too grab my full and loyal attention.

I will use Texas Tech as the example, here is a team that plays in the same grueling conference as Texas and Oklahoma, has only one loss but has plummeted out of all BCS rankings because they lost at the wrong time of the year.

Did they just have a bad game? They were enough for a Texas team that beat Oklahoma, yet they looked like they didn't belong on the same field with Oklahoma.

But both Texas and Oklahoma are ranked ahead of them.. even though they beat one straight up.. the BCS sucks.

But because of the nature of the defeat and more importantly the timing, their season and hopes at a title are gone.

The system isn't fair and doesn't work, this is nothing new but I am done watching college ball again for the season.

It is time for change here too.. about time to install the playoffs and end this crap.

In the double entendre department, this one is a classic candidate. You may or may not have a spare "d" flying around here, Pack. Personally, I think you are dead square balls on accurate (another industry term--catchin' the Melissa T. fascination? :icon_smile: ) - no matter what the initial intent might have been. :thumbleft:

Edit-- I see ya' "fixed" it--shoulda left it... :thumbleft:

I am so used to complaining about Colledge that is just slipped.. you should hear me on gameday.. that poor feller. :lol:

Seriously.. though on the BCS.. it takes the excitement out of the game.. teams should earn it on the field not a bunch of ninny picking money men that won't let go of the old bowl tradition.

I hate it.. every year if fails.. but I guess every year I tune back in until about this time of the year.. repeat cycle.

Damn I hate addictions. ;)

Why play the game if you expect the rankings to dictate the outcome?

Oklahoma Demolished Tech. Tech "just barely" beat Texas. Honestly BCS or not, Oklahoma is and should be ranked higher.

That's exactly why I like the FCS play-off system. They take the top 16 teams,(not necessarily ranked 1-16, but consider schedule and league) and have a play-off. You gotta perform during the season and especially in the play-offs, or it's one and done!
My Montana Grizzlies have been in the play-offs a record 16 years in a row now, and play Texas State here in Missoula this Saturday. Going to be cold and snowy for those Texans.

Here is the problem I have...

Oklahoma beats Tech.. fine rank them higher no doubt.

But Texas beat the Sooners.. so does Texas go ahead of OK?

But then.. Tech beats the Longhorns and yet they are ranked behind them (8th).

How does the BCS determine whom gets the right, if any of these teams do to play in the championship game.

It doesn't work.. I would be willing to bet the any of these three would destroy everyone but maybe Florida in a title game..

The BCS sucks... needs to go to a 8 team playoff... if you like the BCS rankings.. use that as the lynch pin for the 8.
