Quick quiz...

What does the problem with the BCS have in common with Soylent Green?

They're both people.

There we go, there's the elephant in the room that no one wants to talk about. The biggest problem with the BCS is the PEOPLE! Not the computers. The people have their biases. The people create the standings momentum wherein teams get rewarded for their preseason ranks. The people have their little ideas about which teams "deserve" to be in the top ten, even with two losses, while one loss teams get to languish. The people are then the ones who get all upset when unbiased machines mess up what they "know" is right.


I really hope that VTech wins this weekend, because that's really going to make things come to a head. That's going to really force the human voters to decide if Texas really deserves to be ranked ahead of a team that has beaten three straight ranked opponents.

Let's see what happens.
