My issue with 8- the Iron Bowl would have been meaningless.

That is just one example, but we would see similar situations every year. Alabama had already clinched their spot in the SEC title game prior to the Auburn game so what would their motivation be to play that game to win? The game that really matters to them would be the SEC title game the following week. If they go to 8 I would like to see the 1st round be on campus and that way teams are still competing for the top 4 spots for home field advantage. I would prefer 6 teams with the top 2 getting a bye. Then there is a clear advantage to being in the top 2.
