“The BCS is awesome because the regular season counts.” Or so say the BCS supporters, a.k.a. freaking idiots. If anyone feels that this is true, tell that to, well, ANY team not playing in the BCS Championship game.
Oh, also, btw, FOX, the provider of the BCS games, complete with commentators that don’t follow college football regularly since they don’t actually broadcast any CFB games, don’t know how many FBS schools there are. They were mentioning strength of schedule differences between Kansas and Missouri, and they said there were 119 teams. There were last year, but at last count, there were 120 this year. Thanks alot.
The thing I want to know is, why did it HAVE to be Ohio State? I’d pay to see an LSU vs. UGA Championship game. That’d be fun. Now, we’re just going to have to watch an OSU team that got embarrassed last year at the hands of Chris Leak… Chris Leak feel good about themselves for playing in another game that they have no business playing in. They’re turning into the Miami of the 2000’s.
In the 90’s, Miami would wade their way through the cupcake filled conferences as well as cupcake filled non-conference slates, scamming their way into the National Title Game year after year.
Am I saying that Ohio State somehow scammed their way in? Well, yes. But I am also saying that the system is stacked to allow weaker conferences (Big10, Big East) to have unfair advantages over schools in other conferences. Herbstreit said that everyone who talks about a playoff system is wasting their breath, that the BCS is going nowhere (doesn’t hurt to be an OSU alum at this point I guess), but if even ONE of the BCS conferences (read: SEC) were to pull out, the system would not hold any credibility whatsoever.
So let’s do it Slive. Grow some balls and stand up against Jim Delany, the devil incarnate. You are the commissioner of the most powerful conference in the country, if you go, everyone else will follow. Let the Big Ten hold out and crown themselves “BCS Champions” every year, because the SEC will lead the charge towards the ultimate college football spectacle EVAR.
