    I was wondering how many here would like to see the BCS go away?I enjoy College Football but I quit watching after the Div 1 season is over. I quit watching the Bowl exhibition games back in the early 80's . I would like to see a playoff system but I know it will not happen any time soon.

    The BCS will only change when those in charge think it doesn't work for what they want, but it does work for what they want, and they think it's the right system. It won't change for a while.

    USC getting screwed last year and five undefeated teams this year ought to start throwing a monkey wrench into this BcS thing shouldn't it??

    It really needs to go away. The excuse that it has people talking about college football is BS. When the focus is on something other than the game, that's not a good thing. You think people would stop talking college football if there were a playoff system?? That's bunk. College football playoffs would be as big as or bigger than March Madness.

    The BCS needs to go away for sure. It is the biggest joke around and it's a bad one at that. Playoffs are the only way to go, but they probably won't happen

    Of course Cal got screwed. Had Texas not made it in you could have made the exact same arguments. Had Cal substantially beaten Southern Miss it would have been a different ballgame. Until there is an 8 team playoff, some teams are just going to get screwed.

    I'd prefer to see a playoff as opposed to the BCS, but I doubt it happens anytime soon unless they can find away to get more money from a playoff than they get from the BCS.

    I think the team that got screwed was Auburn. The voters had their heads so far up USC's butt that they did not see that Auburn is the best team in the country. # 2 at the least. The BCS stinks :loser

    The rankings should be
    1. Auburn
    2. OU
    3. USC
    4. UT
    5. Utah
    6.Cal

    Last year I thought LSU and USC should have been playing in the National Championship Game.

    This year I think it should be OU and Auburn.

    I haven't been happy with the process since its inception. I was disappointed in 1998 when Kansas State (to A&M in OT in the Big 12 game) and UCLA (to Miami in the "Hurricane Bowl") lost their last games or we would have had three undefeated teams (with Tennessee, who should have lost the SEC championship game to Arkansas if not for a blunder by the QB downing the ball) that year too. K-State would have been the odd team out.

    They need a new system. I don't buy the argument that the students will be away from school too long. There are playoffs in the lower divisions. Basketball players miss a ton of school days during the tournament. It seems like a double standard.

    They need an 8-game or 4-game playoff system.

    BTW, I sympathize with Cal. Texas got screwed last year. We were number 5 in the BCS and didn't get to go to a BCS game because K-State got an automatic bid and OU was in the National Championship Game. Since only 2 teams from a conference can go, Texas was left out. We had to go to the Holiday Bowl too. Sucks huh?

    Here were some weird scenarios that I read about before the games on Saturday. I liked the one where Cal was #1 in both polls but would have to play in the Holiday Bowl. I also liked the one where Colorado beat OU but couldn't go to a BCS bowl because Texas and OU were #1 and #2 in the BCS.

    That wouldn't be an example of how the BCS is a problem. It would be an example of how the polls are a problem. Voting for a 1 loss Cal team over what would be a 1 loss USC team that beat Cal would be absurd.

    I don't necessarily agree. Just because I beat a team, doesn't necessarily make me better. Is it worse for Cal to lose to a 1-loss USC team early in the season or for USC to lose to a 4-loss UCLA team the last game of the season?
