How a four-team playoff would have changed things:
Plenty. No. 1 LSU vs. No. 4 Stanford and No. 2 Alabama vs. No. 3 Oklahoma State would have added some texture, clarity, fairness and, well, offense to the proceedings.
Step back, Slive. Back off, Saban. Move away, Miles. College football would have gotten even, broken the SEC death grip.
"We'd have thrown it 50 times," Mike Gundy told USA Today
. "You like to think Brandon Weeden
and Justin Blackmon
could have put together some touchdowns. Get the ball thrown down the field and open some things up. Try to make it exciting, and see what happens."
