Coaches not making a 12-team playoff regularly will be getting sent to the moon.

They’d be well on their way to Mars then!
There were 681 attempts to ban or restrict access to a record 1,651 different books in schools through August of this year. What books? Mainly those written by or about people of color or that deal with LGBTQ issues.

I feel like it is already. I guess it could get worse.

I think places like Texas A&M, Auburn, Tennessee, Florida, FSU and Nebraska will have quick triggers if you miss multiple years in a row.

Could this setup help the ACC, Big 12 and Pac 12 survive? Maybe.

They're not wrong:

@rollbamaroll: When Alabama is obliterating the MAC champion in Bryant Denny Stadium on New Year’s, I don’t want to hear a word.
You asked for this, because people just have a hard time accepting that good teams are good; and college football is and has always been about its oligarchs.

@PeteThamel: Sources: The CFP Board of Managers has decided on a 12-team College Football Playoff during today's meeting.


@PeteThamel: The 12-team model is expected to start in 2026, after the current contract, according to a source. There's still a chance that it could go earlier, but those details are complicated and would take some time to work out. https://twitter.com/PeteThamel/status/1565776097274236928

So no more Sani Flush Type Bowls in 2026? Which bowls will bid for the first round games and will the top traditional New Years Bowls (Rose Bowl etc.) get the quarterfinal rounds and the semi finals and finals played at different cities across the country?

I'd bet the first two rounds will be home games for the higher seeded teams, not bowl games.
As others have pointed out, while this may have veneer of giving the little guys a chance, the reality is it virtually guarantees the top programs are in the playoffs every year, even with a couple of regular season losses.
This is better for the Bamas, Ohio States and Georgias than it is the UCFs and Boise States.

I think it's better for both

I agree. I think it makes it much easier for a Cincinnati or UCF to take 1/12 spots from a big school than 1/4. Also, it will give them a chance to show they belong.

I think this really helps the schools like Wisconsin and others that always seemed to be on the fringe of truly competing for the Top 4.

And an undefeated MAC team picks up a 10 seed to face the 1-loss loser of the B1g championship.
Luke 6:45   ...A good man produces goodness from the good in his heart; an evil man produces evil out of his store of evil.   Each man speaks from his heart's abundance...

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.

But it’s better than the status quo where the MAC champion gets no shot.

In the AP article:

The top four seeds would be conference champions and receive byes into the second round. First-round games would be played on campuses and the rest at bowl sites.

Didn’t recognize Bret Bielema last night.

Think Huggins at his fattest and then imagine that Bret ate him for lunch.

Lol.  I may have mentioned that I heard a story about Bielema and Huggins, dining at Ruth's Chris (Madison) separately, on the same night, about an hour or so apart from each other.  Take a wild guess who the bartender at RC thought was awesome and who he thought was a colossal asshead?

One of the most wild 4th quarters anyone will ever see. UNC went in with a 20-point lead, blew it but held on.

Quirky stuff:

After App State blew its first 2-point conversion -- QB had WR wide open but overthrew slightly; WR still could have made the catch but he tried to backpedal instead of keep running -- they still trailed by 1 with 31 seconds left so they tried an onside kick. It went right to the UNC guy, and the game would have been over (except for kneel-downs) if he had just gone to the ground but he returned it for a TD, and the PAT made it an 8-point game. UNC then got flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct, which led to a great App State kickoff return to UNC's side of the field. App State scored again with a few seconds left but their QB was stopped inside the 1 on the conversion attempt.

Thank God teams like Oregon won’t be left out of the chance to show they can compete with teams like Georgia in the expanded Playoff format.
