So, the BCS bowls selections have come out, and it seems like everyone outside of Louisiana and Alabama are angry about what has transpired. A BCS championship against not just conference foes, but division foes seems unimaginable—especially since No. 3 Michigan was denied in 2006 when it lost to No. 1 Ohio State by the same margin Alabama lost to LSU this year.

Also, how many more times do we have to suffer through BCS games with two- and three-loss teams when there are one-loss teams high in the rankings? Why even keep the rankings when they don't even matter at the end of the year and teams are picked on some sort of popularity contest?

Four of the Top 10 teams in the country did not make a BCS bowl.  Even if a conference cannot have three teams in BCS games that still leaves No. 7 Boise State and No. 8 Kansas State left out.   

The bowls have become about pairing the two teams that will generate the most fans and money for the sponsors, the BCS and ESPN rather than pairing the best teams against each other.

I'm thankful MLB doesn't pick World Series foes like this or the Yankees would play the Red Sox every year. 

Needless to say, most of us think that the BCS could have done a better job at putting quality teams against each other. So, here is how the BCS could have hit a home run in the bowls this year.
