There is always going to be a difference of opinion if you only have 4 teams in the championship. If you pick 8 then you are going to have a few in there as cannon fodder. So what is the point? There are some that say you might as well call it a day and crown Alabama. Alabama clearly earned the title by rankings, record, comparables and performance. But Penn State lost two games and one game badly to Michigan. They eliminated themselves. Penn State is probably better off going to the Rose Bowl than participating in the championships anyway. The Rose Bowl in my mind is the premier bowl game in the nation.
