Congratulations to Clemson University. Just think, if NC State doesn't miss that field goal we aren't talking about you winning a National Championship. Which is why the playoffs need more teams. Every single analyst and announcer was ready to give Bama the trophy without even playing the game. All you heard was, this is the best Defense Bama has ever had, this is the best Defense ever in the history of the NCAA. Stupid comments like this is why espn has been going downhill and if it weren't for their TV deals they would be toast. Well, that great Defense just gave up 35 points, 21 of them in the 4Q. Before last night that great Bama D had only given up 3 total TDs in the 4Q the whole season. Maybe that Defense had such low numbers because the teams they played had shit offenses??? Don't give me USC either because that is a different team than in September. Imagine if they expanded the Playoffs and we had more good teams that deserved to have a shot at a National Championship; like PSU or FSU or Oklahoma or USC or other deserving teams. It doesn't water down or make the regular season any less important either. Yea you could lose 2 games and still get in but if those 2 games are to crap opponents compared to quality opponents you're chances of getting in are very slim. I think they should bring back the BCS formula or have something similar to that to determine the 6, 8, 12, or however many teams they take instead of having a probably bought and paid for committee choosing who is in and where the teams play.
