Following up, I have to say one thing: folks, we already have a college football playoff.
It’s called the BCS.
It’s a one-game playoff for a mythical national championship.
No one wants to call it that, but that’s what it is.
Because the system for determining who is involved is so screwy, and because only two teams are selected, it’s highly controversial.
That doesn’t mean that it’s a playoff system.
If you’re dissatisfied with the BCS, you shouldn’t say, “I want a playoff.” You should say, “I want a better playoff, and I want people to call it a playoff.”
