AU-24 2,774 Posted December 10, 2014 Share Posted December 10, 2014 Article basically gives Tubbs and Auburn (getting screwed in 2004) at least partial credit for a college football playoff! http://espn.go.com/college-football/story/_/id/12002638/an-oral-history-college-football-playoff Auburn had been shut out of the championship game despite its 12-0 record, an SEC title and three wins against top-10 opponents. USC and Oklahoma, which began the season ranked No. 1 and No. 2 in the polls, ran the table as well. Auburn opened the season outside the top 15 and could never enter the top two, sparking outrage from SEC circles and elsewhere. Tuberville knew the 2004 team would never be together like this again, so the Tigers coach ditched his typical postseason spiel. "Guys, here's the deal," he began. "You guys started something tonight that will change college football. It's going to take five, 10, 15, 20 years, but because of what this group did, went undefeated, it opened the eyes of people across the country. "How do you give a national championship to somebody when there's another team out there undefeated?" Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
