I am sympathetic to the idea of a college football playoff and I would support a 8 team playoff that included the bowls.  After watching the NFL  playoffs, I wonder if a playoff system would be any better at determining the best team. 

In the NFC the Philadelphia Eagles will play the Arizona Cardinals.  The Eagles were 9-6-1(the tie coming against the 4-11-1 Cincinnati Bengals) and the Cardinals were 9-7.  A team that wins 9 games in a 16 game season is not a good team.  It is a team that has reached the upper levels of mediocrity.

There are a lot of problems with how college football decides its champions but following pro sports and allowing a team that is slightly better then mediocre a shot at the championship is not the way to go.
