It's not that black and white. What if OSU wouldn't have missed the FG and had actually beaten Iowa State. Does that make them a better team than they are now? I don't think so. So you're saying there's this huge gulf between Alabama and OSU. I don't think them winning that game would make that any different. But if OSU were undefeated, this wouldn't even be a debate as they would be playing LSU for the championship. But most everyone would still think Alabama was better. So if it's about the two best teams, it shouldn't matter if there are two undefeated teams. If there's a one loss team better than one of the undefeated teams, then based on what you're saying, shouldn't the one loss team get the nod?
So it's not about picking the two best teams, now it becomes about the two most "deserving" teams, which opens up a completely different can of worms. The entire thing is completely subjective with any 2 people having 2 different ideologies as to who should get picked.
It's all moot now, the rematch is going to happen. My guess it will be one of the lower rated games since the BCS started. Few people outside the southeast will have a lot of interest, IMO.
