Yes, we know we’re complaining about an improvement. It’s like getting mad at the submarine for the window quality when they were previously swimming with screen doors.
Really, that is how bad the BCS system was before, where two teams were picked to play in the only game that mattered and the teams who were picked depended on their television viability and their program’s history.
That said, won’t we have that same problem with four playoff teams? And, if it needs to be increase, shouldn’t we get it right, and get it right right now?
You just know that when people suggest that it should be six, or eight, or 16 teams in, Oh, a year or so that the BCS will shrug their shoulders like a bad math teacher does in front of his/her Grade 5 class and say, “Jesus! Fine! Good! I’ve already done what you wanted! What MORE do you want me to do?!?“‘
Really, say the four teams last year were Oregon, Oklahoma State, Alabama, and LSU. Okay, so, what about Stanford? They can’t be happy knowing they only lost one game and they’re out while two-loss Oregon is in.
Of course, Oregon did lose to LSU in the first game of the season, which we can look back on and say was a pretty unfair opener. And, Oregon beat Stanford quite handily, so shouldn’t they get in above Stanford.
Oh, well, let’s put both Oregon and Stanford in then! That works!
Oh, but wait… you’ve got Oklahoma State floating around out there. You know, Justin Blackmon n’ all. They only lost one game, too, and it was to Iowa State.
I mean, Iowa State’s not that good, so maybe that knocks OK State down a peg? Then again, Stanford rebounded after their loss to Oregon, and Oregon followed up their big win against Stanford with a loss to lowly USC.
Plus, LSU beat Alabama in overtime during the regular season and then got manhandled by ‘Bama in the BCS Championship. (*Hindsight, hindsight.)
So, maybe head-to-head records don’t mean anything.
Okay, dammit, so who’s in the Final Four again? Oh, right. It’s Alabama and LSU, and Oregon and Stanford. No, Oklahoma State and Stanford. Oh, no. Oklahoma State and Oregon.
