DISCLAIMER: This is simply, and solely, my opinion. I have a right to it. Just so long as I don't put "FAIR AND BALANCED" as the subtitle.
Does Boise State have a chance at getting into the BCS Championship game?
Well, right now, my reaction is: WHO CARES? Do it anyway and see what happens. Most fans think that the BCS is probably one of the most (if not THE most) screwed up entities in all of sports. For once, prove us wrong and let the little guy in.
The only people that may disagree with that? Well, that would be the sponsors and people making money off of these kids' heart and soul efforts put in week in and week out. Doing this would send a message that the BCS is willing to give every team a fair chance. It's laughable, I know. As a Notre Dame Fan, I know all about the bias, and honestly don't appreciate it either.
Look at it this way...
By getting BSU in the Nation Championship game, the BCS stands to gain more attendees and more viewers simply because of the fact that people would tune in to see one of the following happen:
1) BSU Wins and knocks the entire conference system on its head! The root of the problem is actually the separation of conferences and people NOT scheduling tougher games outside their conference. Rather, these teams choose to schedule FCS schools.
2) BSU loses "like we knew they would." Humans LOVE to see people in high places fail.
BCS Argument: Boise State's fan base is small!
Response: This doesn't matter. Like I said, people will tune in to see one of the above things happen. If I had the time...I would try my best to even GO to the game. Others that have the means, WILL try to go to the game, just to see what happens.
To anyone that is part of the BCS that would NOT want BSU in the NC game: No matter who you put them up against, especially an SEC team, it would most likely make headlines around the globe...before and after. Leading up, every other bowl would pale in comparison, period. Even the SEC Championship game wouldn't be the most important game of this season, as it rightly is most of the time.
This could literally be the BCS story of BIBLICAL PROPORTIONS.
After all, who never heard the story of David and Goliath?
And, finally, isn't it time to get all this nonsense over with already?
