First of all, please tell me that none of y’all plan on spending your entire day watching this bullshit.
This is, of course, the real reason the effing thing exists in the first place.
The sad reality is that there isn’t a need for anything more to cap this season off than Alabama and Clemson playing for all the marbles. TAMU and Notre Dame have already gotten their asses whipped by those two and it’s unlikely the script is going to change in a rematch. Ohio State has played six games and only faced two teams with a pulse (both games not so coincidentally being struggles for the Buckeyes). Cincinnati and Coastal Carolina are both great stories, but does anyone really see them coming within 17 points of the top two teams? Not gonna happen.
Which means we’re going to get a day of coaches whining about why their teams deserve a bid, pundits pushing their own bullshit narratives, Gary Barta’s inarticulate nonsense justifying the fix that was already in, and, as always, the usual anger when the choices are revealed as justification for another round of expansion that will be dismissed in the short run and embraced in the longer terms when the money’s there.
Ain’t college football great?
