BCS Vs Boise State
BCS or the Bowl Championship Series is a system of live polls and a computer generated system to help determine college footballs national champion. It was put into place during the 1998 season to help determine the major bowl games played after the new year. They are called the big four and they are Rose Bowl, Sugar Bowl, Fiesta Bowl and Orange Bowl. The system is flawed because it uses a very complex computer system and only uses parts of the Associated Press polls to determine the National Title game. Since the 1998 season the system has had both 1 and 2 play against each other according to the BCS Polls. There have have only 9 times where the AP 1 and 2 have played against each other. The problem lies in that a small school known as Boise State. They have been known as the major under dog in the college football world. They are currently the 3rd ranked team in the country. They won last year in the Fiesta Bowl against TCU. They are also known for the 2007 Sugar Bowl against Oklahoma when they beat them 43-42 in overtime. The kid on that Boise State team purposed to his girlfriend on the field after the game was over. She was also a Boise State cheerleader. Americans love to hear about underdog stories. This squad is known for perfect seasons and beating nationally known college programs. The BCS is flawed in this case because most years the title game has some kind of flaw in it. Look at the last Florida national title that they won. They had to play the lowly sooners in that game when it should have been against Texas. For once, if they go undefeated, let these kids play in the biggest game of the year.
