That is, the Bowl Championship Series Best Case Scenario. Since the powers that be are making sure that we don’t get a college football playoff (and I know not everybody wants one, but what I’ve seen indicates that a big majority of fans do), the next best thing is the annual How-Will-It-Fail-This-Year? watch. Sometimes you get a clean win for the system, but not often.
So after yesterday’s results, it looks like the fun scenario this year features:
- Michigan getting the rematch invite (which you gotta love if you’re Ohio “Didn’t We Already Beat Them Once?” State)
- The Notre Dame/Southern Cal and Florida/Arkansas winners finishing with one loss and getting zero cracks at the title while Michigan gets two – maybe we can call this the Tostito’s You Gotta Be Feckin’ Kidding Me Bowl
- Then, the cherry on top of the sundae – Michigan wins the rematch. Wins it close – OT would be a wet dream here.
So the team that shouldn’t have been there in the first place wins the Mythical National Title while a team that blasted through the SEC with only one stumble, hypothetically, gets a shot at diddley.
Please, football gods, let this happen.
