College football does decide the best team every year because #1 plays # 2 for all the marbles.

All the NCAA Tourney decides is a tournament winner, nothing else. A team that finished in 9th place in its conference (UConn) has no claim to being the best team for the season, all they did was win a tournament.

Not true, ND started about #20 this season. In 2009 UC started unranked, got to #3, and if Colt McCoy had held on to the football one second longer UC would have been playing for the National Championship.

In college basketball a team can go 0-31 during the regular season, get hot at the end, win its conference tournament, win the NCAA Tournament, and be National Champion with a record of 10-31. Go 0-12 in college football you go no where but home.

UC No.24 in coaches poll. There seems to be a big difference between the two polls especially 20-25.

1999 - Kansas state finished 3rd in final bcs standings and passed by 4th ranked osu and two loss Florida

2000 - kansas state finished 6th in bcs standings and was passed over for bcs game by 8th ranked Michigan

2001 - Miami was ranked #2 in both human polls and got passed over by another one loss team in Florida state for championshop. Another 1 loss team in Washington was passed over as well. Florida state lost while Washington and Miami routed their opponents

2002 - Nebraska made the championship game despite being ranked #4 in both human polls. The computers did not take into account the time of the loss so Nebraska jumped oregon(#2). Nebraska lost and Oregon routed colorado(the 1 team Nebraska lost to)

2004- Oklahoma, LSU and USC all finished with 1 loss. USC got screwed

2005 - Boise state, auburn and Utah went undefeated. All were denied to play in the championship game.

2006- undefeated Boise state denied championship game. Michigan, Wisconsin and Louisville all had 1 losses and were denied the championship game in favor of florida(another 1 loss team)

2007- #6. Missouri was shut out of the bcs entirely. #8 Kansas was selected as one of the at large teams despite Missouri finishing higher in bcs standings. Hawaii was undefeated and did not play for a championship.

2009- Utah and Boise state were undefeated. Both denied a championship game. Utah beat Alabama that year in the sugar bowl to remain the nations only undefeated team but finished #2 in the standings

2010- five teams finished regular season undefeated. Alabama, Texas, Cincy, tcu and Boise state. Boise, Cincy and tcu got screwed

2011- tcu finishes undefeated again. So did Oregon and auburn. Tcu gets screwed....again.
Then The fiesta bowl scandal happened.

Plus one system is adapted for the future

2013- one loss Oregon gets screwed

College football relies too heavily on polls, big conference bias, scheduling cupcake teams, corruption from the bowls and power from the big media companies. It rarely has a true national champion.

College football has the worst postseason to determine a true national champion out of all the sports out there

Ralph, wise up.

Not sure how you can still be ranked after losing twice in a week by a combined score of 158-118.

That's unreal and complete horse sh1t. What bothers me is 3 losses total 8 points and we drop from 8 to out and then you throw this stat which adds frustration. No respect at all.

Only thing I can say is Cronin got his wish. Hope he "thrives" on this.

Nothing in this post makes any sense. It is about the 2 best teams meeting for the National Championship, which happens every year. No team in your post finished #1 or #2, if they had they would have played for the National Championship.

You know less about college football vs basketball than you do about conference realignment, and you have shown yourself to know nothing about conference realignment.
