I couldn’t resist posting this quote:
Democrat Barack Obama told ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” it’s time for college football to pick a champion with a playoff system while Republican John McCain would put an end to performance-enhancing substances.
On the eve of the election, the two presidential candidates were interviewed via satellite by ESPN’s Chris Berman. The taped interviews aired during halftime of game between the Washington Redskins and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Both candidates were asked to name one thing they would change in sports.
“I think it is about time that we had playoffs in college football. I’m fed up with these computer rankings and this and that and the other,” Obama said. “Get eight teams—the top eight teams right at the end. You got a playoff. Decide on a National Champion.”
I’m curious about one thing: how would he decide which were the top eight teams, if he’s fed up with the computer rankings? Is he arguing that only conference champs need apply? If that’s the case, he just lost the Notre Dame vote.
