    I don't know what the point of the BCS is with the A.P. out of it we'll have split national champs again. The boston globe is reporting that the A.P. is pulling out of the BCS next year.

    Are journalists the dumbest... or the whiniest profession in the country?

    I know it's far from universal... but what a bunch of dambass crybabies...

    The world didn't conform to their wishes, so they'll just go do their own thing.

    Oh, how I hate the media

    Are they even technically tied into the BCS? What if the BCS still decided to use the AP rankings as a factor even if the AP "pulled out"...could the AP sue? Is the AP ranking even copyrighted?

    Screw the AP poll.

    The NCAA can either institute a playoff, go to the Plus-1 model, or stay with the current system. But the NCAA should declare the champion according to how they want it to be determined. The hell with the AP poll - if they want to pull out, make their poll meaningless.

    Or about as meaningful as the fact that Illinios is currently #1 in the basketball poll. The basketball poll is worthless as soon as the postseason starts.

    I might feel a little different about it if most of those whining AP writers actually knew much about college football.

    Not quite true.

    Several of them said "Garnet & Gray" because they heard it on ESPN.

    I've always felt the AP poll was a more accurate depiction of college football than the coaches poll. I think the coaches poll is a bunch of crap that should have never been created after the UPI and especially, should have never been made corporate (USA Today). I don't think voting for college football's top teams should be placed on it's own coaches. What the hell do they know besides the teams they see that week or what they read in the paper on Sunday?

    As far as the AP's connection to the BCS. I was under the assumption that the AP has no contract whatsoever and allows the BCS to use it's poll as part of it's system but allowing the AP to crown it's own champion...basically, they can pull out at any given time. Anything the AP publishes, including it's weekly pol,l is their property.

    I would take the word of a bunch of D I-A coaches over the hyped bias of a bunch of media chimps as to how to rack and stack teams...

    that makes sense but I don't think there is anyone more bias than the coaches, themselves.

    a couple of years ago there was a situation where Chaney of Temple couldn't make the pick himself so he asked an assistant to do it..I can't remember who he chose but the team had like a .200 record or something. It was an embarrasment to everyone.
