What makes you think there will be more upsets. Is the only upset in CFP history Ohio State in 2014?Anybody that is complaining about the 4-team CFP should realize that the 12-team version is gonna be awesome. There will be upsets and there will be programs outside of blue bloods getting their shot.
I'm sure people bitched when they expanded the hoops tournament from 32 or 48 to 64. But then what happened? Eventually a 15 beat a 2 seed - now it's happened 11 times. And then what else happened? A 16 finally beat a 1. Plenty of double-digit seeds have also made runs to the second weekend. Those upsets are unforgettable.
Comparing basketball and football is not really relevant. It's much easier to get variance in a game when one dominant shooting performance is enough to win. The more teams we get I think we'll see less upsets as the law of averages will lead to the team with more talent winning.
