I don't have enough faith in OSU D and would rather see an OSU win in the Rose Bowl than a possible beat down by Alabama. Unfortunately this year we don't know which OSU team will show up. If OSU isn't playing for a National Title I would prefer to see them in a winnable bowl game. Washington is an easier match up than UGA. I would have been fine with UGA as the four seed over Oklahoma. The path to an expanded playoff would have been helped by that scenario.Why would you not want your team in the playoffs? In the current landscape of college football making the playoffs and losing is still a better selling point than winning a New Years 6 game.
I wish Georgia and OSU would play, have OSU run it up. Would just add fuel to fire for expansion. Maybe wishful thinking they would run it up but I think they can beat UGA. The offense is good enough to give them at least a punchers chance against any team.
