    CFB Random Thoughts Thread: 2017 edition

    All talk and discussion for items that may not deserve their own thread, including minor news and injury reports. If discussions grow larger, we can split them out into their own threads.

    Idea: Champions Conference
    Take the top two teams from each power five conference and three at large teams from the lesser conferences.
    These teams form the Champion's Conference for the following season.
    Each team plays the other 12 during the regular season.
    The top four teams make the playoffs, keeping the current structure. Also add a 3rd place game.
    The top three teams remain in the champions conference the following season.
    All the meaningless bowl games would continue to be played.
    The remainder of the conferences play their seasons with the prize being inclusion into the champions conference. (with the top three teams staying put, a spot may not necessarily open up for a given conference)

    One glaring flaw: The best team in CFB might not be in the champions conference, thus not eligible for the title.

    However with this format, there would be big-time drama week-in, week-out; not only in the champions conference, but for teams fighting for inclusion as well. The (ideally) top teams would not get to schedule any cream-puffs. The three schools from the lesser conferences get a legitimate shot at the title.

    Yeah that would be a tough one to overcome for me.
