    Default BCS Logic Forced Bob Stoops to Concede Against Missouri

    BCS Logic Forced Bob Stoops to Concede Against Missouri
    October 27th. 2010

    Bob Stoops gave up. Down nine to Missouri with two minutes left, he punted on fourth down from his own four. Because of the BCS formula, it was preferable for Oklahoma to lose by nine than risk a loss by 16 for an improbable chance for victory. He made the right decision.

    Voters would not remember. The Coaches’ Poll and the Harris Poll account for two thirds of the BCS formula. Coaches are working on Saturday. Harris Poll voters are unaccountable. Both groups would look at the score and rank Oklahoma accordingly. Nine points is close in perception. Sixteen points is a comprehensive defeat.

    The system in place does not reward accomplishment. It encourages risk aversion. Faulty math and the enduring impressions of those not watching the game matter more for Oklahoma than what happened on the field. Whether you want a playoff, a solitary title game or merely the old system of traditional bowl games, it’s indisputable. The BCS is a sham.

    Kinda ****ed up in one way, but ****, I would "rather lose" by 9 points than by 16 points too.....down by 2 scores with 2 minutes left on your own 4 yard line....it only makes sense to do what he did.....so **** it!!!!

    I see Stoops' logic but as a coach there is just no way I could do that.
