Having TCU play Boise State in the Fiesta Bowl strikes me as a cop-out. The world deserves an opportunity to put to the test the issue of whether these unbeaten teams from the unprestigious conferences are or are not in fact better than squads like Florida and Cincinnati.
It’s fine if you want to dismiss one of these teams based on their relatively weak schedules, but then you’ve got to let them have the chance to play a tougher schedule. Barack Obama said a year ago that he wanted to see a college football playoff and he was right! I think the White House needs to get back involved in this issue.
