I take this system a 100 times out of 100. It's certainly not perfect. But you generally get two of the better teams playing each. Before it was all politics on who played who in a bowl. For example the SEC champion was slotted for the Sugar Bowl. They could play the 3rd best team from the Big 8 and still claim a national championship. You had no way to match up two of the best teams and call it a real champion.
