Inside the BCS, unintentional comedy for Nov. 30

New, 1 comment

On its blog at PlayoffProblem.com, the BCS group posts an article by Dennis Dodd at CBSSports.com (in its entirety and without link, which is a pretty severe copyright infringement, but that's a conversation for another time).

The strongest argument for the BCS in Dodd's piece?

The Bowl Championship Series, by dumb luck more than master plan, has worked this season. For the second time in the BCS era, it’s possible there could be five undefeated teams at the end of the season (Alabama/Florida, Texas, TCU, Boise State and Cincinnati). For the first time, all of them would be playing in BCS bowls.

Success by dumb luck. Ignore process. Point to results. Like I said over the weekend, you seriously can't make this stuff up.

Once again, you have the BCS holding up the argument, "Hey, this system might suck, but at least it doesn't suck as bad as it did before," and, "The have-nots should be happy we've given them a seat at the table at all." I wish I owned my own P.R. firm so I could get paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to fail miserably at my job.
