I'm watching the GMAC bowl because, hey, why not, and the commentators have been discussing some of the wackiness of this college football season, such as the fact that in the last nine weeks of the regular season, seven teams ranked #2 lost, and that we have, for the first time since the BCS started, a team with two losses in the championship game. They think this means we need a play-off system.

I can see three, four, or five undefeated teams in a season causing one to call for a play-off system. But when every team in the country has lost once, and many of the good ones have lost multiple times, how does that steer you toward a system based on the idea that a single loss should preclude you from the championship? Lots of upsets == the better team always wins?
Naturally, if there was any actual reasoning behind their opinion, they didn't bother to provide it.
Mind you, if they had said that the championship game should be called off this season because no team deserves the championship, they would have had a point.
