CFP Rewind: Ohio State If The Playoffs Were Eight Teams Since Inception

It easy — if not fun — to ask what if, and that’s exactly where we’re doing today in looking back at the first four years of the College Football Playoff. But instead of re-examining what has taken place since everyone got downright giddy about a playoff that’s actually an “and-one,” we’re going to look at what would have happened if the powers that be would have done this thing right in the first place.

I mean, what would have happened if this whole original concept playoff deal were an eight team affair as opposed to a four-team beauty pageant of sorts. Better yet, how would it have affected Ohio State?

So here we go. We’ll start with 2014 and make our way through last year to see what the eight teams and matchups would have been. We’re not going to get crazy here. There could be a lot of things to hammer out by expanding the field, but the most simplistic format is a single elimination, eight-team seeded event where the higher seeds play the lower based on the CFP rankings and move through the bracket.

I know, revolutionary right?
