I'm all for the positives of being part of the P5 resources...

But I don't see any positive in getting beat 63-0 by Alabama. In that scenario, it would just shine the light on the fact that we wouldn't deserve to be in a playoff. There would be a lot of teams that would not lose to Alabama by 63 points that would be more deserving. If we made the playoff every year and got beat in the first game every year, what have we accomplished in terms of playing for a national championship?

Like I said, I want the playoff to expand. I'm just pointing out that if that happens, we will still be complaining about what is not fair. When our 2nd best team with an 11-1 record gets left out because they didn't get an at-large invite, etc... As far as a true national champion goes, you know football very well. You know in your heart that Alabama was the best team in football this year even if you won't admit it. :-)
