TCU takes the national Championship in a very close game. Congratulations to the TCU Horned Frogs, the 2009 Kotite's Corner National Champions.
So what does this all mean? Did the BCS get it right this year? Once again, the answer is a resounding 'No.' In fact, the question "Did the BCS get it right?" is a stupid question to be begin with, because the BCS cannot get it right, the BCS is not right to begin with. The BCS means a computer chooses two teams to play for the National Championship. Whether the two teams selected are the best two teams in the nation is meaningless. There are plenty of teams this year who haven't lost a single game, including TCU and Cincinnati, who will not get to play for the National Cahmpionship. There are arguments for and against all of the top teams, which is why we need a playoff system in college football. Division I-AA, and all Divisions below that have a playoff system.
College basketball will always be better than college football, because of college basketball's playoff system, March Madness. Did anybody ask whether UNC and Michigan State deserved to play for the National Championship last season? Did anybody ask whether March Madness got it right? No, because March Madness is a great playoff system, which always features classic, memorable games, upsets, buzzer beaters, and memories. A playoff system in football would probably create the same result.
To close our 2009 college football playoff, here is the final bracket, and how the tournament played out.
