As fond as I am of criticizing sports journalists, I had to applaud the AP's request that they be removed from the BCS formula. Anything that helps to promote the ultimate collapse of the charade that is the BCS is welcome.

That said, their reasons for this move are laughable.

"We should report the story, not BE the story." Ahhh yes. How shall I count the ways in which journalistic integrity has become an oxymoron.

The truth is, the BCS' flaws are becoming obvious. It is increasingly difficult for anyone to even pretend that this system is reasonable. What organization wants to be a part of such a clear sham!?

Mainly, it's hard to criticize the BCS, which is becoming the over-riding story here, when you are a key part of the system's flawed results.
