Mark Bradley Nails It
It's nice to have agreement from the AJC's one good columnist: Michigan is a slightly better team, Florida played a slightly tougher schedule, and the real villain is an idiotic system that forces highly flawed and often biased voters to choose between teams that are almost impossible to separate. There is real disagreement right now between Florida backers and Michigan backers, but there is almost uniform consensus that college football needs a more expansive post-season structure. I'm as opposed to a 16-team playoff as I am to the current system, but there are no good arguments against a plus-one format, especially now that the Championship Game takes place on January 8, extending the season and making a mockery of the "we want to protect the student-athletes" mantra of the university presidents.
