If they go to 8 and coaches are concerned with back to back to back "sledgehammers" let's start the quarter finals two weeks after the CCG, Final 4 on New Years Bowls, and NCG two weeks thereafter. It guarantees a bye week for all playoff teams between games. Consumers won't have to wait a month for the playoffs.
My concern is how does the committee determine the at large? Would a CCG loser trump an elite division one loss runner up if that team lost a tiebreaker??
