    They like to say their job is to pick the "best" 4 teams and I don't think anybody would put money on Ohio St. beating Alabama right now.
    There is nothing that I saw this season which would prove the contrary, that’s for sure. Alabama didn’t play anybody (as usual for the SEC), but they’re still a better team than Ohio State.
    No Pat McQuistan = No Super Bowl. It's that simple.

    Alabama didn’t even qualify to play in their own conference championship part of the playoff tournament. I was under the impression that the playoffs were the end result of a season long tournament. I would think that if you couldn’t win your own conference you don’t advance to the best of the final process. Some folks have Bama tatooed on their nutsack. It’s an outright slap in the face to the whole process if they get in. So what if the question is who is the best, if you can’t prove it at the conference level how in the world can you purport it for the national title?

    Ohio State was in Alabama's position last year and they put them in over the more deserving conference championship winner. Even though they didn't qualify to play in the Big 10 title game, the committee put them in just based on gut feeling. And what made it worse is Ohio State lost during the regular season to Penn State, but the committee still chose OSU over PSU. They just threw that head to head matchup completely out the window and went with their gut decision.

    I agree. The current format isnít a playoff, itís an invitational tournament. But whatevs, Iím tired of hating the system. Iím just going to enjoy this experience and hope we can do it again next year with most of this offense returning.

    Maybe, just maybe, if we have a top 15 preseason ranking and put up the same performance, weíll have a shot next year.

    It's alright. I understand it's an emotional event.

    Just think about the good times with Frost and things will eventually get better.
