    this book is the reason we need a playoff system in CFB

    as soon as i read the preface i thought to myself, " man this is going to be good" and believe you me, it was the best read i have read in a great reading while. i could not put it down especially when they started talking about the money these greedy guys make and who is all involved in the process of picking #1 and #2 teams. it makes perfect sense why the BCS does not want a playoff system. its the only book i could find that talks about the BCS as well. a must read for any CFB fan or my name isnt orville redenbacher....wait...its not......its razorback_fan

    Well researched, good read.

    This book will throw a lot of big numbers, incomes, and expense accounts at you right away, and it's almost too overwhelming. But later in the book gets in to different situations in the past where a playoff system could have made a difference. Aside from all the dollar figures thrown at you during the first 4 chapters it's really nothing most people didn't already know. I will say if you are already not a fan of the BCS this book will only fuel your anger even more.

    Persuasive

    Tells in detail why NCAA Division 1 football needs a playoff like every other college sport. Authors are blunt-spoken, but the facts they lay out show why they need to be.

    Yes!!!!

    I was on the fence about the BCS, then I bought this book. It is such a true book and I think everyone who reads this will agree the BCS is a corrupt system that needs to be replaced with a playoff.

    2 thumbs down

    Really hated the way this book was written.Reminded me of political propaganda,every other paragraph seemed to start with the phrase "they want you to believe".Too radical,not a good way to rally support for a cause.

    Death to BCS: Life for December Delirium

    This book will be the catalyst for the revolution necessary to fix the absurd, corrupt BCS system, and to prosecute its 'fat cat suits'. They are robbing college football of the "December Delirium" (a legitimate playoff) that the teams and fans deserve.
