A crown, but little royalty

Capping what I said the other night about the BCS championship ...

I refer to Bob Ryan's excellent column after the game ...

Please, don’t get me started on the inanity and uselessness of the foolish bowl games that feature 7-5 and 6-6 teams, and that includes the one Boston College played in the night before the Big Game. So many of them are despicable scams, and colossal money losers for the participants. If you care even a little about the topic, you owe it to yourself to seek out the excellent book, “Death to the BCS,’’ by the Yahoo! Sports triumvirate of Dan Wetzel, Josh Peter, and Jeff Passan.

That the world does not need these ridiculous bowl games is beyond dispute. The postseason college football calendar needs to be revised. The latest this BCS championship game should have been played was Monday, Jan. 3.

Oh, it gets better. Read on.
