Which div 1-a college football teams should be allowed to play for the championship (whatever that is)?

 

November 23, 2011

 

I hate to keep harping on this but the BCS (Broken, Corrupt, Scandalous) is just as disgusting an institution as anything we see coming out of Washington D.C.

 

During college football broadcasts, we see public service announcements extolling the virtues of the two schools playing in that game.  We have Nobel Prize winners, Rhode Scholars, astronauts, senators, presidents, inventors etc.  We have 120 div 1-a football schools claiming to be the ultimate Boy Scout (trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, reverent).

 

However, how many schools have we seen become involved in scandals over the years?  Penn State, Ohio State, Michigan (all in the Big Ten), USC, Alabama, and SMU…the list goes on forever.

 

Urban Meyer jumps from Bowling Green to Utah to Florida to potentially Ohio State.  Do you think he will ever get votes as coach of the year from the schools he left?

 

Nick Saban jumps from Toledo to Michigan State to Louisiana State to the Miami Dolphins to Alabama.  Do you think the people in South Florida want him retiring there?

 

Bobby Petrino jumps from Louisville to the Atlanta Falcons to Arkansas.  The only way Bobby Petrino can ever step foot in the city of Atlanta again is if Hank Aaron is standing by his side.

 

There are others to be sure, yet a kid tries to sell his jersey for a couple of bucks and he is banned from the school forever, even though he helped put millions of dollars in the bank account of the athletic department and the school.

 

If div 1-a college football really wanted to teach young people about fair play, why are the following eight schools allowed to schedule eight home games over the course of a twelve game regular season?  Please note the SEC, Big Ten and Big Twelve are the biggest offenders.

 

  1. Georgia                                    sec east
  2. South            Carolina                      sec east
  3. Tennessee                               sec east
  4. Baylor                                      big twelve
  5. Texas            A&M                           big twelve
  6. Michigan                                  big ten legends
  7. Illinois                                       big ten leaders
  8. Pittsburgh                                 big east

 

 

If div 1-a college football really wanted to teach young people about fair play why are these additional forty-seven schools allowed to schedule seven home games over the course of a twelve game regular season?  In the Big Ten, only Indiana and Northwestern play less than seven home games.

In addition, the following 93 div 1-a schools scheduled 97 games against a div 1-aa opponent (some div 1-a schools played two div 1-aa opponents) yet the div 1-a school is not penalized playing a supposed lesser opponent.  Air Force, Eastern Michigan, North Carolina State and Wyoming scheduled two div 1-aa opponents.

After you sort out all the schedule manipulation, only twenty of the 120 div 1-a football schools should be allowed to play for the championship.  Each of these schools scheduled six of fewer home games and did NOT schedule a div 1-aa opponent. 

 

Any team, which schedules more than six home games in a twelve game regular season, is gaining an unfair advantage.

 

Any div 1-a team, which schedules one or more div 1-aa opponents in the twelve game regular season is gaining an unfair advantage.

 

In both of these situations, the div 1-a team should incur a penalty.  That penalty should be the forfeiture to play in the championship game.  Of course, given the fact that the BCS is broken, corrupt and scandalous, it always comes down to who lines whose pocket with the most money.
