I hate to say it, because FCS schools make some good coin from playing FBS schools which boosts their universities, but I'd rather cut out those games, shorten the out of conference schedules, and have an eight team playoff. Teams such as Mich St, Baylor, TCU, and a Pac 12 or SEC school would've made an extremely intriguing playoff scenario. It's my personal suggestion, but it certainly doesn't make it right by any means.

I think 8 teams would be just about right. more than that and the season is too long. 8 adds a maximum of 3 extra games and would be more comprehensive. #9 will complain but no system is perfect anyway.

Let's expand it to 121 teams and call it the regular season. Then set up bowl games like they did in 1990.

I think it should be 6 teams. The teams that are ranked 1 and 2 should get a first round bye 3 plays 6 4 plays 5. The lower winning team plays 1 just like the NFL.

The arguments against include those whining outside the top 8 will be the same as those whining about being outside the top 4: that's false...nobody in #9 and above will cry for a long long time. Second argument is playing another game dampens the student-athlete mantra and the crowd support at different games, making the bowls completely useless...false, this is has been a great bowl season and much excitement...and come on, using the student athlete as an excuse? they'll be fine.

Six teams- Power 5 champion and highest ranked non-Power 5 CHAMPION. #1 and #2 get byes. #3 plays #6, #4 plays #5 the week before Christmas. Winners play #1 and #2 New Years Day. Winners play as currently set. Forces Big 12 to title game.

8 teams should do the trick. I think the Baylor's & TCUs of the world had a legitimate shot.

4 is nice, 6 is better, and 8 is the sweet spot. Collapse FBS down to 8 conferences that designate 1 champion who represents the conference. No polls, no computers, just Ws and Ls!

Because it is fair, plus based on the football playoffs this year awesome football, and champs will be decided on the field, not in a meeting room.

Should go to 6 or 8, but not until the Big XII gets a conf championship game to get on the same footing as the other 4 power conferences.

16 teams. Whoever has the moxie to pull off 4 games deserves to be the champion.

Should be top 8. If ever other division in college football can have a real playoff system, why not Division 1?

Because it's the only fair way to run a National Title Tournament. 5 auto bids from power conferences and 3 at large picks.

It will boost competition levels and would further legitimize the eventual champion. Everyone knew Florida State would fold under stiff competition, but by virtue of their record, they made the cut. What if Oregon had played a more consistent team? I guess an argument could be made either way. A championship team performs under pressure regardless of opponent and record.

Too many games. Since all games count towards records, most achievements by good players will be overshadowed by those who played more games. For example: OJ Simpson rushed for 2003 yards in 14 games, but Eric Dickerson rushed for 2,105 yards in 16 games and is considered the all-time single season record holder.

If you're not 4the you can't possibly argue you're first. More teams tells you who's the best playoff team, not the best Team.

These young men are amateurs. Most of them will never sign a professional contract. A playoff exposes them to too much risk and it makes the regular season meaningless.

while I was wavering, for me it came down to the "too many games already"...four seems right and has just the right amount of hype!
