Quit stalling BCS. Nothing you have proposed will do. The time for a credible College Football Playoff is now. We know where you got the idea that a Playoff system is necessary but trying to promote an alternative idea will not work. In fact, your alternative proposal is laughable if not ludicrous. Incidentally, in the time, that it takes you to come to your senses and realize that my idea and format for a credible College Football Playoff is the only option as outlined in a previous article; see about getting the athletes some financial assistance during the school year. Failure to do this will characterize the system as Sports Slavery. It will probably take some echoing to convince the fans that a system which showcase the talents of athletes to make millions and collectively Billions of dollars each year and does not financially support or reward the participants is equivalent to slavery but I have faith that they will very soon.
It is time to stop the charade and unparalleled lunacy. The continuation of this senseless annual trivial parade of Bowl games at the end of which some college football team is declared champion by a group of old men and a computer, followed by the idiotic index finger pointing by the players is an insult to sport fans. It is equally insulting to the Intelligence and Athleticism that these institutions of Higher learning are entrusted with.
Bowl games in college football at the end of which some team is declared the fictitious champion is an insult to the intelligence presumed to exist in the halls of our institutions of higher learning. The fictitious determination of a champion in college football constitutes a mockery of the History of Athleticism. It does not matter what the team looks like on paper or what the computer thinks, or the result said workstation is manipulated to generate.
The championship game must be played on the field. We have all seen teams on paper with talent that it is hard to imagine their opponent winning the game or series. Yet time after time, that is exactly what happens. Examples that come to mind are, the New York Giants beating New England in the Super Bowl, Villanova beating Georgetown in the NCAA championships, the Miami Heat beating the Oklahoma City Thunder in the recent NBA championship. Sure most of us wanted Miami to win but on paper and recent performance, it was difficult to fathom it happening. Most of the people who make a living announcing sports were wrong about who would win the NBA championship. It is fortunate for those announcers that their job did not depend on their predictions otherwise they would be looking for a Job.
How many times have you heard that a computer predicts one athlete would beat the other in the 100-meter dash and the reverse happens? Right more times than not which is interesting since the Summer Olympics of 2012 is about to get started and I am sure there are many announcers offering their forecast on the winner of the 100-meter dash. Pay close attention and see who ends up being right. The College Football championship game should be played on the field. That victory and acclaim to be number one must be settled on the field of play.
If the BCS continue to stall, ignore the Bowl Games on television. If no one watch the games sponsors will know from the ratings. If the ratings are poor, the sponsors will challenge the BCS. If the BCS refuse to comply then the sponsors will pull their advertisement, the Television station will not show the game, and BCS will not make any money. You have to hit them in the pocket book.
Now is the time to develop a Play-off system using the four (4) major or traditional Bowl Games. My choice is use the Rose, Orange, Sugar, and Cotton Bowls. That would mean you add two weeks to the season or reduce regular season by one week and add an extra week, or reduce the regular season by two weeks to accommodate playing the championship game on the field. It could also men that you trash some of the Johnny come lately Fruit of the loom bowl games and make the ending of the season more compact and meaningful. However, it is determined to incorporate those two weeks then we have a week for the pairing of the 4 bowl winners, and a week to match up the two undefeated teams. Sure, keep the other bowls if you wish to placate football junkies who forgot to eat their cold cereal which is probably why they are watching and not playing but put the 8 best teams in the Rose, Orange, Sugar, and Cotton Bowls.
Now I know many will say the students have to get back to classes. I say what classes. We all know that most Foot Ball players do not give a flip about classes. Equally factual, there is no college athlete or Football player who would pass on an opportunity to settle the championship matter on the field. It is time to stop the charade and unparalleled lunacy. The championship game must be played on the field. Now is the time to ignore the Bowl Games on television unless the BCS develop this Play-off system.
