Lose the game, win a title? Maybe for LSU
Question of the Day
That said, a four-team playoff, the so-called plus-one model, will at least be considered when BCS officials start looking toward the future of the system.
Meanwhile, the coaches in this year’s BCS title see no ambiguity. It’ll be winner take all Monday night.
“The opportunity to go play for the national championship is a completely different scenario” than a regular-season game, LSU coach Les Miles said after the game was set. “It’s the same opponent. But it will be played with the title at stake.”
And, of course, Alabama coach Nick Saban dismissed the topic, pointing out several times that when the New York Giants lost to the Patriots during the 2007 season, then beat the New England in the Super Bowl, there was no question who was the champion.
“He’s right,” wrote Doug Lesmerises of The Plain Dealer in Cleveland. “But guess what the Super Bowl comes and the end of? A PLAYOFF. As long as college football has no playoff, that comparison is apples and oranges.”
