The BCS isn’t broken, and never has been. It is a system designed to bring two teams that distinguished themselves for a season to play in a spectacle of a game and theoretically crown a champion of college football; it does this.
What it doesn’t do is produce a true champion. And that’s why this post is here.
I’ve had long and interesting discussions with a few other college football fiends, and there’s no question about it: we’re all in favor of a playoff system in Division I-A (no, not Football Bowl Subdivision here) college football.
The problem is the plan.
And that’s what this post, which will take days, perhaps weeks, to flesh out fully, will address.
