As complaints about the Bowl Championship Series go, this is one of the better ones, based purely upon my opinion:
175 university elitists (the human voters) determine what 100 million consumers have to consume, and do everything possible to insulate themselves from feedback on their decisions. This is close to the ratio of the Politburo of the old Soviet Union versus the population of the USSR. These elitists suffer no consequences if they are caught taking bribes for votes and are thus easily corruptible (much like the Politburo), especially with all the money the SEC and ESPN have available to corrupt those voters.
Now remember what the NCAA says: it’s only corruption if the students get money.
College football is only one of two competitive systems who use opinion to determine a champion. The other? BEAUTY PAGEANTS. Both use little to no objective data to determine a winner, and both are rife with bribery for the “judges” so that power players get to earn and keep undeserved prizes.
Real athletes settle it on the field.
Anyone for a Miss Universe cage match?
