Default BCS Needs Change!

I agree with Boise St coach on this. Something needs to change. How can they allow two teams from the same conference play in the BCS Championship game? How is a 1 loss team in Boise St playing an unranked Arizona St team with 6 loses??

"Petersen said he would like to see a plus-one implemented in college football to give the top four teams in college football a chance at a national championship. He suggested using a committee similar to what is used in determining the teams that make the NCAA basketball tournament."

I love this idea. It's the only way to find a true champion.

The rest of the article can be found here:

I'm not a Boise fan but they're getting screwed over. Playing a 6-6 team who fired their coach is like a slap in the face.

Over a month without playing a game of football, it's stupid!

I think we need some kind of Congressional investigation.

Maybe Pelosi and Reed can get something going!

Yeah, this year's BCS selections are the most clear signs of money being the only driving force behind the selections. Michigan and VT, really?

A month between games and no playoff is just retarded.

So instead of b****ing about it just stop watching and start watching the division that decides a real champion. I haven't watched FBS football, unless NDSU was beating a FBS team, in 3 years.

They are moving towards 4 super conferences with the winners of the conferences entering a final 4….not a guess.

I have just about lost interest in college football because they choose the winners and losers. Its a terrible system that makes a mockery out of competition.

Between that and the fact that they don't pay the players...I'm just about done.

There needs to be a 4 team playoff, waiting till January 9th to play is ridiculous.

Imagine how pissed off Boise State would be if they ended up making that kick, and still were only #3 in the polls. Maybe even #4 or #5.

There's no reason why they can't have a four or six team playoff really.

Rest of the teams can still play their meaningless bowl games, or have an nit version of college football (teams ranked 7-12 having their own tournament or whatever).

Football games would mean more too.

I kinda like it the way it is. The regular season is the playoff. Only sport anywhere that I know of that does this. Plus, every week is a playoff. We talk about it all the time because the system has flaws, but talk nonetheless.

Oh, so Alabama was knocked out in their playoff game which they lost. I missed reading about that in the paper.

I dont disagree. 12 team playoff. Takes a month. NC in mid to late January. Best team wins.
