  •  good try (none)
    Yeah, it's got to sting for those in fraternity row at LSU that their BCS championship is down the memory hole.  But USC's "threepeat" is real - for as long as I've been following college football it's always been the AP title that mattered - and USC is going for three in a row.

    Besides, USC would have stomped LSU just like they did all the others.

    Just like they will with Texas.

    45-21, USC.

    •  if there were an NCAA playoff system (none)
      and the 7 & 8 seeds (in an 8 team bracket) played for the crown, would you still pick the AP poll winner?

      The BCS system was put in place to pick a national champion, and as much as everyone hates it (myself included), it's the only system that does this.  It's like the electoral college versus the popular vote, it's the system we were given and we have to abide by the results, until we change it.  (And yes, this is a lame political argument in an attempt to make my diary somewhat political so I don't feel too badly about a cheap football open thread).

      The way that can be known is not the way.
