The College Football Playoff has only been in existence for a couple of years. Since it debuted back in 2015, it has featured four teams. And it doesn't seem like that's going to change anytime soon.

Several coaches, though, have publicly stated that they would like it to.

Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh revealed his idea for the College Football Playoff today.

Harbaugh wants the four-team playoff to be expanded to eight teams. Eventually, he would like it to get to 16 teams.

Michigan's coach thinks when it reaches 16 teams, you could get rid of conference championship games.

A lot of the college football world (even though some of them are joking) agrees with Harbaugh. A bigger College Football Playoff, even if it's just six teams, would probably provide more excitement and intrigue for the sport.
