How is BCF Champion Determined?
« on: November 12, 2018, 12:59:21 PM »

Is it the winner of the Celebration Bowl or is it determined by the final polls? If so, which poll (Sheridan, BoxtoRow,HSRN, BCSP, etc). Are D2 teams factored into the equation?

The past three years the CB has pretty much had a #1 vs #2 scenario so it was fairly easy to determine the champ but that might not be the case this year. I had assumed that it was still determined by the final Sheridan Poll? 


Has anyone seen a Sheridan poll this season?   :shrug:

I guess if you're one to include all hbcu's no matter what division, it could present a problem.

I stopped giving credibility to any one that uses that Antiquated system years ago. Not to mention the sheer stupidity of it when you actually take the time to think about the rationale of it in today's world

Yeah,,,,,,if the poll is going to include FCS and D2 schools in the same pot, I just don't feel it warrants any serious consideration.
Failing to plan is planning to fail.

Bowie State would have to go deep into the playoffs to be considered in the top 3 or 4 in Black College Football.

Thanks,I had no idea they had filed bankruptcy and were no longer involved in sports.

So now back to my original question...... does the Celebration Bowl use their own poll or perhaps Boxtorow?

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants.

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.
