If it was literally most valuable player, wouldn't Peyton Manning just win by default every season?
I think you have to go by who had the best year. At least that's what they'...

[quote]This is it for them. Will be funny af if they lose to FSU in the semifinals. Then we'll hear people talking about how overrated they've been for years now and they'll become the new crown holder for teams who constantly lose big games. But, I don't think they'll beat FSU. It'll be close but u...

When the #5 team truly has a case as the best team in the country, they'll have a right to complain. I don't see that happening. It's happened a couple times with the #3 team (USC 03, auburn 04) so that's why the BCS wasn't enough. When it happens with #5, then maybe we need to expand the playoff.

They do weekly rankings because it brings in $$. But the weekly rankings should not hold too much weight; of the committee feels they have made an error they should be able to "correct" it even if it means dropping a team that won a couple of spots. ...

[quote]It would be Bama FSU. Oregon would get left out. [/quote]
This would still be far worse than leaving out tcu or Baylor or OSU from a 4 team playoff. You'd be leaving a team many view as the best team in the country with no shot at the title. That won't happen this year because of the 4 te...

Agreed. People even complain about NFL teams getting left out of the playoffs even though the system is not subjective at all. See the 11-5 Patriots in 2008.
Also, I guarantee the fans of whichever team has to travel to NO to play the 7-9 saints in the playoffs will bitch and whine like no tomorr...

You couldn't seriously argue that TCU, OSU, or Baylor is more deserving than Bama or Oregon.
With the BCS, it'd be a case of unbeaten, very unimpressive FSU vs very impressive Oregon with 1 loss. Imagine what a cluster frick that would be. Far worse than the current situation....

Right now an undefeated, defending champ FSU would be on the brink of being left out of the NC (which would be Bama vs Oregon). Yeah a 4 team playoff will cause some debate. But at least every team with a legitimate claim as best in the nation will be in included. Usually there are 2-3 such teams ea...
