The common shortsighted perception is that we should want Auburn to get into the BCS title game so, if we win out, we'll slip into their Sugar Bowl spot. If you care about LSU getting maximum national title shots in future years, you'll sacrifice a backed-in-to Sugar Bowl appearance this year for the worst possible BCS championship game match-up. One that the public doesn't respect, doesn't believe represents the 2 best teams and doesn't draw ratings. The only way a groundswell will start to institute a playoff system is if the major conferences and TV networks insist on it. The only way that will happen is if the deserving big boy schools start getting left out of the BCS champ game and everyone is being sold that TCU-Oregon or Oregon-Boise or Boise-TCU is supposed to crown a the champion. The ratings would be down significantly and the major story line would not be "Oregon is the best!", "TCU is the best team!", it would be "Too bad no playoff, the SEC champ likely would've annihilated either one of these teams" and "Ratings way down in BCS champ game". TV dollars drive this boat. It won't take much convincing from the networks to change the system if the ratings suck. If such a scenario happened a couple of times, a playoff system in major college football (alleged by those with a vested interest in the status quo to be an impossibility) would become a certainty. Then LSU would truly be a national championship contender every season, regardless of our murderous SEC schedule, and life would be great. And if you don't like this notion because you are against an 8 or 4 team playoff in college football, you must also agree with a one or two loss LSU team being behind the weakest conferences unbeaten teams in the BCS standings. I can't imagine that you would. PS Also, pull against Auburn because they are trashy hillbillies, thugs, and mercenaries with no regard for the thin facade of integrity in THIS THING OF OURS (College Football) and destined for years of NCAA sanctions.
