Wow. Take a look at Fox Sports’ analyst Joel Klatt’s take on the NCAA Playoff Committee. He just lets loose on what he thinks about how the playoff teams are chosen, and he brings up a lot of good points.
I agree with most of what he said here, but when you look at the entire season, Alabama had to be the fourth team in. Klatt says that there aren’t any quality wins by Alabama, but look at the way in which they’ve won. They have crushed every single team that they’ve played against, and just about every game looked like it was men against boys out there.
I do have to disclose that I am a Michigan fan, but Ohio State lost to Iowa, a team that is barely bowl eligible, and have two losses to Alabama’s one. Alabama lost a relatively close game to Auburn, and by the eye test, even though they aren’t the Alabama that we are used to seeing, they are certainly one of the best four teams in the nation.
What is interesting here is the point he brings up about how choosing the teams is such a subjective nature. I’m not sure what a better system would look like, but maybe that’s where the readers can help out. What do you guys think a better system would look like, or are we good with what we have currently?
