This is for all the whiners who don't have a clue about college football and somehow think the National Championship should be a popularity contest. The two best teams in the nation are playing in the National Championship, and that's how it should be. Period.
A statement with which I tend to wholeheartedly agree, but one that is worthy of discussion. Other sports (and other leagues) make no effort to define it this way. Does anyone think the St. Louis Cardinals were one of the two best teams in baseball this year, for example? Or in how many years has the Super Bowl featured what amounted to #1 vs. #3 or 4 or so? (#2 and #1 having already squared off in a conference championship.)
It's not about who anyone wants to see play, it's about allowing the two best teams at the end of the year deciding it on the field- at the end of the year.
But technically, the BCS system doesn't attempt to match the two best
teams, it matches the two highest-ranked
teams. And since the rankings have a decidedly human component, the who we'd like to see
is already factored in, whether deliberately or subconsciously.
And if you aren't interested in watching LSU and BAMA play again, then you aren't interested in college football.
Well, yes; with this I completely agree. Nothing to add!
