Huge 12 gamers, coaches discuss increasing faculty soccer playoffs

ARLINGTON, Texas – Many players and coaches spoke at the Big 12 Media Days about the possibility of expanding the College Football Playoff to 12 teams in the near future. Here’s what some of them had to say:

Terrel Bernard, Baylor linebacker

“There are simply more people who have the opportunity to compete for a national championship. I think it would be a great opportunity for guys who may have been disfellowshipped and who may have the opportunity to actually play for it, so I’m excited to see where it goes. “

Nik Bonitto, OR linebacker

“It’s exciting. I’d love it. I know many other programs would be welcome to do this. It’s an opportunity to play in the college football playoffs. Only for the group of five teams, I know they don’t have the chance had to get into the playoffs. I know it would be good for them to win a team or two. I think overall it will be good for college football. I know I wouldn’t complain about it to have more games. I know for sure it would be good. “

Leddie Brown, West Virginia linebacker

“I think it’s a great thing for other teams and more athletes to get the attention they need and want.”

Connor Galvin, Baylor offensive lineman

“I think it’s a good thing because a lot of the teams were very close to the playoffs and since there are four teams they say, ‘Well, there are only four teams that can do a little more towards the end of the season Add wear and tear, but I think it will be good for the competition. All games are important. It will add even more to that in my opinion. “

Mike Gundy, Oklahoma state coach

“I know very little about the details. I’ve only seen little things here and there. It’s a little unfair of me to comment on that. And it’s one of those themes that somebody does at some point, and then we play by those rules. “

Breece Hall, Iowa State is running back

“It’s going to be great to have these teams that could have done it, should have done it, could have done it. It’s going to be a really big thing that these teams are able to compete for it. You can see some shock upsets or whatever the case. “

Riko Jeffers, Texas tech linebacker

“When you talk about player safety issues, you have to think about the NFL. The NFL plays what, 16-17 games in a normal season? So I don’t think it’s a big player problem as long as you have the right people around you, who make sure that their injuries are taken care of and also give many other players the opportunity to show their talent on this big stage. When it’s time for the college playoffs everyone gets ready, it’s something not to be missed. “

Bijan Robinson, Texas is running back

“If that’s what it takes to improve college football, I’m for it. I enjoyed watching the four teams but if it ever expands it would be a cool opportunity for other teams to jump in and see what they can too and not just limit it to four, but maybe eight, 12. “

Malcolm Rodriguez, OSU linebacker

“I think it’s a good thing. Get a couple of teams to sneak in there that can go undefeated. Who was that this year? UCF? They went undefeated and knocked out so I think it’s good to open it up a bit and I can’t wait to see what happens. “
