Occupy the B.C.S.
To the ever-growing list of life’s certainties—death, taxes, fourth-quarter comebacks by Tim Tebow—we can now add annual complaints about college football’s Bowl Championship Series. Last night, a panel of human voters, prone, as a species, to mistakes, and computers, prone, as devices, to a lack of emotion, selected Louisiana State and Alabama as title-game opponents. This means we will get to watch the Game of the Century again, two months after the last one, even if the first one, in which no one scored a touchdown, barely registered as the Game of the Evening.
