Rice: Oh, sure, like every fan I've thought that from time to time. Now I guess it will come around that I'll have to make those decisions. But I just want to say something: The system's done a pretty good job over the years. I have a lot of admiration for those teams that have been crowned [BCS] champions. They've been deserving. I think the new playoff system adds a new and important element to that, and I'm looking forward to being part of that.
