It will not live up to expectations because so many are indifferent about it,
and are tired of all things Bama and SEC dominance, especially in a championship
created by computers and opinion polls which literally take the decision off the
playing field!A true playoff of conference champions and at-large
teams, as in basketball, would create such a stir, excitement, and associated
revenue, those currently in power would wonder why it hadn't been done yet.
The current system is a monopoly and a money grab. All FBS level
teams need equal and fair access, which just might bring more parity to the
sport, and add a much needed component that no opinion poll could ever provide,
@ IgualmentsWell stated!"On any given day..."
just spooks the SEC because they don't account for the cup cakes on each of
their wschedules and always dominate the rankings, just because they are the
SEC. And they couldn't bear to play in a play-off system and lose before
reaching the title game. Just look at the agnst when Utah defeated Alabama.
(Some of us Cougar fans were pround of those Utes.) The old guard of the SEC
had to eat crow and they weren't very gracious about it. This
year they have teams that were 6 - 6 going to bowls they had losing records in
their own conference. But they are the big money boys and the NCAA is spineless
to take control of the sport. Last year's game between two SEC
teams that had already played was a joke of cruel proportion. At least this
year there is the SEC and an independent. If the SEC was ever left out of the
title game you'd see another big change to the BCS to guarantee them a spot
Reality says Bama 24 Irish 10 Pitt, BYU and a couple others could
of or should have won over ND. Don't get me wrong they did win and deserve
to be in this game but in the true scheme of things it should be Ohio State and
ND and Ohio State would most likely win. So who is the better team of all well
I agree with the other comments. Make a playoff and let them fight it out. You
will always get a surprise or 2 and that is what makes it fun. BUT from the
view I see Bama is the better team. ND is a good team and also lucky and maybe
just maybe if they play a good game they may have one more luck of the Irish
left in them. One thought. If Utah State had made the FG over
Wisconsen and also had a few plays go different against BYU and won that game do
you think they would be in this or another BCS game? Not saying they are better
but just asking the question. Things that make you go Hummmmmmmm.
Even ESPN doubts the current format. Chris Fowler just said "most coaches
agree that with a 40-day plus layoff, it makes this game essentially a 1-game
Ouch. I guess we know the answer to the headline. No matter how broken the BCS
system is, it's hard to argue that 'Bama isn't the best team in
the country. Would I like to see them play Oregon? Oh, yeah. But it's not
like they are a "controversial" champ.
And so now we see the answer. It reminds one of how many times the NFL playoffs
have some super games just to see the eventual Super Bowl be a bust. Similar
results this time, too.Anyone notice how with a 28-point lead and 4
minutes left in the game the starters were still playing for Bama? And how when
his team was flagged for delay of game (5 yards) that Nick came unglued and
ranted into the officials ear? He should have been flagged for 15 and told to
shut up or he would be tossed. Bad manners by coaches, and officials that let
them get away with it, send no good messages to our youth. In my view the Bama
coach is a $5.3 million baby and acted like a jerk. He should know better....
