BCS: Bad College Stats

by Joy Donovan on December 4, 2011

This year, the BCS trophy should go to Oklahoma State University or Louisiana State University. No do-overs, Alabama.

I was Sooner born and Sooner bred. And when I die I’ll be Sooner dead.

Got it? I’m not Oklahoma State University fan. To quote the Boz, orange makes me puke. So here’s a stab at me being objective.

I have to go on record saying this BCS bowl shenanigans is messed up (www.bscfootball.org). OSU beat my beloved Sooners in a game that I’d just soon forget. They won, and some might even say they killed us. Whatever. The OSU Cowboys made their point that, at least this year, they are a force to be reckoned with. I hate to admit it, but that’s the truth.

Louisiana State University likewise has shown some might on the gridiron, and LSU deserves to be playing in that championship title game Jan. 9 in New Orleans. What isn’t right that the University of Alabama will be playing there, too. That’s just plain stupid.

The championship match-up should be between LSU and OSU.

Here’s why:

  • Alabama didn’t even win its conference
  • Alabama already lost to LSU
  • The SEC is NOT the only strong football conference
  • OSU beat three teams ranked in the top 15; ‘Bama only one
  • OSU won its conference

For years I’ve just shrugged my shoulders while others complained about the BCS system. Now, I see how ridiculous it can be. It wasn’t even my Sooners who made me see it; it was those blasted orange Cowboys.

You’re welcome, OSU.
