Jimbo: No reason to have National Championship game

"I think it stinks," Fisher said. "I think the BCS and how we do it with these computers, I think we're ruining it. And the playoff isn't going to solve it, either. They've got to change how we pick the top teams in this country. It's not working. I think it was better in the old days when you did it by the eye test and you didn't have a championship game."

Discuss.

The rest of the article was even scarier. That dude is out of touch with how his team and conference compare to others

Does he seriously think a bunch of hacks voting at the end of the season and picking a champion is more fair? He can't believe that.

Yeah ... my eye test says pre-choose the best 2 SEC teams to play
in the CG and make all other schools prove they deserve to bump
one of those teams ... yeah Jimbo, yeah.

He's a goddamned idiot.

The computers are the only things that get things right because they are objective and they focus on what you've actually done rather than getting gaga over how a team looked.

Look, like it or not there is no justification for Bama being ahead of us. We beat LSU, A&M and SC. They beat LSU. Of course the only way to argue it is to subjectively say they looked better than us.

Sorry, I'd rather put teams in championship games based on who they actually performed against rather than some subjective guess based on how teams looked against lesser competition.

I'm not sure which coach I'd enjoy punching in the face more: Jimbo or Kiffin!

Jimbo thinks the National Champion should be crowned by the media before the season starts, FSU would be untouchable in that case.

He knows that's the only way an ACC team will ever play in another title game.

FSU would be in the national championship this year if they had not stumbled against NC State and they ran the rest of their schedule. He's just mad that he can't lose a game against University of Phoenix Online College or one of the other ACC schools and still get to go to the championship game. Someone needs to explain to Dumbo that you can't have your cake and eat it too.

No question. He's pulling a Pete Carrol in his foot-stomping in mid-November. Nobody forced you to lose to OrgSt(NcSt) and you had to know coming in that the margin for error was minimal at best. You didn't get it done, and your conference brethren look like garbage as well.

But honestly, this is an off-year for the SEC because of the upset this weekend, which helps to open up a spot. With their SOS being what it is, they could've even found themselves on the outside if a B12 team or P12 team goes undefeated. Logically, if the Tide win out, including a drumming in Atl, who doesn't think they're more deserving than an undefeated ACC team?

However it's sliced, they're out, and he...well...

He believes the coaches poll is the way to go because coaches know more and are unbiased. He then reveals that he ranked FSU as #4 on his ballot.

There went his theory.

I wouldn't call this an "off year". If anything, it's the best year the SEC has had in quite a while. 6 of the top 9 BCS teams are from the SEC. If anything, it's parity at it's finest...and exactly what the fear was in 1991 when they wanted to have an SEC Championship Game: that the SEC would beat each other up and then NO ONE from the conference would play for/win a National Championship. Going to 14 teams this year certainly has done that...as Texas A&M wouldn't be an SEC member had we not expanded.

Jimbo is right.

The system was much better when FSU could stroll through the cakewalk known as the ACC with the idiots on BSPN gushing over the fact that they scored 50+ points against Duke. You know kinda like they are doing this year.

Those were the days.

Ignore the idiot

He doesn't like a playoff because he knows the chance of his team ever finishing in the top 4 is slim and none.

I really hope Muschamp, Pease, and Quinn come up with a plan to beat those a$$holes in 2 weeks.

The mighty Gators, ranked #6 and sporting a 10-1 record in the SEC do not need to get beaten in the erector set.
