The #4 slot was always going to be like this. They were smart to do it this way too IMO. One of the big successes of the BCS was generating interest in CFB. They did that thru constant structural controversy. The playoff will be no diffent and it will keep the conversation going all year long. Eight will happen, but they will milk this cow on all four for a Long time before that happens
Treat stressful situations like a puupy would. If you can't hump it or chew on it, than lift your leg to it and walk away
Lets ask Art Briles in 2008 if H2H should matter in Final rankings.
Let's ask Texas if head to head matters in 2008, when the team that beat them only had 1 loss as well.
That was a bit more complicated than this, since 2008 was a 3-way tie where each of the teams beat each other. People wanted to arbitrarily throw out the third team to give UT the advantage, but there's no way the rules allow you to ignore a game like that. At that pont, the best ranked team has to go.
