Your telling me, a couple of "experts" decide who gets to play in the playoff and the winning isn't the only factor...phhhhhhhhhuck what stupid cluster fuk.

-Strength of schedule
-Opponent ranking
-eye test.

this is seriously the dumbest thing i have ever seen.


The answer is clearly the UK relegation system.

Teams that improve from year to year move up divisions and bad teams move down.

Experts don't decide anything. The UK soccer system is beyond retarded especially for college sports

The fact that Notre Dame makes it in the top 15 year after year no matter how they suck makes the AP ranking a joke.

"four teams from four different Power Five conferences are seen as favorites for the College Football Playoff. If they all win out, it would be almost impossible to deny a combination of these four. Based on strength of schedule blah blah."...

the UK system is the answer, the good teams have to play other good teams, if their recruiting sucks and the lose, they get relegated into the lower divisions.

No more 70+ points to Michigan vs rugers.

5 power teams will never go undefeated so throw that theory out the window.

UK system is retarded, that's why no American league has adopted it.

No, American leagues haven't adopted it because relegated teams would take a financial hit.

Although their rankings are sometimes chitty it is the best way to go. There's a reason Nebraska is undefeated but not ranked #1

Don't the big teams already dominate the money and rankings?

Besides, the Premier league system has an answer for the money sharing, its called the FA Cup.

So while playing for the whichever division they play for, teams play in a seperate all in competition where big teams play smaller teams.

FA Cup:

"The competition is open to any eligible club down to Levels 10 of the English football league system – all 92 professional clubs in the Premier League and Football League (Levels 1 to 4), and several hundred "non-league" teams in Steps 1 to 6 of the National League System (Levels 5 to 10).[2] A record 763 clubs competed in 2011–12. The tournament consists of 12 randomly drawn rounds followed by the semi-finals and the final. Entrants are not seeded, although a system of byes based on league level ensures higher ranked teams enter in later rounds – the minimum number of games needed to win the competition ranges from six to fourteen."

Because the competition runs parallel to the main leagues, most of the senior teams run secondary teams, in college, it could be the freshman that play.

Because the secondary teams play often the big teams get beaten in the early rounds and often very small teams make it to the final.

This need to make sure all teams get some money is ridiculous, there are big programs who have most of the money, lets just watch them play each other.

enough of this parity business, its a joke.

In college yes absolutely. but there are so many more factors that make it different that I don't really see a promotion/relegation working. Though NCAA is probably the league that it would be most feasible.

UK system with the football WORKS, thats why its so fkn competitive and well known. its fair and makes way for the most determined and competitive teams to prosper in whatever season, take leicester city for example

and if it gets as close as it got between that season of united and city where they were equal on points just have it down to goal difference (or whatever you call a goal in american football)

who was texas longhorns?

i love england and british culture in general until they start opening their mouths about american football. charging neg cannons.

Edit: Also this. You wouldn't have clemson getting exposed and dragged into overtime by an unranked team. Wouldn't have had Penn State upsetting Ohio State etc.

I think its prettayy dumb too.
They should use a european sports league system which autoregulates the match ups of teams and their strength.
Every league with a few divisions just like the NFL, same playoff system but multiple leagues.
6-10 leagues and if you win your league u go up a league until u reach the highest league.
If u place last in ur league u go down a league.

Dat ez bros.
