Expanding the College Football Playoff from four to 12 teams
will fundamentally change the sport on the field and off – for better or worse.
More regular-season games will have playoff implications, but the biggest games
will no longer have winner-take-all tension. The new format will break up a
conference caste system fortified by the four-team model, but it won’t stop the
growing gap between haves and have nots. More teams will play in the
championship tournament. But a larger field probably won’t increase the number
of teams that have a realistic chance of winning the whole thing. The CFP is
getting bigger. Whether it’s getting better is a matter of personal preference.
