A real BCS laugher

ESPN put a playoff simulator together. You can use the BCS rankings, their power rankings, custom rankings, etc. and then let it run. Further proof that too many idiots have a say in rankings and outcomes. I ran it with the BCS rankings. It had BYU upsetting OU in the first round along with TCU over Utah. Then it had TCU upsetting UT in the second round and OSU lite upsetting USC. Meanwhile its darling gators defeated UGa again and then TT on their way to defeating TCU and playing OSU lite in the finals. Their winner -- Florida. Who would've thought! Apparently it changes results each time. I'm going to try it a few more times for fun. Enjoy.

Haha, I ran it about 6 times until it didn't spit out Florida. Ended up with Penn State v. TT, with TT taking it all.

I ran it like 5 times using the BCS rankings. I got Florida first, PSU second (over TT I believe), OU third, USC next, and then UT. The whole thing is a joke. It's funny to look at though. My favorite was watching the percentages -- like when it says OU/UT/USC 89% and their opponent 10% yet the opponent wins. The other part that was funny is where you can click on a final score/outcome and get a miniature boxscore. They had all the Big 12 guys throwing for like 225 yards per game. That gives it credibility. LOL
