Florida State Football: Jimbo Fisher Blasts the BCS and the New Plus One

Melina Vastola-US PRESSWIRE

Well…

It has taken until Week 12, but the first College Football Head Coach has finally snapped on the BCS Rankings.

And it is none other than 10th-ranked Florida State Seminoles Head Coach Jimbo Fisher

But who would blame him, right?

The ‘Noles have done everything it needed to do for ACC Football and Fisher is fed up with the fact the entire SEC keeps moving past FSU.

And to say he is frustrated is an understatement…

It has since been edited, but Fisher even called the whole process, “Retarded”, to which he quickly contacted the media with a statement apologizing for using the term.

Take a listen for yourself…

A couple of quick points…

Fisher is dead on with his comments that the current system and the new system doesn’t solve anything. There will always be team left out of the mix.

That is just a fact.

The truth is the SEC is built for the BCS and the future playoff…

The ACC is not…

The other great point Fisher makes is in regards to the Coaches Poll versus the Associated Press Poll…

There is not a writer in the world that knows football better than any Head Coach in College Football just like there is not a coach who knows who the best writer in the industry is day in and day out.

Just because the media, this guy included, can watch every game in detail doesn’t make them more educated in their evaluation of the best teams in college football.

Now, Fisher does need to take ownership of his strength of schedule, but if teams like the Virginia Tech Hokies, the North Carolina State Wolfpack, the Miami Hurricanes and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets do a better job in taking care of their business on the field the computers sure would love the ACC better than it does currently.

The ‘Noles and Fisher fate could be different if they would have showed up in the second half against the Wolfpack too…

But all in all, kudos to Fisher…

It’s been too quiet this season and everyone was missing the rants like David Bennett from last year…
