Here we are in the last week of the college football season, barring a very improbable change of heart in the minds of voters and those tricky computers, LSU and Alabama will meet in January for college football’s national title.

If you’re wondering where you’ve seen this match up before, it was just a few short weeks ago when these two SEC titans met in the regular season, a game with as much if not more hype than the national championship game will have. While the game didn’t disappoint most fans, we all knew that the game could very well be a preview of the national championship. Oklahoma State and Oregon made sure of that each losing a game and in the process their hopes of national championship.

I suppose you could say I’m not a supporter of the current BCS system. Although it’s technically the best thing we have to settle the dispute of who the two best teams in the country are each year, that doesn’t make it right. It doesn’t excite me that the climax of the season has virtually no outcome on who will be playing for the national title. Every once in a while, it’ll happen like this. As mentioned, the BCS is not perfect. But consider this. Teams like Stanford, Oregon and Oklahoma State all have just one loss on the year just like Alabama yet have zero chance to play for the spot Alabama currently has. Houston is undefeated but has the curse of being in Conference-USA and is farther from any of the one loss teams to a championship opportunity.

We’re expected to be satisfied with the fact that these one loss teams and Houston will be playing in less important bowl games like the Fiesta, or Tostitos. Is that supposed to make me feel better? No. Frankly I could care less about these games, only the championship game counts to me.

I’d love to see Houston have a crack at LSU this year. Only a few times since the BCS system has been unleashed on college football have the two best teams in the nation faced each other. How much sense does that make? This anti-climactic end to the season this year has certainly put an icing on the ‘end of BCS’ cake for me.

I won’t be watching college football this upcoming weekend in protest. I’m not saying a playoff is necessary but this week is proof that the ‘resume’ system in the BCS is boring us all to tears. Let’s get it right college football.
