College Bowl Season

Any one else enjoying the college bowl season? I know a lot of you want a playoff system, but for the most part, these bowl games don’t disappoint. The Stanford-Oklahoma State was a classic. If you saw Michigan State – Georgia, it was a great game; very exciting. Wisconsin – Oregon went down to the bitter end. The Sugar Bowl last night, I wanted to comment on that game but I didn’t have time to pull out the laptop. Especially the fact that Virginia Tech had that game stolen from them. I guess the Big 10 was destined to win a BCS game eventually.

Many of us want a playoff system. While true a playoff system would make things easier (in theory), the current system really does work. There’s no doubt the best two teams in the country will play in the BCS title game. Besides, there is a playoff system…it’s called the regular season. Teams that perennially play a soft schedule are going to take a loss at some point. If a team can navigate its schedule through a major conference, then come out on top in a bowl game, they should be given some credit.

If there’s a playoff, these great post season games will just be seen as matchups of losers. These are teams that had great seasons.

Frankly, I didn’t want to see LSU get upset and knocked out of the BCS title game. That would have simply meant the best team in the country lost a game.

Here’s something else: I STILL would consider LSU the national champion, even if they lost to Alabama in this game. They already beat Alabama, on the road. If the regular season really has the meaning we believe it should, there’s no way they should have to play them again.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
