The Boise St. Broncos have been on the outside looking in when it comes to the BCS. 2004 and 2008 they were left out because they were behind the Utah Utes when they were part of the non-AQ ranks, and then were overlooked in 2010 and 2011. The last two year Boise State missed a field goal to win those games and to go to the BCS, but they ended up ranked higher than the Big East and ACC champion in both years.
Head coach Chris Petersen has been quiet long enough and is now lashing out against the BCS:
I'm really tired of the BCS, even [its] name ... I think everybody is just tired of the BCS. Everybody's frustrated. I don't think anyone is happy anywhere ... The whole thing needs to be changed, there's no question about it.
Probably the best model is something like the basketball guys do, where you get a committee ... And then you play a plus-one, you get the top four teams. That's subjective, but at least it's closer ... 6, 7, 8, and 9? Why are we even voting?
Nobody likes it, nobody understands it, everybody thinks it needs to be changed, so hopefully it will be.
It just seems like each year it's getting further and further away from anybody understanding what's going on.
