A blind e-mail from an anonymous source revealed that, in a secret meeting an at undisclosed location, the unnamed figures in the BCS shadow hierarchy have decided the formula will now be changed again. On a weekly basis.
Under this new "Flexible Formula," the decimals will be tweaked each Sunday to produce the BCS rankings that produce the least controversial top two and the most TV-friendly at-large teams. To accomplish that, the six computers used in the rankings will be hacked into and reprogrammed weekly. If that doesn't work, the pollsters will be strong-armed into changing their ballots, then forced to sign sworn statements that no such coercion took place. The plan will be incorporated into the fine print of the Patriot Act so it can't be assailed.
