Professional College Athlete?

A great article by a CBS writer who is talking about the ability for student athletes to transfer schools with eligibility.  My take is transferring schools with NCAA eligibility and playing for another school goes against what the NCAA was setup for.  The parity that is in place gives all schools a chance.  Obviously some schools will attract the better athletes but at least kids can't jump schools. 

Now if the athlete were allowed to move around, schools would become similar  to a "professional" organization and most definitely the smaller schools would suffer.  Who cares?  We all do as a school in the North West would become not as competitive as say a school in the south west.  If we were to allow these kids to move around, then open it up and get rid of the BCS.  (i.e Boise State)

The article is worth reading:

Let me add a line about how many kids missed out on National Televsion exposure due to Alabama getting into a bowl game they shouldn't have.  Additionally, who cares if they won, LSU should now get a chance to see who is the two out of three winner.  The whole BCS thing stinks, sorry about that OK St.

BCS Blah Blah Blah

So we all know LSU is number one but why do we have to continue to have arguments about the rest.  Oklahoma State University could be better than Alabama and what about Stanford?  Why do we have to have the BCS for ranking these teams.  Alabama is questionable and so is Oklahoma so would a four game playoff actually hurt?  No a playoff would not hurt anything except the amount of money made in the Bowl Game scenario.  Fine have the bowl games and play one more game for the championship. Really why can't this happen, I am tired of the analyst's guessing who is better without the teams actually playing each other.  Excuse me, Alabama already lost to LSU.

BCS vs True Champion

Here we go again, Oklahoma State loses and now we have at least five to six teams vying for 2nd place.  Problem with that is Alabama is part of that equation and they lost to the number one team.  Then we have Oregon who with a win should leap ahead for contention, at least we think. Technically what does it say about Iowa if they beat number 2?  Guess we can't can't talk about Iowa because the BCS won't let us. 
Can anybody truly rationalize the BCS formula against some form of playoff or title game?  How about let the country decide who our top 25 are?  Sounds pretty bad except what is the difference between the BCS and those that follow NCAA Football.  Instead of the BCS conversation, let the public decide how we rank teams. 
The games are for the kids playing and the fans watching.  Quit giving us some random idea of who should be playing College Football after New Years Day, make a solid winner.  With what we presently have now, whomever beats LSU in the end is number one to include somebody they already beat this year.  Gee that makes alot of sense.
