    You don't see the contradiction in this? Think about it for a minute and I'll give you a hint of where I'm going with it. San Antonio Spurs and David Stern getting mad.

    Current BCS Rankings:

    1 Notre Dame 12-0
    2 Alabama 12-1
    3 Florida 11-1
    4 Oregon 11-1
    5 Kansas State 11-1
    6 Stanford 11-2
    7 Georgia 11-2
    8 LSU 10-2
    9 Texas A&M 10-2
    10 South Carolina 10-2
    11 Oklahoma 10-2
    12 Florida State 11-2
    13 Oregon State 9-3
    14 Clemson 10-2
    15 Northern Illinois 12-1
    16 Nebraska 10-3

    Top4 is plenty, if they want to push it to 6 I can possibly see it, but there's never been a 7th ranked team (rarely even a fourth ranked team) that can legitimately lay claim to being the best.

    Top8+ just cheapens the regular season.
    I NEVER want to see a playoff where a 7-5 Wisconsin team can get hot at the right moment, and win a BCSNC...
    what would that do for the college game?

    This isnt pro football, every game counts, and I want to keep it that way...imperfect or not!

    Your comment contradicts itself...
    15th ranked Texas A&M beat us...yet you say being ranked highly lets you play easier games...

    bottom line; there are really no easy games...

    what a large 'playoff' does is allow a team to get 'hot' at the right moment and win a couple games...
    not reward a team for a full season of excellence...

    current system is flawed, but to me, that system would be more than flawed...it would completely change the sport from what we currently know...

    I agree. If we took a sixteen team playoff it would guarantee a two-three game cushion teams would have to manipulate. In other words you'd have teams use the line of thinking that they are not going to make it to their conference championship but we have enough wins to make into the playoff. So to prepare for the playoffs we can start resting players, maybe not put as much emphasis on winning the last one to two games because we already know we're in.


    P.S. Aaron Rodgers is a punk. I don't care how those "discount double check" commercials portray him. I'm shocked him and Favre survived that long together with the egos and attitudes those two tote around.

    He's still mad that Texas went to the Rose Bowl instead of Cal and then they got beat by Texas Tech.

    The dumb luck 7-5 teams that win a playoff would be SEC teams.

    the day a 7-5 team wins would be a sad day no matter what conference they're from...would cheapen the championship.

    A playoff would also allow room for a team to improve over a season's time. Some may call this "getting hot", but it can also be due to young players maturing.

    just depends on what you think the game should be about...
    rewarding a team for navigating a schedule for the entirety of a season
    .. or for players developing and getting 'hot' at the end of a season...

    I agree. As it sits right now, the most important game in my eyes, we just played and won. The SEC Championship. To me, the Notre Dame game is just another game that i want us to win. The National Championship as it is now is so subjective it's not even worth arguing about. I mean, who's to say that any combination of Notre Dame, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Oregon, Texas A & M, Kansas State, LSU, or Stanford would hold any more or less value as a measure of a true National Championship game as the ND/Bama game will provide?

    Don't get me wrong. I love Alabama and want us to crush ND. I'm just not one of those who beats his chest saying we're the best team in the country when we all know that we have a current system that doesn't ever give anyone the chance to really prove it. We just play the hand we're dealt. 14-0 is my goal for Bama every year. If we went undefeated and they voted us #6, who cares. All we did was win our games, the only thing we could control.
    JUST WIN

    woudl it sit better with you if in a 16 team playoff if a 5 loss team beat us to win it all, just because they got hot on a saturday...even after we had went 13-0 during the season?
    maybe because they rested their players an extra couple weeks because they didnt have a shot at a conference crown?

    No system is perfect....im just not convinced that a large playoff is any better. Im not against the 4 teams, because that might provide clarity in some years, but to include teams with 2-3 (or more) losses because they make the top 16 just destroys the regular season to me...

    The only thing more off than this thread title was the title of that article.

    I just put them on the coffee table for recruits to look at
    -Coach Saban when asked if he wears his championship rings.

    'Im sorry, folks outside of SEC country, but a few facts are incontrovertible. They smoke better barbecue than you. Their women are prettier than your women. They play football better than your schools play football.
