Random Topics - Bowl Championship Series (BCS)

The Bowl Championship Series (BCS) is a selection system designed to give the top two teams in the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) an opportunity to compete in a "national championship game".The BCS relies on a combination of polls and computer selection methods to determine relative team rankings, and to narrow the field to two teams to play in the BCS National Championship Game held after the other college bowl games.

1 And the worst part is, the rematch was even MORE boring than some people thought it would be. If all the so-called "national" title game is going to be from now on is two SEC teams not scoring TDs against each other than screw it, I'm out. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on January 10, 2012, 9:26 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I don't even bother with this BS anymore. I quit watching Bowl games in 05. A playoff atmosphere would be nice to see but I don't think it's going to happen. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on January 8, 2012, 11:42 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Here here! The Fiesta Bowl and Rose Bowl were both super exciting games. I want to see Oklahoma State and Oregon move on to the next round to take on Alabama or LSU, but nope. The Sugar Bowl and the Orange Bowl matchups don't interest me in the slightest and the BCS final game (not calling it a championship game) is a joke. Set up the four major bowl games as the genesis of an eight team playoff. Two teams battle in the Orange Bowl, two in the Rose, two in the Sugar, two in the Fiesta. Winners move on to play in a semi final before two play in a true championship game. It adds only two more games to the schedule for two schools, one more game to the schedule for four schools, and makes the bowl season a heck of a lot more interesting and could challenge the NFL in ratings. Are half empty stadiums, watered down corporate bowls really cutting the mustard? -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on January 3, 2012, 6:24 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 So who does LSU play in the National Title game this year?!? Oklahoma State?!? Nope. Stanford?!? No way! Alabama?!? Yup! A boring little rematch that the pollsters pick sounds good!!! *ugh!* Sugar Bowl. Do they pick Kansas State and/or Boise State since they had good seasons?!? NO!!! We will reward mid level Top 25 teams Michigan and Virginia Tech!!! Get a goddamn playoff set up now! -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on January 3, 2012, 7:46 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Take every Div-1A conference winner (or, in the case of two-division conferences, the two division winners), add the remaining schools (including indies) with the best records, for a total of 32 schools, then do a basketball-style playoff series. That's four rounds, plus the national championship game. Start the series in mid-December, with games every Saturday, and only a week between the semifinal games and the final (which would take place around the third Saturday in January). No postseason for 6-6 teams, no popularity-contest bowl invites, no weird BCS mathematical formulas. Problem solved. (You're welcome, America.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 6, 2011, 3:13 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 Hopefully the Biased Chump-ionship Series falls soon. Oregon deserves to be #1 right now in my opinion, but since the BCS has its head so far up Oklahoma's ass, they get the nod for the top spot. I can't wait for Mizzou to stomp OU so that we can all see what kind of a joke this system is. -- Submitted By: (ScottyB) on October 18, 2010, 8:03 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Kingbk, this is why I call it the Big12CS, because it sure is strange how it *always* favors Big 12 teams over all others, and it *always* favors Oklahoma over all other Big 12 teams. Seriously, the Sooners will always somehow be "voted" into the title game no matter what. It's happened three times already! -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on October 18, 2010, 6:00 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 Oklahoma jumping Oregon and Boise State this weekend to the top of the rankings is utter horse crap. The BCS needs to go the way of the dodo bird. It's time for a playoff or something, even if it's just among the undefeated teams. If Obama could do that (he said he'd like one), he'd win back a teeny bit of respect from me. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on October 18, 2010, 4:15 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 The favoritism, the factoring in past performances...something like the BCS just isn't right. Get that crap outta here and focus on the here and now - past season performances MEAN NOTHING. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on October 18, 2010, 11:59 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

11 Speaking of Boise, all the pressure is on them to run the table so that they'll at least have a chance to play in a BCS bowl. Boise is currently #4 (they were leapfrogged by a BCS team even though they beat NMSU by 59, go figure), but since they aren't from a BCS conference, they better hope they run the table to even be CONSIDERED for a shot at any big-name bowl. If they lose a game, even just ONE game this year, they might as well kiss their hopes goodbye. They probably wouldn't even be ranked anymore if they were to lose. Meanwhile, a big-name school that has the BCS kissing its feet (USC and Oklahoma, I'm looking at YOU) can lose three games in one year and still manage to keep their ranking. The sooner the BCS crumbles, the sooner we can get back to a system of college football where everyone has an equal shot at the title. -- Submitted By: (ScottyB) on October 4, 2010, 4:15 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
12 And the even sadder thing... You tell these people that ok, then maybe their team should go play Boise, either away or especially at home, and what happens? The little cowards go to run and hide. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on September 30, 2010, 4:00 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
13 Know what the BCS reminds me of? The "in" crowd in high school. Why? Because they wouldn't let anyone in who wasn't already a member no matter what. Already you've got people arguing that Boise shouldn't be allowed to play for a title period and a one loss team from any of the BCS conferences should get in ahead of them instead, and these people are VEHEMNT about this. They;re more passionate about this then they are about REAL problems, like crime and hunger and disease and corruption!!! These people have the attitude of "screw all that other stuff, the REAL crime is Boise playing for the title!" It's literally insane. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on September 29, 2010, 8:33 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

15 I agree about Notre Dame being overrated at the beginning of every season. They could go 4-8 one year and the next year be ranked like #13, WTF? -- Submitted By: (ScottyB) on March 22, 2010, 5:42 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
16 I think that is something a BCS hater is just throwing out there (though some voters do stupidly go by past performance/history in their votes. Why else is Notre Dame so overrated at the start of every season?). The system, even with that not being true, as it is, is a joke. The only reason this, and the bowls are still around is because bowls like the Orange, Rose, etc. want to make their money, and fear becoming irrelevant if a playoff was created (and look at the Basketball tourney. If you think that is huge, imagine a NCAA Football tourney!). The BCS for rankings I would keep around for seeding for such a tourney, but the BCS only works if your two best teams have the fewest losses. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on March 21, 2010, 10:42 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
17 I remember reading somewhere that part of the criteria for determining a team's ranking is how well that team has performed throughout that team's existence. Maybe that's why USC or Oklahoma could lose FOUR TIMES in one season and still be ranked. Past success should have absolutely nothing to do with a team's CURRENT ranking. The only time the past should be considered is when the BCS committee is evaluating a team's improvements or declination from the previous season. I find it ridiculous that USC's national championship from 2004 should have ANY bearing on their CURRENT ranking. On another note, there is definitely an unfair balance in the current BCS system. If a powerhouse like Florida, Alabama, or Texas were to lose a game, they would probably still be in contention for a BCS bowl AND a national championship berth. Hell, an LSU team who had lost TWICE in the 2007 regular season still competed in-and won-the national championship game. However, if a mid-major like Boise State were to lose just ONE game, not only would their shot at ANY BCS game be gone, they would also likely be dropped from the Top 25, no matter how high they were ranked before the loss. This difference in margin of error just isn't right. -- Submitted By: (ScottyB) on March 21, 2010, 1:02 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
18 I feel bad for Boise State and Cincinnati right now. They can both finish the season undefeated and the best bowl game they'll get a chance to play in is the Fiesta Bowl...if they're lucky. These biased BCS pollsters need to be replaced, and fast. -- Submitted By: (ScottyB) on October 6, 2009, 4:34 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
