Frank DeFord of Sports Illustrated has written a good article
about the systemic unfairness of the BCS. It is amazing how the defenders of the BCS do not recognize it as the cartel that it is. One would think that any argument along the lines of "well, team [Fill-in a non-BCS school] couldn't play with the likes of [Fill-in a BCS school]" would be thoroughly trounced by now by the likes of Boise State, BYU and Utah. The ONLY fair and logical way to determine a champion is with play on the field.
