BCS Blows it again

Posted on: December 10, 2011 12:44 am
The BCS had the opportunity to host a real national championship game this year, but they blew it.  By every measuring stick out there, LSU certainly deserves to be in the National Championship game.  They are the only undefeated team, and they won their conference. 

The question is:  which team, if they beat LSU, could deserve to be national champion?  There are 5 1-loss teams, all of which if they beat LSU could boast of a 1-loss season, same as LSU.  These are Oklahoma State, Stanford, Alabama, Boise State and Houston.  Of all these, only one is a conference champion:  Oklahoma State.  For all the rest, how can you be #2 in your conference and #1 in the nation?  So Oklahoma State/LSU is the only match up that can produce a national champion regardless of which team wins.

BCS Blows it again

The BCS wasn't designed to produce a national championship, or even reward great seasons. It was designed to protect the bowls from competition, and so far it's done that pretty well.

The tide may be turning, so there may be a playoff in the future. Even if the first version only has four teams, it's better than what we have right now.
