Three weeks ago, I’m getting hammered by commenters here and elsewhere about the Apocalypse about to visit college football this season: omigawd, there are going to be three… no, four… no, five… no, six! undefeated BCS conference teams this year… we’ve got to have a playoff, stat!
Crazy talk, man.
But here we are, on the other side of some upsets that cleared out a lot of the underbrush in the rankings and I knew the other shoe was about to drop. And so it has:
… we need a playoff, the only way to yank a legitimate champion from another chaotic college football season.
Got it? It’s so easy, when you think about it.
If the season is predictable, we need a playoff. If the college season is chaotic, we need a playoff. If too many college powers go undefeated, we need a playoff. If not enough college powers go undefeated, we need a playoff.
For their proponents, playoffs are to college football as the Surge is to the Iraq War. No matter what, they work.

Exactly. Couldn’t have said it better myself.
Playoffs – good.
BCS – bad.
Like I always say, it’s so easy. 😉
