It is broke..
From their point of view... why the hassle of changing it if you still make oodles of money playing a worthless computer ranked matchup?
The SEC wants the tourney, mostly because of what happened to Auburn a few years back. Undefeated and not in the BCS title game. Bull****.
it isn't broke because it does what it's supposed to do.
Which isn't the issue at all. What's broken is the fact that the championship is not decided on the field. The BCS does not aim to remedy that, so technically, you're correct. It does what it's supposed to, which is not provide a clear champion.
The bottom line is, as long as the schools are making assloads of money, it doesn't matter what the majority of fans want.
As I said before....
Auburn going undefeated and not being in the title game means that the system is broken.
You are entitled to your opinion, but you are wrong.
That is what the BCS is supposed to do. Not any of that other "champion decided on the field" crap. It's all about money, and it will always be about money. If somebody can figure out a way to get the Rose Bowl to not think so highly of itself that it will stop impeding a playoff system, then that person should be put in charge of NCAA College football.
Well dice it up any way you want...they ain't changing it. I told you so.
I figured they weren't I knew congress was looking into the BCS and I can't find the link on here (maybe NSZ)
I saw this on espn a couple weeks back ..... dont recall the details .
nope. the BCS is supposed to whittle it down to two teams and take as much human bias out of the equation as possible and relying more on what happens on the field. that's what it does every year.
true, took all the human bias out of it
If you honestly think the BCS system eliminates all bias, you are far far gone, and this discussion is pointless.
You're wrong sir.
The only reason this system is in place is $$. They could give a rats a$$ about "whittling down" to two teams.
Bias? I could argue almost every year dating back to Nebraska/Michigan back in '97 that the NCAA can't get it right. They got lucky as hell with USC/Texas a couple years ago....
As long as the current Big Ten President is around, there will never be a playoff system. The Rose Bowl is worth too much to them.
Here's the bottom line. How many of college football fanatics would stop going to bowl games until the BCS capitulates and puts in a playoff system?
Until you hit these people where it hurts, the pocketbook, the BCS has absolutely no reason to change.
Since there is no alternative to college football and hence no competition, there are two way to change this system. First, stop spending money on college football or, second, stop buying the products that advertise within the BCS System. (The Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, FedEx Orange Bowl, CitiCorp Rose Bowl)
So Pac 10 + Big 10 > SEC + ACC?
I HATE that OSU is against this
You mean they got it right?...
If y'all want to eliminate bias, get rid of the preseason polls, not the BCS.
There is competition but you wouldn't be cheering for OSU or UT or USC. You would have to cheer for Appalachian State, Texas State, Sam Houston, and Youngstown State. But those arn't "big name schools" so the chances aren't likely.
I'm pretty sure everybody here can see that the only sport that doesn't have a playoff system is the only one that's right.
BCS just won't change unless ratings, and advertising dollars both go down. Only then will they scramble to make fans happy again.
Also, a big F U to the Rose Bowl and the Big Ten. Cause Ohio State and Michigan was just a dynamite game last year.
Don't these people watch college basketball?
How much more exciting can you get?
Probably doesn't make any money though..................
