The talks of change to the college football playoff model going to 12 teams has brought up the question that it probably won't change the top teams (Alabama, Clemson, OSU, OU) from continuing to dominate recruiting rankings. This makes it difficult for teams in the second and third tiers from ever having a realistic shot at winning a national title.
While there are other things that would need to be changed if scholarship limits were decreased (shorter games, fewer games, more ease for medical redshirts, etc.), as well as Title IX considerations, I feel like this is a good step in helping to fight talent consolidation. If top teams can take fewer prospects, the players will go to other schools to (hopefully) make them more competitive.
To continue the discussion, what other options exist to help level the playing field?
