    'Playoff'.....

    if the model is top 4 teams, then really a playoff? thin disguise for little/no change?...

    subjective based on ranking system
    current system +1

    if a playoff really wanted, seems to me like better way to go is conference champions plus at large picks mixing the 2 in a 8 team format. at large picked by committee or rankins. eliminate conference championship games, replace with 1st round at higher ranked schools home field 2 weeks after finish of reg season. use bowl structure for 2nd round and then plus 1 at designated venue. only ends up 1 more game.

    of course, logistics is an issue, cuts one week out of fans planning based on knowing what 'bowl' you would be in.

    The semi final sites could host a consolation game the day before the semis to eliminate some of the logistics issues.
