Like marijuana decriminalization in Maryland, this is a step in the right direction. I would go even further with the six main FBS conference champions in college football automatically making the playoffs and have a six team playoff. Perhaps that will be the next step, five years from now, having a real playoff tournament to decide the FBS national college football champion of 12-13 teams, with the major conference champions and six wildcards. This first step is better than the current system of just two teams.
