GO Back to the Old System?%#?
Hopefully the knowledgeable readers of ITB, can add their thoughts, but at this point I feel either have a real championship system or no system at all for college football. Enough already with this BCS Nonsense!!!
Here’s a revolutionary new idea for college football; Go back to the old system. No BCS just the four major bowls. I know this sounds crazy, but isn’t the situation we’re in now crazy. There is no possible way, 0% chance to fairly call any team the sole champion this year. If you’re not going to have a playoff format, then just go back to the old way. The NCAA doesn’t recognize an official champion anyway. The BCS is just a system in place to try to obtain a unanimous opinion on the best team in college football. Even when it seems to work, it truly doesn’t. Based on all the rules governing any “Championship” in any sport, you can’t call the winner of the BCS game the “Champion”.
Point being the BCS is nothing but a theoretically fake championship. The only two accept ways to determine a champion is to have a playoff, or have each team play each other team.
Why even tease ourselves more this year, just don’t have a title game. So we can all come to terms with fact there is no such thing as a real champion in college football. Do we even need a college football champion? Isn’t there something novel about the idea of college football having bowl games and no true champion? I say if we aren’t going to have a playoff, then just go back to the four bowls. You could give one bowl each year the top two choices of teams, so the fans can see their top two logical choice teams play. Why continue using the words “title game” and “champion” in college football unless we go to an accepted champion determining system.
