Default A Fitting End To This BCS

If everything goes according to plan, Alabama, Oregon, FSU and OSU will all be undefeated going into bowl season. According to the experts, it will be Alabama and Oregon playing for the title with the other two on the outside looking in. What a perfect way to end a pathetically conceived, poorly designed system to determine the national champs. However, I can't think of two better conferences to get the shaft one last time before going into the new format next year. It's the supreme indictment for both those conferences to fall short having played the perfect season. And I would be remiss if I didn't thank both John Swofford and Jim Delany.....you guys have been the greatest. We couldn't be where we are without you.

Tons of football to play, it could get worse or better but it will for sure not be pretty for the BCS, we should have had a playoff 10 years ago. Imagine the money the conferences have pissed away not having a playoff, bowing down to the NCAA and old school money for so long. An 8 team playoff could be bigger than the Super Bowl IMO and legitimize college football champions on the field! I see us winning the first one, similar to Omaha!

The BCS did a great job of pitting the number 1 and number 2 ranked teams against each other for the national title. That didn't happen before the BCS. I wish they had just used the BCS to select the 4 teams for a playoff instead of a selection committee.

People complain that the BCS isn't clear in selecting teams which is simply false. We could never find out how the selection committee comes to their decisions however.

Honestly, why don't they just make a 4 team playoff start this year with the BCS rankings deciding the teams. Play the games at the home fields of the two highest ranked teams. I'm sure Alabama and Oregon would have no issue selling those puppies out, split the gate, winners play in Pasadena and losers play in the Fiesta Bowl.

I agree. I have always thought it was our best shot of making it to the NCG. We are in the SEC, win it with no more than one loss and you are in that baby. Unless something extremely rare happens this year and we happen to make it, and I know we won't, it's going to be more difficult to get to the championship game with the play-offs.

But, that's the way it is and we just have to get better and stop losing these games during the reg season to lesser competition. Win the SEC and we'll be in the play-offs with a shot at the title. Of course, the first year we get in we'll have to get by Oregon in the first round...

Default Re: A Fitting End To This BCS

The BCS is crap for sure, but the "playoff" that will begin next year is almost as big of a joke. 4 teams, really? I will continue to beat this horse until it doesn't exist, but why can't we have the same system on this level as the FCS has? We would NOT have to get rid of all the bowls (which several need to be trashed anyway). We could just call the different venues the various bowls. Also, the companies that sponsor some of the bigger bowls (Chick-fil-a for example) could still sponsor matchups or even whole rounds. I could see a real playoff system actually bringing in a LOT more money than the current bowl system.

The four team playoff is a joke. It should start out with 8 teams, we all know it will be 8 in the next 4 years or so. Why the hell start with a 4 team playoff with so many teams in Div 1?

What next year's "playoff" does is no better than the BCS, because it makes all of the other postseason bowls irrelevant.

I disagree.
Not saying I wouldn't like it more because to me NCAA> NFL, but that wouldn't beat out the Super Bowl/nfl playoffs in terms of popularity (you gotta remember the Super Bowl is world wide)

The problem that a lot of you are passing over is the selection committee. people that have no business making decisions will be ( condolezza rice). It will be flawed heavily but it is what it is.

I agree...Maybe add a little more of a human element but keep the BCS. It's done a great job.

With the current BCS standings, wouldn't Alabama and FSU be playing for the championship if the season were to end today? I think FSU is projected to trade with Oregon again.

It'll be FSU today, but if Oregon beats Standford they'll be back on top.
