BCS Bowls – Day 1

It’s not like ASU did wonderfully against Texas (losing the Holiday Bowl 52-34), but at least they turned up to play somewhat (albeit not in the first quarter). The same can’t be said for Illinois in the Rose Bowl (49-17 to USC) and Hawai’i in the Sugar Bowl (41-10 to Georgia). Clearly neither of the teams deserved a BCS slot and Hawai’i (and Colt Brennan) showed itself to be nowhere near being able to play outside the WAC.

Those BCS games are really working out well – two down, two blowouts. Methinks something is amiss with the system.

    As someone that watched the entire Illinois and USC game, it wasn’t really that bad till after the 4th quarter. The score makes the game look worse than it really was. And basically reflects the lack of experience Illinois had going in.

    As far as the other games, I didn’t watch em, but I would certainly agree the BCS system is pretty crappy. I still fail to see the apprehension of moving to a playoff system.

    Mizzou should have been in a BCS bowl. I imagine that KU will be exposed as well.

    I think the BCS is a lame joke. I have been watching NCAA football almost all my entire life. I know that the BCS wasn’t even in existence till 1998 or thereabouts. I hate the BCS with a passion. I know that is rather harsh to say, but its the way I feel. I feel that the Bowl Games should be left as they were- a small group of bowls..( Cotton, Sugar, Peach, Orange and most definitely THE GRANDDADDY of them all THE ROSE BOWL.) and that is it. Don’t have 39 bowl games that noone cares about!!!! To simplify EVERYTHING… it should be ALL of the conferences in Division 1 AA Football. You should allow taking ALL the conferences, SEC
