In NO years has there ever been a case for more than four teams.

Of course, you insisted it would never go to four. So it is not surprising that you can not see the writing on the wall.

If you are saying "should" it, then I would be inclined to agree that it should not.  But it will...and it is obvious it will.
If you are going to answer a question I never raised at least include the post I wrote.

That actually made zero sense.

Why bother? Half the time you make no sense. To put it back up there is like taking a picture of your latest dump.

I got stuck on whether he meant there was never a case for an expanded playoff, or never a case for any team except the four chosen, but since both are equally wrong I guess it does not matter. The first year there was a case for TCU and Baylor, which means there was a case for an expanded playoff. There was a.case.last year for tOSU or UCF so there was a case for at least a six team playoff. Mind you, I have no real problem with the teams that have made the playoffs, outside of my philosophical disagreement with non-conference champs. But that does not mean there wasn't a case to be made at least for the absent Power 5 champs each year.

There was never a case for any of the four teams you mentioned. Not that it matters to the point I made in response to a Trojan.
