Joe Poz had an interesting post yesterday about the phenomenon of teams with a 1st-round bye losing half their opening playoff games since 2005. This randomness plays into why most of us hate the BCS even though in some ways a BCS-like method is "fairer" to teams based on their regular-season performance. Doug once found that the NFL's best team only won the Super Bowl about a quarter of the time, and Joe wonders what it means when we're basically OK with that.
