Andy and Ari unite to parse details of a 12-team College Football Playoff. An expanded postseason presents opportunities not only for programs that have been on the sidelines during the four-team era, but also gives CFP incumbents a second chance at a title. Are stakes higher than they've ever been before, or is there less stress in a wider field? Are 12 teams too many? Who is the biggest winner in this decision? Will recruiting change because of an expanded playoff to benefit teams that, in past years, have been on the outside looking in? Which teams have the easiest paths? Plus, Ari's Home Depot anxieties, and which housewarming gift should Andy gift Ari?
