How Many First-Place AP Votes Will TCU Get? Not That Many...

And so, the 2010-2011 college football season comes to an end. Despite what Bill Hancock will surely tell you on Tuesday, the BCS did not "work." Here we are with an undefeated Auburn and an undefeated TCU at the end of the season, unable to take to the field and settle things like any sane sport would have them do.

You can argue whether or not TCU could beat Auburn all day because we'll never know. Auburn will be named the BCS National Champion and that will be that.

Or will it? What about the Associated Press? Last bastions of integrity, honesty and objectivity...surely if anyone will take a stand to right the egregious wrong that is the BCS, it's these muck-racking journalists. Right?

Eh...probably not.

And you can't really blame them. There's just not enough incentive to vote for TCU unfortunately. Furthermore, not enough compelling data to prove they were the best team. Say what you will of Auburn's boring win, they did beat a better opponent.

So far, I've seen a handful of AP voters proclaim their ballots and only one was even considering placing TCU at No. 1. Even then, it had more to do with how bad Auburn looked compared to how good TCU did.

The entire reason the AP got out of the BCS business is because they're here to report the news, not make it. It's going to take someone else to fix this broken system.
