Fix the Dang System

Now it is important that I state to the BLOG UNIVERSE that I am not disputing some of the teams that have won the National Championship over the last 11 years.  Some of these teams were clearly the best teams.   Florida, Alabama, Miami, FSU, Texas….. The rest ehhhhh

The REAL problem that needs to be corrected is the way the opponents to these eventual national champions are determined. To many times we are force fed a media opinion of a "Strong Conference" instead of play on the field, and that is one of the many reasons why Oklahoma and Ohio State got in year after year only to get beat by a total of 179-85.  

To give you some other ideas of why the BCS continually misses the mark of giving us the best championship games each year, and why the #2 team is not always the issue.  

Oklahoma and Ohio State were the #1 ranked team 4 out of the 5 years they were blown out.  Here are the main 3 reasons they get it wrong: Pre-Season Ranking in the Top 5, Strength of Schedule for both Conference and Non Conference.  

All of these items we will dig into down the road.  Needless to say, because of these reasons we don't get to see a real national championship game.  Instead we get one that the BCS, NCAA, and Media determine year after year, and why so many people believe it is a Paper Championship. 

This blog is open to anyone who wants to prove why the BCS is the best system ever invented to prove who are the real National Champions.

  1. Couldn't agree more that the BCS needs to go to a playoff system. There are so many things that can ruin a team's season in one game such as a bad call, injury, missed field goal etc... It is absolutely a necessity and the current system is flawed in so many ways. You cannot have a team go undefeated and unable to contend for a title based on their schedule and conference they play in. On the other hand, there are teams in very competitive conferences losing one game and also unable to compete for a title. This is the main reason why I am a big NFL fan but not very passionate about College Football. It is because once a team loses a game, they're basically done. Championships are built on hard work and teams coming together through adversity and tough times in the end. If the BCS changed their system to a playoff, I believe they would bring in a whole new fan base such as people like myself. Also I would like to say if my team is not winning or competing for the title, then I am uninterested with the outcome.

    This can be said for the Alamo Bowl, Chick-Fil-A Bowl and all the other rediculous bowl games.
