If Liberty was placed in the CFP, after they fattened up on the Sam Houstons, Old Dominions and Jacksonville States all season, their first playoff opponent (Georgia?, 'Bama?) would destroy them by a gazillion points and invalidate the entire playoff process.

Nobody here is really earnestly arguing for Liberty, though in a vacuum, I would.  The playoffs are a system of a bigger problem.  If self-scheduling and weak conferences allow you to be garbage and go unbeaten, that's the problem.  Regulate the scheduling if this is true.  Else, why are they games played?

^^^ Nah, they fixed it already by increasing the number of playoff teams starting next year, which is what most college fans were asking for all along.

Next year, FSU would be in, and - God help us - so would Liberty (look, a bebu!)

I'd like a system where undefeated teams get in regardless.  If 12 teams lets you do that, then that's fine.

Just a little semi-smirking follow-up on this.  The two teams that people were considering for the CFP, 13-0 Florida State and 13-0 Liberty. Those programs played two other teams that missed the playoffs, Georgia and Oregon, and lost those two games by a combined score of 108-9.  No, that is not a misprint.

I heard Georgia's coach Kirby Smart give an interview after their 63-3 whooping of FSU.  According to Smart, a big reason why the game was not competitive is that many of FSU's starters apparently saw no reason to endanger their NFL prospects for a "meaningless" (i.e. non-playoff) bowl game and chose not to play (a problem that Smart says we need to "fix").

I don't really follow college football and can't speak to the number of FSU's starters that sat out, but that's what Kirby Smart was complaining about after the game, so he seemed to think that particular score was misleading.

No caveat that FSU players gave up on the program and the team prior to the game?

Players are always missing come playoff time. As a final comment...FSU didn't deserve to be in the CFP.
