Georgia could go 13-0 and not have the opportunity to play for a national title? Such is the absurdity of the BCS
The absolute absurdity that is the BCS has seeped so much into college football that people write and we read things these days that just defies all belief and common sense. Tony Barnhart writing in the Atlanta Journal Constitution this morning commenting on the possibly of Georgia going 13-0 wrote:
“Georgia is No. 3 now and based on their play on the field, and the play of Southern Cal and Oklahoma, that is about where the Bulldogs should be. But it is no time for the Bulldawg Nation to panic and think they will be treated like Auburn in 2004.
I will stick with my original position: If Georgia goes 13-0 against that schedule, the Bulldogs will be in the big game. But Georgia will not go 13-0 unless some areas of the team improve.”
Think about the above comments for a second. There actually exists the possibility that if USC and Oklahoma both went undefeated this season that a 13-0 Georgia team would not have an opportunity to play for the national title in ‘08. Sadly, that is a true statement, but try to imagine someone writing that about any other sport in America, that a team that had an undefeated season would not have a chance to play for a title in the postseason. It is impossible to imagine something like that, and that goes to the absolute absurdity of the BCS and its status as the greatest disgrace in sport on the planet.
People need to understand that these BCS Boys are not just the creators and sustainers of the greatest fraud in sports, but they actually take great pride that they are running this very pervasive way to determine a champion and national title holder in the game of college football. Yes, all of these men that sustain the BCS in the face of all logic are evil, because they care little about the massive amounts of effort that is made by college football players year round to hopefully have a chance to play for a championship. Once the BCS Boys pour out their “Bullshit Stew” of polls and computer ranking at the end of the season to choose two teams for their bogus national title game and 8 other teams to play in meaningless exhibition games, the players are then told because of the lust of greed and the thrill of power, thanks for all the effort boys, but you can go to Hell now. We have money to count and bogus exhibition games to play. Is there actually an American citizen that can defend this BCS system as a way to determine the national champion in college football? If there is, our educational system has gone terribly awry, but we interview enough people in our days jobs to know our educational system is not really in the educating business anymore!
There are not a lot of things that are certain these days, but we can count on the BCS Boys to always be standing on the side of their personal greed, lust for power, and utter stupidity. There is just no explaining the BCS with anyone that has an IQ above room temperature, but when one understands that the BCS Boys rather enjoy ripping the heart out of college football players and telling them that they have a right to wallow around in all of their money, the entire debacle that is the college football postseason starts to make sense. We would call the BCS Boys greedy bastards, but that would be doing a disservice to greedy bastards everywhere!
