B/R: If you take a look at the BCS standings right now, what is your take on all of the changes at the top with the Top Three teams all being from the SEC setting up what looks like an all-SEC BCS Championship Game? Is it time for a change?
DF: Yeah, I think if you look at this year, it's time for a plus-one if not a playoff.
All of the top-caliber teams that lost last week—No. 2, No. 4 and No. 5 all going down—it's what we love about college football: it's unpredictable. For seven or eight weeks of the season there were six undefeated teams, and people were rolling their eyes thinking it was going to be so unfair that somebody was going to go undefeated and left out. It's amazing how college football is so exciting down the wire here with these big upsets.
B/R: What about an all-SEC BCS Championship Game?
DF: It's frustrating to me. I honestly don't want to see an LSU-Alabama rematch, but they both are deserving of being in the BCS Championship Game right now, especially with LSU staying undefeated.
Even if Arkansas knocks off LSU, what happens? Does Arkansas go to No. 1? Does LSU drop to No. 2 because they've beaten Alabama and we'll have an Arkansas-LSU rematch?
I just think you gotta win your conference in order to play for a National Championship. I would like to see that implemented at some point.
But right now, if Alabama and LSU win, they deserve to play each other for a National Championship.
