God, their selection criteria is going to be truly *AWFUL*
quick, you tell me which team is more deserving of a top 4 place?
A) Team undefeated with #30 SOS and tied for conf title because they don't play CG
B) Team undefeated with #35 SOS but won conf with CG (played 1 more gm)
C) Team with 1 loss that won conf but had #10 SOS
D) Team with 1 loss that didn't win conf but had #1 SOS
This 4-team playoff is a joke. A sick, twisted joke where schools are trying to eek out nothing more than one more bowl revenue. This isn't a competitive issue at all because no sane person would claim this playoff model is good they've just shifted the beauty contest from a top 2 selection to top 4 and even worse, it sounds like they are getting rid of the semi-objective BCS and replacing with with a very small selection committee picking the teams. Smaller the selection process goes and fewer rules for selection the more bias it becomes.
