Boycott The Bowls And Demand College Football Playoffs!

It is darn well time that American college football fans start demanding the end of this ridiculous BCS system and start insisting on a college football playoff system for Division 1.

It is time to boycott the bowls.

When attendance and viewership drop off sharply, perhaps then the major college football programs will realize that American college football fans are sick and tired of the annual "BCS Mess".

The only good thing that is going to come out of this current Texas/Oklahoma travesty is that it will draw attention to how horrible the BCS is.

Texas and Oklahoma had identical records and Oklahoma lost to Texas on a neutral field. Texas also had a tougher schedule.

But now Oklahoma jumps over Texas when they both won their last game?

But the even more ridiculous result in this current college football season is this - there are 4 undefeated teams currently and THREE of them have absolutely ZERO chance of even getting into the national championship game.

How would you like to win all of your games and never have a chance to even play for the title?

How fair is that?

How long are we going to allow computers and polls to pick a champion?

Each year there is a BCS mess and each year it makes most of us increasingly sicker and more disgusted.

And how hard would it be to implement a playoff system?

An 8 team playoff would mean that 2 teams play one more game per year than they would normally, and 2 teams would play two extra games.

Other divisions in college football have a playoff system, so why not Division 1?

The truth is that it is time for the college football championship to be decided on the field and not in a computer.

So we need to start demanding a playoff system by using our boycott power.

If nobody watched the bowl games and nobody attended them then the powers that be would be forced into a change.

So perhaps it is time to send a message.

No more BCS!

We want a change.

  1. Amen! The BCS is a joke, a very bad joke. Man-made is never as good as the real thing.

    Remember Villanova beating Georgtown in 1985 for NCAA basketball championship? That was one of the most memorable games ever, because David beat Goliath. What about Texas Western in 1965? Marquette in 1977?

    You will never have David vs. Goliath in a BCS championship game. No Cinderellas.

    Remember how dominant UNLV's basketball team was in 1990? Can you imagine UNLV going to a BCS championship game? It will never happen.

    I wonder how many undefeated college football teams were denied playing in a championship game because they were in a weak conference. Some of these teams were legit.

    That's why you see so many dominant NFL players who were unheard of in college.
