Agreed on the bolded. However, it's the last year you need to worry about it. The four team playoff starts next year. About January 7, we'll be hearing about how team #5 or team #6 didn't make the "playoffs" and that system will be ridiculous.

This system is FAR from perfect, but it is BETTER than what it used to be when a simple poll (or two) decided the champion. Can you imagine if ND went to a "lesser" bowl, won, and Alabama beat Oregon for example?

Looks like Brian Kelly will be the next coach of the Philadelphia Eagles. Wonder who ND will get next.

The Bears want to interview him, also. Some of the talking heads are speculating this is just leverage for him to get more money/longer contract out of ND, but I personally think he'll jump if he gets the chance to (just like he did here).
