Urban Meyer: BCS Is ‘Flawed System’

Buckeyes_Urban_Meyer_2013Whether it’s the current system, which Urban Meyer called “flawed,” or the playoff format that will soon replace it, the Ohio State coach isn’t expecting the controversy that accompanies college football’s postseason to go away.

With the No. 3 Buckeyes under intense scrutiny every week and Baylor closing the gap in the BCS standings and potentially in position to leapfrog his team, Meyer voiced his frustration while trying to deflect attention away from the polls and computer formulas.

“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. “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.
