Might watch to see Saban look sad if Bama loses, but not very interested to be honest.

No! But it is good for the culmination of CR.
Poor viewership for this game will hasten the end of realignment.

I'd watch if it was from an 8 team playoff but have no interest with Bama getting the nod over OSU.

I'll watch when they have an actual playoff. I did watch the UCF/Auburn game.

I understand. Bama demonstrated clearly that they weren't among the best four teams last night.

Has it been bad for the NBA having Cavs vs Warriors three years in a row?

Fans like to watch good teams. Alabama and Georgia have proven to be good teams, i think ratings will be fine. We'll see.

Alabama beating Clemson and Georgia beating Oklahoma were rigged?

The best two teams all season, playing for the national championship. System worked out again.

Not really sure why everyone is being such a hater. These two teams fairly went through a playoff and won. It's not Georgia or Alabama's fault that they are better than all the other teams.

Well maybe it is.....

I think what the enemy of man (Kipling's understanding of Shere Kahn) is trying to say, is that it is rigged for corporate America's agenda. Disney via ESPN gets to select 4 schools every year (if you want to screw somebody just get a committee of personalities called by the media as above reproach to do it) that hype their ratings. The G5 are mostly excluded because of lack of following. With 4 great national draws and an occasional change of face to make it seem fair and give it more color the ratings roll in and so do the advertising dollars.

It's a lot like Corporate America's control of Congress and the White House. Make it a two horse race (Dems vs Reps) throw the stupid masses the irrelevant bone of the day (gender issues, abortion, gun rights, pro flag anti flag, etc,) to stir them up and make them vote, and then give equal amounts to both candidates and voila, you control the means of power because Congress and the President appoint the Supreme Court.

And nobody in the country protests the real villain, corporate interest. Why? Now that private business is all but dead here due to corporate perks and tax breaks, the public can't bite the hand that feeds them because most of the public either works for government which the corporations control, or they work for the corporations, or their kids do.

So it will be Alabama/Georgia/Florida/Auburn/LSU, Ohio State/Michigan, Florida State/Clemson, Texas/Oklahoma, or USC/Washington pretty much every year with some minor variations. Just like the NCAA tournament uses seeding to justify giving the top basketball draws the easiest path to the Sweet 16. Only there everybody watches the first two rounds to see if one of the Blue Bloods gets knocked off. But that tournament covers three weeks so an upset or two doesn't really affect the Sweet 16 which guarantees pretty much 3 national draws in the final four every year.

Football is too compact to risk upsets so they set it up this way and let the venerated names of the world put their stamp on it.

My issue with the G5 posters here is that most of them are too blind with anger and envy to see that the P5 has nothing to do with this. Like them we take their cash to do what they say. So save your piss and vinegar for the Mouse and leave us out of it. We are just better paid hired hands than you are, but we are still hired hands on Mickey's Plantation.

There was a Super Bowl several years ago between the Bears and Colts. Chicago and Indianapolis are closer than Tuscaloosa and Athens. The Colts-Bears Super Bowl had more TV viewers than any previous Super Bowl. 93 million TV viewers is a lot more than "almost no one".

This is interesting. Mets-Yankees pre-dated interleague play, so, it was very rare to see the series happen. Bears and Colts had Peyton Manning finally having his shot. I do think that was enough of a national story for that pairing. That, and people totally bought into the old Rust Belt feel to the pairing. And Prince as a halftime performance had its buzz.

I'm sour grapes on this one, and I won't be watching. I only tuned in at the end regulation for OU-UGA to see how the game was lining up to its designated run-time (which, it didn't, as Bama-Clemson was bumped an additional ten minutes even before regulation's end, finalizing the need for OT). UCF will have defeated a team that beat both participants. Bama didn't win jack in the SEC, whereas Wisconsin lost its way out via an extra game Bama never had to play. And, really, we should have had this game in the regular season...that it didn't happen shows the current state of FBS play...mega-conferences and a faulty championship system (not just a small number of teams eligible for the title, but not seeing the **** game as the semi-final). No, I will not be feeding the beast on this one. It's not fun, interesting, or genuine to me.
