It’s just for fun, but one of the things I like to do right after the first BCS Standings are released is look for what I call “Doomsday Scenarios.” Those are potential outcomes that will drive the powers that be in college football, or at least some of them, absolutely crazy and spark cries for change in the post-season format for Division I-A football.
Here are some former Doomsday Scenarios that came true:
2000: Miami beats Florida State head to head during the regular season but finishes third behind the Seminoles in the final BCS Standings and gets shut out of the game. Florida State loses to Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl
2001: Nebraska played for the BCS championship but didn’t even win the Big 12. The Cornhuskers were embarrassed by Miami in the Rose Bowl.
