Sorry but that would never work

First of all, there are not enough non-P5 fans to make a difference. And some of the biggest non-P5 fans were glued to the TV last night watching a true national championship. (Those who say it wasn't will be cast aside by reality). And their interest in the game would override their "demand for fairness."

Now one way something could be forced would be if every non-P5 FBS and all FCS teams agreed not to play any P5 team. That could cause they some serious problems but that is not realistic because there is no way in the world they would all agree to it or forfeit the money and the games with P5 teams. And, if they did, it would be the catalyst for the P5 breaking off forever taking with them the overwhelming majority of fans nationally and most of the money.

Finally, we just went through a 4 team playoff where the 3 best teams - without serious question- were part of the 4 team playoff and the winner was without any question the best team in college football. So few people right now are concerned that the Mac Champion didn't get the chance to lose by 70 points to LSU in what would be a home scrimmage for them.

I'm fine with a 16 team playoff by the way. But anyone expecting to see non-P5 teams in the final 4 are going to be disappointed for decades to come. College football and college basketball are much to different. There would be no Cinderella's in a Division 1A football playoff. Midnight would be coming down hard.
