A friend (and graduate of Iowa) sent me this link....
While this is a satirical view from a Hawkeye's point of view, it does have some truth in pointing out yet another flaw of the BCS.
I also want to point out something about Bama's schedule and Iowa's schedule.... (as of Friday 11/6)
The overall record of Bama's opponents is 33 and 33. The overall record of Iowa's opponents is 44 and 31.
Bama has had 6 home games and 2 road games (Kentucky & Ole Miss). Iowa has had 6 home games and 3 road games (Penn St, Wisconsin, Mich St).
I'm not trying to start a debate and I'm sure there are a ton of statistics that would point to a favorable view for any team to make the championship game. I'm just saying the media and so-called "experts" assume Bama and/or Florida is/are the better team(s) just because it's the SEC. And that Iowa is "weaker" because they win ugly and the past failures of the Big 10.
I think we should stop making assumptions and I wish some changes would be made to the overall system. Would Iowa be ranked higher than Bama if they were ranked higher to start the season?? Would Iowa be ranked higher if the Coaches hadn't dropped them out of the rankings after they beat Arizona??
