The College Football Playoff management committee will consider expanding to a 12-team format when it meets in Chicago next week, marking the first step in what could be another historic change for the sport's postseason.

The three-page proposal, a copy of which was obtained by ESPN, calls for the bracket to include the six highest-ranked conference champions and the six remaining highest-ranked teams as determined by the CFP selection committee.

"No conference would qualify automatically and there would be no limit on the number of participants from a conference," the proposal states.

I'm glad they're expanding the playoff, but I'm surprised they didn't just go to 8 teams, rather than 12. I've heard several ESPN talking heads bemoaning the fact that a team could theoretically play as many as 17 games now...that it's just too many games for college kids. Of course, it's no different than FCS (and also D-II I suppose...I don't know if D-II teams are allowed to play 12-game schedules in certain years?) and I don't ever recall hearing anyone complain about teams at those lower levels playing that many games.

All the talking heads care about is FBS schools, they have almost zero regard for any lower division schools.

One option to lower the number of games is to get rid of the conference championships. That won’t happen though because there is too much money in those P5 conference championships.

I’ll add that the FCS and D-2 players actually have to go to class and most of any don’t have made-up majors for athletes. I know that plenty of FBS players take academics seriously but at Oregon I know they have tutors available for all players if needed.
