I think it should be 16. Champ from each conference and 5 at large berths.

it brings out better parity... It lets the none power 5 teams show their power and gives them a chance to prove they are the best. It gives it a Cinderella story effect....

Although its has drawbacks, most importantly extending the season to 16 games (NFL!) for championship teams, it would assure that no deserving team would be left out solely based on conf. affiliation

I really think it should be a 16 team playoff but eight is better than 4 or 6! Put the 2 best teams from every conference and let's see who comes out the winner.

I think it needs to be 16 teams like the lower divisions...

You will always have a power 5 school left out with current format. 5 conference winners s/b automatic with 3 at large. Pandora's box is open, embrace it.

After watching the NCAA basketball & baseball tourneys, football needs to have an 8-team playoff. Two reasons; so non-power five teams have a chance and (2) there are 5 power conferences, not four.

So teams like UCF can’t be left out.

Although it would take away games from conferences most want to see a robust competition for a national champion, including other than the power five conferences.

The move to an 8-team playoff is all about generating more TV money, not about identifying the best team. The present system, for all its faults, is the best balance of revenue and quality.

Four is enough. If 8, why not 16, or for that matter 32? Regardless of the number, those left out will say they were robbed.

As a lifelong cornhusker fan, I believe this is just the person to put things back together that were so messed up by the firing of Frankie Solich.

His resume for developing kids coming in that are more the 3 star kids as it’s rare Nebraska can real in the 4 & especially 5 star kids … he’s proven he can develop those kids into stars that are being drafted into the NFL … something that only Dr Tom could seem to do in the past !

When it comes to coaching hires, there's no such thing as a "sure thing" or a guarantee of success (see Scott Frost). I think TA did a great job of executing a diligent and thorough nationwide search that resulted in a very good hire. One that gives Nebraska a great chance to turn it around quickly!

After celebrating the Scott Frost hire a few years ago I've learned to tread carefully about declaring who I think will be a great coach for the Huskers, but the evidence of his past work certainly looks promising.

High quality college coach....feel he will consider keeping a few current coaches with strong ties to roster and recruiting players (example - Joseph, Busch, Fisher)......Huskers Rhule.....GO BIG RED!!

Come on, the options were all maybe mediocre at best coaches. Would all be in over their heads in Big 10 just like Frost. KU coach and staff, KSU coach and staff, ISU coach and staff, NCST coach and staff, Army coach and staff, Bronco M and his VA staff? No thank you. Choice was a no brainer.

Just another attempt by wealthy alums to buy a championship. Mickey had heart of team. Smart of Rhule to get 8yr contract. In yr 3 when alums want him gone he'll join list of coaches on payout payroll.

NFL success or lack thereof, means squat. Absolutely irrelevant! By your criteria, Nick Saban would have to be considered a fraud for that joke of a stint he served as the Dolphins head coach. Give me a break!

Washout from the NFL that reported had to be persuaded a 2nd time to take the job. Previous record against ranked teams is zero wins. Runs an spread offense with more focus on the pass than the run, might not work in the B10. Baylor was not a rebuild. He did nothing with them the 1st 2 years.

Skeptical, never stayed long enough to measure if his programs were built to last. Bailed from each HC job after having his best year. Almost as if he doubted he could maintain the success.

I live in Jackson, MS and believe me, anyone who can do what he's done at an HBCU school like Jackson St can flat out coach and he talked the #1 overall recruit in the country into signing with them! Not to mention several other highly ranked recruits. Yes, he could get it done! JSU SUCKED B4 DEION!

Our largest challenge is someone who can not only bring in 4 and 5 star recruits, but to adapt them to the CULTURE at Nebraska and bring out the best of them within that culture. Deion Sanders is not a part of Nebraska Cornhusker culture and cannot bring that to players.

Nebraska MUST get this hire right. They simply cannot afford the risk of a coach with no power 5 coaching/recruiting experience. The stakes are to high to gamble.

No matter the hype and potential, I want a qualified experienced HC who's exemplified those traits that we so desperately need. Deion could be that guy in a few years but I don't want to take the chance at this point that he's not.
