Very few of the semifinal games been competitive. One went to OT, only two others were single digit games, eight of the 14 games were decided by 20+ points. Is the public really clamoring for more blowouts?

I find Notre Dame getting blown out to be very compelling television.

The public is clamoring for more playoff games and fewer Beef O'Brady Bowls.

Some of the highest-rated cable-TV programs in history have been college football playoff games.

As for past games being blowouts ... so? That says nothing about future games. And even if it does (which it doesn't), see the first part of my comment. The public clamors plenty.

Huh. But, wouldn't surprise me if this is Kliff's agent trying to score his client a fat raise.
Not that Schefty would ever do an agent's bidding ...

Adam Schefter @AdamSchefter
Oklahoma has targeted Cardinals’ HC Kliff Kingsbury as one of the potential replacements for Lincoln Riley, league sources tell ESPN.
Kingsbury has one year remaining on his contract after this season.

Schefter has no shame at all. One always kinda new how the game was played, but the OK job has been open for all of 10 minutes, I mean come on.

Florida hiring Billy Napier.
Another member of the Saban tree lands a head coaching job in the SEC.

LSU passed on offering him because they big boosters didn’t like the optics of hiring a coach from a smaller program, particularly one from within Louisiana. They’ll regret that one.

It's a good hire, but pretty big talk for a guy with an 0-2 playoff record and 1-3 in bowl games.

@PaoloUggetti: USC AD Mike Bohn: "It was never our goal to change the landscape of college football with one of the biggest moves in the history of the game, but we did exactly that. "

Yep. His record says he's a very good college football coach ... but he has exactly as many national titles as you do.

When Oklahoma hires you to replace him, their AD can call it an even bigger move in the history of the game!

It’s about acquiring the most talent in college football.  He’s already been crushing California recruiting at OU.  If he starts locking out the Alabama’s and Clemson’s that have been taking kids or at least keeping a few more home, he’ll have USC in the playoffs on a fairly regular basis.  Pete Carroll’s staffs killed it in recruiting.  Riley is young and energetic and has a reputation as an offensive genius.  It’s an incredible fit. 

Now, he could flame out for a variety of reasons but on paper, this hire could be a landscape changer, similar to Urban Meyer to Ohio State

There are only four active college coaches who have won a national championship.  Lincoln Riley not winning one after getting to the playoffs numerous times is the smallest of black marks.

So who's in the CFP?  UGA is a lock regardless of the SEC Championship game.  Mich, Cincy, and Bama should all be in "win and you're in, lose and you're nervous/out" territory.  Assuming those three don't go 3-0 (my money would be on Bama losing to UGA), who's next in line?  A 1 loss (assuming they win the B12) OKST coming off back-to-back top 10 wins?  A 1 loss ND with no good wins?  If everybody loses who gets in first between a 2 loss Bama, a 2 loss Mich, and a 1 loss Cincy?

If there is total chaos, I don't think expansion is necessarily the correct answer because then you'd get auto-bids that in theory could go/have gone to a 3 loss Utah team, or a Pitt team that lost to a bottom of the MAC West Western Michigan team. 

Personally I'd like to see UGA, Mich, Cincy, and OKST, just for the sake of seeing some new teams.  Even though I think UGA would roll all those teams, I think they'd also roll everyone else out there this year.
