The only thing that matters is having a good enough record in your conference to make it to the conference championship game and then win it. Then playoff the conference champs seeding based off of SOS or wins or whatever anyone wants to do. Everyone has a conference championship now so that isn't even an issue. Single elimination - one and your done.
The notion I’m advocating and vetting here on the board wouldn’t have a conference championship game. That game would be a part of the 16 team 4 round playoff to determine the National Title. My reasoning behind it is a scenario where one team in the game would be 11-1 while the other would be 8–4 and the 8-4 team would upset the 11-1 team and make the playoff. That’s why I’m using only the cumulative points of each team amassed during the regular 12 game season...... along with consideration that there are 5 Power Five Conferences that causes a bracketing problem.
