The Miami Era in a Plus-One Past

Fun article from Jason Kirk at the Mothership.

This is a terrible time to start arguing for a plus-one format. After Tuesday's playoff meeting between conferences and school presidents, we might never use the term again. College football's getting a four-team playoff, no matter how big a show Nebraska's chancellor makes of fearing the future. The playoffs will be distinct from the bowls, and won't simply be an extra game bolted on the end.

But have we articulated to ourselves just what would be so unacceptable about a plus-one?
