We bet you slept better last night than you have in months, huh? We ask, because we assume that most of you tried to watch the Alabama/LSU National Championship Game snoozefest and fell into a coma. It was basically the equivalent of chasing a handful of Ambien with a tall glass of NyQuil.
Well, we've got some good news for you. That (probably) won't happen again next year. According to a high-ranking BCS official, there will be some sort of playoff system installed as part of the next BCS contract. "It gets done," he told the Sporting News last night.
Reportedly, the BCS committee is meeting as we speak to try and iron out some the details of exactly what that playoff system will look like. They'll also meet in February, April, and June as well to hash things out and give people what they want: A true national championship game that comes at the end of a series of playoff games. Granted, that won't prevent a game like last night's contest from happening—for our money, 'Bama and LSU were the two best teams in the nations and deserved to be in the title game—but at least it'll give teams like Oklahoma State, Stanford, Oregon, and, hell, even Boise State a chance to compete. It'll also eliminate the 44-day (!) gap between the end of the regular season and the championship.
Okay, that's all we've got for ya. Feel free to jump back into bed and resume your quality sleep now. And if you need any help, just think about LSU's Jordan Jefferson trying to throw a pass last night and...Zzzzzzz. Yeah, that's what we thought.
