Hey, TCU, Cincinnati, Boise State......Your School is Getting the BCS Shaft!

You are the head football coach at TCU (Cincinnati or Boise State). Here is what you have to tell your team the first day of summer camp, “OK fellas, our system for success is tried, tested, and true.  You’re going to work harder than you’ve ever worked before.  And if each of you fully commit to this process, really believe in this system, then together we will be a great team and maybe win a sub-major bowl championship or if we're lucky a minor BCS Bowl  because we don't play in the "Big Boys" conferences!" 

Then we’ll have the freedom to go out and compete our butts off and win our conference championship.  Oh yeah, by the way, after you’ve paid the price, invested time and energy to accomplish perfection on the field, we still won’t have a shot to win the "national championship.” 

  Can’t you just see it now? A hand slips up from the back of the room, “Coach!  Coach! Is this like T-ball when we all got a participation ribbon at the end of the year, you know, just for  showing up?”

Are you freaking kidding me?  This is major college competition, not pee-wees!  

The NCAA Division 1 college football post season is an ongoing bad joke. But the joke is on us; on the fans that support this charade.  Every other professional, college, and high school team in the country has a system to test their accomplishments.

Year after year all the discussion—by fans, players, and coaches—is on how unfair and discriminatory the BCS system is, how much we need a playoff system. But it falls on deaf ears.

Every major college sport has what they call ‘the playoffs,’ all but NCAA Division 1 Football. If, however, you are one of the BCS conference presidents, then the current system is really quite appealing because it’s called the “Let’s-manipulate-and-rip-off- the-public-for-our-own-benefit bowl system.” It’s no wonder they like it just the way it is.

We’re all led to believe there is nothing we can do. And if just you or I acted alone, that would be true. It’s hard to go into battle all alone against the big machines churning out the almighty dollar!

But we are not alone! Over 70% of college football fans want a playoff!.

The college football fans around the nation only need to get together and unite. Then we can do more than just hope for change. Through solidarity, this FanRevolt will get the attention of those who have been yanking our chains and pulling our purse strings.

Two hundred twenty five years ago King George didn’t much listen to the cry of the people and as Americans we had our first “Tea Party."  Well, the current BCS conference presidents are doing the same thing, so let’s make them regret their arrogance by throwing our own “TEE” party. T-Shits that is!  

Fans with a united front can force change! Let’s make ourselves visible by together wearing our FanRevolt ‘Green Out’ gear. Let’s show our unity, express our intentions, and demand their attention. And if they refuse to listen, we’ll keep our mouths open and our wallets closed.

 Is your school getting the shaft?

Every TCU, Cincinnati and Boise State fan should be livid now. These schools have a shot at a perfect season but no chance at a national championship! It’s so unbelievably unfair, it’s criminal.

College football’s BCS system goes against the moral fiber of every red-blooded American football fan. How can we not give an undefeated team an opportunity to test their accomplishment? We’ve got to them a chance.    

Is your school is getting hosed? Join and take up the march to put a stop to this madness. Get together with other fans, spread the news, get the GEAR and wear it to every bowl game. Spread the word through bloggers, social networks, and sports talk radio. Get your Green Out shirts now! You can be the catalyst to putting the BCS to bed and waking up to a legitimate 16-team playoff.

Soon we’ll be able to rest in our easy chairs and proudly watch the GridIron Gauntlet (starting as soon as we force them to change it).  Let your school booster know about this movement in time for your BCS Bowl; get yourself a Green Out shirt, sell them to students and together we’ll make a stand!  

Don't just sit there and read these posts!  Do something about it and Dump the BCS NOW by protesting at your BCS Bowl Game!

 Proceeds from the sale of the gear will go to fund this movement and make the NCAA dump the BCS!

This is your website, this is your cause!  

If you’re a fan or part of the TCU, Cincinnati or Boise State alumni, get involved! You should be on the front line! With just a little effort, the hard work of these great teams will not be in vain. Change can happen!  You need to believe in Dumping the BCS as much as you believe your team got screwed by not being in the big game.
