Actually, a perfect season is neither sufficient for a national championship (which I think you said) nor is it necessary. Most recently, I believe, Florida in 1996 was the national champion with a 12-1 record. Which makes polls/BCS system even more weighty. I dunno, just lends more credence to a playoff system, which you touch on.
Buckeyes lost. Sad. It was inevitable though. They’re really not a great team. Good team, not great.
I’ll write about Promise Keepers tomorrow I guess, maybe. Not that people are clamoring to hear about it.
