My prediction is 20 team max.
I don't know. I can see 2 or 3 "super conferences" of 24 teams. Possible that college football will no longer be part of the NCAA and the super conferences run the show for football. I could also see a scenario where there are 4 college football super conferences. B1G, SEC, Big 12 and some Mountain West/Sun Belt/AAC conglomerate.

I would like to stay at 18, but 24 may be inevitable.

1. Ohio State
2. Michigan
3. Michigan State
4. Indiana
5. Purdue
6. Illinois
7. Northwestern
8. Wisconsin
9. Minnesota
10. Iowa
11. Penn State
12. Nebraska
13. Rutgers
14. Maryland
15. UCLA
16. USC

17. Notre Dame
18. Stanford
19. Oregon
20. Washington
21. North Carolina
22. Clemson
23. Florida State
24. Miami

I see 17-20 as realistic possibilities, with 21-24 being dream shots with almost no chance of coming to fruition.

This would be my favorite configuration and almost every week would be like a bowl game for the foreseeable future. A gantlet but an entertaining season.

I don’t think 24 is the immediate goal or expectation. But if the conference WERE that large, a conference championship game would require a playoff of at least the top 4 teams.You can’t have 2 divisions that all play each other, and they are talking about chucking divisions anyway. Strength of schedule variability is just too large for the top two teams to be a fair representation.

Or does the postseason flow directly into an expanded national playoff? Would there be guaranteed spots in a larger playoff that included the SEC?

Other than scrapping divisions and having some protected rivalry games, I don’t think the B1G has to change much with just adding USC/UCLA. But if you also add Notre Dame and Stanford now (or also add two more of Washington, Oregon or North Carolina) the conference championship becomes another process that needs a new plan.

Could the post-season look like:
top 4 Big 10 playoff and top 4 SEC playoff and then the two champions meet? Would the SEC go for that? Each conference would control half of a very lucrative process. It’s an 8 team playoff, basically. Teams that aren’t in one of those leagues have no real access.

Teams like Clemson and Miami would wind up in the SEC, most likely. I really don’t know what the Baylors and TCUs of the world do. They’d have their own postseason, I guess. But the differential would grow where teams outside those two conferences were perceived as a lower level, and certainly that would be true for revenue.

That was a great time. Sad it has all been destroyed. Those conferences would still work today. Plenty of tv for everyone. Champions all play in a playoff.

Big East
ACC
SWC
SEC
PAC 10
BIG 10
Big 8
One at large

But nope, they had to destroy all of it. College football has ***** it’s own self.
