I love Oklahoma. The state, the university, all of it. That being said, I could not believe it when I saw that Oklahoma was number one in the first BCS rankings. I should be happy about it, but I’m just so bothered by the system that it irritates me to see other good teams get pushed down the line because of a computer.
This isn’t the first time the BSC has worked in OU’s favor. Two years ago it helped send the Sooners to the national championship, despite a loss to Texas. A few years ago, it sent them to the national championship despite a loss in the Big 12 championship game.
It doesn’t make any sense to me that humans can rank teams one way, but a computer, jumbling random statistics and numbers, can override those polls.
I know I am making a much bigger deal about this than I should, considering I am a Sooner fan. I’m sure people in Oregon are way more upset about it than I am. I guess this is just a case of “we can’t win for winning.”
Someone please implement a college playoff system.
