After 16 years of the Bowl Championship Series and its oft debated, oft controversial ranking system – a combination of both human input and computer indexes – there’s no controversy for the closeout.
As Dennis Dodd, a senior college football columnist with CBSSports.com wrote, “Feel good, BCS. You’re going into retirement with your computer indexes held high. You got it right. Better yet, it was clean, no controversy. It was that way the majority of times these past 16 years, we just don’t remember.”
After this year, college football will end with a four team playoff. The idea is that a one-and-done will remove controversy surrounding who gets into the BCS final and who doesn’t – forcing the country’s top teams to prove their place.
The BCS though, has served the Southeastern Conference well. There’s been no denying the dominance of the SEC – with LSU, Florida, Auburn and Alabama all winning at least one title in the last decade. Alabama has three.
