Default The BCS can't be gone soon enough for me.

While I'm not a fan of the "playoff" system scheduled to begin next year to determine the national champion, the BCS can't be gone soon enough. There are glaring flaws in the system in general which have been discussed before, but maybe none more obvious than the schools chosen for the BCS games that aren't the championship game.

Unless something unexpected happens, UCF and Clemson will both be playing in BCS games. It's also very possible Missouri will make it to the Sugar Bowl. Everyone knows USC beat all of those teams, yet USC won't be part of the BCS in its last year. In what world does it make sense not one or two, but THREE teams who were beaten by one team get rewarded more than the team that beat them?

Default Re: The BCS can't be gone soon enough for me.

I see your points and agree that it really sucks that 3 teams we beat could all be in BCS games while we get left out. BUT, those 3 teams to care of business in every game they were supposed to win. You can afford to lose one big game in the SEC and still be okay, but once you drop a game that you should win, it's tough to bounce back.

Default Re: The BCS can't be gone soon enough for me.

It is certainly flawed. If we had beaten UT we would be in the SECCG and possible NC talks etc,. But it is what it is. Just got to show up and beat whoever we get in our bowl. Recruiting for the next two years is solid, especially with this win over Clemson. I have said it once and I will say it again. We are building a powerhouse program here at Carolina. The schedule next year is rough but we will be one of the best in the nation with plenty of room to grow. Beating ATM in the season opener on national TV will get our hype machine rolling early and we just need to take care of business from there and we are in the first ever FBS playoffs. THAT is the New Carolina. Screw the BCS.

It's really that stupid 3 teams from the same conference rule that has screwed us. It's a joke that NIU or UCf will get in and we won't. Even dumber that a 10-2 Clemson team we beat gets in. If you are in the top 8 you should be guaranteed a spot.

Don't misunderstand me. It's not the idea ONE of those might make it (even CU), but the fact there's a real possibility all three will be in BCS bowls and we won't even though we have a really good record and beat all of them that really bothers me.

Default Re: The BCS can't be gone soon enough for me.

It doesn't seemed too flawed to me. It's a subjective system no matter what way you look at it, It has to be beause to many team with too many different schedules involved, and that is why people complain.

Yeah, but I'm not even unhappy with the way the championship teams are decided. Overall, that's the one thing the BCS has been good at doing, getting the two best teams in the title game, even if those teams are only the best by record. This year is definitely a case where the SEC has cannibalized itself.

Here is a list of schools whose only losses during the year came in conference play. Approximately 6 of these were title contenders at various times.

Alabama - 1 loss
Auburn - 1 loss
Missouri - 1 loss
South Carolina - 2 losses
LSU - 3 losses
Texas A&M - 4 losses
Vanderbilt - 4 losses
Mississippi - 5 losses

This, I agree with. That's why we need a REAL playoff system. We can still call the various venues the bowl games and even maintain the sponsorships. A real playoff system -- not the joke coming next year -- would make MORE money than the current bowl system.

Default Re: The BCS can't be gone soon enough for me.

I really hate their rule that no more than 2 teams from the same conference can go to BCS bowl games. If not for this rule there would probably be 3 or 4 SEC teams in BCS games every year. It really pissed me off a couple of years ago when because LSU and Bama were in the NCG, the Sugar bowl was Michigan vs. VT..

Every time I think about complaining about our ranking, I remember us losing to a 5-7 UT team. Not to mention that our schedule this year was not the toughest. We needed to take care of business this year and we didn't plain and simple.

BTW you can do the same thing with the Pac 12 and the Big 12 and the ACC

BCS is and always has been a joke and a flawed system. Never liked it since the day they announced it.

Glad it's gone. Good Riddance

Like it or not, the BCS has paid off big time for the SEC, ultimately bringing in a lot of money to our Ath. Dept.

I'm all for the play-off, although a four team playoff is only going to ruffle more feathers, unless you are one of the lucky four teams to get in. It's about time we do what needs to be done and start getting in the winners circle. Hopefully it will increase to an eight team play-off very soon.
