Urban Meyer: BCS is ‘Flawed System’

National Sports

Kirk Irwin/Getty Images(COLUMBUS, Ohio) — Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer has his team seeking another undefeated season in his second year in Columbus, but right now the team is on the outside looking in at a national championship game.

Meyer’s team sits at No. 3 in the BCS rankings, which is in its final year before the college football playoff system is put in place next season. He was asked how he feels about the current system.

“Without spending much time on it, because it’s not fair to our team for me to spend much time on it, I will say this — I think it’s a flawed system,” Meyer said Monday. “But when you logically think about what the BCS people have done, and which obviously we’re all part of, I think it was great for a while. I think you take an imperfect system and you do the best you can without hosting a playoff.

“I imagine there’s going to be controversy with the playoffs too, now. It’s not a 64-team playoff; you can only have four guys. What’s that fifth team going to feel like?”

Ohio State will play against Indiana (4-6) on Saturday before closing the season on the road against Michigan (7-3).
