Dan Wetzel’s BCS obituary is one of the most disingenuous things I’ve ever read. And I’m not saying that out of my longstanding fear of where we’re likely headed with college football’s postseason expansion.
I say it because it’s bullshit to insist that the BCS was created to line the pockets of John Junker, and then go on to admit that the new arrangement “… will make some bowls big money. Bigger than ever…”.
I say it because it’s bullshit to pretend that every argument raised in favor of the BCS was “ludicrous and demonstrably untrue”.
I say it because this is the biggest pile of crap of all:
No discussion of the BCS should focus on who got to play in the title game, even when the game ends up like the last one, a 34-31 classic that crowned Florida State national champions over Auburn on Monday night.
No BCS discussion should focus on who played for the title? Sure makes it easier to win your side of the debate, Dan.
