I’ve posted video below of a television ad that criticizes the Bowl Championship Series and will run in selected cities Thursday night before the ABC telecast of Alabama vs. Texas in the BCS Championship game.
(Might wanna backoff on the powder next time)
The ad was paid for by Playoff PAC, a federal political action committee dedicated to setting up a college football playoff system. The AUSTIN AMERICAN-STATESMAN reports the ad will run in local markets Dallas, Boise and Salt Lake City before the BCS title game on Fox:
Coincidentally, those markets cover undefeated teams that have been snubbed in the past two years by the BCS championship — Boise State, Texas Christian and Utah.
As you might expect, the spot notes the undefeated status of TCU and Boise State and lampoons BCS Executive Director “Baghdad” Bill Hancock.
While I’d have appreciated a little of this spliced in there, the spot gets the job done.
For those of you video-impaired, here’s the title sequence:
THEY WENT UNDEFEATED
THEY AREN’T PLAYING FOR THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP
THE BCS RESPONSE?
BCS Executive Director Bill Hancock: YOU HAD A GREAT SEASON. NOT EVERYBODY CAN PLAY.
YOU HAD A GREAT SEASON
NOT EVERYBODY CAN PLAY
THEY CAN, IT’S CALLED A PLAYOFF
