Yeah you're right, I shouldn't have assumed you wanted them in the title game.

Maybe you do, but assuming it was bad. Sorry.

ESPN folks need to start mentioning OU for the national title. Doesn't get more clutch than pwning the #1.
Lol Georgia, if you don't win your division you don't play. Pretty easy :O

FWIW I don't like Ohio State. At all. I think they'll get crushed against either OU or LSU. (I don't see Georgia being voted No. 2, although stranger things have happened.)

If it was an undefeated Hawaii or a one-loss BCS conference champion like Ohio State, I'd take Ohio State almost every time. But I hate rewarding teams who lose twice, especially when the way the system works right now, if you want to win a national title, every game is supposed to be a playoff game of sorts.

I hate rewarding teams that end their season before Thanksgiving and still can't go undefeated.

I respect a 2 loss SEC champ way more than a 1 loss BigTen/Big12 champ. Especially when said losses never occured in regulation.

I don't know, the battle between undefeated teams with a bad SOS and one- or two-loss teams with much better SOS is always tough. No right answer.

Frankly, if I ran the NCAA, and could make it happen (which I wouldn't be able to because money talks), I'd eliminate conference title games, I'd make each conference be 12 teams or less, and I'd make everyone in every conference play everyone else in their conference at least once, so that if there are ties, they are decided by the heads-up winner. (Three-way ties would be a pain, I guess ... split that one up with points margin in games involving the three teams maybe.) If you're in, say, the ACC, you play 11 conference games and one out-of-conference.

I can dream.

I really don't see why it matters when you end your season.
