We've got Jim Delany up on the shorts today folks. Yesterday at the mothership I took a spin on Delany's new plan about not allowing non-division winners into the four-team playoff. The head man for the B1G has 2011 Alabama squarely in his sights and he is aiming at the SEC to make sure this never happens again. We get it Jim, you have a legitimate fear for what happens if the Southeastern Conference keeps having a couple of the best teams in the nation.
Delany talks resume and scheduling but never discusses the actual best teams. Nick Saban has a response to the commissioner's idea about champions playing and it is a simple one: "Hell No." People want to see the best teams and to ignore that would be ignoring the reason behind this playoff push. Evaluating teams is an active science, not a passive one. Active means film evaluation then tweaking and re-tweaking based upon on-field play. That does not mean looking at a resume and just picking who is the best off of a computer print out. Hopefully more people will realize this as we go forward.
