For those (which includes me) who want the playoff expanded....

just a reminder that the #16 team would have been the first scrimage for Alabama on their way to the championship. So yes, every conference winner (if they did it that way) would get their "chance" at a national championship. Not sure how happy and overjoyed the #16 team (which would be the conference champion from the lowest ranked conference) would be about making a playoff and getting beat 63-0 by Alabama on Alabama's home field. Of course then the complaint is going to be that the P5 level teams always have the home advantage and play the lower ranked teams. If they do expand the playoff, it's never going to make fans of teams that don't realistically have a chance of winning a national championship happy. There is always going to be something unfair about it.

I believe only 12 teams have been in the 4 team playoff since it started. That leaves 53 P5 teams on the "inside" really on the outside looking in. Anyone thinking that making the AAC a true P6 conference is going to help that situation is probably mistaken.
