The Bowl Championship Series Is A Joke. Declare Your National Champion Here.
Congrats are off to the Boise State Broncos. They went undefeated and in doing so beat fellow unbeaten (up to that time) Texas Christian University. They are the "National Champions". Simply by finishing out their season undefeated, they will be given a crystal football, which will represent them as the national champions of college football. Their undefeated season, which features wins over not one but two conference champions, is one for the record books. They certainly will go down in the history books as one of the best teams of all time.
Its pretty amazing how something as simple as laundry effects who decides is our national champion.
Its truly amazing how such a simple thing as conference affiliation can have such a huge effect on who is decided as the national champion. Honestly, either Alabama or Boise State could legitimately be called national champions. Unfortunately the previous two paragraphs will likely be used (in some variation or another) to describe Alabama as some type of fictional national champion. But really, what more do we know than we did in December?
In early December, we had five undefeated teams. Now, we have two. Did the Bowl Championship Series really solve anything? Obviously not, as we still have two teams who have never lost and have quite impressive resumes which are topped off with BCS wins. This is why college football is a joke and is not a legitimate sport. We have no national champion. I'm sorry, but Alabama fans have no right to celebrate a national championship tonight. Can they legitimately believe they are the best in the country? No, not until they beat the Boise State Broncos. Until then, the 2009-2010 has no national champion and should be celebrated as such (much like last year when many teams had season just as, or more (in Utah's case) impressive seasons than Florida). Let's stop pretending the BCS is legitimate because its not. Its convoluted and quite frankly means just as much as your or my opinion which is why I am declaring Boise State as the Michael K*** National Champions and I hope you also declare you national champion because it also is just as legitimate as the joke of the system we currently have.
