Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Drove to work this morning and - swear - it was is snowing like a mutha.

Can't confirm that a frost warning has been issued in Hades, but seems like as good a day as any to try and fix the broken, busted, bad BCS.

My Observer bloggin' buddy Dave Faries has his plan, and I think you'll agree it beats the heck of our current system.

Dave, take it away ...

This system rewards conference champions (so no whining from Boise or the MAC). Large conferences with two divisions send the winner of each division. The number two team from the Big 10 and Pac 10 will usually go, as well. By emphasizing conference titles, we may eliminate those damn cupcake non-conf. schedules.

Anyway, the teams are seeded based loosely on the AP rankings (hell with Harris or the Coaches poll). This is the bracket as it stands now. It may, of course, change.

Drum roll ...

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
