And then I started thinking, what if the NFL adopted the college hoops format for its playoffs? How would that go over? You talk about changing the world ...

With the graphic at the top of this page, I present to you how last season's playoffs would've looked in this model, from Selection Sunday all the way through the Super Bowl.

I don't think we should change the current format. It's one, if not the best playoff format. College Football should definitely go this route.

NFL? No.

College football? Now you're talking. That would be bigger than March Madness.

yeah... I understand. It's not your fault...
It's ain't like the Texans were burnin' up the airwaves with news bulletins this week.


For what it's worth, I agree this is the way college football playoffs should be structured. Sixteen teams in the playoffs should be enough.
