We need a national boycott of the BCS by any and ALL non BCS team fans. I for
one will NOT watch any of the games except perhaps the BSU/TCU game.
"MISTER K: Not only that, but the Cougars will be playing Oregon State, one of
the hottest teams in the country and one that came within a touchdown of going
to the Rose Bowl."So if we win it'll be that much sweeter.GO COUGARS!!!!!
people love to complain. This article is a perfect example. I'm guessing if
the BCS national championship game had TCU and Boise State you'd complain that
they put the two in the same game so one would loose? They'd have only one
NON-BCS winner! Give me a break. These two played last year in a competitive
game settled by 1 point! Maybe, just maybe they mean what they say! It's funny
how two non-bcs teams made it and guess what... people still complain! Let's
have a playoff so you can complain about seeding, or the number of teams, or,
TCU and BSU need to throw down the gauntlet and challenge Cincinatti and Florida
to play them instead of each other. Geographically, TCU v. BSU and Cincy v.
Florida makes sense. But the non-AQ conferences are getting robbed of a chance
to prove themselves against the so-called "big boys". Welcome to the Big Chicken
System. Brrrrrrrrrck brrrck brrck brrck! Oh wait I fogrot - the SEC is so good
that their worst team would beat the MWC's best team by 50 points. Right.
Face it: you can never legitimately call someone the "national champion" if you
don't give everyone a shot at the title. You can call them "champion of the BCS
conferences" or "champion of 50% of NCAA Football Division 1 conferences" or
whatever other name you can come up with...but not national champions.It's kind of like baseball; how can you win the "World" series when you don't
play teams from around the "world"?
Put up a consistantly rated team that makes its way up to one of the top two
spots and you to can play in the NC game. Otherwise just whine and complain
about the big bad bullies that wont let you have what they have.Bama
and Texas. The top two ranked teams. Winner takes all. All the rest whine.
The National championship in college football doesn't always produce a true
champion. 19 times there were 2 teams crowned as NC.9 times the NC
was selected while losing their bowl game. In 1984 BYU beats a 6-5
Michigan in the only NC game ever played in december. Major changes followed.In 1997 The AP, which had voted Notre Dame No. 1, took a second vote, giving
the national title to Michigan after its 49-0 win over USC in the Rose Bowl.In 2004 undefeated Auburn and Utah were left out.In 2008 USC, Texas and
Utah were also left out. This got the attention of the US president.In
2009 TCU vs Boise St. to avoid BCS teams losing more credibility.The NCAA
football NC has been a sham from the beginning and still is today.
Your right. Every other sport at every level from 5 year olds to professionals
have it all wrong by having a playoff and deciding a true champ. Tell texas or Bama congrats on being "paper champs".
has once again found a spot in the NC game and once again they will give another
trophy to the SEC so that next year we will once again have a 1, 2, 3 in the
polls be the SEC or Big 12 unless of Course Ohio State or USC are hot.
By putting TCU & Boise together that means that the other 3 BCS games will get
more attention & monies.They don't want 2 non-BCS's teams in 2 BCS's games, they
might beat a Alabama or a Flordia, how would that look for football gods.They
should have put TCU vs Alabama & Boise against Ciny,Texas or Florida.Two wins
for the nons & 2 for the BCS,they don't want nothing to do with that
sirnario.Each BCS bowl pay out is in the millions, they don't want it going to
non BCS's.By putting TCU & Boise in same game it saves there bacon,thats why
it's all rigged,all about the money. Utah was the national champ last year & TCU
this year.Again the BCS got it wrong,at least the bowl monies will get divede up
where they want it keeping TCU & Boise in same game,system works in there book
but not mind, MCJ
The BCS bowl team match-ups aren't what you think.First, yes the top two
rated teams play each other for the BCS Natinal Championship.But the other
bowls get to pick one team, then the next bowl picks, etc. until all BCS bowls
have picked twice.The Fiesta Bowl passed on Iowa and picked TCU. TCU is
higher ranked. By the time they got to pick again Boise St was the only really
god team left.I agree. I won't be watching many bowl games this
year. They are mostly yawners.I am interested in the UofA and
Nebraska game.But then again, the Pac-10 is historically poor in bowl
games. Especially CAL and Oregon.Oregon St/BYU might be
interesting. BYU gets to play a better school this year. The top 4 or 5 PAC-10
schools are pretty equal and beat the snot out of each other this season.Funny... the BCS was suppose to solve the "who's the real national
champion". It has made things worse. Get rid of the BCS and let the bowls pick
the best teams they can get.
Doug, you need to go back to college and take a class in creative writing class
since you are a one trick pony who only knows how to bash the BCS system.
If TCU beats Boise State, they have proved nothing. They were supposed to. Big
deal!If Boise State beats TCU, then the pathetic WAC Champion beat
the lowly MWC Champion. Who cares?The BCU powers played this out
brilliantly. TCU can beat Cincinati, Texas, Florida, and certainly Iowa, and
Oregon. And they get Boise State?!?
Doug will never stop complaining until the Y makes it to the BCS NC game with 2
losses in a season. Tell the Y to start recruiting more African American 4 and 5
star recruits like Texas, Florida and Alabama does.
"In reality, it's a shameless, transparent attempt to avoid a matchup between
college football's upper class and the peasants."THANK YOU for your
proper use of 'transparent.' I'm sick of seeing it used as some sort of synonym
for 'honest.' Thanks,too, for slamming the BCS-ites for their hegemony.
Actually, if I'm reading the BCS selection procedures correctly, the rub is that
the Orange Bowl selected Iowa over both Cincinnati and Boise State, followed by
the Fiesta Bowl picking Boise State over Cincinnati and ending with #3
Cincinnati being the LAST team picked for the BCS bowls by the Sugar Bowl, which
passed on them to take Florida with their replacement pick.
After watching Texas need a bevy of questionable PI calls and a long last second
field goal to put away mighty Nebraska (not to mention they barely beat
Oklahoma), I do not believe they are even close to the second best team in the
nation. The Big 12 is not that great this season and so Texas is probably going
to get smashed by Alabama, but any undefeated team from the SEC or the Big12 is
automatically in the NC game regardless of which patsies they played OOC. After
watching Nebraska's D-line destroy McCoy, what do you think TCU would have done
to him. Boise State and TCU got robbed by this arrangement and everyone knows
it. TCU would have beat any team they played.
What sport in the country year in and year out is ALWAYS connected to the words
"sham", "unfair", "monopoly", "money", "polls", etc. Only BCS football!What sport hires a high priced marketing company to try and mask over
these "words". Only BCS football!When will all this end? In just .
. . one . . . word . . ., "playoff".If we do that, all the other
"words" disappear and are replaced with "fair", "true", "champion", etc. NCAA
should want to do this, but they have sold their souls to the BCS devils.It's up to the fans, arise and revolt!!
of going to BCS. Year after year, BYU has won at least 10 games. This year they
lost only 2 games --one to BCS bowl team, one to FSU.BYU deserves a BCS
game by now.After all, BYU did win a NC in 1984.
Interesting how you stated that the "top two rated teams play each other for the
BCS National Championship..."rather than the two BEST teams play for
the National Championship?If this works so well in football, why
don't we do this in basketball?Your first clue about how messed-up
the BcS is is this:The computers don't even consider margin of
victory in their secret formulas. For the computers, there's absolutely NO
DIFFERENCE between:Alabama beating Florida by 50 points on the
road...and Miami beating Florida by 1 point at home...Why is Texas playing in the NC game when Texas isn't even the best team in
Texas?And before you BCS/Texas elitists get on your high horse:
PROVE that Texas is better than TCU!Any objective observer who's
watched both teams play this season would tell you that TCU would beat the tar
out of Texas.Compare BYU vs Oklahoma, Texas vs Oklahoma, and BYU vs
TCU, and then explain why you think Texas is better than TCU.
I can't believe the amount of complaining about the BCS. They actually get it
right: the best two teams in the country playing for the national title. That
is what it is. Every other BCS game is a large parting gift of millions of
dollars for having a great year.BCS games other than the national
title mean nothing. Just be grateful that two mid majors made it to collect
their $10 million dollars, play a good game if they really care to really play,
and have a nice vacation in a nice warm city.As for the national
title, the best two schools from the best two football conferences are battling
it out for the national title. The BCS works in determining the national
It didn't overshadow the game for me!BYU 26-Utah 23. Scoreboard,
I am with you.Bronco is a much better coach than Kyle.He deserves a
BCS bowl invite just like Lavell deserved the NC in 1984.
I say we should change up the conferences and every school west of the
Mississippi will be in a Western BCS . We will decide by a fair elimination
process and then our western BCS champion will take on the eastern BCS champion
and Citibank,Fed EX and all the others can pay equally both western schools and
eastern schools and then everyone is happy...Goosefraba
The BCS system is in place to avoid having a team like the 1984 Y team win the
NC. No one wants to see a undefeated team struggle to beat a 6-5 team by a score
of 21-17 and call themselves NC. Strength of schedule is a criteria for the
polls due to the 1984 situation also
@SEC HomeThank you for your opinion, because that is all it is, an
opinion. Without a playoff it will always be subjective when determining who
should play for a fictional "National Championship".As your moniker
is "SEC Home" it doesn't surprise me that you think an SEC team should
automatically be included in a fictional "National Championship" game. Enjoy it
while you can pal. The tide is coming in (no pun intended) and the BCS will
eventually be washed away. A 16 team NCAA playoff will happen. The momentum is
too strong to stop now. So enjoy your fictional "National
Championship" this year. There will be precious few BCS champions in the
future. Fortunately for the rest of us, there will be a true NCAA National
You make the correct point with your idiotic comment SEC Home. You are only
assuming that Texas is one of the best two teams in the country. How can you
know for sure? Your comment only confirms the travesty of this system. NOBODY
KNOWS, until you play the game!!!!!
Scoreboard?Utah 2 BCSBYU 0 and still chasing
Funny how the Citibank ad pops up right in the middle of the article. Great
Two things:1)Trying to figure out if SEC Home 7:17am really belives
the nonsense he's spouting or if he also believe Brian David Mitchell is
incompetent to stand trial.2)I wonder if the Nebraska kicker has any
idea of the angst he's created with then non-BCS conferences and fans and in
creating a faux "championship game"...
Had a 2 game series with Texas for the 2008-09 season. WHO backed out. UTAH. So
don't tell be no one will schedule MWC conference opponents. UTAH would have
been drilled by Texas last year or any year. PERIOD.
Doug, your comment "and you thought Max Hall hated Utah" is further proof that
Utes appear unwilling to rise above the gutter and show the Y what class is. I just did a quick survey here in my office. The only fans who "love"
Utah were the two Auburn fans and one Tennessee fan. The remaining fans (all
with Crimson banners hanging on their door, or office wall) congratulate the
Utes for a game well played. None of the fans questioned "hate" Utah (as your
statement implies).Why don't you use your position of influence to
help quell the over-the-top savagery that the BYU-Utah game has become, instead
of putting on your red sweatshirt and fanning the flames.Shame on
Seriously you couldn't be more wrong. Look, the truth is TCU would roll, Texas
or Bama. You know the BCS isn't fair. So stop living a lie, and stop tell us
that the MWC and the WAC should be greatful for even getting into the BCS. Both
teams deserved rightfully to play in the BCS and TCU should be playing in the
National Title game. The BCS is a fraud and you know it.
Kyle Whittingham Coach of the year 2008 in 2/3 polls. The Other , Nick Saban who
was throttled by Coach Kyles Utes in the Sugar Bowl. Bronko hasn't
even sniffed a BCS bowl and has not put a muzzle or shown any concern about a
loud mouthed player that is a black eye for the entire church.
to find an answer as to why someone like sec home would say that the 2 best
teams are picked correctly. hmm I am think we shouldn't even play football. We
allready know who the best conferences are and the best teams. It's all on
paper. WOW the last time I checked the only way you can determine if a team is a
champion you let them play the game. Look at March madness probably the most
watched sport during that time frame. Don't know the numbers so pardon my lack
of knowledge but it certainly draws a crowd and makes a lot of money. And
imagine that they don't use paper (or computers) to decide the NC. People that
make comments about those whiners whining about the BCS, probably never played
the game or even understand what being part of a football team is like. Their
just happy their team is there unfairly. I myself are skiping all the BCS Games
this year. Might as well sick of the only drama being which team gets snubed
The big conferences have somehow convinced everyone they play superior football
and if they play Boise or TCU that myth will be busted!!!
SEC Home, are you delusional? You need to get Goldberg to check you out.
Everyone need to quit grousing about the Fiesta Bowl and recognize it as the
Non-BCS National Championship Game! BCS has their championship game between the
best of their conferences, and have made every effort to keep non BCS
conferences out. But now they've put the two Non BCS undefeateds in the same
bowl game, and the press is proclaiming TCU and BSU capable of beating every
other team in the nation (See Predictions 101 on NBC Sports), so it must mean
the Fiesta Bowl is a Championship Game! Let's promote it as such and make it
You obviously are blinded by your power happy conference. Yes, the SEC is the
best conference, but there are teams who deserve a shot at the NC. You are as
naive as your BCS friends. The two best teams may be playing, but you don't
really know because there is no playoff. Did you forget Utah creamed 'Bama last
year. You so called elite people have excuses everytime. I guarantee BSU and TCU
could compete with Bama and Texas. Rankings are based on biased humans and
computers, not truly by play on the field. Please do explain how BCS system is
better than a playoff?
The truth is the SEC, The ACC, The Big 12, The Big East, and The Big 10 don't
want the smaller schools like TCU and BSU to roll them and expose them for not
being as great as everyone thinks they are, like Utah did to Bama last year. So
the BCS just lets TCU and BSU beat up on each other, and then tell us that we
should be happy that they even let both teams in. Its wrong, and if you Bama and
Texas fans think your teams really desrve that title and the other unbeaten
teams don't. Well you're just living a lie. enjoy.
I would like to get some cheese from somewhere to go with all of the whining
from the state of Utah, especially Deseret News "reporters". I'm sure the
Fiesta is willing to lose all sorts of money just to prevent a non BCS school
from beating a BCS school. Don't you see that flies in the face of your main
argument.....that it is all about making money? Would the Fiesta Bowl lose
money and still try to make money? Pretty illogical, right? Boise and TCU was
the best matchup they could put together to MAKE MONEY. PERIOD. END OF STORY.
And oh yeah, I like cheddar.
Good call, since your tide pools got crushed by Utah last year, why not let you
play for the asterisk championship this year. We will never know how good the
SEC really is because you never play anyone else...AND you never travel to the
west coast. I wonder why?If you are really that good, take your
game on the road and play out west...what's the matter, too scared?
If we concentrate on just one sponsor, then maybe we can make a statement. I
think we can boycott Tostitos. There are plenty of other chips out there. Pass
the word along: boycott Tostitos.
The problem with your argument is that the two best schools are NOT playing.
Alabama, arguably, deserves to be there, but Texas is not one of the two best
schools in the country...they're not even the best school in Texas. Prove otherwise.You can't.A playoff is the only answer
to this mess.
How is the BCS unfair?Utah (twice), Boise (twice), Hawaii, & now TCU
have all met whatever caveats placed before them.The thing about the
BCS that is 143% bogus are the "exceptions" for Notre Dame (Where's Robert
Langdon when you REALLY need him?). The fighting Irish never have
cracked the BCS & probably never will.
Roll Tide/Rise and Shout/Go Utes | 8:42 a.m. Dec. 9, 2009 Doug, your
comment "and you thought Max Hall hated Utah" is further proof that Utes appear
unwilling to rise above the gutter and show the Y what class is.--------"Utes are unwilling to rise above the gutter"?WOW and I thought it was only Max Hall who hated Utah. It seems its the
entire Zoob Nation.
Why is everybody so sure that TCU is right up there with the best teams?
They're good, but what makes them that good? Do they have a signature win? A
3-9 Virginia team and an 8-5 Clemson team? Come on! To say that TCU adn Boise
ST are entitled to a shot at the championship game is to say that two runners
wtih the same time both deserve the gold medal, even if one guy is running on a
downward slope. You can't compare them so stop trying.
I can't wait to see all of your responses when Boise State beats TCU.I agree it would have been better for the non-BCS teams if Boise State and TCU
where not playing each other, but I think the Boise State/TCU game is going to
be a very good/enjoyable one.
TCU dominated both Utah and BYU, both ranked teams.Utah worked over
#1 Alabama last year in the Sugar bowl. Utah almost beat #7 Oregon this year.TCU belongs. They should be in the Sugar, if not the title game. Boise
should be playing Florida in the Fiesta.
I haven't forgotten BYU's win over the UTEs - brings a smile to my face every
time I think about it.BSU could beat TCU. BSU has a great
quarterback and a good team. BSU isn't as good as last year and TCU is better.
TCU beat BSU last year and the score was closer than the game. BSU had better
Only one game matters...the championship game! All the other bowls are just
post season scrimmages. They don't matter at all. The NCAA has a tournament
system for every sport except football. All sports and teams play by the same
rules except football. Every conference should have champion, every champion
plays in a playoff system for the national title. Conferences like Conference
USA, the WAC, Sunbelt, Mid Amrica and all the other wanna be division one
conferences should have their own playoff system. There needs to be another
division for the smallers programs that are currently clogging up the system.
SEC, ACC, Big 12, Pac-10, Big East, Big 10, and Mountain West should play for
the top division. 8 Conference champs, 3 playoff games and one ligitimate
national champion! And Notre Dame has to join a conference!
"The fighting Irish never have cracked the BCS & probably never will."Ummm....actually they already have played in BCS bowl games. Twice. And lost
both of them.
A football playoff would be the most effective way to establish a legitimate
national champion and end all of the contention (BUT THAT WOULD MAKE TOO MUCH
SINCE). A Playoff system is in place in Div 1-A, Div II, and Div III. The NCAA
Division II playoff bracket consists of 32 teams and NCAA Division I could and
should do the same thing.
...utah has played in 2 BCS bowl games and Kyle was named coach of the year. Oh
dear oh dear what are we as BYU fans to do??? How can we possibly withstand this
onslaught of greatness from the little brothers up North? All we
have is that we've beaten utah 3 of the last 4 times, we made Kyle get all
depressed and cry after the rivalry game this year, we've had four seasons in a
row of 10+ wins, a NC, a Heisman, a Doak Walker, more conference championships
than utah, etc etc. Woe is us.One NC = 1,000 BCS bowl games that are
not for the NC. A BCS bowl game that is not for the title is just another bowl
game only with a bigger pay out. Unfortunately, that point is being driven home
in spades with the TCU/BSU matchup.Gee utah fans, how does it feel
to have been undefeated twice and never won a national championship? BYU did it
on their very first try.

Its understandable that Utah sportwriters get jacked up about this. If BYU and
Utah can get on the inside, then their programs will become more valuable, then
covering the more valuable sports programs might become more valuable, and then
Doug Robinson could get a better yearly raise.The outsiders want to
change the rules until they get on the inside. They are not really after
perfect peace and harmony and unity and equality. If a playoff was enacted to
give access to the non-AQ's, will the MWC, WAC, Sun-Belt, etc. going then jump
up and down to let more outsiders join D-1 so they have to split their money up
further?I doubt it.
Hey, to you Ute fools who mock (but shall mourn) about BYU rushing the field
after beating you on an awesome play, here is what ESPN said about the game,
naming it the MWC game of the year (oh yeah they also mention Hall's stupid
comments after the game):"Game of the Year: BYU 26, Utah 23 OT, Nov.
28 Even though there was no championship on the line, BYU and Utah
fought like there was and created one of the best games of the season. BYU
quarterback Max Hall found tight end Andrew George for the game-winning
touchdown in overtime, but Hall’s post game comments about Utah will
probably be what folks remember most about the game."Note: I don't
think all Ute fans are fools, like Hall. Only the foolish ones who make stupid
comments or do stupid things are fools. Most Ute fans I know personally are
awesome people. Also, the BYU-Utah game is probably almost always the MWC game
of the year. So it is ALWAYS the most important game to win for EITHER school.
"One NC = 1,000 BCS bowl games that are not for the NC."Ummmmm. . .
. just wanted to point out that there was NO NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP GAME PLAYED
IN 1984!Does your equation refer to pre or post BCS national
championship games? Are you referring to the monetary value of the bowl game the
TDS played in 1984 vs. the payout of the Fiesta Bowl (2004) or Sugar Bowl
(2008)? (even in 1984 dollars) A little explanation would clear up a lot of
Here's an interesting thought I had...Yeah, it sounds stupid but the
Government might have to bail the BCS out of itself before it fails. Well, we
didn't expect to see so many banks fail either. The BCS has been rewritten and
amended just about every year it has existed. The committees in congress have
already been looking over legislation for a long time about this before what
happened today. The Government may get controlled somehow by the greedy powers
out there and the BCS won't be allowed to fail. I hate this but it's probably
true. This is a poor analogy but when we realize that many of the BCS dollars
come indirectly from the taxpayer (it's a stretch so I use the word indirectly),
it works. Will truth and justice prevail? Or will the BCS survive and get
worse while the noise against it gets louder? Just as our
Government used to serve a purpose and be credible, the college football
postseason used to actually prove something. Now, both are all about shady
I can see how LDS at BYU feel a little snubbed and unable to benefit like the
BCS teams in the cash distribution. Life isn't always fair. Students who don't
go to BYU pay tithes but have to turn around and pay high tuition at other
schools not subsidized by tithing funds. It all works out in the wash.
you ask "Gee utah fans, how does it feel to have been undefeated twice and never
won a national championship?"I answer: 2 undefeated seasons in 5
years feels great! No college team has ever 'won' a national championship.
Some teams have been awarded one, some haven't. Undefeated twice in 5 years
What is the problem? TCU got in a BCS bowl game, now thats not good enough. They
need to play for the NC, why? did they go through an 8 game SEC or Big 12
schedule. No! What makes them so worthy because Utah beat BAMA last year that u
guys keep talking about like its was the greatest win in history of football. It
was a good win (which helped the Tide more than anything)So u guys want a 16
team playoff. What if TCU was 17th, then u guys would whine it was another
conspiracy against the MWC. It's always going to be something if u don't get in.

I agree...after several 10-win seasons, Bronco and BYU should be invited to BCS
just as Lavel and BYU was given NC after winning WAC and going to Holiday Bowl
year after year.Not fair. Bronco is a better coach than Kyle. He won
more gamesin 5 years.
You got it right, Doug. TCU vs. Boise State doesn't allow the non-BCS teams to
prove that they can whip the BCS teams, so we're stuck with arguing about it.Here's my top 6: 1. TCU 2. Alabama 3. Florida 4. Boise State 5. Cincinnati 6.
TexasBecause my #1 (TCU) is playing #4 in the Fiesta Bowl, I will
look at TCU as the national champion, unless they lose. The offenses
in the Texas-Nebraska game looked like two teams playing their first game of the
year. I think that TCU, Utah, BYU and Air Force would have beaten Texas and
Nebraska on Saturday night.
To: Mr. Complain of 10:19 Dec 8: You bet we are going to complain! Those of us in the non-BCS conferences want TWO opportunities to beat up
on a BCS school in a quality BCS bowl game! We don't want to beat up on each
other because that doesn't prove anything to the BCS about belonging with "the
big boys". Many of us feel that TCU could beat ANY of the BCS teams
this year so we should have the opportunity to do just that!All we
really want is a fair chance to have a playoff and decide who is best on the
field. Is that too much to ask?!! Or at least let the best undefeated non-BCS
team play the best BCS team for the championship...plain and simple! Why do
computers have to decide this crap? So, those that believe like you
do have their head in the sand!
How many Utah quarter backs have one a super bowl ring as a starter? Buller,
I have a BS rom BYU and a MA from Texas. So, I am thrilled that Texas is in the
BCS championship game. Are they the best...or were they just dang lucky? (I lean
toward luck.) TCU and Boise State got the shaft! But Doug Robinson has hit the $
on the head. It's all about the greedy BCS folks not wanting rain on their
parade. I currently live in Ohio and can tell you that Ohio State wants nothing
to do with a playoff system. They are a BCS darling. Why would they want to
change?If the Mountain West was a BCS conference, this board would
be a lot quieter.All that said, I am 100% in favor of a playoff system
that would crown a legitimate champion every year!
Hail the Golden Domes. They are one of the few teams that have a worse bowl
record than BYU. Go Cougs.
We need to hear more often from Mr. K. He tells it like it is.
re: Non-BCS Championship--Great idea! Only don't call it that...
Call theirs the Eastern Championship, and call ours the Western Championship.
We can't change things by whining, but we can refuse to play the semantic game,
as many others here have suggested. We can just stop using the term BCS and
refer to it as eastern, then strengthen our own bowl system, and in time they
may be begging to play us. In other words, Ignore the BCS. There
is no national champion until there is no more than one undefeated team.
Ok so all of you that think Boise State really has a right to play in any BCS
bowl game you are crazy. If Utah of any other team played there schedule they
would be 12-0 too I mean comon they play UC Davis for crying out loud. That is
not a real schedule at all. And all of this BCS talk started really getting
attention last year when Utah was the only 12-0 team and what did we get the
Sugar Bowl. There needs to be a playoff system and until they is there will not
be a true national champion. I 100% agree with this article and as a Utah fan I
hope TCU wins so the MWC will get some more respect. Oh ya and Coach Wittingham
is the best coach in the MWC no question.
