"And this led to a real problem. There have been plenty of bad Super Bowls and World Series and Final Fours — but nobody ever watches those and thinks, ‘Why did they have this game?" We KNOW exactly why those games happen — this team beat that team, and that team beat the other team, and that’s why it happened. Matchups happen organically.
The BCS Championship, though, doesn’t have that kind of order. Alabama and LSU played each other because, well, a few people kind of thought that maybe they were the two best teams. That doesn’t hold up too well under the microscope."
