I love College Football, and look forward to it all year. If I'm not attending our games I'm parked in front of College Gameday in the morning and watch into the night, right through College Football Final. So inevitably, I watch the inevitable and repetitive debate every year about instituting a playoff system.
Here's the thing: I don't care. If we never have a playoff that's fine by me. In fact, if we had no BCS and went back to traditional bowl games I would like that BETTER than the BCS. Why? Not sure, but I do know that I just can't work up the outrage of the typical journalist--"why don't we settle it on the field like every other sport--aaarrrggghhh". Perhaps I'm not anal, maybe I'm dumb, maybe I'm not enough of a fan. After all, the guy I voted for, our new president, is on record as saying he knows no serious fan that opposes a playoff. Hmm. Even though I like playoffs in every sport, for some reason the idea that we pick a champion from a poll--ok. Maybe (horrors) it's just a game and no one gets hurt by this. So save your outrage.
I used to think I had company in this POV, but am starting to think I'm now alone. Am I?
