I’m on record as saying that the four-team playoff situation is a flawed solution to the problem college football fans everywhere are clamoring to have solved. That isn’t to say that the national championship game played last Monday night didn’t match up the two best teams in the land.
It most assuredly did (and what a great game it was).
The problem is that by going the route of choosing the “best” four teams instead of the four “most deserving” teams, there is a severe bias in the selection process favoring the teams that recruit the most talent. Alabama may as well write their ticket into football’s final four in perpetuity no matter who they schedule or how few SEC championships they actually win.
