The BCS can’t get any worse can it?

Apparently the answer is 'yes.'

For the first time since 2005, the final regular-season ballots for the USA Today coaches' poll will not be disclosed to the public beginning in 2010, the paper reported, citing an anonymous source.

You'll remember that the coaches' poll is one of three polls used to calculate the BCS ratings, the problem is it's been proven that the coaches intentionally rig the poll in their favor so it's unfortunate that it's part of the process in the first place but add in the prospect of anonymity and it just becomes absurd. If you think Steve Spurrier gives himself a big bump in the polls now, just wait till he doesn't have to show his vote. The BCS apologists say that the controversy surrounding the polls is a good thing but controversy like this is just plain silly, the system sucks.
