Its Time To End the BCS

Jack Corsi

This season in college football, we have undefeateds fall to teams they should beat, a game proclaimed the game of the century and the BCS standings once again corrupting it all. This college football season, we could see one of the rarest things known to man, a rematch in the national championship game. But the way the BCS works we may not see this. LSU and Alabama played earlier this year in Tuscaloosa, and this game was what some will call the game of the century. If this game was so good (and it was) then why won’t we see a rematch in the national championship game.

The reason why is because of the BCS and the havoc it has created over the past 10 years. We have seen teams that have had the record to get into the big game, but because of these standings that team has been left out. Teams like the 2004 Auburn Tigers, the 2006 Boise State Broncos and the 2010 TCU Horned Frogs. These teams were all left out of the national championship and ended the season with zero losses.

What is the solution to all of this? A simple 16 or 32 team playoff bracket is the solution. This would finally leave viewers and fans no longer asking questions about who is really our countries #1 college program. But we will not see this because of the college football officials. They believe that the BCS is the solution to all the problems that they had before. But in fact it is just corrupting all of college football.
