ArmyBengal Posted September 21, 2009 Report Share Posted September 21, 2009 Ok, here's what I'm thinking and I thought it would be interesting to discuss. Maybe not, but here it goes.The Buckeyes (which I am a fan) have gotten a whole rash of sh*t for not being able to "win the big game" over the past few seasons. They have gotten beat by LSU and Florida in the National Championship games, lost to Texas in last years Fiesta Bowl, and have lost BIG regular season games to USC two years in a row.Now you have a team like USC, who is ALWAYS getting the praise of the media, getting beat by some unranked team over the past handful of years ruining their chances of even getting to a National Championship. They aren't the only school in this situation, but I'm using them as an example. Everyone loves Pete Carroll, (yes I think he's a great coach) and that team has been stacked, especially on defense for years.So over the past few years since Ohio State has gotten it's label and USC keeps getting upset, which is worse ??Would you rather have a team that consistently puts themselves in position to win a National Championship or BCS bowl game, only to lose or have a team that consistently is thought to be the best team in the country, only to get beat by some unranked team that takes them out of National Championship contention ??Don't get me wrong here, when it comes to college football, I have respect for all programs that are solid and yes, I put USC in that category.My point is, the system is horribly flawed and why I see a playoff system as the most viable option to determine the National Championship.Heck, it's to a point where Ohio State follows their loss to the number 3 team in the country with a 38-0 victory (yes I know it's Toledo) and they are rewarded with a 2 spot fall in the rankings from #11 to #13. Miami jumps all the way from #20 to #9 and Oklahoma leap frogs the Buckeyes after their win against f*cking Tulsa ?? They lost to f*cking BYU for Christ's sake. I just think the whole system is flawed and the current rankings only solidified what I already knew.Any thoughts ?? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
