too funny, OSU? Did Urban buy that spot?! LOL

IMHO, it should be the top 8 teams, lets make this a real playoff system

Agreed.
There now are teams left out of the playoffs that could still make a case, though not sure how strong it would be, to have a shot at the national title; teams with only one loss. Eight teams would only add one extra week (vs. currently) to the season, and you're now including those teams that have an "outside" shot. The number 9 team would still complain, but you'll never make everyone happy 100% of the time.
The current playoff system is better than the way it has been, which IMHO is more closely related to a competition - think figure skating. You took the best teams and "voted" on who the champion was. Kinda like the Olympics where the supposed best figure skaters go at it, and the judges declare a winner. To me that is not how a football championship should be decided.
Four (selected) teams allowed to have a playoff is a good start, but eight teams increases the sample size enough to include all the LEGIT contenders and have an even number for the playoff format.

....and yes, I am a Baylor fan. I'm not saying any of the top 4 teams shouldn't be there; I'm saying that list of potential national championship teams is not complete. Baylor & TCU should be in that group of legitimate candidates. Miss State & Michigan State are oustide shots but you need either 4 or 8, and who knows. Any given Sunday (or Saturday)....... Oh and to prove I'm not a homer, if Baylor finished 9th or lower, I'd say they do not deserve to be in it.

yup Red, OSU sneaks in, some how...., Baylor and TCU should be in there, and the Miss teams had a helluva season, lets make it real, and whomever peaks at the right time, wins the whole thing. just like in the pros, if a wildcard team brings it together at the right time, they can win, what's wrong with that? And, like you said, maybe one more week? Right now they have extended this to like a week later? Or one year it was on the 10th? I don't even watch college football by then. I don't know about you, but I'm old school, college football should be done by new years, they all wrap up their seasons around thanksgiving anyway, perfect time to have the playoff system of 8 teams in their system.
Sorry number nine, the rules state 8 teams are in, I think most would be willing to accept that, I would

Add to FSU's cred: their star QB beats the rape rap and will play against Oregon. Last I saw FSU was 7.5 pt. underdogs.

Put up or shut up time. The refs sure are playing an outsized role.

I thought Alabama would win and Oregon would win by 20. Wrong twice.

The battle of the O is set. Both teams looked good this weekend. If Oregon can keep clicking, Ohio won't be able to keep up.

Boy did I miss my guesses....thought the Oregon / FSU game would be close and the 'bama / OSU game a blowout for the Tide.

That's why they play the games (and why I don't gamble!!!)
Just say "NO!" to WCP!!!!

Thanks Oregon! I had to do 250 push ups because I took you in the title game!

Young Mr. Elliott you are a stud!

Oregon Missing their top two receivers did not help. But credit to Ohio state. With Michigan also getting a top tier coach, these two teams will be great for years and their fierce rivalry will return to the limelight.
