Joe in the current system where the fifth ranked

 Joe Thomas of Sports Illustrated states, “Expand
the playoff to eight teams—five automatic bids for the Power 5 conferences and
three at-large teams” (par.3). The at large teams would allow for an undefeated
mid-major to make it in as well as the two other teams that have a strong
resume (Thomas par.3). This would create an environment where the ninth ranked
team is clamoring to get in but that’s a much easier pill to swallow than in
the current system where the fifth ranked team that may actually be highly qualified misses out. It’s also wise to assume
that by having more of the diversity in the playoffs that comes with having
more regional representation, it can be expected for viewership to be higher as
more fans watch to see how their favorite regional conference performs (Thomas par.6).
As with anything there are negatives to this opinion. Creating more games is
tough on college athletes that are not getting any additional funds for playing
extra games. In the spirit of competitive nature; however, the chance to play for
the National Championship is any player’s dream and the an eight-team playoff
will only ensure everyone is represented fairly.
