Default Re: Official Washington exposes Hawai\'i the Fraud Thread

If Hawaii is that good, they win in playoffs.

If Hawaii sucks, they get killed first round, discussion over.

This argument is illogical for advocating a playoff. If Hawaii is a fraud, they would likely take a playoff spot away from a team that actually had a better chance of winning than they did. It's not like the NCAA basketball tourney where almost any team that has even a remote chance of winning is included. In an 8-team playoff including Hawaii, it would probably exclude ASU and Tennessee would would both beat the [censored] out of Hawaii.

in addition to the huge advantage it would give the team seeded, mythically, as #1 with having one less game on the way to the title

I'm not saying a playoff system is perfect, no system is. But is a million times better than the trainwreck that exists now. I would much rather have a slightly flawed system where teams could fight it out on the field than a [censored] system based on popular opinion.
