The College Football BCS Mess…

For those of you up to date in college football, you know that it is possible that for the 2nd straight year, Texas may be left out of the BCS mix due to automatic bids for the conference champions, despite their #5 BCS ranking each year. This means that unranked, 7-3 Pitt will likley get an automatic BCS bid for winning their conference, but the #5 team in the country gets left behind. We can only hope the voters see this and give Texas enough votes to surpass Cal in the BCS…

The case for a college football playoff gets stronger each year as the BCS continues to foul up something. Either go to a playoff system or get rid of the automatic bids for conference champions. There is no reason that an unranked team should get a trip to one of the top 4 bowls. The objective of the BCS should be to pair up the top 8 teams in the country for 4 exciting games instead of being some convoluted system for promotion of the large conferences…

Maybe one day someone will realize we need a system that promotes a good college football postseason instead of rewarding undeserving teams, penalizing strong conferences for having multiple powerhouse teams, and that penalizes teams equally for losses no matter when in the season the loss takes place. Teams who lose late in the season should be not be penalized more than a team who loses early in the season.

Maybe one season we can beat OU and not have to deal with this in the first place so they can be the ones dealing with this mess….ahhh a Longhorn fan can dream, right?
