TCU has the biggest beef of all the undefeated schools this year.  Although Boise State beat Oregon and has been the glamorous non-BCS school for the past couple of years, TCU has earned a bigger challenge.

I don't know if playoff is the right word, but something needs to be done to let some of the smaller schools have a chance at eternal glory.  Let the best teams for this season, not the best of the decade, play for the championship.

TCU has demolished opponents by more than 28 points per game. If that does not impress you, how about a winning margin of more than 16 per game over bowl teams this season.  They deserve a chance to play for it all, just as much or more than Alabama and Texas.

Everybody went crazy with Alabama's crushing of Florida in the SEC championship game and how Mark Ingram sliced through the Florida defense.  Granted, Alabama's offense surprised me, but honestly I think Florida is the fourth or fifth best team in the country this year.

Texas has also received special attention after being left out of the national championship game last year.  They struggled late in the season against six-loss Texas A&M and four-loss Nebraska.  If it was not for a fortunate clock situation, they would not be in the National Championship game.

I know any BCS game brings in millions to the University, but a trip to the Fiesta Bowl and playing a clearly inferior Boise State team, seems to me like more of slight than recognition of a perfect season.
