Utah got hosed.
Boise State ran their table, all to no avail. They did not even crack the BCS.
Let's not forget Auburn. undefeated in the regular season, PLUS won the SEC Championship, PLUS won their bowl game convincingly. ENTIRE BACKFIELD snarfed up in the FIRST ROUND of the NFL draft. Wouldn't you think they would be deserving of a shot ?
Cal - a lesser claim, lost a close one to USC, out of the BCS. If you want to have Wild Cards (someone not undefeated, but about as close as you can get otherwise), Cal was it.
Scrap the BCS. the only way to accommodate more tha 2 undefeated teams is to have a playoff. 16 teams, because about every other year 8 will end up excluding somebody worthy. Incorporate ACC / SEC / Big XII Champ game in first round (6 teams). Others would be Pac10 champ, Big Eleven Champ, BE Champ, MWC Champ, and 6 others "at-large" (with preference given to any undefeated team from WAC, CUSA, MAC, SBC). Or something approximating this....
The current system really cheats the fans, and the only leverage fans have to change the system is to boycott the BCS bowls.
