We're not trying to throw Gatorade on the whole thing, but the debate rages on: Did the BCS get it right this time?
Well, if the only thing you’re worried about is that mythical No. 1-ranked teams plays the mythical No. 2, then you should be happy!
Mythical No. 1 Alabama is playing mythical No. 2 Texas, which wouldn't be mythical No. 2 if Nebraska did not kick that ball out of bounds after their late score.
Which leaves us to wonder what the three other undefeated teams are thinking? What they were thinking is, had Nebraska had any offense they might be in the game. So, the truth is, Nebraska may have done more to determine the final outcome of the national championship game than Texas or Alabama.
Confusing? You bet!
Here is what we are certain about. Cincinnati, TCU and Boise State are not waiting for newly appointed BCS Executive Director Bill Hancock to congratulate them on a fine season (click on Dan Patrick interview of Bill Hancock for what he would say to the undefeated teams who didn't make the BCS Championship).
The BCS didn’t get it right.
In fact, if we didn’t know better we would have to say the bowl matchups were rigged to keep TCU and Boise State from pulling a Boise State over Oklahoma kind of outcome. That way we have less undefeated teams and less controversy. Smart...very smart! Not really because the new cop in town FanRevolt will be there to blow the whistle until they dump the BCS!
So the old saying from the BCS bosses seems to accept this system because it is the best we can do, while still lining our pockets full of the fan's hard earned cash! Uh, no its not!
A playoff would produce a champion and be right in line with every other major sport in this country and allow athletes to do what they want to do and that is compete fair and square.
That’s why we have rules and the referees to enforce the rules. Period!
That's why we have championships decided on the field. Period!
If we are a coach, player or fan of TCU and Boise state or Cincinnati we're happy about the payoff but fundamentally disappointed in the fact we don’t get the opportunity to play it off and become a true national champion.
It reminds us of a team in a very similar situation last year that went undefeated and came in second in the final BCS poll to a one loss Florida team. Can you guess who it was? You see, an undefeated second place team loses out to a one loss first place team and we can't even remember.
