the past few years but it feels like it's become about focusing on what you're not (Bama, basically) / what you don't have / what's wrong vs. just letting the season happen.

Maybe it's a product of expectations. Last season and now this season have been among the most unfulfilling in a while. We have a top 20 matchup happening in Beaver Stadium this weekend and I can't seem to get myself to give a #$!&@ at all.

The main reason I'd like to see 8 teams is so that every confence champion, decided ON THE FIELD, gets in. Let the committee fill in the rest of the field, and seeding. And, 8 teams=3 weekends=the same time frame as March Madness.

Exactly. It's so simple. I really have to idea why they don't do it. So 8 teams have one more game? I don't see why that's a big deal. I remember when they said more than 11 games and a bowl was too much, but that obviously didn't end up mattering.

And FCS, D2, and D3 all have larger playoffs. A lot of those kids are missing classes/finals, their games/seasons are just as physically taxing(but I guess that doesn't matter, because so few of them are pro prospects), and they're not producing anywhere close to the revenue the FBS schools are producing.

Having said that, I DON'T want to see D1 go to 16 or 24 like the lower divisions. 8 is enough.

Anyone out of the top 8 isn't really going to have a chance anyway. So I agree, 8 is enough.
