BCS Screw Job

Central Florida’s football team is getting a Bowl Championship Series berth. So is Clemson. But the University of South Carolina – which beat both of these top 20 programs in 2013 – is getting the shaft. At No. 8 in the nation, South Carolina (10-2, 6-2 SEC) will be the…

Central Florida’s football team is getting a Bowl Championship Series berth. So is Clemson. But the University of South Carolina – which beat both of these top 20 programs in 2013 – is getting the shaft.

At No. 8 in the nation, South Carolina (10-2, 6-2 SEC) will be the highest-ranked team in America to get shut out of the BCS.

Is that fair?

Yes and no. We say “yes” because all head coach Steve Spurrier’s squad had to do to pick up its eleventh regular season win (and a trip to the SEC championship game in Atlanta) was to pick up a late fourth quarter first down against lowly Tennessee – something it failed to do.

Let’s face it: There’s a legitimate argument that if your team can’t do that – it doesn’t deserve a BCS bid.

On the flip side, there’s absolutely no way Central Florida or Clemson deserve the prestige (and money) that comes with playing in a BCS bowl just because they compete in crappy conferences. In fact the last time a ten-win Clemson team wound up in the BCS, the result was a record-breaking humiliation … at the hands of another team from a crappy conference.

Contrast that with the postseason dominance of the SEC – which has won the last seven national titles and thoroughly dominated its rivals in the process (here and here).

Oh … and HERE as it relates to the Carolina-Clemson argument.

This notion that conference equality should somehow factor into a team’s postseason placement (and payoff) is ludicruous. In fact it is worse than ludicrous – it is downright perverse. Its affirmative action for football, another example of this country putting the equality of outcomes (i.e. socialism) over the equality of opportunity (i.e. the free market).

Seriously … putting BCS stickers on the back of Clemson and Central Florida helmets (but not on the back of South Carolina helmets) this year is the same thing as artificially inflating Medicaid rolls – it is perpetuating the dependency economy that continues to drag this country down.

Anyway … we’d like to think the long-overdue demise of the BCS at the conclusion of this season (in favor of a four-team playoff system) will similarly end college football’s era of postseason welfare, but we doubt it.

For starters it would take at least an eight-team playoff – which this website has advocated for years – to incorporate all programs with a legitimate claim to the national title. Hell, the four-team playoff might even wind up being more controversial than the BCS.

What’s abundantly clear is this: As long as postseason decisions continue to be made on some imposed definition of equality – and not teams’ on-field performances – then we will continue to see deserving teams like South Carolina get shafted (and undeserving teams like Central Florida and Clemson elevated).

“The BCS was created by formal agreement by those six conferences (the Atlantic Coast, Big East [now the American Athletic], Big Ten, Big 12, Pacific-10 [now Pacific-12], and Southeastern conferences) and the three FBS independent schools, and has evolved to allow other conferences to participate to a lesser degree.” If the SEC doesn’t like the arrangement, then it should have never agreed to it.

Baby Sic December 8, 2013 at 5:26 pm

Aw, the little Coot fans can’t take the fact that the BCS wants Clemson over the Gamecocks. The SEC signed the contract just like the AAC and ACC. I can’t wait to see that nice 8 figure check get deposited into Clemson’s bank account and a check for less than a third of that amount go to USC. (Yes, I realize that Clemson won’t keep all the money but still, the check is going to be made out to Clemson)

Taters on a technicality December 8, 2013 at 5:47 pm

hey dumbass. No one every said the BCS “wants” Clem5on over the Gamecocks as you claim. The BCS just cant take USC because of rules that were put in place a while back basically because the ACC and the other crap conferences said it had to be fair to them too. If the BCS could take the Gamecocks and especially Spurrier they would prefer them over the team that set the record for most points ever given up and your assclown of a coach.

Moral Victory University December 8, 2013 at 8:32 pm

That check is spread evenly amongst the rest of the ACC schools. Thats the whole reason why USC can’t go because too much money would go to the SEC, not necessarily to a specific team. Moral Victory University, i mean Clemson at its finest

Squishy123 December 8, 2013 at 10:07 pm

Ahh, the schools don’t get all that money, it’s split between all teams in the conference.

AsianSuperfly December 9, 2013 at 9:46 am

The BCS doesn’t want Clemson over USC. The rules only allow two teams per conference in the BCS bowls. The first from the SEC is obviously Auburn, “chosen” automatically for being ranked #2. Only one more SEC team could be selected from those that could have arguably deserved a BCS berth: Alabama, Mizzou, South Carolina.

Clemson was not chosen over South Carolina. Alabama was. Even as a Gamecock fan, you’ll get no argument from me on that one.

That’s “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” I think you are referring to Georgia’s fight song. Never have understood why a (deep) southern school would choose a Federal Army marching song as a fight song. Sherman’s troops sang the song all the way across Georgia and SC as they burned Atl. and Cola. What a bunch of total idiots in Athens to cheer on their team to the sounds of that song. Should have left the stinking state as a penal colony as it was first envisioned.

TontoBubbaGoldstein December 8, 2013 at 9:30 pm

TBG , for at least 30 years, thought it was “I’ve Been Working on the Railroad.” Thought it had something to do with some RR tracks and a trestle near Sanford Stadium.

What do you really think your team did? They are a bunch of players that are only in the orange bowl as a 4th option. 2 other teams should have been there but because or “rules” were not eligible. And then there was Oregon, that was 3256 miles away ,causing fear to the Orange bowl that the ducks wouldn’t “fly” so you became the 4th option not to mention a tie in to help the ACC try to be relevant in football. Damn that sucks when you put it into the truth doesn’t it? They couldn’t get the 3 first options so they took you. It’s kind of like being the fat ass bitch left at last call getting to go home with the drunk guy. The Orange bowl struck out so many times before that night and just had to get something, then the next day he just prayed no one saw the walk of shame the next morning. That’s what Clem5on is, the walk of shame representative. Damn again looking at it for the truth of what it is, it sucks for you. hahaha. Good job there!! You are nothing but the 250 pound fat chick still at the bar after last call. lmfao at the fact you think its something to be proud of.

As it is: FSU is LIAO…they got a cakewalk. And America gets cheated w/ a $#!ttY NC game, AGAIN…because the BCS are cowards…

Better luck against who? My team is done for the year.

GrandTango December 9, 2013 at 8:04 am

That was a track meet, with Auburn getting a couple more breaksin the end than Mizzou…FSU, for a change, belongs. So does Bama…

But Auburn will be almost as bad as the ignorant match-up from last year. W/o a lot of luck for Auburn, FSU may as well be crowned Champ. Aubrun is a pretender…

Squishy123 December 9, 2013 at 10:54 am

I bet you’d love for no one to be around to slap the P!$$ out of your ignorant @$$…Dumb@$$#$ hate to have their lock-step stupidity challenged.

PS: Bama would beat the F#*k out of Auburn if they played again…instead we’ve got a fluke team, not deserving, playing a contender…and it equals a sorry NC game again, unless Auburn can pull it out their @$$ again…

Don’t underestimate Auburn, dude. It’ll still be a good game.

Alabama had so many chances to score more points against Auburn and they couldn’t perform. I think they are in general the better team but they beat themselves.

TontoBubbaGoldstein December 9, 2013 at 11:07 am

*Furtively looks around*

Smirks, GrandTango,and TBG are ALL in AGREEMENT that despite their loss, Alabama is a better team than Auburn.

What just happened?

Congratulations to Clemson. The rules are the rules.

If you remember, I was worried, after the Tennessee loss, about this probability. But there is no cause for humiliation. We know what conference we play in. We do our part against Wisconsin – we can hold our head up. Should Clemson rule OSU, it will prove what we Gamecocks have known about the Buckeyes since 2001. Don’t know what it will prove if the reverse happens.

Remember, Gamecocks – the more Clemson wins, the better we look.

cuvinny December 8, 2013 at 11:55 pm

Fits, these schools and bowls negotiated everything in the free market, quit trying to impose your ideas on them because it didn’t work out for you this time, facist

Smirks December 9, 2013 at 7:02 am

That’s fucking funny, Willie bitching about “DAT DERE SOSHULIZM” in all of this. They can choose who to match up all they want, bro. It is “free market,” or at least as free markety as you can get with the number of public university football teams up for consideration for bowl games. The fact is, if they made shitty decisions and didn’t have a good matchup, don’t you think they miss out on money when no one watches because they chose shitty teams? In the end, they want to make sure they pit good teams against each other to get the viewership, and therefore, more money.

Hard to say as a Gamecocks fan, but no, we don’t deserve a BCS bowl. I’m stoked we got what we got, but damn dude, both teams lost two games, but Clemson at least lost to far better teams than we did. Neither team are as consistent as I’d like them to be on making great plays but it cost us wins against teams we really should have beaten. Congratulations to Clemson, good luck to them and good luck to us. No point in fighting, let’s just stomp some Yankee ass!

Wasn’t long ago we weren’t even making it to a bowl game at all. Be grateful man!

USC Lost to a lowly Georgia team that went 8-4 and lost to Clemson

Clemson lost to the likely National champion and a

USC team that never loses at home due to the SEC’s most

So, Ohio State by a TKO?

Penus Williams December 9, 2013 at 10:37 am

Clemson fans can go on all they want to about getting a BCS bid, but we all know what happened the last time they were in a BCS bowl AND this BCS bid may help some Clemson fans feel better about their team, but you still lost to Souh Carolina (again). Everyone just witnessed Duke play in the “mighty” ACC Championship game for crying out loud. Is there any other team in the ACC that the BCS could give the second spot to?

Let’s see if you can actually win something before you get all carried away with yourselves.

Which UGA team was a proxy?

genius December 9, 2013 at 10:54 pm

I agree with CNSYD if Clemson beat UGA, and USC lost to UGA – its pretty safe to assume that head to head USC would have lost to Clemson if they played each other this year. right?

Original Good Old Boy December 9, 2013 at 4:04 pm

How sad. Clemson fans are reduced to proxy wins by other teams.
“Clemson can’t beat USC, but UGA and UT did, yuk yuk yuk.”

CNSYD December 9, 2013 at 4:48 pm

Repeat yourself much? I am still waiting on which UGA team was a proxy. The one who Clemson beat or the one who beat USCe.

Original Good Old Boy December 10, 2013 at 3:55 pm

Hard to believe that you are trying this hard to rationalize a loss. After five straight beat downs, you would think that you have learned your place. But there you go, beating your chest about UGA and UT. If that’s what makes it a little warmer on those cold winter nights, enjoy those moral victories for the tigers. At least UGA did what Clemson couldn’t.

TontoBubbaGoldstein December 9, 2013 at 11:17 am

Seriously … putting BCS stickers on the back of Clemson and Central Florida helmets (but not on the back of South Carolina helmets) this year is the same thing as artificially inflating Medicaid rolls – it is perpetuating the dependency economy that continues to drag this country down.

I ain’t knoe ClemZen fan, but they are legit. We could have very easily lost to them. As far as the conference is concerned, Clemzen and FSU could easily be one of the SEC supremes. However, FSU appears to be on a level above anyone else in the Kuntry. We’ll see, but i believe Duke is a good fit for Texas A&M. The Vandys, Ole Miss, and Mississippi States are comparable to a Ga. Tech, UNC, and Pitt. One loss against a Georgia didn’t hurt us. It seems like every year we pull a gamecockening and lose to a mediocre Auburn or terrible Tennessee squad. Lets face it, we were just one win away from playing for a heavyweight title.

Crooner December 9, 2013 at 11:53 am

I thought it was the super rich playing fast and loose with bundles of sub-prime mortgage backed securities that ‘dr[u]g this country down” the last time?

ObjectiveGuy December 9, 2013 at 2:14 pm

This article is awful, and poorly written. Clemson and UCF are very deserving of the bowls that they’re in. Clemson has a great win over a full strength UGA team (something the Gamecocks couldn’t do). Also, they did lose to the team that will probably win the National Championship. Outside of that, all of Clemson’s wins are very convincing. They lost to a decent USC team on the road, but lets be honest. Clemson beat themselves. Also, everyone with a functional brain knows USC should have had more loses then they did. Including to UCF. It’s so obvious that there is an agenda in this article. The ACC is a bad conference? Well for south carolina, all they have is a 1969 ACC championship. And holding the 2011 orange bowl against clemson, is like holding the 2003 Clemson 63 USC 17 against South Carolina. Really stupid, because its totally different teams.

Penus Williams December 9, 2013 at 4:34 pm

This is rich.

Clemson did not beat themselves. They lost to South Carolina. Check the score.

Let’s be honest. South Carolina beat a decent UCF team on the road. Check the score.

Your auguments are stupid. Remind us again who Clemson defeated this year.

good grief December 9, 2013 at 10:47 pm

I always love this psuedo logic a losing team uses to say “we only lost by 2 points blah, blah, blah…” always forgotten in the ridicilous self-fooling exercise is that the winning team did even better by not only losing by a small amount (which you define as “pretty much winning”) but actually won – even by a little.

BIG DOG December 9, 2013 at 2:31 pm

Damn! SEC Snobby Egotistical Crybabies! Y’all just think you should all be in the BCS because your the SEC! Newsflash, quit riding the coattails of the teams that are at the top. South Carolina sux, Florida sux and so does every other team in the SEC outside of Alabama. As for the person that wrote this article, I agree on one thing you said. At least an eight team play-off is due. As for everything else you said, your an idiot, a bandwagonner and to opinionated to be writing articles. FSU beat a SEC team, Miami beat a SEC team and Clemson beat a SEC team. But as you say the ACC is a soft conf. Your an idiot in my opinion!

Jackie Chiles December 9, 2013 at 3:22 pm

Lol. Georgia Southern beat that same SEC team you’re bragging that FSU and Miami beat, so I wouldn’t be crowing about that win too much.

BIG DOG December 9, 2013 at 3:27 pm

Their so called mighty SEC. Bring on any team in the country because FSU will beat them! ACC has the top dog this year and you shall see come January. Also remember in a rivalry game, all rules are out the window when it comes to Florida teams playing each other
