College Football Playoff vs Championship Game

There have been some fans complaining about the rematch aspect of this year's National Championship game.  I wonder if the fans whining that there should be a playoff instead of the BCS Championship game realize the following:

If you used the BCS Standings for a 16 team playoff, and used the reverse seeding method per the basketball tournament, you would have have TWO replays out of the eight first round games: LSU-Georgia and Ok St-Oklahoma. Why replay THOSE two blowouts? ROFLMAO

Assuming all the higher seeds win, in the second round you would have one replay out of four games: Oregon-Stanford. Why replay THAT blowout? LOL

Then, again assuming wins by the top seeds, you would STILL have LSU-Bama in the final. Since that game went into overtime in regulation, that is the only one of the four replays that seems a valid reason for a rematch.

More than 25% of the games in this hypothetical tourny would be rematches. I'll bet this would not be an unusual rate of rematches in ANY year of college football.

The best two teams played their way to the BCS title game. There is no possibility of a "split championship". The winner is the champ. That's why they are playing a CHAMPIONSHIP GAME. ROFLMAO Sour grapes, I believe that most people understand that.
