Default Another BCS rant

College football is dead to me. This latest travesty exposes the BCS for exactly what it is; a money grab by NCAA. Who wants to watch another 9-6 overtime victory by two teams that have already faced eachother. Hell, Alabama was not even in there conference championship game but they get the right to play for the BCS championship? Are you kidding?

Every Oklahoma State fan should feel absolutely robbed. I say boycott the games, do not contribute any more time, energy, or money to this farce.

Agreed that the National Championship Game is of zero interest to me. I just don't understand how this process is not upgrade after years and years of failure

I'm not on Oklahoma State fan, but I certainly feel they got robbed.

So, if I got this right, LSU has to beat Alabama twice to win the National Championship, but Alabama only has to beat LSU once to win the National Championship. Yeah, that's fair.

What? You are saying a team that doesn't win its own division in its conference shouldn't play for the NC? Absolute lunacy, I say!

The BC$ makes perfect sense. When you realize that it's really the Benjamin$ Champion$hip $erie$.

IMO college football is the best sport on earth. But something needs to happen, and quickly, before the whole thing is completely destroyed. I hate what is happening right now.

This is gonna be an unpopular opinion. BUT the BCS got it right...The NC game isn't about what game people wanna see, or about whether the best two teams had already faced each other, or a game between two conference champions...It's a game that is to be played by the TWO BEST teams in the country. PERIOD!!! Nothing else matters.. Regardless of anything that can be said in OSU's favor. Alabama's ONLY loss of the season was against an undefeated LSU team, that people insist are that far ahead of everyone else...Oh Yeah! And that loss was in overtime...Basically, none of these three teams have lost in regulation. And two of these 3 teams faced each other, while the other finished regulation tied with a team that only had won 4 games in regulation. OSU has given up 34 points to Louisiana-Lafayette, 33 to Tulsa, beat a 6-6 Texas A&M team by a score of 30-29, gave up 45 points to Kansas St, and of course lost in 2OT to a 6-6 Iowa State team...

I'm sorry but I don't think a team that lost in overtime to one 6-6 team, while only beating another 6-6 team by 1, belongs in the NC game.. OSU only has themselves to blame for not getting a chance in the NC game, and not the BCS.

Let's keep in mind that I'm an Ohio State fan, and despise the SEC as much as everyone else..

Now for those claiming that the BCS fixed this game to make $$$$...How can that be, when everyone was talking out against it, and said they wouldn't watch a rematch? Seems to me, like that would actually cost them some money.. No fix here. Just the TWO BEST teams in the country. PERIOD!!!

I think Alabama is a good pick for the championship game. HOWEVER, I think their should be a multi-team playoff. So, yes, I think the BCS is crappy.

Its not a perfect system, but the BCS got it right....under the criteria set forth to date the two best teams are playing for the championship. The fact that it is a rematch is irrelevant, see NFL wildcard team (Packers) win the Super Bowl while avenging REGULAR season losses. The coaches and others that know football know a great D will win out over a great O.... they also knew OK state ranked #107 in the FBS defense was going to get run out of the game.....AL or LSU would beat them by 17-28 pts. Alabama's best win is better (ark) and loss is better (lsu). I hate that State loss to a 28 pt underdog team in Iowa St, had that not happened they would be in the game without issue......however that didn't happen and the best two teams are going to play for it, winner take all. I am thankful Alabama made it back up the polls due to others losing, that was fortunate, agreed, but the facts are if Alabama played OK st. and the rest of the Big 12 Alabama would be undefeated, if you flip that scenario St. would have lost to Al, LSU, Ark and possibly S.Carolina and or Georgia. That should bring the topic full circle and put reality back into play.

Alabama had THREE victories over top 25 opponents, Oklahoma State had SEVEN! LSU did not get a first down in the entire first half of the SEC championship game versus a Georgia team that lost to Boise State. Stellar offenses, no, great defenses, yes.
