Here’s The Thing – The CFP: No Number Stops The Arguing

I’m Stephen Thomas with Here’s The Thing.


We’re back, ladies and breath mints. Well, actually we never left. We just weren’t together the past few days. I mean, I guess some of you could have left. I don’t know, I wasn’t with you. What were we talking about? Whatever it was, let’s discuss the College Football Playoff, and by “discuss” I of course mean “yell and shout and call each other names that would embarrass our mothers.”

See, Here’s The Thing; So it’s Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State and Washington. No more arguing, no more debating, it’s done … and if you believe the “no more arguing” part, I’d like to tell you about my latest can’t miss Multi-Level Marketing company, because you’ll believe anything! This year proves yet again that any system – ANY system – that involves voting will be stupid. Let me take it a step further: expanding to 8 teams (which I favor, by the way) will only INCREASE the “who should be in” arguing, not eliminate it like some are suggesting. There are several reasons: 1 – The difference between #4 and #5/6 is usually more defined than the difference between #8 and #9 or even #12-14; the top 4 teams are close to perfect in their record, but by the time you get to #8 you’re looking at teams with very flawed resumes, 3 or maybe even 4 losses. Look at this year, who’s #8? Wisconsin? USC? Colorado? Florida State? Oklahoma State? Louisville? Western Michigan? West Virginia? Stanford? Go ahead, tell who’s demonstrably #8 and #9 out of that group without arguing. I’ll wait… 2 – There are 64 teams in the NCAA Men’s Basketball tournament, and the March arguments are legendary, so there is NO number of teams that would eliminate the debates. 3 – College Football is big business. They’ll expand when and only when the financial numbers bear it out. 4 – The Illuminati want it this way, and much like The Saviors on Walking Dead, they get what they want. You can’t argue with any of my reasoning. No wait, you can – that’s the point, as long as there’s “voting” there will ALWAYS be arguing.

Look, I don’t know what the perfect system is, but any one that includes voting or “the eyeball test” will. Be. Flawed. Doesn’t matter this year anyway, nobody’s beating ‘Bama. Go ahead: argue with me.
