On this episode of the In The Bleachers Podcast we've got Matt Zemek from the Scout.com College Football News website here to discuss the hottest topic in the BCS vs Playoff Battle: Butler vs Boise State. Zemek, a playoff advocate, steps up to the plate to discuss the most recent Butler vs Boise State article that he and his CFN staff partners created and your's truly is here to take on all comers.
We first discuss the parallels between Boise State, a team with a decade long run of legitimate success against the big boys and the Butler Bulldogs, a team that's had some post season success but capitalized on an improbably post season run. Zemek sees the two as relative equals, your host gives the Broncos their due as I see success on the gridiron as a more noteworthy success. After all I do remember Harold "the Show" Arcineaux going off to upset the Heels.
Our argument turns towards the methodology of selecting a champion as college basketball "leaves it up to chance" with the field of 64 while football is set up to be Goliath on Goliath every single year. As a proponent for great on great your host and Matt Zemek discuss the merits of each system. We wrap up looking for methods to shore up the current system and end in a universal agreeance that Strength of Schedule must be factored into the BCS picture for the sake of college football.
