There have been calls to expand the College Football playoff to eight teams or more since the system replaced the controversial BCS in 2014, and a handful of fanbases will undoubtedly feel wronged when the selection committee announced its four choices for this year’s tournament.
Fans and analysts have the same debates each and every year. Does the SEC deserve to have multiple teams included? Should an undefeated team outside the Power 5 get the nod over a 1-loss powerhouse? In theory, expanding the Playoff to eight teams would ensure that most of the truly deserving programs have a shot to compete for a title.
Tim Tebow, however, believes the Playoff is perfect with only four teams. Tebow explained Friday that be believes a smaller field keeps the regular season interesting, and makes it so that every week matters.
“I like it at four. I like it at four because the thing about college football and why it’s so special is every single week matters. That’s why it’s different than college basketball, it’s different than college baseball. Shoot, it’s different than the NFL. College football is special because every week matters, and if you fall, you might not get another chance.
Now, the four-team playoff… it gives you a chance maybe, if you fall once, to still get in. But you have to hope and you have to pray and other teams have to lose. But if you open it up to six or eight, then I think you dumb down the regular season. You dumb down these big games that are happening every week, and I want to keep what is special about college football special.
…. Or else let’s just turn it into 64 teams and play March Madness again. I only watch college basketball in March, for March Madness. You don’t need to watch the regular season.”
