Social media reacts to expansion of College Football Playoff

·6 min read

The long-awaited expansion of the College Football Playoff has come as the playoff board voted to move from four teams to 12. It’s been one of the more hotly debated topics for years, dating back to the expansion to four teams.

There’s concern that it waters down the product and that expansion changes little about who will be winning the title. Both of those things might be true. At the same time, expansion provides access to programs outside of the Power Five.

And while they may not win the thing, they’ll be able to partake in the revenue that comes from playing in the playoff. More revenue provides opportunities to create better facilities. Will the teams that are at the top now still be at the top? Sure. But the playoff opens the door for some programs to improve their college football lot in life with the hopes of building a program capable of competing with the teams at the top.

There are certainly pros and cons to expansion, but more meaningful games in December and January means more than the bowl system that’s set up.

Not everyone’s happy about it, but most are excited about the expansion of the College Football Playoff.
