Remember when everyone thought Mike Leach couldn't turn the miserable Cougars around?

I thought it was a great fit.  I love the guy

Thoughts?

When it was the BCS and they were "considering" a four team playoff, it was obvious the direction this was going.   There is no stopping it and there is no satisfying the teams left out on the bubble no matter how many teams get in to a "playoff"

Agreed.  And the only solution to that would be to have every team in the playoff, which of course doesn't work.   Or I guess make a playoff out of the teams in the power conferences which is no more "fair" than it is now.

Forget that. How about the real playoffs? You ready for the Battle of the Hardins?

If Georgia beats Alabama, and Alabama makes the playoffs over one or more one loss conference champ, we will have an expanded playoff as soon as it can be contractually done.

You're right the bubble will always have controversy.

I still think we're heading for an 8 team playoff. I'm not exactly how they will swing it, but I think it's heading that way.

My guess is all the Power Five CG winners(no matter what warts they may or may not have) and three lucky ladies to be fought ov....I mean three more teams to be reasoned in.

The Crusaders will crush the Cowboys same as before. I think the Johnnies have too much O for Knights.

That will happen even if Georgia does not beat Alabama.

Agree on 5 automatic bids for Power 5 champs. I believe they will have to put in at least one automatic for an undefeated Group of 5 Team also--let's just say they would be foolish not to do that.  Much of the controversy as of late has been generated by the UCF win streak.  Put them in...and all that squawking disappears really quick.  That leaves the next two highest ranked teams as at large bids...or in some years three.
