    i would think the extra loss Ohio State has was also a big factor.
    or at least it should have played some role in it.

    So we agree. Actually hard to dispel Bama's legitimacy.

    not really.
    i can make valid arguments for or against any of the 3 teams gunning for that last spot.

    of course i’m not a big fan of anyone below spot #2 getting in. said so before we went to 4 teams.
    will still say so when we eventually fuck up the entire sport by going to 8.

    8 is enough. 16 would fuck it up.

    8 is at least 4 too many.

    I had to do a bit of driving around today. I listened to the high school state championship game between Catholic High and the New York Yankees of Louisiana high school football John Curtis. I don't know whether Curtis was undefeated or not but Catholic had 3 regular season losses, yet they beat JC for the title. Has their season been devalued somehow? I think there are 32 teams in the playoffs n each classification.

    I couldn't disagree more with the whole concept of devaluing the regular season. I think true Champions are defined when the pressure is on. Squeezing coal into diamonds so to speak. I believe an extended playoff brings out a true champion more than breezin through a regular season facing average opponents and compiling a gaudy record.
