Since the inception of the College Football Playoff, there have been critics saying the four-team playoff doesn't offer enough opportunity to other programs. Fans are unhappy with the same teams playing in the playoff every year and want to see some variety.

Alabama is the main culprit, playing in all four, while Clemson made the trip to the playoff three times. Many college football fans think an expanded college football playoff would be good for the game.

If the season ended today, Alabama would take on Michigan and Notre Dame would face Clemson in the playoff. Just outside the top four are Georgia and Oklahoma.

Sooners fans decided to create an expanded playoff bracket that would afford Oklahoma a chance at the playoff.

The Sooners Football Fans Podcast Twitter account created a bracket for the top-16 teams in the nation.

Check it out.

A 16-team playoff would include some of the best games of the season. Penn State vs. Oklahoma, Ohio State vs. LSU, and UCF vs. Notre Dame would provide a few of the best story-lines of the season.

For now, we'll have to stick to the four-team playoff we currently have.
