Why the BCS wasn't even half as bad as it was made out to be
Stewart Mandel, Sports Illustrated:
For all the preemptive worrying and lobbying the past month -- first over the fear of there being too many undefeated teams; then over whether a one-loss SEC champion should potentially leapfrog the undefeated Buckeyes -- the final season of the BCS ended in surprisingly clean fashion.
Ken Bradley, Sporting News:
But a series of upsets, culminating with Michigan State’s win against Ohio State on Saturday night wrapped up the final BCS matchup nice and neat.
It usually did.
