Arbitrary Randomness

As they continue to tweak the BCS formula, is it just me, or does it keep getting closer and closer to the way we had it before.....the average of the two polls.

You're absolutely right, but it's to be expected. We get most all of our football information from the media. The media's role in deciding a Champ was diminished with the creation of the BCS formula. Instead of trying to explain the computers and their merit, it is easier to just say "I don't understand the computers." The coaches are just as guilty of this. At least with the computers, the methodologies are all published and documented so that it can be understood. The coach and media ballots aren't available for us to scrutinize, only the aggregate (I give credit to the journalists who publish their ballots).
