What pisses me off about these discussions is that every year some 2nd tier team has a run and the media jumps on them and then people start complaining about how they are going to get screwed. Like Houston last year who was 7-0 at one point and people started to whine that they might get left out. Alabama's 2nd string would beat them! Look at the draft, you all know who had the best players. Would i love a real playoff? Hell yes! The idea of Alabama traveling to Columbus for a playoff game would be awesome. Michigan coming to Tuscaloosa or USC having to go to Nebraska and play in 25 degree weather. hell yes i would love that. Those types of games would be epic! I just don't see it ever happening.
