This New Year’s Eve Weekend with Saturday in particular should be a GLORIOUS day for Major College Football in the United States of America…
…instead of This Weekend, This Saturday, December 31, 2011 being the…
That would determine the two teams that would play for a Legitimate NCAA National Championship in I-A (FBS) Football using the same system used by EVERY other sport in Intercollegiate Athletics in America, A Postseason Playoff Tournament, the college football world is facing a “series” of Meaningless Exhibition Games that Mean Nothing at all and the kicker….
These “Series” of Meaningless Exhibition Games that Mean Nothing At All will cost OUR college football programs and OUR schools…
Hundreds of Millions of Dollars THIS YEAR!
If one just made up the Bogus BCS no one would believe the Stupidity, the Idiocy and how Completely Un-American it is for any athletics in America to be playing Meaningless Exhibition Games that Mean Nothing At All instead of winning and earning the National Championship on the Field of Play….
BUT then now
….have you ever looked into the BIG Candy Asses the people behind the Bogus and Un-American really are?
If you have then you know why the Bogus and Un-American BCS exists then….
Yes, this should be FINAL FOUR Saturday with the TWO National Semi-Final Games being played on….
…when college football games should be played with the TWO winning teams advancing to play in the….
NCAA I-A (FBS) National Championship Game
…next Saturday….yes…..SATURDAY….January 7, 2012.
The FINAL FOUR in I-A (FBS) Football with TWO Games involving (Assuming there were no upsets in the Postseason Tournament which no one should assume since the top 30 or so teams in college football could beat each other on any given Saturday which is why the Major College Football should play the games because it is Very Damn Important to Play the Games to determine the TRUE and NCAA Champion)….
Wisconsin vs. LSU
Alabama vs. Oklahoma State
Now those would be two GREAT FOOTBALL GAMES that….
Actually MEAN SOMETHING!
And are actually….American.
Yes, enjoy those Meaningless Exhibition Games today but don’t let your mind forget that if Major College Football wasn’t controlled by some of the Biggest Candy Asses in America combined with some of the Greediest Bastards in America and tossed in with a few of the Sorriest SOBs in America today would be a Grand Day to be an American and a College Football Fan.
Wisconsin vs. LSU in first National Semi-Final Game
Alabama vs. Oklahoma State in the second National Semi-Final Game
With the two winners of the above games playing next SATURDAY for the…
NCAA National Championship in I-A (FBS) Football
And the above would add an additional $500 Million Dollars in the coffers of our college football programs and college athletic departments….THIS YEAR!
Yes, it takes some Very Stupid People to support the Bogus and Un-American BCS and that is exactly what we have here folks!
The Real OUTRAGE with the Gordon Gee being happy that Jim Tressel didn’t fire him
As was pointed out by a Coaches Hot Seat member at dinner on Friday night we failed to mention in our blog post yesterday the real OUTRAGE of Ohio State president Gordon Gee saying on March 8, 2011 that….
Gordon Gee: “I just hope the coach doesn’t dismiss me.”
….and that OUTRAGE is that the supposed leadership of the Ohio State University found out in January 2011 that Jim Tressel had received emails that alerted him to activities by OSU football players in the spring of 2010 that would have made those OSU football players ineligible for the 2010 football season and for any postseason game, BUT Jim Tressel did not tell anyone at Ohio State about those emails (at least that is Ohio State’s story) either before the season or before the Sugar Bowl and it was actually only a leak to the media that forced the March 8, 2011 press conference where Ohio State University had to admit that it had learned in January that Jim Tressel had LIED to the people at Ohio State and had LIED to the NCAA investigators and had pretty much LIED to anyone that entered his field of vision about what and when he knew about some of his OSU players, including Terrelle Pryor, being ineligible to play football.
Ohio State and the OSU president Gordon Gee learned in JANUARY that Jim Tressel was BIG FAT LIAR and on….
On March 8, 2011 when Gordon Gee said…
“I just hope the coach doesn’t dismiss me.”
…Gee knew that the head football coach at Ohio State had LIED on multiple occasions to people at Ohio State and to the NCAA and that Moron Gordon Gee still believed that Jim Tressel should keep his job and that he was just happy that….
“….the coach doesn’t dismiss me.”
We have a news flash for that Moron Gordon Gee and everyone else at Ohio State that if the head football coach or any coach at Stanford LIES or doesn’t forward an email to the administration at Stanford about the illicit activities of Stanford athletes that will or even might make them ineligible to play on their team and then LIES again so they can play in a postseason football game then within moments that the Stanford University administration found out about those LIES they better either suspend the coach without pay or fire his/her sorry ass because that is what you do when you have a coach that is supposed to be leading our young people LIES to the people he/she works for.
Evidently at The Ohio State University they don’t think that a head coach LYING to his bosses about the illicit activities of his players is that bad of a thing because when the President of The Ohio State University learned that his head coach was a BIG FAT LIAR (unless Jim Tressel has been a sacrificial lamb for other people at Ohio State and if that is true then Tressel should tell the TRUTH pretty soon or Tressel will go down in history as a BIG FAT LIAR) Gordon Gee was just relieved that Jim Tressel didn’t fire him!
Yes, be proud Ohio State alumni because you must be Very Damn Proud of YOUR school president!
The Real Question is: What kind of MORONS are on the Ohio State University Board of Trustees that would keep an IDIOT and a defender of a BIG FAT LIAR (Jim Tressel) like E. Gordon Gee as the president at OSU?
BIG TIME MORONS is the answer to that question.
Be proud alums and fans of Ohio State University and no doubt Gordon Gee is hoping right now that Urban Meyer doesn’t fire his ass in the coming year!
Bravo for the Big Ten – Pac 12 Alliance
Commissioners Jim Delany and Larry Scott deserve credit for coming up with their Big Ten – Pac-12 Alliance (along with former Illinois AD Ron Guenther) which will create some great football games in the coming years between the two conferences’ schools and some terrific matchups in lots of other sports as well.
The Big Ten and Pac 12 have an amazing collection of schools and athletic programs and from where we sit the more competition between the schools in both conferences the better which means for many sports there will be one opponent (in football) or several more quality opponents on the schedule each year which will be thrilled to attend and no doubt will also garner lots of interest from television viewers.
We do have ONE BIG problem with Big Ten commish Jim Delany, his support for the Bogus and Un-American BCS, but on the other important issues of the day in Intercollegiate Athletics….
The importance of conference play
The importance of amateurism and student-athletes
The importance of strong conferences
The importance of strong athletic departments that benefit their schools
The importance of coming up with new ways to promote intercollegiate athletics, like the Big Ten Network, Big Ten Championship Game and this Big Ten – Pac-12 Alliance
With ALL of the above leading to strong institutions of higher learning in America which will hopefully continue to grow and get stronger in the coming years as they educate and train our young people and most importantly teach them how to…THINK
….we are almost in complete agreement with Jim Delany on and in a lot of ways that Delany doesn’t know about we work in the background and behind the scenes to promote the many things that Delany is also working on in quiet ways far from public view. Yes, there are a lot of very bad things going on in and around Intercollegiate Athletics right now that need to be cleared-out, cleaned-up and done away with, but there are also lots of very strong and positive stories about the 99 percent of student-athletes that work hard in the classroom and on the playing field and do the right things in the community and once the muck, scum and sorry Bastards have been removed, warned sufficiently and/or put in their place the average sports fan and American People will start to realize what a treasure our young student-athletes are and how much they add to the life of OUR nation.
That we agree completely with the Big Ten – Pac-12 Alliance does not mean we are against the recent conference expansion though because we believe that the Big Ten adding Nebraska, the ACC adding Pitt and Syracuse and the SEC adding Texas A&M and Missouri were great moves made by commissioners that were looking with their college presidents and athletic directors into the future to try and solidify their conferences and schools as much as possible for the long-term which is exactly what those commissioners, college presidents and athletic directors should be doing in their jobs.
One thing we do believe in here at Coaches Hot Seat is supporting OUR schools, athletic departments and sports teams as much as possible either through direct monetary donations or by attending games/sporting events in person which can often be a big of a shot in the arm as anything for the coaches and players that work so hard during practice to field winning and championship teams. We can tell everyone from personal experience there is nothing like coming out onto a playing field in college and seeing a big crowd that has turned out to support and what their team play and fans of college sports teams whether they are graduated from the school or not should proudly support and turn-out for that school’s sporting events and make sure the coaches and student-athletes know they have support for the good work they are doing in their lives.
We have thought that since Larry Scott arrived to takeover that Pac-12 that the future looked bright and this Big Ten – Pac-12 Alliance only adds to that bright future which we can see setting up lots of football, basketball, baseball, golf, tennis, etc. games/matches/sporting events in the near future that will be chomping at the bit to attend and watch on television.

Clearly, one of the issues that had to be discussed when the above schedules were being drawn up was the idea of the SEC Conference moving to 9 conference games instead of the 8 conferences games the schools now play and no doubt there were lots of athletic directors (and the head football coaches crying over the phone) that were objecting to the idea of playing 9 conference games that would lead to…
5 home conference games
4 away conference games
And then the NEXT YEAR playing
4 home conference games
5 away conference games
…which the athletic directors will no doubt claim will cost their schools $3 or $4 million dollars in ticket sales by replacing an away conference game with a home game against a non-conference foe (usually a Cupcake team that SEC teams have no business playing like Alabama playing I-AA Western Carolina in Tuscaloosa in 2012), but what those athletic directors need to understand is that delivering…
5 SEC conference opponents at home EVERY OTHER YEAR
5 SEC conference road games EVERY OTHER YEAR
…is much better than playing some of these pitiful teams that are now on some of these SEC football teams’ schedule like the Complete Idiocy of the University of Alabama playing I-AA Western Carolina in Bryant-Denny Stadium next season.
That is Beyond Stupid!
Besides, that $3 to $4 million dollars that the schools would lose by playing 5 conference games on the road EVERY OTHER YEAR will easily be made up with what the SEC Conference will make in more Dollars in the coming years from the renegotiation of its TV contracts with ESPN and CBS.
If we were a SEC Conference athletic director right now we would tell our head football coach to quit crying, Buck-Up and start acting like a REAL man and recommend a move to playing 9 SEC conference football games that would have….
5 home conference games
4 away conference games
And then the NEXT YEAR playing
4 home conference games
5 away conference games
…which would make their fans and ticket buyers Very Damn Happy and college football fans around the country also Very Damn Happy because we would get to see every SEC team play ONE more SEC game each season!
Oh, that would be GREAT!
Come on SEC Conference (and Big Ten for that matter)…
Play 9 Conference Games!
The Pac-12 was playing 9 Conference Games before they expanded to 12 teams and they are playing 9 Conference Games right now and it is exciting as Hell to play….
9 Pac-12 Conference Games
3 Out-of-Conference Games
…and playing 9 Conference Games just makes the Pac-12 teams and players that much stronger, tougher and that much more ready for the challenges that come both during and after their college playing days.
Memo to SEC commish Mike Slive, the SEC presidents and ADs: Play 9 SEC Conference Games each year and watch the SEC get even stronger.
