The Oklahoma Sooners are No. 1 in the first installment of the 2010 BCS standings, but all anyone wants to talk about is the absurdity of the system itself. That might just have something to do with the new book Death to the BCS. Dan Wetzel, columnist for Yahoo! Sports and co-author of the book, joins Homerism to discuss the myths propping up the most-reviled postseason in sports.
Dan and I cover:
- who benefits from the BCS and why;
- the potential impact of a playoff on TV ratings for college football; and
- what it would take to hasten the actual death of the BCS.
