Within the realm of contemporary sports, there may be no more controversial entity than that of the BCS.
Rather than providing for a playoff system that is designed to determine the true greatest team in Division 1-A college football, the BCS rates the success of its constituent teams by ranking them in a manner that often times has less to do with football and more to do about business and politics.
Under this system, the eventual champion is not crowned for having the best record, or for making it through a rigorous playoff stretch, but rather the supposed champion is merely the winner of the two "top-ranked" teams in the country playing each other.
However, I and many others do not consider this system to be fair. Therefore, I will now proceed to list the five teams that I consider to be the best in the country, starting with No. 5.
