BCS (Bowl Championship Series)

January 7, 2012

There are lots of reasons not to like the BCS system.  The one demonstrated this year is the idea that the ten best teams should appear in the five bowls.  In other words their mean ranking should be 5.5.  It was 8.7.   The Cotton Bowl did better:  7.0.  Maybe I should be glad that the BCS games have not televised in Canada (at least in a 80 channel cable package).
