The BCS Takes Its First Misstep

The BCS Guru, one of our trusted partners in crime, is back. He's taking a look at 10 (long?) years of the Bowl Championship Series, starting with a relatively controversy-free coronation of Tennessee as the national champion in 1998.

Oh yes, Tulane was 11-0 and got snubbed, and Kansas State, which finished third in the final BCS standings, found itself in the non-BCS Alamo Bowl. But would the BCS have been better off starting with a plus-one format featuring matchups of Tennessee vs. Ohio State and Florida State vs. Kansas State?
