BCS Title Game Coaches: Does BCS System Work?

Both Oregon coach Chip Kelly and Auburn coach Gene Chizik were asked that question Sunday. Their responses:


Kelly: “I got no idea, seriously. I don’t worry about things I have no control over. We’re playing against Cam Newton, and I’m worried about trying to tackle him than straighten out what some people consider right, not right. I don’t know. Just tell me what the rules of the game are and I will play by it. Let me put it this way: I don’t agree with the speed limit, but I gotta follow it.”


Chizik: I have been on both sides, but usually if you go back more times than not, the BCS formula has been right on. Am I saying there is a better way out there to do it? I don’t know. I think there are so many different speculations on how to do it with a playoff system and how many teams do we use and how long does the season last and how many playoff games are there… But I don’t think there’s that one perfect idea yet that everybody can come to great agreement that this is the way you do it."
