Cinderella blues

The guiding principle of the CFP selection committee is to select the four best teams in the country to play in a postseason tourney for the national title and college football is defined by its lack of program parity, so if you’re questioning the CFP as being “too predictable“, you’re doing it wrong.

  1. Surprise, surprise, surprise. The teams most people think are going to be good before the season end up as the ones that are good at the end. As Ric Flair would say,

    As long as Condoleezza is there to cast the deciding vote for Alabama, it’s all good.

    The committee is flawed because its member have inherent biases and the know the identities of the teams when they vote. I say let the computers do the selections like the BCS.

      Computers are programmed with bias (looking at you Sarigan). We should just bring some random dude from a foreign country who knows nothing about football and have him look at the data to make the call.

      Or a groundhog. They’re pretty good too.


    • The BCS would have picked the same 4 teams based on something I saw recently. Too lazy to provide the link.

      I think the only difference would have been to flip UGA and OU. We would have worn red in Pasadena.

      Right, Mayor. And continue to use that method when we go to 8 teams.

    Hard to believe Kansas hired Jeff Long as a.d. I suppose he gets his seat back on the selection committee now.
