If college football’s postseason were still under the thumb of the late, not-at-all-lamented BCS, America would have spent Thursday afternoon watching Ohio State and Oregon in what amounted to a trumped-up consolation game in the Rose Bowl, while looking forward to a winner-take-all, no-questions-asked collision between Alabama and Florida State for the national title.
