Personal conduct and availability to the media are not the same thing. I am talking about the players that don't care for the media and pay the price for itIn regards to MLB HOF admission, there are many people who believe that personal conduct is, or should be, part of the criteria. Others do not.
Humans cannot be removed from the process, whether we are talking MLB HOF or NCAA FB playoff selection/seeding or any other sports selection committee. Therefore, there will always be opportunities for someone to claim bias of some sort in one form or another, whether its actually present or not. It all depends on one's perspective I suspect. Anyways, I've not seen any negative feedback on the 4 teams selected this year, outside of the 1-2 slot. And while I personally would have picked OSU as #1 since they were there before this last weekend, and won, I can't fault the reasoning for making the switch.
So you don't like the process? Great, maybe start a thread and we can flesh it out. I don't think it can be changed in a way that pleases everyone. If they make a change of some sort that satisfies you, it will tick someone else off who was happy before the change, so things basically wouldn't have changed, big picture.
Yes they can. Conference champions go into a one game playoff where the conference seedings alternate every year on a schedule. You win your conference, you get a chance to play. You don't win your conference, sit down and be quite.
That is kind of what this thread is for.
