It makes a mockery of the idea of players going to class even more than other sports.
    Both are money driven and either way you slice it, the players are making a heckuva lot of moeny for their schools and conferences. I don't know what the solution is for the BCS. If you take 4 teams and do a playoff, then you could have teams 5, and 6 making a valid argument. If you take 8 teams, then 9, 10, 11 could make an argument that they deserve in. Was it right for Saban to vote Okie St. 4th in the final coaches poll? As for 1 and done, I think it needs to be changed. I'd love to see 3 years, but I don't think that is realistic. I could see 2 years, maybe.


    I disagree. if your number 5 or six in the polls then you don't have a valid argument. how many years have we been saying.g at the end of the year. " I really think # 7 had a real shot at the title." I think four works out pretty well althought scrapping the bowls and doing a 16 team is the way to go. and I don't want to hear about well then the players will miss class. how many days of class did ku or uk go to in the month of march ...5? 6?

    BCS for sure. Much bigger problem IMO.

    So you're saying we need to get rid of the SEC?

    From strictly a standpoint of standings in the poll, yes, you can make that statement. But I am saying there are 2-3 teams who could say that they should be in the top 4 and should have a shot and the polls are too subjective. I'm not sure there is a perfect system.

    I don't like neither of them, but if I had to pick one, probably the BCS. I'm sick of the same teams every year

    No it shouldn't, high school kids should be able to go pro after high school if they want.

    1 and done.

    BCS has only really screwed up one year, but I'll be the first to say it screwed that year up royally.

    1 and done hasn't done a single ounce of good. The BCS has worked much more consistently.

    Well from an ISU fan perspective, doesn't the 1 and done help us, so why would we want to see that go? Unless it went back to letting them declare out of High School.

    We don't need the likes of Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin, or KU recruits staying in the conference any longer than they have to.

    Yeah I don't get why there is a need to force kids to go to college at that point, they're adults, they should be able to make the decision if a team is willing to take them on.

    One and done. People will ALWAYS whine and argue about who the "true" champion should be regardless, and there will always be a "better way". The one-and-done, however, is not only hurting college basketball, but more importantly, allowing kids to fool themselves into thinking that an education isn't important.




    Paul Rhoads' players never quit.

    I agree with this. IMO, they just need to take away the restriction, if anything. However, that is an NBA rule (if I understand correctly), so if the NBA wants to prevent players from entering right out of high school, that's up to them.

    I think the BCS is much more in need of change, but I don't think many agree with me on why. My opinion is, if you're going to let MAC, WAC, MWC, etc. teams play in your "Division", you have to give them a reasonable chance at a national championship. So I'd prefer a system that gives mid- and low-major teams a reasonable chance to win the national championship.
