You may recall Obama stumping for an eight-team playoff during the presidential campaign, but visible in separate interviews on "Monday Night Football" and "60 Minutes." In the wake of the Florida Gators' 24-14 victory over the Oklahoma Sooners in the BCS title game last evening, he once again pleaded for change.
"Obama, asked what he thought about Florida's 24-14 victory Thursday night over Oklahoma in the BCS championship game, congratulated the Gators and said he'd sent a message to a friend whose son plays for the team.
At the same time, he said, "If I'm Utah, or if I'm USC or if I'm Texas, I might still have some quibbles."
Obama said, "That's why we need a playoff."
Personally, I choose to believe that the Gators' victory is convincing enough for them to be crowned without hesitation. But a certain team in Utah would probably disagree with that.
So, is Florida your national champion or are you with Obama on the need to get those playoffs a-rollin'?
