I'm confused by what you mean about screwing over a school that actually wants to host? If a school wants to host, they only have to put in a big bid. The schools that get screwed are the ones that should be the home team if the entire field was seeded, but have to travel because they were paired with a team that draws well. Montana State, for example, could be one of the last teams to make the playoff but they would then HOST a better team, because few teams in FCS can outdraw/outbid them.
