I'm sure I'm not the only person some what annoyed with this process. It seems like back in the day everyone knew where you were going leading into the last game of the year. Indiana had punched their ticket to the Freedom Bowl in 1989 IF they handled business in the Bucket. There was no 7-8 day delay in the process. These conference championship games delay the overall picking process and it stinks for people thinking about lining up arrangements. There was a lot to be said for the finality of the old method.
