Essentially since the inception of the College Football Playoff in 2014, pundits immediately began throwing out ideas of further expansion.

The original playoff merely resulted in two more teams getting a semifinal chance against No. 1 and 2 that were previously getting into the national championship game under the BCS system. Arguments surged over seasons where multiple Power 5 conference champions were left out or a strong SEC team finished No. 5 or a dominant Group of 5 program never got a shot. Remember UCF’s mythical national title?

Many would’ve thought the next logical move was to expand to eight teams — Power 5 conference champions, the best Group of 5 team and two at-large bids.
