BCS Continues To Strike Back

On the heels of joining Twitter and hiring Ari Fleischer, the BCS continues its counterattack by launching PlayoffProblem.com, where many of your stupid arguments in favor of a traditional postseason bracket are swiftly shot down. Observe:

Just try to create an eight-team playoff based on latest rankings (November 23rd). Should a one-loss Georgia Tech (10-1, #7) get in but not a one-loss Pittsburgh (9-1 #9)? Should a two-loss Oregon (9-2, #8) get in but not one-loss Pittsburgh or any of the SEVEN teams with two losses: Ohio State (10-2, #10), Iowa (10-2, #11), Oklahoma State (9-2, #12), Penn State (10-2, #13), BYU (9-2, #19), Utah, (9-2, #19), or Houston (9-2, #23)? If you think the BCS is controversial, try sorting that out. A playoff would guarantee bigger problems, more controversy, more disappointed teams and more frustrated fans.

Sure, there will be snubs regardless of the format — as there currently is with the BCS and would be with a playoff. But to argue that fans, in general, would be more frustrated by a playoff is insanity. That’s like saying fans would rather the NCAA skip that whole, boring March Madness thing and just let the two hoops teams ranked 1 and 2 at the end of the season play in the championship game.
