This is the time of year when you can't turn on Sports talk radio without hearing hours of complaints about how screwed up the BCS system is. I for one have long concluded, like just about every American sans the few dozen University Presidents who like the smell of BCS cashola, that the only way to make the sport have any modicum of fairness is to institute some sort of playoff system. Yet I'm not naive enough to think that complaints from blogs, scores of fans, or media talking heads will have any impact on University Presidents who are making calculated business decisions. Indeed, this problem can not be solved until it is no longer in the interest of College Presidents to resist the pull for a playoff system. Because of this, each year around this time, I start to hope for the chaotic events to occur in College Football. And this year, the chaos might be somewhat realistic.
This year's dream match-up - TCU vs. Bosie State in the BCC National Championship. While this might be a College Football fan's dream come true, once the dust settles, CFB power brokers will realize what an insane system we have. Picture this, Bama loses to Auburn (the biggest stretch in my scenario), Bama beats Florida in the SEC Championship, and Texas loses either at Texas A&M or at Nebraska. Additionally, Cinci may lose at Pitt. That very well may leave us with a Horned Frogs vs. Broncos national championship game. And then watch the uproar from the major conferences and 1 loss team that won road games against premier programs. Watch the critics question a team whose biggest win was beating Oregon at home in week 1. And in the end, all the complaining will be good for the game. Because in fairness, these may be the two best teams in the country but would it be fair for them to play in a National Championship game given the scenario above? How much more deserving would it be if each of those teams beat Florida and Texas respectively to end up playing in a final game Championship. I say, go Horned Frogs and bring on the upsets. Let the chaos begin!
