Football Texture/iStockphoto(NEW YORK) -- According to a poll conducted by ESPN, FBS coaches rather have an eight-team playoff rather than the current four-team format.
The poll, which 103 of the 128 FBS coaches voted in, showed 44 percent prefer an eight-team playoff, 29 percent are happy with the current four-team playoff and 17 percent want a 16-team playoff.
Most off the coaches who voted for an eight-team playoff think that system should be comprised of the conference champions from each of the Power 5 conferences as well as either the top-ranked team from the Power 5 and the two-highest ranked at-large teams, or just the three-highest ranked at-large teams.
ACC commissioner John Swofford said earlier in the week that an eight-team playoff would probably be ideal.
"You have four teams that get a chance to play for the national championship, which is twice as many as before," Swofford said. "But whoever's fifth or sixth is not going to be happy. There will be some (Power 5) conferences that won't have a team in the playoff."
There was one coach who voted fo a 64-team playoff.
