As I was browsing ajc.com out of boredom, an article sparked my interest and it was about a proposed D-I college football playoff system from a member of the mountain west. It appears that he is going to be yet another name thrown in the proposed pile and it will probably get recognized and then shot down by the powers that be.
However, it recently occurred to me that we (the fans, coaches and players) are to blame for allowing the BCS to go this far. It is a non-arguable fact that the BCS and a complete and utter failure at allowing the best two teams battle it out for the National championship.
I look back on american history, mainly the (civil rights movement), and look at all the flaws that this great country has had. All of these problems have been either settled or fixed (for lack of better words) because a group of people decided to take matter into their own hands and show that they are in power.
Listen people, I love college football with a passion, and I would hate to go a season with out it; however, we are allowing a group of dictators dictate who plays for the national championship every year. We want a true champion and the only way we are going to this is if we hit the heart that keeps the BCS beating.
College football makes tons of money from the BCS and as bad as it would hurt I believe we should boycott D-I football. Flock to see the DI-AA and D-II teams. Show them our power in numbers. I highly doubt that the schools would join in on this but you never know.
I guess the question would all come down the their morals. Do they want to do the right thing or do they just want to make money. I believe we can already answer that when it comes to the majority of college coaches.
Look to professional sports for an example. The players are always fighting and scrapping for more money and such through collective bargaining. They threaten to strike if they don't get what they want so lets do the same and show the DICtators who run college football who really has the power.
I doubt very seriously anyone would follow through with this, but it appears to be the only way to stick to the man.
