There are going to be teams on the back end who get left out and it won't take long before people are screaming for a 16 game playoff. Again, even with the NCAA Tournament of 64 teams, there are always teams who feel the process was too arbitrary and they should have gone over someone else. There is no magic number that automatically gets it right.
I think 8 teams would suffice. Of course someone will be griping about being left out, but as w/ March Madness, no one will listen when it's that far out on the margin. And the 9th team in cfb is really and truly on the margin - USC? They have no leg to stand on, and I can't see any future 9th team having a gripe that should be taken seriously. This is not to say that I'm a fan of expanding the playoffs...I'm really not. Four is OK, as it amps up the overall interest in late November, which is preferable to losing sleep over the possibility of having to lug the Land Grant Trophy home again.
