    One reason to hate this: there's no sane person who'd rather see Saban win than see Gundy win.

    LOL. The BcS screws it up again. What a complete joke. I won't be watching this garbage.

    I honestly think this will lessen the interest the rest of the country has about college football. This is not a good thing in the bigger picture, IMO.

    I think they got it right. So it isn't a real screw up or a complete joke. In fact, I would imagine most of the country thinks they got it right.

    Irony: a "plus one" playoff would include Stanford but not Oregon.

There is no way to decide these things without all kinds of holes being present.
    We already know a two loss team can win the NC. It happened 4 yrs ago with LSU.

    there's no sane person who'd rather see Saban win than see ______ win. It doesn't matter who you put there, the answer is the same. Saban is the least likeable coach in college football, by a large margin.

    Here's actually why the BCS sucks: Va Tech vs Michigan in the Sugar Bowl. Awful.

    Yeah. Good point. Though Petrino isn't that much of a step up, either.

    Re: BCS blather

    I think it'd be much simpler if we'd just bag the whole BCS system and let's just start a new tradition of taking the top two SEC teams and let the rest of the country fight it out for the other Bowls. It'll save some poor sap from enduring another SEC beating...

    I sure don't get Mich earning a BCS game. Why not Mich St? There's a lot of more deserving teams and unlike the NC, this is pure politics where it was chosen based upon someone whim rather than a computer ranking. And to those that think this system is rigged towards the SEC, this is not a year that the Big Ten deserves two BCS bids. That's pure charity on the part of the BCS

    One of my really good friends had a minor run in with Saban a couple of years ago at the airport. She said he was a first class arse hole in every way. The security team that had to intervene agreed.

    Nor the ACC. Why not K-State?
