I read a couple of tweets earlier today that got me thinking, as fans of Ohio State football, do we really want a playoff? Sure, it is the fair way to determine a championship, but it also means more games against elite teams. If OSU goes 13-0, they are pretty much guarunteed a spot in the MNC game under the current system, with the 14th win earning the title. Under a four-team playoff, it may be possible to go 12-1 and still get in, but 13-0 would probably still be necessary in many cases, with 2 more games required to win. Urban was quoted earlier this week as saying he is not in favor of a playoff because when you get to the 14th game of the season there is nothing left in the tanks. If we were fans of say Boise, a playoff would be a godsend, but as fans of a blueblood program, do we really want a system which requires more games in order to climb the mountain?
