I hate the BCS and no problem saying so. So, as I do every year, I'm delving into my yearly "BSC" playoff picture.
I have 12 teams make the BSC: the champion from the ACC, Big East, Big Ten, Big XII, SEC and Pac10. I also make it mandatory that the highest rated non-BCS school gets a playoff spot. The remaining five spots go to at-large teams ... with the cutoff point at three schools from one conference.
There are seeds and the games are played at the higher seed's home. The top four seeds get a first round bye. Obviously, I'm guessing on who would win the conference championship games.
#1-Alabama (SEC Champ)
#2-Texas Tech (Big XII Champ)
#3-Penn State (Big Ten Champ)
#12-Maryland (ACC Champ) at #5-Florida noon
#11-West Virginia (Big East Champ) at #6-Oklahoma 3p
#10-Boise State at #7-USC (Pac10 Champ) 6p
#9-Ohio State at #8-Utah (Top ranked non-BCS Champ) 9p
I used the BCS standings to seed the teams. I did flip-flop Ohio State and Boise State since the Buckeyes have already played at USC this year.
