Death, Taxes and Bracket Creep
Benjamin Franklin said there are only two things certain in life - Death and Taxes. I'll add number three; Bracket Creep.
Just as March Madness has grown bigger and bigger, you can bet that within a decade or so, we'll be looking at a larger college football playoff - probably 8 or 16 teams. My question is this:
With an 8-team or 16-team playoff bracket, how would you prefer teams to be selected/seeded? Again, I'm not actually trying to debate the merits of a playoff - that's another conversation. If we were under a larger bracket system, how would you like teams to be chosen?
