is the likelihood that Alabama and LSU would have played for the championship no matter what system was in place. If they had each played one more game (against Oklahoma State and Stanford?), would that have made a rematch more legitimate?
Why? It still would have been the same two teams that faced off earlier in the season. It still would have been undefeated LSU vs one-loss Alabama. After 14 games, would one more game have made a difference?
