I recently covered why the NCAA should go with an 8-team playoff. Of course, Mark Emmert and the selection committee are too outdated to understand the numerous benefits of expanding the playoff. However, there still is a problem. The percentage of playoff teams in the college football format for eight squads is only 6%. Compare that to 21% for men's college basketball and that's underwhelming.
I know you're going to call for it to just stay at eight teams due to the promotion of 'mediocrity'. However, the whole selling point of the NCAA basketball tournament is March Madness. That means upsets happening and schools like George Mason and Gonzaga making it to the Final Four. That's what makes the tournament great; the concept of a Cinderella beating a heavy favorite and making a run is a great point.
So what would a 16-team field look like? For starters, every FBS conference would have an automatic bid. After that, you have six at-large bids. Let's take the 2020 field as an example.
My life! Food, sports, school. It's what it is!
