There is much recently hubbub about how the BCS selection went down this year. Now I am all for a playoff system, but I need to make one thing clear.
The computers did not pick this match-up, the pollsters did. I have seen many-a-article bash the BCS because a computer that never watched a football game picked the two teams to play. This is rubbish. If we look at the computer rankings we see that it paired Virginia Tech and LSU.
Don't blame the computers for a stupid decision, when it is the people that make a worse decision.
