  • The Herd with Colin Cowherd

    Would a CFP expansion be good for College Football?

      "It doesn't matter in post season play" wouldn't they be trying to win the west? If you win the west, you can play for the SEC title, and that AQ spot, so yes, it would matter.

      You would also schedule tough non-conference games to boost strength of schedule, in case you are a one-loss team that doesn't win their respected conference. In that case you could fight for one of the three at-large bids. The regular season may be diminished a tad, but not to the degree

      Herman Lin is that a joke? Did you make it nonsense on purpose so everyone gets confused when they try to understand?

      spuh fife Ohio State might have the actual best offensive line in college football and that’s not an exaggeration. What are you talking about.

      The Herd with Colin Cowherd Duh. Makes more money, barely extends the season and only does so for a few select teams. Adding one or two more games isn't going to make the regular season any less meaningful, that's just some absolute garbage.

    I think they ranked Alabama at 3 for the exact opposite reason. They put bama at 3 so if they did lose to Lsu they can still put them at 4 because they lost to the number 2 team. Im really surprised they didn’t put lsu at #1 to make this point even stronger.

          At the end of the day most college football fans want an 8 team playoff and that’s why they will expand, the idea that less people will watch college football bc of an 8 team playoff is so dumb

            I’m still watching LSU vs Bama if there’s an 8 team playoff, the regular season matters still with 8 teams the only difference is a team can lose 1 or 2 games with good sos. I’m sorry any one who argues that less competition and games is good for the sport is stupid

                        A rule should be made only one team from the conference can be in CFP and you must be in a conference. Meaning ND doesn't ever qualify or any other independent until they join a conference and you must win the conference championship bottom line

                                What we have in place now I think is as close to the ideal as we can possibly get without making an overhaul. It's in FACT a double-elimination championship. Teams that lose two games are excluded. If we include eight then that paradigm changes to three. Sixteen it's four and so on. There's nothing to be gained by including additional teams in the championship. Zip. Nada. Nothing. It's a terrible idea. It will ruin the sport. By the way eight was prohibitive in the BCS. That's why they included a fifth bowl. That element hasn't changed. Eight won't address access appropriately. It's a bad idea. It is.

                                  Let’s remind ourselves the trash talk Ohio state did then took a severe beating by Clemson couldn’t even get a field goal but some how they see them selves the top and heavy weights

                                    No matter what this idiot wil automatically tell ya that Ohio state has the toughest conference despite the the rankings of the top ten teams ranked .
                                    But seems they go by the teams who are ranked lower than the top ten because apparently they are the hardest teams hmmm I smell rats

                                        I would love an expansion in College Football even if they just added 3 more weeks to regular season! Who with me! 3 more weeks of College Football!

                                          1. LSU
                                          2. Ohio State
                                          3. Alabama
                                          4. Oregon
                                          That’s my final picture. Also, I really want to see an OSU v Oregon rematch or Ohio State facing off against a former Quaterback of their’s. This could be an interesting year for the playoffs...

                                              Ohio state is not going to beat both Clemson and the top SEC team or the top 2 SEC teams. We've seen this story over and over and Ohio state doesn't measure up

                                                          @12:30 I agree with Klatt. For the casual fans, a ‘bama vs. LSU game in the regular season would mean less over time with an 8-team playoff. Maybe not the first or second year of the 8-team playoff but over time, some of the rivalry games and current “big games” would matter less because 1 and 2 loss teams in Power conferences would still get playoff bids anyway. So the regular season WOULD mean less. Agree with Joel. Although it would give way to out of conference rivalries to take shape via a larger playoff format (i.e. Clemson vs. ‘bama).

                                                              Oregon lost to a true freshman making his first career start. They've also beaten a lot of teams that have huge flaws and so-so seasons. As it stands now, I think it'll be Ohio State, LSU, Clemson, and Alabama. Ohio State-Bama and LSU-Clemson in the first round.

There’s no reason for a automatic bid. Make the schedules tougher universally and do a 8 team playoff based off of weekly rankings. I don’t understand why that is such a hard thing to do...
