Urban Meyer Thinks The BCS Is Out To Get Him

Boohoo, Urban.

Boo hoo, Urban.

In the least surprising news ever, this week a coach of a team on the outside of the BCS Championship looking in has taken up the always popular “the BCS sucks” cause. In an interview with ESPN, Ohio State coach Urban Meyer took the BCS task for what he called a “logically flawed system.”

Obviously bitter about his Buckeyes being the only (seemingly) invisible undefeated team in college football the last two seasons, Meyer isn’t just upset with the current system. He’s bitter with the current system and any other system spawned from it, including the four-game playoff to be implemented next season.

Said Meyer on the future:

“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?”

That’s interesting. Meyer sure didn’t seem too concerned with the plight of 11-1 Michigan in 2006 when his 12-1 Gators topped them in the final standings, putting Florida in the championship game against OSU.

In 2008 he certainly wasn’t worried about 11-1 Texas, 12-1 Alabama, 11-1 USC, 12-0 Utah, 11-1 Texas Tech, 11-1 Penn State or even 12-0 Boise State. That year Meyer’s 12-1 Gators met 12-1 Oklahoma in the BCS Championship.

So, what’s the difference between those seasons and this season? Oh yeah! Then it favored Meyer’s team, now it doesn’t. It seems his concern with the fairness of the BCS is directly proportionate to the negative impact it has on him and only him.

There’s something really gross about someone who only takes on a cause when and if it directly effects him. For some people it takes an illness striking a loved one before it really hits home and they decide to get involved.

Meyer probably wouldn’t get involved until something he was diagnosed with turned terminal. And even then, his involvement would likely be strictly punitive. Talking trash about the disease and all the people who failed to cure it.

Which is why I think I speak for most non-Ohio State fans when I say: Cry us a river, Urban.
