The conference's members are against the College Football Playoff expansion, according to the commissioner.

The College Football Playoff isn't the right time to expand, according to the president of the Atlantic Coast Conference.

The concerns shared by the ACC programs were laid out by him.

There are several issues complicating the expansion of the CFP: length of season, academic calendar, student athletes healthcare, NCAA governance structure and federal legislation.

Why not support expansion now if the conference supports it in the future?
The impact of additional games on students, disruption of college athletics and a review of the football calendar are three concerns listed byPhillips.

For the first time in the eight-year history of the College Football Playoff, the Atlantic Coast Conference did not send a team to the tournament. Florida State and Notre Dame were the only ones to represent the conference once over the years.

The players weren't in favor of a longer schedule.

He said that they don't want to play more games.

In the past six years, it played 15 games, four of which were in the national championship game. The max games would be increased to 17 if there was a field of at least 12 teams.

The most recent proposal centered around a 12-team playoff with automatic bids for all of the Power Five conference champion and the top-ranked Group of Five champion, according to Craig Thompson.

The winners of the Power Five titles deserve a spot in the CFP field according to Kevin Warren.

Warren told Dinich that it's important that we have automatic qualification for the five conferences. If you are crowned the Big Ten champion, you should have an opportunity to participate in a national championship because of the demands of the schedule.

The Group of Five's belief that certain teams are given preferential treatment based on their brand is still not fixed, according to the commissioner of the American Athletic Conference.

The sides remained at a stalemate with no sign of a final agreement, according to Pete.

Bob Bowlsby said that everyone is more concerned with their own silo than someone else's.

Hope of expansion in the short term is starting to fade because of the lack of compromise.
