CFB Playoff. Last night, the College Football Playoff Committee (I don’t really even know if this is what they are called) deemed that the top four teams are Ohio State, LSU, Alabama, and Penn State. ESPN’s Heather Dinich polled 62 college football head coaches about whether or not they would want to expand the playoff and 30 of the Power Five coaches think the playoff should expand. Texas Tech head football coach Matt Wells is in favor of expansion. Mike Gundy is also in favor of expansion and here are his thoughts:

Mike Gundy, Oklahoma State: There should be eight. If you win your conference, there’s five of us, you win that, you’re in. Then the Central Floridas of the world, the Boises of the world, who are 12-0, or whoever is the highest-ranked team, they should be in. As it sits right now, there’s not ever a school at that level that’s going to get in the playoff. Not gonna happen. You had Central Florida go 12-0 twice. And they didn’t get in, so that proves it’s not gonna happen. If Central Florida were to get in, you take them and you play them against the No. 4 team. You don’t put them against the No. 1 team. Let’s just say if they come in as the 8, they play the 4. That way it will be a more exciting and competitive game for the country to watch on TV.
