A playoff hasn't "destroyed" the 500+ college football teams in FCS, D2, D3

What a FBS full, 16 team playoff *might* destroy is the current environment of having larger, wealthier universities act as informal developmental teams for the NFL. If the "stars" don't want to settle the championship of a sport on the playing field, rather than in corporate boardrooms, then so be it. Good riddance, and good luck in the pro ranks.

Last time I liked, college hoops is thriving despite the exodus of 1-and-done players to the pros every season. What makes college sports great is not the "stars", its the passion of people who want to cheer for anyone who suits up for their alma mater, regardless of that player's 40 time or vertical.

I look forward to the day when FBS eliminates the bogus conference championship exhibitions, eliminates the schedule padding, and each school plays an honest 11 game schedule with the goal of making a 16 team playoff. It works at every other level of football and the only reason it is not happening now is greed.
