Found a cool anti-playoff blog recently. I'll give you just a taste of the author's point-by-point rebuttal of a Gene Wojciechowski column:
Wojo: "USC, playing as well as anyone these days, finished 10-2, but still gets no soup."
Author: A typical playoff guy. The hot team at the end of the season takes it all. The BCS is unique in sports. It attempts to assess a team's entire body of work over the course of a season, not just give the crown to the hot hand who gets the breaks at the end. True, nobody wants to play USC right now either, and they won't have to because USC lost to a 41 point underdog at home! Nothing is more appropriate than these guys not getting the second chance they would have gotten in a playoff system. We have the BCS to thank for that.
