I don't know that "the system" had any choice but to pick Bama in a rematch. Most of the supporting evidence was in their favor. Really the only argument against choosing them over Okla State was that perhaps rematches should be avoided.
Regardless of how common sensible that may sound, it is not explicitly stated anywhere. So, I do not blame anyone for putting Bama ahead of OSU - that was the system in place.
If you want to blame anyone, try loking up the FG kickers for Boise State and OSU. Both of them missed chipshot FGs at the end of the game they both lost. If either of those kicks are made, we wouldn't have been facing Bama again.
Come on, man...this wasn't something that happened a century ago that we're trying to figure out over a history book. This JUST happened last year. OSU was the easy and logical pick after winning their conference, taking out OU, and after beating more nationally ranked teams than the latter.
I'm sure you're serious, and I can tell that you're playing the "I'm not upset, we just lost" role right now, but it's just plain false that Bama was "cleary" the only logical choice.
Oh, and go frick yourself.
