What I don't get is what did Texas do to move from #7 to #3? They beat the pants off of an OkSt team that lost to UCF?

There was no world where they would not have a SEC team in the playoff. Texas is in because they beat Alabama in Alabama.

Everybody has known for a long time now that game play and merit were secondary to the almighty dollar and the interests of putting on not even the best, but the most lucrative TV product possible.

What's different this time is that the veneer of legitimacy--the lip service to fairness and the sense of purity we knew was gone from CFB, but not so far we couldn't pretend--has been destroyed. Welcome to the WWE. Follow the script, sit down, and shut up.

For me, Oz just isn't as magical once you meet the wizard face-to-face.
