That would have the potential to add 6 games, heck this makes the regular season pointless and the conference championship game pointless.

You're not even remotely right.

Make the thing MEAN something...9 wins and you're in the playoffs.
Win your Conference and get first round bye.

It's very simple.

I don't think they are putting it out there as a justifiable option. I think we could all agree the playoff would never get this big. It's just to show what it would look like in a fantasy land where football playoffs worked like March Madness.

He's saying that while looking at this 64 team playoff.
6-6 UNC made this tournament, and there are no BYEs in the this tournament.

Looks great! One question... why is UCF seeded 5th and USC is 6th after we Handed them their sole loss? Just askin'.

You know by USC they mean Southern Cal, right? We're a 2 seed on this. (unless you're being sarcastic. In which case carry on)

Yeah I would absolutely hate it if they did this and copied college basketball with the 64 team format. Granted I know it's far fetched they would ever try a 64 team tourney in football because of the number of games it would add. I already don't watch college basketball until February/March because what is the point? Average teams make the field so it's not much of an accomplishment (for most teams, at USC making the basketball tourney would be a big deal sadly). We could win 7 games and make a 64 team field. It would make winning the conference meaningless and devalue the regular season. As much as everyone hates the BCS and the BCS rules, the system worked as far as matching up the best two teams in the country against each other to play for the championship. After that it doesnt really matter anyway. It sucks they have the 2 team per conferenc rule, but at the end of the day that does not impact the national championship.

I know this is just for fun, but if they were to make 1/4 of the size, it would actually work. It seems to be okay for FCS teams.
