The two best teams in college football were on that field last night. During March Madness, no one rails against a final game that pits Duke against North Carolina. No one would bat an eye. (Aside from Kentucky fans, perhaps.) Why is it different here?
Apples and asparagus.
March Madness has a tournament format. If Duke and UNC made it to the National Championship, it would be because they had to beat teams along the way to make it that far. The BCS is rankings based and has been criticized ever since its been put into play.
I loved the game as well. The SEC is hands down the best conference in all of college football. Nothing against the Big Ten or Big 12, but the SEC is just that dominant. It's better than trying to watch the Orange Bowl or Rose Bowl where it looks like an Arena League game.
