One BCS computer still ranks Notre Dame No. 1, because itís the BCS
 
You saw the BCS Championship Game, right? Well, at least the parts that mattered before turning to something more interesting, most notably Alabama rolling to a huge lead over Notre Dame and ESPN showing A.J. McCarron's girlfriend.

So you know that Alabama is the best team in the nation. Nobody in their right mind would pick Notre Dame ahead of Alabama after witnessing the carnage that was 42-14 on Monday night.
Oh, but the BCS has a computer that still prefers the Irish. So let the BCS bashing continue.

The Colley Matrix, one of the six computer systems used by the BCS, has Notre Dame ranked No. 1 and the Crimson Tide No. 2. Notre Dame's final ranking was 0.973997 to Alabama's 0.961139. Notre Dame had an edge in strength of schedule. Alabama won more games against top 25 teams in the rankings. Margin of victory is not part of the calculations. No matter how the computer spit out that reading, it's worth mentioning again: An entity the BCS uses still prefers Notre Dame to Alabama.

They're not going to make Alabama give back the trophy over it or anything, and it's just one of the many rankings the BCS uses to determine who plays in the final game (not who is awarded the championship) but it just shows once again that there are flaws in the process.

Must be that program installed to try and stop two SEC teams being in the championship game.

And just imagine the debates we'll be treated to as 12 teams are equally deserving of the final 4 playoff spots.

Exactly why 4 is not enough. If you include 16 teams, no one can beotch. And you know, the 16th team will not win. Just how many teams are included in Division III playoffs? Surprise... surprise ... 2012 Division III football bracket: D3football.com

You misread my post. Even at 16 teams you could have 12 teams claiming the right to be that 13th, 14th, 15th and 16th team.

IIRC, Louisville was ranked 17th, and would likely have been excluded form a 16 game playoff.

The complaining won't stop regardless of how many teams you let in.

If you click the link... Div III shows more than 16 teams ... ;) Besides.... There is no way Louisville beats Bama ..... errr ... is there?

:lol:, that must have been the one computer they forgot to input the Alabama data into, :lol:.

Stuff like this with Notre Dame makes me believe in all those Illuminati/Catholic church conspiracy theories in those Tom Hanks movies, :lol:.
