Gee, kinda makes all that whither BCS? hand wringing in the wake of the response to 2011’s Alabama-LSU’s rematch seem a little silly now. Overreact much?
Of course, the cherry on top of this particular sundae is that if the four-game playoff were in effect this season, we’d have a major controversy over the fourth-best team (Michigan State! Baylor! Tastes great, Lou! Less filling, Mark!).
Then again, that’s nothing that can’t be fixed with an eight-team playoff. More awesome sauce, please.
