When asked about expanding the CFP, Swinney brought up the fact that every game is essentially a playoff game just to get to the playoffs.
Dabo Swinney: "Everyone wants to expand these playoffs. We’ve had a playoff since September. Every game has been a playoff game to get to this point"— Brett McMurphy (@Brett_McMurphy) January 6, 2019
Swinney is mostly right here with his point. By expanding the playoffs, the regular season will become less important. Clemson was able to make the playoffs by winning every game on their schedule. Teams like Ohio State suffered a bad loss and were left on the outside looking in.
Let's also be completely honest with the reality of college football. Do we really need extra games just to determine that Clemson and Alabama should play for the National Championship again?
Dabo hitting us with the don’t @ me approach when it comes to whether or not Alabama v Clemson every year is good for college football. “I’m not going to apologize for having a great team and great program. Neither is Coach Saban.”— Maria Martin (@Ria_Martin) January 6, 2019
The Clemson vs Alabama rivalry has been one of the most consistent in sports, but I'm not tired of it. Those have been the two best teams in the sport, or among the top four, for the last four years and the National Championship is supposed to be the matchup of those teams.
