    BCS Worst Nightmare

    If Texas beats OSU, there are going to be four teams that could intelligently claim they deserve to be #1 (besides the winner of Florida vs OU, Texas, Utah, and USC). The BCS is a total failure.

    That being said, I still like all the bowl games.

    Re: BCS Worst Nightmare

    I hope Utah gets some #1 votes. I would love to see a split national title.

    Re: BCS Worst Nightmare

    Only one poll is bound to the BCS. The other one still can vote as they please.

    Re: BCS Worst Nightmare

    have the ap arrange to make sure 4 teams all end with the same number of votes. That would really get some playoff talk going.

    Re: BCS Worst Nightmare

    Yup, It is time for a playoff. This win by Utah isn't like the Boise State win against OU in 2007. That was an upset, this isn't. Utah had the better team, end of story. When Utah is one of the top 4 teams in the country and they don't have an opportunity to play for a National title, that is pathetic.

    College Football is my favorite sport, but it is all about money and that is absolutely pathetic. Who cares if the small schools don't have the tradition or fan bases of the BCS conferences? Who are we to say that they don't deserve a chance to play for a national title? That is pathetic.

    It is time for a playoff. NOW.

    Re: BCS Worst Nightmare

    Utah is the national champions in my eyes. They beat Michigan at the big house, & yes I know they had an off year. They beat Oregon State the week after they beat USC. They beat #12 TCU in conference 13-10. Then #14 BYU handly 48-24. Last but not least #4 Alabama 31-17. This itself should prove that Florida, Oklahoma, & Texas hands down DO NOT DESERVRE THAT CHAMPIONSHIP AND THAT THE BCS STANDS FOR BIG CASH SELLERS. If Oklahoma or Florida win they should call the BCS commitee and tell them they want Utah to have it. And this really goes on Urban Meyers shoulders cause if it wasn't for Utah and their success he would not be in Florida right now and that is fact. And for Bob Stoops he should know how it feels to be Utah. He has had it done to him before. SO GIVE THEM WHAT THEY HAVE EARNED! THE SEARS TROPHY FOR BEING THE ONLY TEAM TO GO UNDEFEATED IN FOOTBALL THIS YEAR!!!!!

    Great post, I totally agree.

    Re: BCS Worst Nightmare

    I still don't understand how the playoff doesn't happen, and you can't tell me it's about the money because I know the NCAA would make more $$ having a 1v4 and 2v3 semifinal game than playing the MagicJack St. Petersburg Bowl, Eaglebank Bowl, New Mexico Bowl and Motor City Bowl combined.

    You could play the playoff before the holiday break and then play the championship after New Years, basically the same schedule as the current bowl roster.

    You'd have 4 fewer teams in the bowls every year, but that would mean teams might actually have to prove their worth to get into a bowl game instead of just having to squeak by with a winning record (no offense to Memphis, Southern Miss, Minnesota or Florida Atlantic).

    Re: BCS Worst Nightmare

    I think university presidents are against it. A true playoff would be tough for fans to get to as well. There has to be something different than the current system.

    I was just thinking this as well. Utah has had two undefeated teams in 4 years. What more do they need to do? I like the bowls, but honestly I have only caught bits and pieces of each because none of them are really important in the grand scheme of the BCS, except for the "national title" game. I would be absolutely glued to the tv if these were playoff games. Think March Madness times a hundred.

    Did you watch the SEC championship game? That was basically a national semi-final playoff game.
