Ripping The BCS

The Bowl Championship Series must be run by a group of 14-year-old girls who list slushies and Aunt Anne’s pretzels as their reason for living one week and then develop an eye shadow fetish a week later.

While wonderfully naive, they are quite fickle. There’s no big picture for the majority of teenagers and they change their collective minds as quickly as an instant message.

On second thought, I take that back. A group of teenage girls could probably get it right.

 In the current BCS standings, a pair of undefeated teams won by at least 30 points and fell three spots in the weekly BCS standings.

And there’s no outrage. No shock. No playoff talk.

Why would Boise State and Cincinnati drop do much after convincing wins?

The only answer: check out who moved up in the standings. The University of Southern California checks in at number 5 in the current BCS release. They beat a mediocre Oregon State team at home on Saturday evening by six points. They’ve lost a game to one of the worst teams in the Pacific-10 Conference. They also face a suddenly strong Oregon team on Halloween.

The bias shown in favor of the power conferences in collegiate athletics isn’t new.

It also isn’t fair.

Does USC deserve to be in the top 5 in the BCS at the midway point of the season? No.

They have a loss. Simple as that.

Hopefully, in the next six weeks or so, we can figure out who are the best teams in college football. Until then, I think I’ll eat a Fun Dip.
