College Football Four-Team Playoff Consensus Reached

A college football four-team playoff proposal has been reached that would involve the top four teams with an emphasis on conference champions and be determined by a selection committee.

Here comes the college football playoff. Will it take a form that everyone likes?

Commissioners are opting for this particular stance regarding playoffs.

This whole proposed framework makes perfect sense. Using a top four model-only could be perceived as inflexible. Using a conference champions model might exclude at-large teams who have had potentially stronger seasons. This compromise should allow the best possible teams to play each other on a regular basis.

The selection committee could cloud things, but it ultimately makes more sense to have a dedicated group of experts (similar to the NCAA tournament) that follow the game and have a pulse on what's going on in the college football world. It'll cause the least rancor among all the proposals.
