So the BCS unveiled a new formula yesterday for determining a national champion. Instead of wankers (aka reporters from the MSM), they are going to use a consortium of former players, coaches, administrators, and may be a sampling of the media to vote in its new "Harris Interactive College Football" poll. Boy that gives me so much confidence to know stooges like Peter Dalis, Terry Donahue, Bob Davies, R.C. Slocums of the world will determine our national champion. HeismanPundit echoes the same sentiment:
Having worked in college athletics at one time, I can assure you that administrators, coaches and players are maybe the least qualified to know what they are doing when it comes to voting for teams in a poll.
What's more, the BCS will still retain the abysmal computer portion of the standings, which is an average of six computers rankings, only two of which have publicly transparent formulas. One of them is Billingsley, who as we can see by his rankings here is clearly less credible on college football than Barbara Billingsley of 'Leave It To Beaver' fame
There is only one solution: Either go to a playoff or go back to the old system, which more often than not got things right. We certainly can't do any worse than what is currently in place.
