My friend Darius Fisher mentioned that he has heard, since the beginning of the college football season there has been great amounts of speculation regarding the new playoff structure that the NCAA has adopted, which is more like the National Football League then the traditional bowl games that were selected by a committee in the past. This year proved to be a massive success, much further than anyone could have expected. Two amazing things happened that really reinforced that the correct decision was made to make the change. First and foremost, over 28 million people tuned in to watch the first two games of the playoffs, setting a cable television record. Secondly, the Ohio State Buckeyes pulled off an incredible feat and knocked off the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Oregon Ducks in successive games. They were drastic underdogs in both match ups and proved that a team that is ranked out of the top two should get a chance to prove their dominance at the end of the season. If it were a different year, either Oregon or Alabama would own this year’s title, but thanks to the much more fair change that was made, the national championship trophy is headed back to the state of Ohio. The National Championship game also set a new cable television record, making the entire thing a ridiculous success. At the end of the day, the Ohio State Buckeyes have become the winners of the first ever college football playoffs.
