Nothing like blowing a good point about how leaving schools to assemble portions of their football schedules is a valid argument about unfairness and the D-1 postseason by writing this:
What makes the NFL playoff bracket work is what a new college system will need: integrity.
Last year, while the college game fussed over the worthiness of LSU’s opponent in the BCS title game — Alabama or Oklahoma State — there was nary a protest when the sixth-seeded New York Giants won the Super Bowl, or when the Denver Broncos at 8-8 make the playoffs as a division champion.
“Nary a protest”? Seriously?
I think I’m starting to get an allergic reaction to the use of the word integrity in the context of how sports organizations choose to separate the public from its money.
