Yes, it is that time of year. Where people come out of the wood works to complain about something they barely understand and have absolutely no interest in other than criticism. College Football Bowl Season, and the BCS selection system. Match ups, for those interested: http://espn.go.com/college-football/overview/_/week/17 Now, I myself am rather a fan of the system. I think it puts a lot more energy into seasons than would exist with a playoff system. For the past few years, I've thought they did a pretty decent job as far as getting things close. This year however, the system is finally starting to show cracks. Looking down that list, there is only one match that was appropriately selected, and that would be the Rose Bowl (one of the few times AQ's have done their job). The rest however, is leading to one huge disaster of a bowl season. I could gripe for hours on this, and over the next few weeks, probably will. I'll start with the point that is getting at me most though. Alabama, playing for a National Championship. Boise State (#7) was denied a BCS bowl berth, on the grounds that they failed to win their conference championship. Considering Alabama didn't even play for theirs, I fail to see that as a valid argument. And the Sugar Bowl...seriously? Virginia Tech vs. Michigan? That one will undoubtedly receive the vote for dud of the year. Stanford kicked the crap out of VT in the Orange Bowl last year, and you'll likely see Michigan do the same this year. So, thoughts, comments, discussion, criticism, flames? Anyone actually attend a college that is bowl bound this year? PS: As a Southern Californian, I feel absolutely obligated to beg. Matt Barkely, one more year! USC National Champs next year.
