All BCS, All The Time
As you could expect, when it comes to the BCS and its version of Selection Sunday, there is a ton of reaction from the sports blogosphere. Here are a few that caught my eye and do a good job of portraying the madness that went down this past weekend.
- Epic Carnival’s WTC has some really good observations, including thoughts about Pitt’s stunning win over WVU.
- The Georgia Sports blog offers their reaction to the realization UGS, last week’s 4th ranked BCS team (ahead of LSU), wasn’t going to championship game. They also do a good job of illustrating that the BCS does indeed need changes.
Playing the 43rd-strongest schedule in Division I-A – excuse me, the Football Bowl Subdivision – they beat the snot out of several weak opponents, beat an unranked Michigan State team by one score, and lost to Illinois. They never played a team ranked in the top 20 in the country. Their nonconference games were a joke: Washington, the last-place team in the Pac 10; Akron and Kent State, the bottom two teams in the Mid-American Conference’s East Division; and Youngstown State, which I can’t even find on the
Division I-A Football Bowl Subdivision standings page …
- Apparently, not everyone is happy Hawaii made the Sugar Bowl.
Well, that’s plenty of reading material for you this morning and afternoon. Can you feel the BCS love in the air?
