Monson: What a joke the selection of four playoff teams is bound to be

< Previous Page

No. 1: Are you crazy? Everybody’s forgotten about the ACC. My daughter’s powder-puff squad could go unbeaten in that league. The ACC is, like, 2-20 in BCS games over the past decade and a half. I say, give Arkansas another look.

No. 9: The Longhorns lost only once.

Committee member No. 11: How about Boise State? Haven’t they won every game they’ve played since 2003?

No. 4: Who invited Bob Kustra to this meeting? Security! Have this man removed.

No. 1: It’s still a market-driven thing.

Committee member No. 12: What about the Irish? They went 10-2, had a tough schedule, and draw huge interest and big money whenever they play in big games on national television.

Committee member No. 13: Speaking of independents, BYU’s 12-0. Should we invite them?

The entire room: (Silence, and then laughter.)

No. 2: This is impossible. We can’t fairly pick four teams.

No. 5: We’re supposed to be fair?

No. 8: It works in basketball.

No. 6: That’s because they invite … what, 175 teams?

No. 1: I’m telling you, fellas, the answer is right here where it’s always been, in the SEC. Alabama, LSU, Florida, Arkansas.

No. 2: Let’s do it.

No. 4: You got any more of those Groucho glasses?
