The undefeated UCF Knights missed out on this season’s College Football Playoff. In fact, they were never seriously considered, before they went on to beat Auburn — a team that beat the two National Championship participants, Alabama and Georgia — in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl.
That has renewed talk about a need to expand the playoff field.
Unfortunately, if you are one of the people in favor of adding teams to the College Football Playoff, it’s not going to be happening anytime soon.
While speaking to the media in Atlanta on Friday, College Football Playoff executive director Bill Hancock said the current four-team playoff system, which is locked in until 2025, is here to stay for the foreseeable future.
“It would take a unanimous vote from all the conferences for that kind of movement to start,” Hancock said, via Bill Bender of The Sporting News. “Right now, that’s not in the cards.”
People had their issues with the BCS system for the longest time, so we’ve learned that their is no perfect way to determine the college football champion with so many teams across the nation.
So if there is any coach who wants to find a way to fix the flawed system, they have until 2025 to come up with a reasonable solution.
