Pac-12 reading that it’s just the top 6 conference champs and not each P5
Nyara Sabally 🦆 Playmaker
was an all-Pac-12 selection in her first healthy season with the Ducks, averaging 12.9 points and 7.3 rebounds while leading the team in double-figure scoring games (19) and double-doubles (4).

Team Bama beat in SEC CG
3-loss Pac 12 winner
Iowa or Wisconsin
Boise State or Coastal Carolina
Texas team (cash bribe)
PSU or LSU (head coach cage match)
ACC team that played Clemson tough for 1.5 quarters
Florida team (ransom bribe)
The pros of no conference being guaranteed anything is it prevents a 7-5 Pitt scenario.
But there's a big con: If I'm Oregon, why would I schedule tough OOC and risk going 9-3, winning the Pac-12 and still not making it?
I just hope the Pac-12 makes a 12 team playoff. Fingers crossed.
With today’s news about the 12-team playoff recommendation, the Pac-12 should really consider an 8-game conference slate. Schedule one great OOC game and then a couple middle of the road, then FCS for a 12-game slate.
It’s quite something that in this new proposed College Football Playoff format that Pac-12 champion Oregon would have been left home in favor of Coastal Carolina.
If the 12-team model had been in place last year the SEC could have gotten four teams (No. 1 Alabama, No. 5 Texas A&M, No. 7 Florida, No. 9 Georgia) in the playoffs. No automatic bids. Pac-12 would have gotten left out.
Doing six highest ranked conference champs versus Power 5 champs and highest ranked Group of 5 feels like a little more elegant solution. Last year Pac-12 would have been left out for Sun Belt, but normal years probably won’t be like that. https://t.co/OsElbcgDYe
The Pac 12 seeing that only the 6 best conference champions would be guaranteed College Football Playoff bids https://t.co/azCAUXMyut
I don’t understand how people think expanding the playoffs will even the playing field. Good teams will continue to be good. Alabama, Clemson, Ohio state are not going anywhere. Imagine celebrating a first round exit bc your team plays a weak SOS in the Pac-12. Who wants that???
Get ready for some sick lineups of like four SEC teams, three B1G teams, 2 Big XII teams, one sacrificial Group of 5 lamb, one ACC team, and one Pac-12 team. This, I'm told, is a "better" setup for the Pac-12. https://t.co/qr7I76FkIK
Because some leagues (Pac-12, Big 12, all of G5) wanted auto bids and the SEC wanted something that had at least as many at-larges as the current four. https://t.co/12VGc1yfL6
The PAC-12 will not kill the 9 game schedule unless:
1. you convince the 4 California schools they don't need to play each other annually
2. You convince the NW schools they don't need to play in LA
3. They switch the bay area schools to the S division & move mtn schools N
lol under this setup the Pac-12 still would have gotten zero teams in for 2020 (obviously, covid played a role there, but still).
the idea that this is a system where two G5 teams could realistically make the playoff (because of the conference champion condition) is honestly amazing
they're overhauling the system, and it'll still mean the Pac 12 might not exist to the playoff some years.
I don’t like the overall proposal, I think it should be at least the 8 highest conf Champs, but this is a step in the right direction. This past year that would have excluded the MAC and C-USA if it was 8 highest, excludes PAC-12 and MWC for 6 highest.

Just in the Pac-12 era:
Winning record over other conferences
Dominant against the ACC
+14 against the Big Ten
On par with SEC/Big 12
Top half of the conference has a stellar non-con record
Quit being a clown 🤡 https://t.co/kwQLroijeX
If the Pac-12 has any brains at all, they’ll do away with divisions in the year this new CFP format is implemented.
Larry Scott is both wrong and right in this:
The schools would have generated more revenue with a shorter TV deal that allowed them to capture current market prices.
But he didn't hire Mora, Rich Rod, Helton, Helfrich, etc..
The AAC likely benefits the most from this and there are solid arguments the PAC-12 could really struggle to see their champ get an auto bid. https://t.co/MjHaxCbpbi
This would be one of the best outcomes possible.
The six highest ranked champions qualifying automatically also allows for multiple G5 teams to get autobids if one of the P5 has a down year like the PAC-12 did last season. https://t.co/SHEzSmBnCR
I’d love a survey of results of coaches who passed on Pac-12 positions.
✅ Less visibility on TV
✅ Lower Salary Pools
✅ Lesser facilities/campus commitment
✅ Less passionate fan bases
✅ Conference Leadership priorities

6 “top ranked champions” 🤔….let’s just say if the PAC 12 has a 3-4 loss champion. If 2 group of 5 champions are ranked higher than the PAC 12 champion, would those 2 group of five teams get the automatic qualifier?
Last year, this would have been:
3 Ohio State*
4 Notre Dame
5 Texas A&M
10 Iowa State
12 Coastal Carolina*
Which just so happens to be the Top 12 teams. Pac-12 Champ Oregon would stay home https://t.co/EBBTnxAgAP
