Another reason to expand the playoffs to 8 teams...

with a non-league champ winning the national title. I like the proposal of reducing the season to 11 games, all conferences play 9 league games, with two OOC against only Power 5 and Group of 5 teams. Use the conference championship as a play-in game. Five conference champs with 3 at-large spots. The money generated by the expanded playoff will more than cover the loss of one regular season game. Heck, this might even shake up ND enough to think hard about joining the ACC as a full member.
