Before you watch the Oklahoma/Florida BCS National Championship game, please take the time to read this. It’s totally worth it.
If you don’t believe me, the link is to a Slate article written by Bill James. Yes, that Bill James. The good news is that it reads a little less complex than this, which almost made me pass out when Rich showed it to me last night. To sum things up, Bill James absolutely murders the BCS, the computer rankings, and pretty much everyone involved in the entire process.
So tomorrow when you see all those “The BSC doesn’t work, it just didn’t feel right” columns everywhere, don’t bother reading them. You already know better, and I doubt you’ll see a better constructed argument anywhere else. Either way, enjoy the game tonight. It should be a good one.
