The Lyrics

This is a second helping of BCS-bashing for every American male out there. I read today in the Minneapolis Star Tribune that the majority of BCS conference commissioners are open to some sort of playoff system for the BCS in which bowls not integrated therein would remain intact. I hope that this proposal will be approved, thereby ending Division I-A college football's status as the only non-playoff sport in North America. (England's Champions League soccer is the only other sport in the whole world without a playoff system.) Anyway, I hope you enjoy the following parody of Avalon's "You Were There."
Stanza I.
I wonder why the BCS
Would ever kill the common sense that did remain
In the sport without a playoff all alone.
They all claimed it would work, but they were wrong!

Refrain I.
Is a mess out of control,
Yet they won't do a thing to fix
This, our mess and our punishment that we're bearing now!
The BCS soon will go to hell,
It will go to hell!

Stanza II.
Back in 2003 we saw
How good USC fell victim to the flaws
Of this, the system that was once supposed to save
The game's own champion from the grave!

Refrain II.
Soon was math out of control
Even for all the geeks out there,
Who had made up the formulas that they must destroy
Immediately or else face their hell;
They will face their hell!

So why, through all revisions, did we still hear complaints now
From Boise State and Hawaii and the teams innumerable?
Oh! the BCS made up these lies we've all believed to this day!

Stanza III.
Five years later, little change
To the system that is messing with the game!
We just want a playoff each and every year
To stop the stream of all our tears!

Refrain III.
BCS, BCS, you are in your final hour!
BCS, BCS, you'll die!
You drew the teeth from USC
And left out Auburn gleefully!
Then Berkeley never ever went;
To San Diego they were sent!
The Wolverines were soon left out;
In Pasadena they did pout!
The BCS will surely go to hell
If naught is ever done!

The BCS will surely go to hell...(4x)
The BCS will surely go to hell
If naught is ever done! (2x)
I sure hope that college football starts some sort of playoff soon, at least by 2010!
