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

It wasn't so much the fact of the date but the lack of championship game.

True or False.. if MU was lucky enough to end their season without a championship game they would play for national title.

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

SEC is overrated

Undoubtedly true. I already said how I'd take care of this.

I did not mean to include Big 12 in that statement. That was an error.

Then again, teams in conferences with conference title games who don't make the game itself are almost never in that position.

I hate BCS crap so much and thats why I'm being antagonistic. People should play by the same rules to get into the title game. If I'm a conference I don't schedule championship games, my big rivals at end of year, etc. Every big game is early. So so so so so dumb.

Go Georgia, expose the system.

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.

Also,

I'm a CSU/CU fan so I don't have a horse in this race. Want to make that clear so there is no hint of homerism.

I totally get this statement, and I totally agree with you given what the system is.

Also, I absolutely DETEST preseason polls.

If it was up to me, the polls would not start at all until after week 5 at least.
