Nice rebuttal Roger!
"sound like a Bama fan" in that you are using opinion to say Bama was better.
No one is stupid enough to claim Okie State was better than Bama. No one.
The idea that they should get a do-over/second chance/rematch before a CC with the other factors I brought up does exactly what others in here have said; it rendered the regular season meaningless
LSU won the SEC, and that is never meaningless..
You can't have it both ways. Either "every game counts" as the BcS tells us or only 1 game matters.
The NCG is a one game "playoff".. period.
1-1 or 0-2. That was the scenario with putting Bama in. We already saw the game once. OSU deserved to go based on EVERYTHING we have seen from the BcS through the years.
That's the system we have until we get a playoff.
All day long team SEC would argue SOS, ranked teams, CC's, etc. Why does that suddenly disappear and a "good loss" take precedence?
Bama was better than Ok. State and everyone who knows anything about football and most who don't, understood that.
The system wasn't set up to prevent a rematch, so you ended up with the two best teams playing again. You don't have to be a "bama fan" to realize Bama and LSU were in a league of their own, no one else was even close.
