Ohio State coach Urban Meyer: BCS a ‘flawed’ system
Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer isn’t a fan of the Bowl Championship System and knows his team needs help to reach the title game, even if they continue to pile up the victories.
The Buckeyes are ranked third in this week’s BCS rankings, far behind Alabama and Florida State. Ohio State is just .0013 ahead of Baylor in the standings and could drop even further depending on this weekend’s games.
Baylor plays No. 10 Oklahoma State in Stillwater and Ohio State plays unranked Indiana at home on Saturday.
“Without spending much time on it, because it’s not fair to our team for me to spend much time on it, I will say this — I think it’s a flawed system,” Meyer said Monday, via Cleveland.com. “But when you logically think about what the BCS people have done, and which obviously we’re all part of, I think it was great for a while. I think you take an imperfect system and you do the best you can without hosting a playoff.
“I imagine there’s going to be controversy with the playoffs, too, now. It’s not a 64-team playoff; you can only have four guys. What’s that fifth team going to feel like?”
