Does it get any better than watching college athletes compete for and win the NCAA National Championship….ON THE FIELD OF PLAY?
No, it doesn’t!
It has been great fun watching the College World Series from Omaha over the past couple of weeks and if not for work commitments we would have had more than a couple of Coaches Hot Seat members in that fine city on the Missouri River watching all that great baseball.
If you add in several Coaches Hot Seat members getting together in the High Rockies on a beautiful Tuesday afternoon around a large flat screen TV with a tub of cold beer on ice, chicken wings on the grill, all watching the South Carolina Gamecocks beat the UCLA Bruins for the National Championship and that is American sports at its best.
Pitiful, yes…Pitiful is the word that comes to mind comparing the College World Series and the NCAA Basketball Tournament to the incredibly absurd BCS which is nothing more than a series of meaningless exhibition games followed by a Bogus title game.
Yes, at the Great Rosenblatt Stadium on Tuesday night in the Grand city of Omaha, Nebraska the South Carolina baseball team hoisted the NCAA National Championship Trophy and congratulations to South Carolina for earning that Championship!
Meanwhile in Candy Ass Land….
Meanwhile, there are still a lot of Candy Asses out there in America that are stupid enough to support meaningless exhibition games over settling the college football national championship on the field of play. One thing for sure, one can never underestimate the desire of Candy Asses to make things as Bogus as possible, but then when you have several generations of Americans now that haven’t done anything for their country beyond registering to vote we can confidently call this the Age of the Candy Asses. No wonder the US Soccer team plays like a bunch of Candy Asses…Hell, they don’t know anything different!
For those folks in the Little 10…..
(Actually still called the Big 12….but as a friend of ours in Texas says, a better name for the Big 12 than our Little 10 is….
“Big Tex and the 9 Dwarfs”
Oh, that’s funny, but is Oklahoma a dwarf we ask? Our Texas buddy says, “Anyone that is following around the University of Texas like a homesick hound dog is a DWARF!”
Oh, that’s very funny….
Getting back to the folks in the Little 10….we mean “Big Tex and the 9 Dwarfs” that didn’t already know it, the new Texas Tech head coach Tommy Tuberville is going to tell you exactly what is on his mind and to Hell with the Politically-Correct Bullshit!
“I don’t think this conference will last long because there is too much disparity between all the teams,” Tuberville told host Bill King. “In the SEC, for instance, Vanderbilt makes as much money in the television contract as Florida. Everybody is good with it. Everybody is on the same page. Everyone gets the same votes.
“That doesn’t happen here in the Big 12. We have some teams that get a little bit more money and have a little bit more stroke than some of the other teams. And when that happens, you’re gonna have teams looking for better avenues to leave and reasons to leave.”
Amen to that Tommy, which is exactly what we said after the Candy Asses that popped their heads up a couple of weeks ago to “save” the dysfunctional Little 10……we mean “Big Tex and the 9 Dwarfs,” which was nothing more than a sham to protect “interests” that are actually some of the Biggest Candy Asses on Planet Earth today. In case you don’t know who those folks are, they are the SOBs that like to crown beauty queens and organize parades instead of having Americans settle championships on the field of play.
Yes, the Little 10…..we mean “Big Tex and the 9 Dwarfs” is just a rolling disaster and shame on the large state schools that got down on their hands and knees and kissed the ass of “Big Tex!” Not that anyone at those large state schools know anything but kissing the ass of Big Tex!
Kudos to Tommy Tuberville for speaking his mind and to the folks that are running Texas Tech University we would like to say that over the past decade or so when we have visited Lubbock for football games we have always come away impressed with your institution and we can assure you that there are conferences out there that would be very interested in adding your school to their conference in the future…..
Calm down Bob Stoops! (what you and Saban talked about is Shhhhhhhhhh!)
Brian Kelly and Bob Stoops were on the Paul Finebaum Radio Networkon Tuesday and Kelly was his usual “We are going to put the Fight back in the Fighting Irish” self, but Bob Stoops made a little news when asked about a meeting he had with Nick Saban in the last offseason.
Whoa Nelly…We Mean Bob Stoops!
Who knows what Bob Stoops and Nick Saban discussed when they got together in Tuscaloosa last summer, but we can imagine that two old defensive guys probably talked about how to defeat the spread offense. Coach Stoops said in the above interview that everyone has the tape of everyone else so “we can see what they are doing,” but Bob that doesn’t mean you know what other defensive guys “are thinking” when they are trying to stop the spread!
We don’t know enough about the intricacies of how college defensives stop the spread offense, but Bo Pelini and his brother Carl are doing a lot of the right things on that front and everyone can sure get a tape of Nebraska playing against the spread if they want (Not that we are doubting that Bob and Bo have had many conversations about stuffing the Longhorns!)
From where we sit stopping the spread offense comes down to the same thing that stops most offenses, making the QB as uncomfortable as possible and “Popping Him in the Mouth” as many times as is feasible within the rules! Yes, getting “Popped in the Mouth” or having defenses get after you on every play always gets the quarterback’s attention and look no further than the clamps that Ohio State put on Oregon QB Masoli in the Rose Bowl to prove that point. Oh, that was some good defense…
And only if we could have seen Ohio State play Alabama and Iowa play Boise State and Penn State play Florida…. Yes, that is what would have happened if Men were running College Football, but unfortunately it is the Age of the Candy Asses!
Here’s a song for all the Candy Asses out there by the Great Kenny Rogers!
Buy Me a Rose
What about Kenny and Dolly?
Islands in the Stream
What was it the Great Johnny Carson said to Dolly Parton?
Oh, that’s funny!
Can you really ever go wrong with Don Rickles on the Johnny Carson show? No…NEVER!
What about Don Rickles hosting The Tonight Show with Bob Hope, Bing Crosby and John Wayne dropping in unannounced?
Or Don Rickles hosting The Tonight Show in 1978….
