Five burning questions about the BCS and the “Bowl Bidness”

Based on the responses on yesterday’s blog, you obviously have a lot of questions/criticisms about the BCS and its selection process. You’re not going to like all of the information and answers I’m about to share with you but here, as a public service, are five burning questions and some (hopefully) candid answers about what I affectionately call “The Bowl Bidness.”

1. Why can’t the BCS give us better matchups? It’s not their job. Seriously, it’s not. The BCS was created to do one thing and one thing only and that was to match No. 1 versus No. 2. The people who created the BCS never promised that we would agree on who No. 1 and No. 2 were. They never even promised that they would actually be the best two teams in the country. They never promised that we would never again have a split national championship, which we may have this season.
