wow I couldn't agree more with the statements in this thread. Not only is the BCS system a complete joke, but I also didn't go to a big time school and only casually care if BC wins or not. It's fun to watch the up-and-coming talents, especially when we have such a high pick in the draft, but I find the level of play and flow of the games to be boring about 95% of the time and couldn't care less about rivalries amongst teams whose fan bases largely didn't even go to the colleges they root for. In fact, I've never really understood the level of infatuation this country has with college football. It's like watching a crappier version of the NFL with no clear winner and a ton of one-sided boring, pound-the-run and then lob the ball up for a jump ball type games. At least college basketball is exciting in about 60% of the games, and has a great tournament at the end of the season.
