I can't help but be a bit saddened as I sit here and watch the "so-called" BCS National Championship game.
But each and every year at this time I am saddened a bit, all because we don't have a playoff system in big-time college football.
I know, it's an old argument -- the same one we have every year at this time -- but I can't help it. The fans and the players deserve so much more.
In fact, I can think of a bunch of young men that play football in Fort Worth that deserve a chance to play for a national championship, just like the players at Auburn and Oregon.
I've heard the argument: Auburn and Oregon both went undefeated in big-time conferences, and if TCU played in either one, there is no way they would have finished the season without a blemish.
To all of you who make that argument, tell me one thing: How do you know? Who is to say the Frogs don't roll through both the SEC and Pac 10 winners?
Look, maybe Auburn beats TCU 8 of 10 times, but what if one of the two Frog wins comes on a cool night in January as they play for a national title? The fact is we will never know, which is just not right for anyone who loves the game.
So TCU will end up as the No. 2 team in the nation, a great season by anyone's estimation, but the fact of the matter is, they deserved better. They deserved an opportunity!
