The current college football BCS system brings about a lot of controversy. Many people believe that it should be replaced by a fairer playoffs system. They think that it is not right for coaches and experts to pick the ten teams that go to the BCS championship, out of which there will be two that play for the ultimate title of BCS champion. It seems odd that actual performance does not get you into the BCS Championship. Yes, the ten teams picked are typically the ten best teams but that is still not inherently fair.
After all, how many times have we seen upsets in high school state football and in the NFL. There are more than one occasions where the under dog wins and the team that was fancied by everyone crashes out. It is not uncommon at all, so it really should be a direct results by results basis from which the playoffs are decided in college football. It would work seamlessly and there really is no reason why they cannot implement it.
Yes, all change is difficult and college coaches and teams do not want an upheaval of the current system. However, by creating divisions much like the NFL based on regions, they could easily create a normal league season and then have playoffs at the end of it. There maybe a problem in terms of how many games need to be played, but there are always ways to work around that. No one says it will not be hard and that there will not have to be compromise, but it is the only way for any change to come about. After all, it is hardly fair that college football does not have the fun of a team doing everything it can to beat someone better than them and make the playoffs.
