(CNN) -- When it comes to the horror of bringing a playoff system to the big boys of college football, there are several things for members of the Knee-Jerk Society of America to think about.The problem is, they don't wish to think. They prefer emotion.
Mostly, they fume over the current system that chooses a national champion through a combination of polls and computers with the so-called Bowl Championship Series. They say a playoff system is the best way to determine a champion on the field, and they are correct. But only if you ignore things you have to ... think about.
For instance: Name those screaming the loudest about a playoff system for the Alabamas, the Ohio States and the Southern Californias.
The fans? Yep, because they are, well, fans.
The coaches? Uh-huh. In their minds, a playoff system gives them the chance to add millions to their millions.
The media? Definitely. They have airwaves, cyberspace and newsprint to fill, and if you're ESPN or the networks, a playoff system gives you the chance to add billions to your billions.
Guess who gets ignored? The players.
