If there ever was a year where College football needed a playoff format, this could be that year... The BCS is broken.

OK, this thread is officially getting really creepy.

Or would you take those top 16 teams and make the losers keep playing? IE after 1 beats 16 does 16 then get to play 7? The other question is would the money still be there? IE supposedly the big bowls

I agree with this piece 100%.  And another at large bid could potentially replace that conferences champion that backed in by default of another team within their conference being ineligible.   This w

To be fair to the BCS computers, they are not allowed to use several pieces of information that humans have. Given no other info, is it better to be 12-1 with a loss by 1 pt to Al or 12-1 with a 1 pt loss to A&M.; Seems a lot closer when you look at it that way. Now imagine you don't know that one team struggled to beat a crappy team in overtime. If we gave the computers decent inputs they values they spat out would be better.

It would be interesting to see the records of the computers (i.e. take the computer rankings) versus the humans (ap or whatever poll you prefer) and see what one does better at predicating bowl games. I bet the results are really close.

One of the computers that the BCS takes seriously into its equations has Notre Dame as their number one team to end the season.  Holy crap!!  Pretty sure that takes the cake.

That's all.

Your gloating is symptomatic of OSU's issues.

Humility is lacking.

They lost out before the season begun.

They DID NOT QUALIFY.

They BROKE THE RULES.

They were toast before the season began.

They won nothing, not even respect.

When they crawl out from their hole, then they might get respect.

Just like other teams who broke the rules - one must EARN respect.

Yes, but it seems like there could be one extra caveat in there along the lines of " if they have almost identical resumes but one team beats the living crap out of the other then that should be the deciding factor " :)

And all those Big 10 teams lost to an undefeated Big Ten team who did not go 2-5. Granted their former coach and former players did stupid stuff in 2010 and they were not eligible. Hard to say that with Urban Meyer they will not be a quality team capable of matching up with SEC, since his SEC record speaks for itself. But time will tell.

Comparing the big 11 to the SEC is like comparing the houston astros to the yankees.  Ohio St was eligible for nothing so their undefeated record means nothing. Anyone trying to say that they are the only undefeated team is delusional at best.

Not my "heroes." I went to Kent State.

I'm interested in you explaining how the AP is delusional.

Hello boys. Some of y'all might recall that I'm zip's friend. A while back he kept making me read some thread about finding a lost club until I joined up and made a post for reasons still unfathomable to me, as I don't play golf and have no plans to. But, being an Alabama redneck, I can talk about football all damn day. I may have defended him before, but it's a whole new ball game.

Gerald, your Buckeyes indeed won every game they played this year, so one does not have to be "delusional" to believe statistical facts. However, they may have been undefeated in their irrelevant contests this season, but they were BCS ineligible, which means they may as well not exist on planet earth. AP poll? What do you get for a third place finish in the AP? They don't even make a t-shirt for that. And they make a t-shirt for everything. I know a good screen printer with reasonable rates and no minimum, in case you want something done up.

As to the thread in general...the BCS is broken? This is a revelation? It started out broken. As an Auburn fan, I will only bring up the Year of our Lord, Two Thousand and Four. Winning it two years ago does not make up. That's like sending me a cookie cake that says "Sorry About the Herpes." It doesn't stop the pain. So the BCS can bite my figural crank.

But having said all that, I will only add Seven in a row! And Four in a row from the great state of Alabama. War Damn Eagle and Roll Tide Roll. Good luck next year, all you other conferences. You'll need it.

Good day, gentlemen.

Well I look forward to one of my awesome SEC teams playing them in the title game next year. Massacre, and I don't care which one it is. Bama, Georgia, LSU... Nothing thrills my soul so much as the SEC beating the Big 10. It makes me quiver.

    • I changed out the the bag this year going over to Ping from primarily Tayormade clubs. Driver: Ping G-410   12 degree Ping G-410  5wood Ping G-410. 7 wood Ping G410. 5 hybrid Ping G410 5 iron to PW   I was fitted to play Orange dot which is 2 degrees flat for my irons. Playing around with the adjustable driver and metal woods. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
    • It was a new course.  You get a pass.  Next time you need to keep it around 3 hours.  😁😉
    • I totally agree. Tiger brought a game that was head an shoulders above the rest. Primarily he introduced serious workout regimens. He inspired many talented athletes to take up golf. Todays golf is being played seriously worldwide. No longer just a game for the privileged country club players.  
    • Played a new course today.  We had 3 guys shoot in the 90s and 1 shot an 80 and we finished in less than 3.5 hours because we played ready golf.  You can play bad golf quickly.  We had a 2 some in front of us that we never saw after the first hole and had a 2 some behind us that rarely was close to us after the first few holes.
    • I played the Elks Country Club near Portsmouth, OH for the first time today. It's an old Donald Ross design that while it is not kept in destination course condition, it is easily the best course I have played in SE Ohio. It's a low bar, but the economy has forgotten most of the area and it  just can't support high enough greens fees to maintain the course any better.  I paid $30 to ride 18 today at 1PM. My driver miss today was a straight pull, which I prefer over the usual slice that I fight. On the the par 4 #6 I pulled my driver near the #2 tee box, leaving me about 180 yards to the green with a line of trees between me and the green that I was too close to to go over them. For the first time in my life I intentionally hit a fade/slice that traveled parallel to the line of trees before turning right through an opening in the trees and rolling up to about 12 feet from the pin.  I drained the putt for my only birdie of the day.
