The BCS Is Good? What The Old School Format Would Not Give Us In 2010

Everyday we hear much of the same thing.

"College football needs a playoff system."

"The BCS simply doesn't work."

Well, if we look back to why the system was put into place in the first place, it was to make sure No. 1 played No. 2 for the national title.

Sure, there will always be controversy as to who the best teams are, and in 2010 it is looking as if we could have at least three, if not four unbeaten and deserving teams. So again, it will almost certainly end in some type of debate or controversy.

So is the system the worst thing ever?


Look back at things from 1991. Miami and Washington split the title. Miami crushed Nebraska 22-0 in the Orange Bowl while the Huskies beat Michigan 34-14. The point is, they didn't get to play each other.

The same thing happened three years later when Penn State was forced to play in the Rose Bowl while Nebraska would win the national title in the Orange Bowl.

Would you rather see something like that happen again?
