Ok....I can't buy a format where even a SINGLE 3 loss team could be in the playoff. That is absurd.
I’ve never understood this viewpoint. Teams in the NFL go 10-6 and win the Super Bowl. How many wild card teams have won the World Series in MLB?
If you want to name a “best team” just go back to bowls and polls. The playoffs are about a champion and the best team doesn’t always win. That’s part of what makes it great.
FCS has a 24 team playoff I think. I don’t get why it would be so difficult to go to 16. Cut 1 meaningless non-con game to get the regular season down to 11, then bring every (9 or 10 or however many there are now) conference champ, fill the rest with at large teams. Play 2 rounds @ the home field of higher seeds to reward them.
Teams like UCF get a shot if they go undefeated, Georgia doesn’t drop out of the playoffs for losing a conference title game to the best team in the country, etc. Alabama and Clemson probably win by 60 in the first round, but I’d still rather see it in a playoff game than in week 2
