Ditto. I also can't look at profiles anymore. Anyone else have that issue?

FINALLY ABOVE the gnat line
Voting is apparently a no-go anymore. ROLL TIDE ROLL!! and they did second half. Glad they switched the QB.

And what about Ohio State. Big 10 conference champs, but locked out of the playoff. Alabama beat a team in their conference - but didn't win their conference. I'm not saying they aren't one of the best teams in the country, but we'll never know if Ohio State could have beaten them all. By the way, the Big 10 went 7-1 in bowl games (only Michigan lost a tight game).

The "playoffs" are definitely flawed. It really isn't much better than the old BCS system of picking two teams. Too many legitimate contenders, especially this year, are left out. I'd personally be happy with 8 teams, but would really like to see a 12 team playoff, but I don't see either of those happening any time soon.

OK
UCF beat Auburn.....who beat both participants in the Natl. Championship game. UCF wasn't and never will be allowed to get in the playoff.....so what kinda system is this? UCF beat everybody on their schedule. Was their schedule as tough as a Big 5 member's schedule? No. That's why in my system, the Big 5 conference champs would all get in, and the group of 5 would get ONE team in, then you'd have 2 at-large bids.

As it currently stands, 60 some odd schools are basically 'disenfranchised'....they have ZERO shot at every even getting in the playoff, much less actually win a natl. championship.
