Reward the champion, not a media darling

It isn't difficult to understand why the NCAA is so hesitant to change from their current BCS system. Rather than reward only one national champion, dozens of teams are rewarded for their successful seasons with bowl games, every singe week of the college football season matters, and of course the real reason -- the millions of dollars gained throughout the bowl season.
Until the NCAA is willing to devise a playoff system, however, college football will continue to be wracked with controversy. The seemingly perfect scenario for BCS proponents is occurring this year. Undefeated No. 1 Alabama playing undefeated No. 2 Texas. Winner, of course, takes all.
And yet, even if Alabama or Texas dominates the game, it will not take long for some to question the validity of their championship. Boise State, after all, is undefeated, as well.
And while I do not believe the Broncos could beat Alabama or Texas, to not give them a chance is wrong.
What can college football learn from the NFL?
They can adhere to the spirit of competition that has made sports such a valued aspect of life. They can crown a winner based on merit (like every other major sport) rather than hype.
