Simple solution……. Conference Champs verses Conference Champs and for the accounting of the Independents, let them work out a Conference Affiliation, as Notre Dame did with the ACC last season, from year to year with various conferences or permanently while remaining Independent…….. Performance and Results over the course of the regular season are the best way to go. IMHO 8) 8) 8)

I've said that for years. if the money weren't so good the NCAA would do something about it.

……..and therein lies the conflict, with teams wanting a path for access, while fans wanting their team a performance based opportunity, and the ‘CFP’ Parties wanting money.

It’ll be interesting to see how they juggle the balls going forward…… 8)

Now consider ...

The top four conference champions get a bye.

The arguments will still remain the same. Why wasn't my team in the top four? How is it fair that so & such gets a bye
instead of "insert bleeding heart fan base here"?

And of course the additional; Well, my team had just as good of a record as #12, why are we ranked #13 -- #14 -- #15 -- #16?
When are we going to expand to 16 and be fair? When are we going to include all ten conference champions?

All of this, and nothing gets changed.

Because the Top Four conference champs, will be the usual suspects, and have a more rested team, who had an extra two weeks to prepare.
Meanwhile; back at the Golden Dome ... Notre Dame makes their preseason plans for their annual playoff appearance.

And with the Power5 receiving the obligatory nod, the selection committee has already given themselves a buffer, by saying:
"See, you groups of 5ers? The Pac 12/ACC/Big XII didn't make the top four either. So, you're welcome."

Yep…….. a very political environment attempting to placate conferences, teams and fans in order to maintain control of the venture who’s purpose is motivated by profit……. It’s a recognized model of the political environment where power is first and foremost, wealth is an objective and the statements of the love of the people are soon left far behind. 8) 8) 8)
