The BCS System Is EFFED!! Let’s Start A Campaign.

Updated: December 2, 2007

Well, that’s it, the BCS is f#$ked. As if we all didn’t know already. At this point, what can the American public do to get the college football championship structure changed? Can we unionize? No, let’s start a campaign. What kind of campaign? I’m not sure yet.

But if something is not done, we will continue to say…”If there was ever a year which made the case for a playoff system….” for well, every year. But this year is something else. Absurd doesn’t even begin to describe. Who is going? Stay tuned for the results this evening.

    • You’re going to tell me that Ohio State has a National Championship team?
    • Oklahoma either?
    • Georgia without even getting to the SEC championship game?
    • LSU’s two losses?
    • Hawaii? Please.
    • Va-Tech? Nope, they got blown out by LSU.
    • USC? Only beat two teams with winning records. Way to go Crap-10.

Here are the voting results from the latest ESPN SportsNation poll. Pretty safe to say that my feelings are in tune with America’s. Save for I think March Madness would still be a bigger event, and playoff format….doesn’t matter, just get one. So, get the POINT college football. Change now.
