Florida State Seminoles & the Final BCS National Championship Game – NCAA College FootballTuesday, January 7, 2014 20:58
Final thought on the 2013 NCAA college football season.
Bye, Bye Miss BCS Pie
So the 2013 NCAA college football season is finally over, and more importantly, so is the Bowl Corruption Series–er, I mean Bowl Championship Series–era in college football. The four-team playoff to start next season may not be ideal, but it is a big step in the right direction.
Whatever else you can say about the BCS, last night’s BCS National Championship game was an instant classic. The fourth quarter alone was one for the ages.
The Florida State Seminoles victory saves us, at least for a little while, from having to listen to all those SEC blowhards claiming how much better their conference is than anybody else. But does dominating a system as corrupt as the BCS truly state anything about a group’s actual quality–or just, at best, how that system has been designed to benefit said group or, at worst, how corrupt that group is itself.
As questionable a format as the BCS has been in naming a college football champion, Florida State can hold its head high as being a legit national champion. The Seminoles did the one thing that guarantees a team a bonafide claim to the title–completed an undefeated season when no other team did so.
Does being undefeated equate to being the best team? Of course not. But neither does a national championship, even in a playoff scenario. Championships have never equated to being the best, just accomplishments. All one can ask of a team in college football, as it currently stands, is to go undefeated. When no one else does that…that team deserves to be champion.
Looking forward to that playoff.
