Did they get 1 and 2 right? probably so, but all it does is prove that the BCS is a double standard. In 07, Ohio State beat Michigan, but Michigan was still ranked #2 and they were given a rematch b/c "They had their shot" so I'm not sure why its any different this year.
If there was some sort of playoff that allowed bama to work their way back to LSU, then I would be fine with it, but again, they had their chance, at home, and lost. In previous years, when BCS defenders were saying, "The regular season is a playoff", there is no way this would have happened, but suddenly its OK. Personally I say let Stanford or Okie light have a shot at them.
If people get upset b/c 1 and 2 are playing, then just tell them the same crap people have been using to defend the BCS for years. Every year, we get to this point in the season and its the same thing, a wonderful college season that is just sullied by an extremely flawed BCS system. I don't really want to get started about the coaches poll or the fact that a championship game is played a month after the regular season ends.
It's a fact that 70 percent of the people who purchase heavier tackle do so with the categorical I just lost a huge snook! Einstein Hairdo.The other 30 percent have either Tarpon Fever or are sporting a hand cramped into a claw from a deepwater grouper.
