A little satire here for those who might be a little bored today. With a little truth and frustration mixed in. Alabama proved one of my points Monday night. There was no need for a play-offs period. Clemson was so much better, the game was a blow-out. Alabama did not even belong on the same field. We, as competent CF fans are being duped by all this playoff talk. Clemson is the unquestionable deserving champions. We should have just crown them as such on Dec 15th. I will try to avoid the facts here and just tell you how I feel right now. You can debate the facts with your replies. Feels to me like its ok for Alabama to get blown away with no remorse while Oklahoma ND et.al are just considered non-deserving imps that just waste our time. Some of you already knew who was the best and it was obvious. Wait, did you say Clemson? Were you saying Clemson back in November? I seem to recall many pundits mentioning how weak the ACC was and that Clemson almost lost their only real competitive game, Syracuse. My real point is that you can just be omniscient and name the obvious champion, Alabama, or the obvious 2 team deserving of the championship game, Alab-Clem. Or you can have an interesting 16 team play-off. OK I will keep it to just 8 for now. With a tournament, we all get to be involved and watch a variety of football. Some blowouts, some squeakers, some upsets and some "I told you so" games. As teams progress through the tournament, you can rally behind some and grow to despise others, you can make crazy predictions and brag when you are right. Mostly, with a tournament, you get to see a champion emerge, without depending on the experts to tell you why the also rans are also rans. Wait. Did we even need to play that boring game on Monday. I knew Clemson was far and away the best team before the season even started. Didn't you? Go Paws!
