The American Heartland Bar and Grill College Football Top 30

Here it is, the only objective, unbiased ranking system there is. Strictly driven by wins and losses period. This is much more fairer to the non-BCS schools.

Compared to BCS rankings:
-Iowa = underranked
-USC = way overranked
-TCU = slightly underranked
-Cincinnati and Boise State = slightly overranked.

Political Championship Wrestling- putting politics in proper perspective by presenting it as pro wrestling.

Coming in January, a political satire about the sorry state of American Politics- Jesusland vs. Progressiveville.

The BCS rates subjective material in the form of the voters. Whereas the computers only rate objective material in the form of wins, losses, and point spread.

If the BCS went to a strictly objective rating such as the one we use to determine who gets into the Ohio high school playoffs every team has an equal shot and the only bias is who ends up with the most wins and losses and the wins and losses of the teams they played.

I have developed my own rating system that's very similar. I've been published in the past but not currently.

Oddly enough, the Big Ten is a big roadblock to implementing a playoff system which fans support. A Big Ten team only needs to go undefeated against weaker competition, and they're pretty much guaranteed a shot at the title. So there's little reason for the conference presidents to want a change.

The BCS is all about money. The way it works is when a team goes to a bowl the money they get from the payout only pays expenses. The rest is put into the conference. The conference then divy's it up amongst all the teams in the conference equally.

Being that the 4 BCS bowls generate more revenue than all the other bowls combined you can see why the 6 conferences don't want to give the $$ to the other 5.

Until congress steps in and breaks up the money sharing there will never be a playoff or a "fair" way to put teams into the mix.

Florida used to impress me, despite how much I dislike them. The last two weeks though, I've been very unimpressed.

If it wasn't for the 12th man they seem to have on the field, (the one wearing stripes) they would have lost the last two weeks in a row.
