I know most of you know where I stand on this issue. I certainly do not need to author another "BCS is garbage" Fanpost as it has been played more times than Sergio Kindle's blasting of Taylor Potts. Oh, what the hell...this never gets old: Enjoy
Back to the point at hand, based on last season and this season (there are so many others, why list them all), it appears we will be mired in controversy more often than not. Which brings me to my question: Seeing how a playoff would have benefited us last season, but could be a hindrance to the ultimate goal this season, would you take an 8 team playoff right now for this season as at the risk of Texas being knocked off by #7, #3 or #6 in the 2nd round? Of course I would, as the Horns would be beneficiaries more often than not. Assuming Cincy, TCU, Texas, Florida, and Boise win out, with 5 unbeatens, aren't the Horns, Gators, and Tide simple beneficiaries of high preseason rankings? Each has struggled with mediocre teams this season. Are the big three truly that more deserving than TCU and Cincy? Boise, I do not have a problem with based on this:
Bronco fans, your schedule is beyond pathetic. One win over Oklahoma and two over Oregon does not make you a contender. If Boise was in the Big XII, they would be TT...a very nice 8-4 to 9-3 team. Enjoy your middle tier bowl game were you to reside in a REAL conference.
Florida and Bama, you both have benefited from, shall we say, home cookin' to ensure your cementing at the top of your conference. No conspiracy here...just an observation.
So, check out the poll...
