Who is College Football’s National Champion?

Florida just beat Ohio State in the BCS championship game, leaving Boise State as the only undefeated team in college football Division I. So….because Boise State is not part of the six conference elite clique, they don’t get to play against Ohio State (the only other undefeated team before today’s game). Does Boise State deserve to be national champion, as they are the only team not beaten? Does Florida for beating one of the two undefeated teams?

What do you all think?

    I think that Florida is the undisputed national champion. They emergred from (and won) the toughest conference in the nation with only one loss, and then capped things off by beating a team (Ohio State) that many thought was far and away the best in the land. Meanwhile, Boise State plays in an inferior conference (as you mentioned) which also means they play a far, far, far weaker schedule than Florida (and weaker than Ohio State for that matter) did. Sure, the Broncos went 13-0, but the only “quality win” they had was in the Fiesta Bowl over Oklahoma (and let’s not forget they blew a HUGE second half lead there before winning in overtime).

    In short, yes Boise state is undefeated, and yes they played in the most entertaining college football game in quite some time, but no, they do not deserve to be in the national championship discussion.

    First, just because Boise State has an undefeated record, that doesn’t automatically mean that they should be the undisputed National Champion. They did have a much weaker schedule than most of the Conference Elites. However, its good to see the BCS buster and a win like this offers a glimmer of hope that maybe, someday we’ll see a more legit playoff in Div 1-A Football.

    Matt,

    Thanks for your comments. I realize under BCS rules, Florida is the undisputed national champion, but as long as Boise State is in the same division (which they are), just why don’t they deserve a shot at the national championship? It’s as if there are actually two divisions in Division I-A, and the “lower class” divisions don’t get to play.

    I guess I’m just looking forward to when college football follows in the footsteps of all other collegiate sports that have playoffs.

    Dan–Not to mention all other collegiate football divisions. They have playoffs too. Div 1-A? Still good ol’ boy system. Down with the good ol’ boy frat!

    I would love to see a playoff as well, but I doubt that will happen any time soon. Florida deserves the title…

    More amazing to me is the fact that San Jose State received a vote in the AP poll. Who is that person kidding?

  7. The Boston College Football program has been on the right track for the last couple years with dramatic improvements in all aspects of the game. The Eagles capped the 2006 season with a monumental win over Navy 25-24. Not a bad start to the off-season.Recently, six Boston College football players were elected to hard earned spots on the 37-member 2006 All-Atlantic Cost Conference Academic Football Team.

    The list includes offensive guard Josh Beekman, who was selected as first-team All-America by the Associated Press, and All-ACC offensive tackle James Marten. The Place-kicker Steve Aponavicius a walk on, makes the team one week after he was granted a full scholarship by Head Coach Jeff Jagodzinski. Eagle cornerback Larry Anam, offensive guard Ty Hall and defensive end Nick Larkin also made the teams image sparkle after they were chosen.
    On February 19th, the team completed it’s coaching staff by adding wide receiver coach Ryan Day. He is no stranger to this Boston College Football Program. Day served as the offensive graduate assistant coach at Boston College during the 2003 and 2004 seasons, before moving to the Temple Program. Obviously, this is a good call to hire a coach like Ryan Day.

    For Boston College, a lot of work needs to be done but you can bet all your money they will have an impact in next year’s BCS. The constant improvements and the amount of respect that flows through this Boston College Football Program is a key point that will drive their success to levels never reached before.

    Don’t you agree?
