What is the sound of one piston slapping?

So every year since the inception of the college football playoff, people have argued about what the right number of teams to have in the college football playoff is. I don’t think the author here really believes 8 is the right number but he’s going through the motions:

Case in point here is that I don’t think anyone really thinks that USC is deserving of being in the CFP. I do think each year there has been talent deeper than 4, and really I would be satisfied if just one more team got the ability to play their way in.

2014 - Big 12 collectively with its 11-1 Baylor/TCU co-champs. I think one of them should have been included. Flip a coin or argue on the Internet as you please.

2015 - Stanford was a really good 2 loss team. (And then you had the two one loss Big 10 teams. This year might be considered 3 odd men out I guess but I think you give Stanford the “go” in my proposed format because I think they were ending the season surging.

2016 - Penn State. Come on, they were the champs!

So maybe make 4/5 play against each other and that winner goes on to play 1.

And none of this matters to me because I’m in Oregon. Sad trombone.
