Good or popular?

The Bowl Championship Series is continually criticized for which team doesn’t make the BCS games each year. This year the rules will help one school make it that shouldn’t. The system only allows two teams from each conference to be invited to the BCS competition.

Notre Dame will most likely receive millions of dollars by playing in a BCS contest this year. The 10-2 Irish will compete solely on popularity and not talent. The only two “real” opponents Notre Dame faced this season blasted them by at least 20 points. Michigan won by 26 in the shadow of the golden dome.

Wisconsin and LSU will be left out of the competition because of this rule. These two teams, along with many others, are more talented than the Irish. So, while I think we need a playoff to determine the real Champion, we need to take popularity out of the formula too.
