There's a real chance that the College Football Playoff expands from the current four-team format in the coming years, but coaches, media and fans are split on whether that should happen. The CFP semifinals are notorious for delivering low-quality blowouts, and that would only get worse by allowing more teams in — the No. 8-ranked team isn't going to have any better shot against Alabama in the first round than the No. 4 team.
The other side of the argument is that undefeated Group of Five teams have no shot in the current model and deserve the opportunity to play for a championship if they take care of business. Those teams often give Power Fives all they can handle in New Year's Six bowl games, with Cincinnati's narrow loss to Georgia in the Peach Bowl last season serving as the latest example.
Auburn coach Bryan Harsin has an interesting perspective on the debate, since he just arrived from Group of Five power Boise State. Harsin explained his stance on possible CFP expansion Wednesday during an appearance on the Paul Finebaum Show.
