I am all for going back to the old bowl system, and taking the control out of the hands of a committee or computer.
Give me tie ins, and toss any team who either has fewer than 7 wins, or is not a conference champ. Let the talking heads pretend their important, by letting them declare their own National Champion, all while other polls make their declarations.
I do not mind having more than one National Title claim ... If the conversation is valid enough, it only strengthens the sport. And if these teams want to prove something against each other, let `em schedule a neutral site match up in the following season. Put up, or shut up.
I'm tired of the media trying to tell me what my opinion is. If espn wants the SEC to have 3 teams in the playoff, then have them put 4 of `em in, and become their official sponsor. It's what they want, anyways --- Then, afterwards, leave the rest of us alone.
"It is only impossible until it has been accomplished." ... then it becomes standardized ... and then it becomes regulation ...
Success is measured by results; whereas Character is measured through the means by which one achieves those results . . .
