    the BCS and going back to the way it used to be. I realize that a playoff would be better, but before the BCS, any of the Top 5 teams had a shot at the title depending upon the way they played in their bowl.

    This year's matchups with the old system.

    Rose- USC vs. Michigan

    Orange- Oklahoma vs Virginia Tech

    Sugar- Auburn vs. Utah

    Cotton (later the Fiesta became more important) Texas vs. Pittsbourgh

    As much as I hate the BCS system, the old way was even worse (just ask Joe Paterno who has 5 undefeated seasons at PSU, but only 2 national titles). I can see why 'bama fans might like it since they won numerous titles under the old system due to Bryant basically being able to choose his opponent in the Sugar Bowl every year. However, those days are long gone.

    As many have stated, once the Presidents are convinced there is more money to be made in a playoff system than the current BCS/bowl system, we will see the change.

    the bcs is a vast improvement over the old "system". it may not be perfect, but i'd cry if they just got rid of it and went back to the old system.... nowadays we'd get screwed to much.

    Without the BCS, OSU in 02 probably wouldnt have gotten a split national title...everyone thought we would never beat Miami, so logic tells me if Cryami would have won their bowl, they would have been crowned National Champs, so let me think about this for a minute.....no I like the BCS.

    Another Moronic thread that has been covered numerous times.

    Are you a fucking retard??? So you would rather have 3 undefeated BCS teams with legitimate gripes and bitches to the title??? I am sure glad that I don't have to hear about how choklahoma deserves the title more than USC or Auburn. Do us a favor and go back to Fucknuts

    There is no easy solution. Neither work. Personally, I think there are several steps that ruin tradition but get us closer to a reasonable solution.

    1. Rework the conferences so that teams with nothing to offer (the Baylors of the NCAA world) are dropped and the up-and-coming mid majors play with the big dogs. This would include all major "BCS" (or whatever we'll call this solution) contenders play in a conference of at least 12 teams with a conference championship.

    2. Regional committees of "experts" will rank these teams and their rankings will constitute as half of the total rank--leaving the biased coaching poll and the unrealistic media poll problems only a quarter of the weight.

    3. Either rid the NCAA of computer rankings or perfect them. College football is about matchups. I believe there is a more accurate way to do computer rankings but can't figure it out. Until someone can, computers can't predict the outcome of matchups.

    There are a lot of things that can be implemented and the new athletic graduation scholarship rules are certainly a step in the right direction. I think the majority feel the current way doesn't work, but we felt that about the previous way. So its back to the drawing board.

    I think a playoff argument that it leaves 9-12 out is ridiculous. But I think a playoff ruins tradition just as much as a conference championship in the Big 10 would. So it will eventually come to a true lesser of evils decision for AD's, conference officials, and the NCAA. Lets just hope they don't sell us out.

    Donny,

    I have come to a point, a fork in the road if you will....

    I am torn between (well not really) my two veins of thought.

    A) You are dumb as a brick

    B) You are the finest angler that the net has ever seen. No where can one person say something and release so much ire, from such a varied audience.

    We should patent donny and sell him to the military as armour, something that dense has to have value.
