Now that the NCAA Football season is over.....................
Isn't it time for everyone to admit that changes need to be made??
1 Alabama (14-1) 1 -- the near consensus No.1 all season, needed to stage a comeback to beat Georgia only to be embarrassed by Clemson.
2 Clemson (15-0) 2 --- who did they play, really, before Alabama(Notre Dame doesn't count)??
3 Notre Dame (12-1) 3 --- they embarrassed the Playoff Committee with their performance.
4 Oklahoma (12-2) 5 --- lost a close game to Texas that they avenged and then lost to Alabama.
5 Georgia (11-3) 4 --- lost to Alabama and then embarrassed by Texas.
6 Ohio State (13-1) 6 --- embarrassed by Purdue in a mid-season Conference game.
7 Michigan (10-3) 7 --- beaten badly in their last two games.
8 UCF (12-1) 8 --- lost their QB and then their Bowl Game, never given a chance by the Committee even though their competition wasn't much different.
9 Washington (10-4) 11 --- PAC12, enough said.
10 Florida (10-3) --- probably not as good or bad than the rest of the Top 10.
Surely we can discuss and argue that some of these Teams shouldn't be in a Playoff, but why should a Team like Alabama be considered the Best all season, almost unanimously, only to be beaten so badly??? From my way of thinking there are only two choices and one will never be done, inter-conference play by the best Teams or an expanded Playoff. Garnett can argue, and have a good point, that Ohio State should have been in the Top Four, but so can many other fans of several Teams. An arbitrary selection made up of the likes of Condoleeza Rice and whoever makes no sense.
What makes less sense is for the accepted favorite and defending Champion to be taken out to the Wood Shed in the biggest game of the season, due to an arbitrary selection that meets resistance when "change" is mentioned.
The current system is broken.
