Would you believe I drew this? The questions is, was I trying to draw like a fifth-grader or is this the best I could do?

When the AP and Coaches Polls come out later today, there's a good chance that Boise State will be in the top five in both of them. From here on out until they lose or until they get shut out of the BCS Championship Game, college football fans will wonder if the Broncs have a fair road to the National Championship or if the entire BCS system is so messed up, so corrupt, that it is impossible for a team like Boise State to ever have a true chance at winning the National Title.

BCS Executive Director Bill Hancock took to Yahoo! Sports last week to once again defend the BCS against its many, many detractors.

The sport is thriving. College football works and works well, because of its unique regular season and because of the bowl tradition and bowl experience for the student-athletes...As the person who managed the NCAA men’s basketball tournament for 13 years and who now administers the BCS college football championship game, I think the differences among the sports should be celebrated, not vilified.

Fine, let's celebrate. Let's celebrate what Hancock loves about the BCS. Hancock believes in the BCS because he thinks the BCS is a fair system that works.

So if that's the case, you have to wonder...What If Everything Worked Like The BCS?

Special shout-out and thank you to everyone who helped make the video.
