FBS commissioners are seriously considering expanding the College Football Playoff into double digit teams. Why? They know you're bored, and they're tired of trying to defend the bowls.

Don't want to give too much away from the article, but it does look like auto-bids for all P5 conference champions as well as the auto-bid for the highest ranked G5 champion is a staple of any future format. They also know that any expansion would likely kill the Bowl ecosystem in place, and they are ok with it.
Personally, I'm ok with this. Give VT a direct and clear path to a national title that doesn't involve winning some sort of beauty contest, and it resolves a lot that is wrong about the sport right now.
