Much was made this week about the BCS selection process, or lack thereof. While the top two teams, arguably, made the BCS national championship, we at least know Nos. 1 and 2 will play. After that? A train wreck, with perfectly suitable at-large teams lined up and available but then scattered across the tracks by a tornado of terrifying arrogance and system disregard.
The carnage struck home, of course, for Kansas State director of athletics John Currie, who, as part of a panel discussion, voiced his flat abhorrence for how things shook out, and what it may as well moving forward. Currie also took blame for K-State getting passed over by Virginia Tech for the Sugar Bowl - something he shouldn't have to own. This wasn't a ball dropped by the K-State administration. The good ol' boy network simply took the ball and went home, leaving many deserving teams wanting.
