The best argument for a playoff
I've never been a playoff guy, and still am not, but the last three years have provided compelling reasons to support one. In '04, an average Oklahoma team that probably shouldn't've been ranked was voted into the NC game. Then, in the last two years, we've seen 3 #1 vs. #2 matchups. Two of them - last year's Rose Bowl and this past weekend's Michigan -tOSU game - have featured games in which the teams combined for an average of 80 points. 80 points is not a championship game. 80 points is a reflection of media bias. The system in I-A football is theoretically superior to March Madness or any such silliness, but we've now apparently found the 200 biggest idiots in the world to make the voting decisions.
