Do you think the BCS is taking notice?

The Super Bowl is now set. NFC champs vs. AFC champs. It's been that way since the late 60s and Super Bowl I.

You'd think that it'd always be the same teams, what with only 16 teams in each conference. And that number was even less back during the first Super Bowl. Yet, this is only the 3rd time in its 46 year history that two teams will face off in a rematch of a previous Super Bowl.

Only 32 teams and 3 Super Bowl rematches.

And think about this: one of the teams that was unanimously "the best team" isn't one of the ones playing in it. One of the teams that wasn't even in the top 2 of their conference is.

Of course, the NFL regular season is "unexciting". The playoffs take away from the regular season. It has to suffer in ratings, right? Der, umm, uh... wait. The NFL still gets higher ratings in the regular season than college football.

Ahhh, but the bowl games are more exciting. More people watch the BCS national championship game than the Super Bowl, right?

Ha ha ha ha, sorry I even typed that. It was pretty funny to read, though. Actually, the LSU/Alabama title game was the lowest rated BCS title game since 2005. This year's Orange Bowl was the lowest since 1993, the Sugar Bowl saw it's lowest ratings since 1995 and the Oregon/Wisconsin Rose Bowl matchup... yep, you guessed it. Lowest EVER! (Check it for yourself here)

Overall, this year's BCS bowl ratings were the lowest in its history.

So what is the BCS doing wrong exactly? Hmmm, I wonder.

I'm also wondering if they (Bill Hancock and the rest of the BCS executives) are watching, paying attention. I wonder if it really even matters if they did. They want to cash in on this huge money-maker, but they're just bankrupting the sport (yes, pun intended in every imaginable way). What will it take for the BCS executives to finally give in and give college football the much-needed playoff? I'm just curious. I guess I'll tune back in when they figure it out.
