The funniest thing to me is that BYU is a better team than Notre Dame (and I mean that... they were one bad play away from a QB who has a broken back) from beating Notre Dame, and they pounded them up and down the field all game, and now Notre Dame is going to play in a National Championship game. If this doesn't show why a playoff is needed nothing does. Notre Dame wouldn't win their first playoff game, let alone make it to a national championship game. Whereas a team like BYU who sucks rhino and lost to San Jose State today could probably win a game or two in a playoff, having lost to Boise St. on a botched extra point and the previously described game against ND. Both teams would probably make it in, and they just aren't very good.
If it's all SEC, then I'm all not watching it at all. Absolutely zero interest. If Notre Dame plays, I'll watch the first quarter just to see if they are down by 48-0 yet.
