'Bama had a chance to play LSU, Okie State didn't. 'Bama had them at HOME and lost, in what other sport do they then get to play for a title? That's like the Yanks losing Game 7 to the Sox in 2004 then playing for the WS.
UNC's D would have been one of the best of this generation, they had a good team w/ all the suspensions. W/ all the talent they lost they would have been a serious contender for the nat'l Title.
If there is a fair way to get multiple SEC teams that's ok, in the BB tourney you can have 4 teams from one conf make a FF if they earn it. CFB needs to find a fair way to select teams.
