The Georgia Tech effect

Postby Zambo » Fri Nov 30, 2012 9:04 pm

What an interesting spot they are in. 6-6 heading into the bowl game. Unless I am mistaken there are two possible outcomes.

1. They lose the game and end the season with a losing record and don't get to go to even a crappy bowl.

2. They win the game, and get a BCS bowl berth as champions of the ACC.

I for one think this is an awesome way to conduct business. Only the university presidents, the smartest minds in our nation's 'educational' system, could come up with such a system.

They already petitioned the NCAA and they were granted permission to a bowl if they lose to the semis. That crappy team will probably end up 6-8.

It would so sweet if they win tomorrow though.

And N. Illinois has stormed back from down ten to take the lead, 17 - 10, middle of the second quarter. Go fightin' whatevertheyarecalled!

The same thing happened to Kansas State a couple years back when they lost the Big 12 Championship Game.

+1 This is the year, if ever, it's proven the BCS has run its' course. It would have been a perfect year for a playoff (would have been even worse if Ohio State wasn't on probation or Oregon and/or Kansas St didn't lose). Now with the expanded conferences we need to drop the BCS more than ever.

PS, how does one get a top job in the NCAA where basically all you do is meet once a year and have money loaded into your bank accounts?

It's not as simple as a won and loss record but that's how the system works. The problem is the comparative analysis needed (the famed eyeball test) from the polls that equates the quality of a win or record.

All that aside, it's an embarrassment to have teams below .500 in conference championships and being a rep in a bowl games. This is the ACC we're talking about.

Maybe they could use Jimbos eye, he loves the eye test.
