Changing the BCS
The following was previously posted on a facebook page by John Killough Wangel of Texas.
2000-2001: One-loss teams Miami and Washington are left out of the championship game while one-loss Florida State goes on to lose undefeated Oklahoma. Victims of the BCS: Oklahoma, Miami, and Washington.
2001-2002: Despite being blown out by Colorado (who also won the Big 12 Championship) 62-36, Nebraska goes on to get routed by Miami in the national championship while the human poll favorite Oregon and field proven Buffaloes watch. Victims of the BCS: Miami, Colorado, and Oregon.
2003-2004: LSU, USC, and Oklahoma finish the season with one loss resulting in USC being named AP National Champion and LSU being named the Coaches poll champion. Victims of the BCS: USC and LSU.
2004-2005: Oklahoma goes on to get destroyed by USC 55-19, while three undefeated teams (Utah, Boise State, and Auburn) played in less significant games. Auburn, who convincingly won their bowl game and the SEC that year, along with Utah finished the season undefeated with no championship. Victims of the BCS: USC, Auburn, and Utah.
2005-2006: The only year the stars aligned for a perfect BCS championship, undefeated USC and Texas played for the National Championship. Victims of the BCS: None (surprisingly)
2006-2007: Undefeated Ohio State is automatically in the championship game while undefeated Boise State along with 4 one loss teams (Louisville, Wisconsin, Florida, and Michigan) all bid for the one remaining spot. Florida goes on to beat Ohio State for the championship title while Louisville and Boise State also win their games. Boise State finishes their second undefeated season in three years with no title. Victims of the BCS: Florida, Boise State, and Louisville.
2007-2008: LSU jumps three teams in the final week for a spot in the Championship game against one Ohio State, despite having two losses. One loss Kansas and undefeated Hawaii, along with six other legitimate two loss teams are left out of the championship picture. Victims of the BCS: Kansas, Hawaii, Virginia Tech, Georgia, USC, Oklahoma, Arizona State, West Virginia, and Missouri.
2008-2009: In the closing weeks of the season, OU jumps the team they lost to (Texas) by beating a team they (Texas) had already beaten. This led to a Big 12 title and national championship game for OU while Texas was left out of the national championship picture. Other teams, such as UNDEFEATED Boise State and one-loss Texas Tech have two great seasons and are left out of the BCS bowl games because Cincinnati and Virginia Tech get automatic bids despite having multiple losses.
ONCE AGAIN, the BCS proves it doesn't like settling matters on the field. Texas beat one of the teams head to head who is in the national championship game. Texas Tech beat Texas head to head and isn't in a BCS bowl game. BOISE STATE WAS UNDEFEATED AND DIDN'T GET A SNIFF
You may have noticed that I mentioned the Champion as a victim in some years. In each of these years, the question of "What if..?" will always remain and could tarnish their championship.
This is not just about UTAH. The argument that the BSC plays harder or more difficult schedules just doesn't hold water. They are afraid to play the other teams for fear that they will get kicked out of their own game.
