To the point of a true playoff....16 teams, all conference champs receive automatic invite plus at large invites. College Football needs to bring Cinderella to the dance just like basketball does. Let the 16 seed (Sunbelt Champ) go on the road to play Alabama in round 1. Good luck with that. But the likelihood of a Notre Dame team making it through a playoff of top caliber teams would be slim and we would have had two high quality teams playing last night. Or a true Cinderella underdog that would have captured the country's attention. Instead we got a team with Cinderella talent and Goliath type hype in Notre Dame.
