    I agree, it would be fun. However, it would get very expensive for the winning teams fans to travel 3 or 4 weeks in a row.

    I regret we may have reached an impasse.

    Go to 16. 10 conference champs and 6 at large spots. I don't think they'll do that, but I do think we could be looking at 6-8 by this time next year.

    Whether you want to admit it or not, cartels are very real things. The "Power 5" is a cartel.

    What is a 'Cartel'

    A cartel is an organization created from a formal agreement between a group of producers of a good or service to regulate supply in an effort to regulate or manipulate prices. In other words, a cartel is a collection of otherwise independent businesses or countries that act together as if they were a single producer and thus are able to fix prices for the goods they produce and the services they render without competition.

    Re: College Football Playoff

    I've been thinking about the next move for the cartel. Eight is logical, but I think they will hold off as long as possible. Many think this year w/out a Big 10 or PAC 12 will start the ball rolling. I don't believe rolling in 4 more bowl games into the mix will be a steep hill for them to climb.

    I don't believe 16 is doable for several reasons, but the main one being the watering down of 12 more of the top bowl games. As others have mentioned 4 weeks of fan travel is probably a big reason the cartel won't do it, but they'll never admit it. The cartel will never consider going back to 11 regular season games to provide more room for a 16 team playoff.

    Speaking of national championships...

    NDSU and JMU are hooking up in Frisco for the FCS title. Early lead to NDSU. I see the south EZ is open for seating, and the stadium is "near capacity."

    It's a neat little stadium.

    Good defensive game. The refs have been horrible.

    4 teams is just not enough to call this sham a playoff.

    If they create an 8 team playoff, the quarterfinals should be on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day at neutral bowl sites. That way there could be no conflict with December exams and only 4 teams would be playing after January 2 at the latest.

    A 12 or 16-team playoff could start the week after conference championships and quarterfinals could still be at New Year's. Conference championships could be moved up a week if playing the first round the second weekend in December raised academic objections.

    Any way you cut it there wouldn't be 4 straight weeks of fan travel.

    Week 1 - travel to Conference Championships (most teams)
    Week 2 - Bowl Games for 16 teams
    Week 3 - Bowl Games for 8 teams
    Week 4 - Bowl Games for 4 teams
    Week 5 - National Championship
