Ohio State's Urban Meyer calls the BCS a 'flawed system'

Ohio State Buckeyes’ head coach Urban Meyer knows a lot about lobbying. Back in 2006, his comments helped the Florida Gators leap ahead of the Michigan Wolverines on the final weekend of the year and eventually knock off the Ohio State Buckeyes to win the national championship.

Now with his unbeaten Buckeyes ranked third and with no real chance to move up (In fact, the fourth-ranked Baylor Bears will likely jump the Buckeyes if they continue to win), Meyer has turned to criticizing the entire 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 told Austin War of 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.

Meyer’s Buckeyes are just two wins away from a second consecutive perfect season. They’ll host the Indiana Hoosiers are 3:30 pm EST Saturday.
