Pay no attention to these BCS standings

This is to tell the college football world to not panic about the initial standings. The debate rages, which is a fine distraction from looking at the inherent foolishness of determining a championship matchup – let alone revenue shares, conference power and recruiting might – based on the silly BCS standards.

Mostly it’s not to fall for the drivel about the importance of each game unless you know of another “playoff system” where losing by four touchdowns is cause for immediate advancement to the title game.

The BCS isn’t big on math, science or logic. It really isn’t big on history. It would rather forget previous disasters and count on broadcast partners to trot out the same tired public relations spin.
