Another common argument I'm hearing about Utah is that they "should have been happy" with the bowl they got. They should be happy with a BCS bowl. This is akin to saying that Rosa Parks should have been happy to even be on the bus. She should have been happy to be "allowed" to walk to school or even go to school. What rubbish. Trying to gloss over manifest inequity with "you should be happy with what crumbs we gave you from the table" is conceitedness a outrance (thanks Mr. Buckley).
As I have said on many occassions, there are no reasonable arguments against a playoff. Every other college and professional sport does it, so can the FBS or whatever they call Division I these days.
