The criteria is wayyy to vague to pick the best...so if Bama and Ohio State


can push up ratings, they have proven they are in. Ohio State got in last year, so Bama gets in this year. The committee was influenced by the pressure from ESPN to get the ratings up. ESPN spent the whole weekend pushing Bama no matter what and the committee fell to the pressure.

Bottom line is the College Football game can start losing fans like the NFL has, if they don't tighten up how the criteria are used to pick the best 4. ESPN could not be happier about how this turned out for ratings...they got just what they lobbied for both years.
