Making Sense Of It……

The College Football Committee released its first standing last night for the first 4 team playoff this year. As you might imagine, there is an uproar from many fan bases. And as expected, no matter the formula or committee, there is always going to be complaints. Heck, I was against the BCS system as I thought it was bogus a computer chooses who plays for the national title. Looking back on it, they got it right almost all of the time. There will never be a perfect system the way college football is set up now a days.
