Resigned to the BCS system

I’m biased because of my love for Iowa Hawkeye football, but I thought the BCS Bowl pairings came out about as good as you can get under current circumstances.  I know the whole thing is not a “real” championship, but given the way money sloshes around the current Bowl setup, a “real” national championship playoff will never happen because “real” fairness requires a sixteen team tournament, which would marginalize the current bowl system, a system dependent on holiday travel and spending.

However, there is still plenty of good football to be played over the holidays because of the BCS system.  It’s just a matter of who is going to play it.
