On Thursday, June 10, the College Football Playoff administrative committee announced that they had recommended that the playoff expand from four to 12 teams, with six conference champs getting auto-bids with six at-large berths being given out in addition. LGHL co-managing editors Matt Tamanini and Gene Ross jumped on Zoom to record an emergency, instant reaction pod to get into the details and spin it forward to what it means for Ohio State and college football as a whole.

They discuss the fact that his almost guarantees that Ohio State will be in the playoffs every year for the foreseeable future, but they debate whether or not this expansion will lead to entertaining games, or whether it will just bread more postseason blowouts.
