SI: The Fairness Of Playoffs

Just saw this piece on SI.com from Joe Posnanski, whom I had never heard of a year before but who has quickly become one of my favorite sports writers, if not the favorite. I thought this was interesting and relevant for us, given our discussions on the merits of a college football season and the fairness, or lack thereof, in allowing a team which demonstrated mediocrity over the course of a regular season to win a championship via a well-timed playoff hot streak. I know Brooklyn makes this argument frequently, and it's one with which I have become increasingly sympathetic.
