California Football sign now

California finished the 2004-2005 NCAA Division 1A season 10-1, with their only loss to the number 1 team, USC, whom, statistically speaking, they greatly outplayed. They were the only school in the nation's top six both in scoring offense and scoring defense. They finished fourth in both the ESPN/USA Today and AP polls. Based on the votes of over 64 thousand viewers (which can be found at espn.go.com), California has a better team than Texas. Thus, by human standards, California is a far more deserving team than Texas to go to a BCS bowl. The only reason they were not able to go to the Pasadena Rose Bowl is because they finished 6th in the computer rankings of the BCS, which pushed them to 5th in Bowl rankings, pulling them out of the BCS. California in general played football on a level very comparable to USC, Oklahoma, and Auburn, and yet is still denied the right to go to the Rose Bowl, a game traditionally played between the winners of the PAC-10 and the Big-10. Texas also finished with one loss; however, their only loss was to number 2 Oklahoma, who shut them out. This is actually the second year in a row that teams from the PAC-10 have been cheated by the BCS computer systems. As we cannot change the outcome of the bowl bids, we demand that the United States, specifically the BCS to actually give credit to teams even if they are not generally considered powerhouse teams (i.e. California over Texas). I disagree with the lobbying of the Texas coach to the pollsters to gain votes. Finally, public opinion should be taken into greater account in deciding who goes to bowl games in the future. Abolish the BCS computers, or fix them.
