What about Texas though? I could argue that they had a more difficult schedule than Alabama. So they should get in. Also, they beat Oklahoma. And Utah, undefeated season and has been a power for several seasons. So why leave them out? Regardless, this proved my point. A sloppy 8-team playoff creates controversy just like the BCS. A sloppy 8-team playoff "MIGHT" get us closer to a true national champion, but it doesn't guarantee it by any stretch. And personally, I just don't want to see a controversial playoff. And, I believe there is a correct way to do it, just need to start at the right steps, which is fixing the conference system first. Also, for all BCS-haters... Out of the 10 prior seasons, which season do you find that the "REAL" national champion didn't win the BCS championship? My biggest complaint, is the year Auburn went undefeated along with OU/USC. Any year that there are three major undefeated teams, it won't work. But any other season, I don't have a problem, and I believe the "True" national champion won the BCS championship game, including the year LSU/USC split the title which was bull****. It shoulda been LSU straight up for winning the BCS. And yeah, the champions were decided on the field. Throughout the season, allowing the best team to get to a title game.
