AAC commissioner lobbies for BCS computers to return after disrespect from CFP committee
Cincinnati is enjoying an 8-0 season in 2020, but the Bearcats’ chances of sneaking into the College Football Playoff appear slim to none, even in this, the wackiest of college football seasons.
This is not going over well in Cincinnati or at the American Athletic Conference headquarters in Irving, Texas. AAC Commissioner Mike Aresco joined “The Paul Finebaum Show” to air his grievances this week, and even suggested a return to the old way of determining college football’s postseason.
“I never thought I’d say this, but if this continues, let’s bring back the BCS and the computers” said Aresco. “Because it would be a fairer system than what I’m seeing now.
“I mean this is the seventh year and it does appear that the deck is stacked against us and against other G4. I think the committee is undermining its credibility with the rankings, that, to me defy logic and common sense and fairness.”
It is a tough pill to swallow for Cincinnati, as even a 2-loss Florida team sits above them at No. 6 in the rankings at the moment.
Aresco’s complaints are fair, but would a BCS system really have Cincinnati in the national title game?
