BCS -1

If you're like me and love college football to the extreme, you're well aware of the issues surrounding the BCS system. Recently, a proposal for a +1 system was once again rejected.

It's commonly known that the PAC-10 and BIG-10 conferences benefit big time from the current BCS system. They were absolutely overwhelmed with joy that the lopsided USC-Illinois matchup could take place last year. But it got me thinking. If so many people hate it, why is it making so much money? It seems that capitalism should apply in the situation, but it isn't. Or, there's a harsher truth at hand: that maybe too many people like it?

Well, I hate it. Long live southern football culture!
