    I think it is really delusional to think that a written tiebreaker would have made a lick of difference. When you hear the media throw around a new and completely arbitrary metric of "record against the top 60" you had to know they were looking for an excuse, any excuse to get that big 10 team in the playoff.

    After thinking about this a little more since my last post I wonder if conferences will break down into smaller ones, not consolidate into larger entities. If the TV money won't be there to entice the large conferences, will they all become Big XII-like? Will be an interesting future of college sports for sure.

    I don't think it was 100% the reason we missed out, but it gave them an excuse when we couldn't even announce one after the one true champion campaign. We needed to force the bias to be exposed quicker and not allow them any extra excuses.
