    As far as abolishing playoffs, they are fun for the entertainment. I dont watch because I think the best team will win. That isnt the case often. NCAA football is different. I like playoffs, but their system is fun in its own right. Every single game of the season is huge. The best two teams square off more often than not. Its different than playoffs, but good in its own right.
    Nope, the '07 Giants were not better but they beat them and that is all that matters. You have to earn championships on the field, should we just vote on the champion?

    Every single game of the CFB season is not huge b/c most of the games are gimme games. There are a handful of big games in CFB every year. Teams only play a few tough games a year. I don't want a 64 team Tourney but an 8 or 16 team tourney would be great and it would be the best postseason in any sport- a title currently occupied by CBB.

    Pretty accurate.
    You play the reg season to earn a higher seed and get an easier path to a title but you still have to win on the court. It's like in any sport, in the NFL they play the reg season to see who gets homefield and who gets into the playoffs. It doesn't delegitimize reg season games but they give us true win or go home games unlike CFB where a champ can lose TWO games and still win it all. You can't do that in the NFL or CBB, it's win or you are done.

    Thats why I said I like playoffs for entertainment value, but they dont necessarily pick the best team. You just said what Ive been saying this entire time. CFB is different and fun because the two best teams almost always play eachother for the title. Its different and fun.

    But we don't know it is the 2 best teams and many years it may not be the 2 best teams. USC didn't get to play for the BCS in '03(I think it was '03), Nebraska made it in '01, FSU in '00, OSU back to back in '06 and '07,... The best teams are always playing and we really don't know who the best teams are unless they play each other anyway.

    The BCS gets the two best teams in the championship far more often than the tournament does that's for sure.

    But I was happy to hear Greenberg say what he did. Finally after all of these years this tournament is beginning to expose itself for what it really is and a lot of people are beginning to realize that the BCS might not be so bad afterall.

    Not really, they have gotten it right maybe 3-4 times since it began, we have seen many CBB title games w/ 2 teams that were considered the best most of the year.

    That's alot of years where the best teams weren't playing.

    I really think USC would have pushed LSU's **** in that 2003 season. Their D was sick.
