Expansion of the CFP Takes Away What Makes College Football Unique

Doug Gottlieb has been sounding the warning bell about expanding the College Football Playoff and nobody is listening. They have announced an expansion of the CFP to 12 teams starting next season, and Doug is concerned that will take away what has always made college football unique. The regular season will lose its importance and winning a conference won’t matter, just like in professional sports. He thinks college football is making a mistake by conceding to the public pressure to expand.

Doug Gottlieb: “They’ve given up that one thing that was unique...It really cuts at the heart of what makes college football unique, in that winning your league is an ultimate goal with an ultimate prize and it...feels like it’s greatly diminished here.”
