    Not sure this goes here, but reported by Nicole Auerbach of The Athletic.

    What does everyone think of the college football playoffs expanding to 12 teams?

    As much as I have always lived and died for CFB, it’s just become kinda “meh” with how top heavy it is. No one besides Bama, Clemson, Ohio State, or occasional LSU/UGA type team has any chance to win it. It’ll be cool for your Coastal Carolina’s of the world to get to play in playoff games now but they will just get run off the field by the ten 5 stars Bama trots out.

    Every other sport there can be big time upsets where a Kansas could lose to a Northern Iowa or Duke to a Lehigh. But every year, all we get is a variation of the same teams. A playoff will be refreshing in rounds 1 and 2, but when it all comes down to it, it’ll be the same teams in the final 4. The talent differential is just absurd these days.

    Both were great, but I enjoyed it more. Prior to watching, I didn’t watch the trailer to either one, just read the short descriptions. I found WoM much more unpredictable. I’m also a big of fan robbery/con movies

    Although Doc Brown running around w sawed off shotguns was a big highlight.

    I'm kinda thinking 12 is too many. I was on the train of it expanding to 6 or 8...but not 12. My reasoning isn't so that non power conference teams have a crack at it, more so 12 is just too many and the teams always landing in there will have an extra week on the rest so...in the end it will still be the same top 2-3 teams we have seen winning it all, winning it all. It adds more fun games to gamble on...but I think it's just too big. Plus, with an added week for what I would call "play in" games plus the second week then the "final four"...I know bowls have become not as what they were growing up, but this really can F up some bowl schedules. I think you can control 8 and it won't mess with much scheduling...in football 12 is just too many.

    But for you ND honks, your team is probably assured a seat at the table (unless they exclude independents) pretty much every year now for your annual ass whooping by an sec team.

    ND, if this goes through as planned, cannot get a bye at any point. Even if they are number 1 in the country, they cannot be put at any higher than 5.

    You mean like in 2019 when ND lost to Clemson by 27 and everyone was screaming they didn’t belong, and then Alabama lost to Clemson by 28, and no one said a word?

    You wonder if this finally drives them to join the ACC full time.

    Why would they? It’s not a bad deal for ND. Avoid conference championship week, and play a game at home instead. Get the 5 seed, and avoid having to play #1 in the second round.

    And, they don’t have to play a boring ass garbage ACC schedule every year.

    It’s a ridiculous double standard. I’m not a Notre Dame “fan” but the double standard is just so apparent.

    I also think Notre Dame’s program plays by different rules than the SEC does.

    I think by these rules the 5 seed would almost always be better than the 4 seed.

    The College Football Playoff was guaranteed to expand just like it’s a guarantee only 3 teams can win it every year...
    There are only 2 potential things I like about the expansion
    1. Some on campus home games
    2. Maybe Bowl Season will last into mid February
    Remember, Rose Bowl goes through Bloomington this year

    Bowls are stupid. Just add a week to the regular season and start the playoffs 2 weeks after championship weekend.

    Bowls, history, blah blah blah.
