Five Reasons the BCS Sucks

Well, the season is pretty much over. Just a few bowl games left to go, and as usual the BCS and the media hates the SEC. So here are five good reasons the BCS computers should be recycled and 90 percent of all sports announcers should be drug in to the street and shot.

1. Georgia falls two spots after not playing? How often does this happen? Ohio State had two weeks off and they moved up? Who was it that Ohio played this year? Um...yeah, I can't think of a team they played worth their salt either.

2. Strength of schedule not factored in. I know...our insanely overpaid announcers say strength of schedule is factored in. If that's the case, explain Kansas to me. They said last night on the BCS announcements that Kansas was ranked 109 out of 119 teams in college football in terms of schedule strength and the only ranked opponent they beat was a then number 24 ranked team whose name escapes me. Oh yeah...BECAUSE THEY SUCK TOO!! So Mizzou gets screwed when their strength of schedule is 24th in the nation according to these magical computers. Bottom line, strength of schedule is not factored in by these mysterious machines.

3. USC is over-rated. If they dress out and lose five ball games, Pete Carrol still says "Oh yeah...we're going to the Rose Bowl this year." And they do. Every fucking time. They usually make it a point to play an SEC team, but they pic Ole Miss or someone that's having a bad year and stomp them mercilessly so the BCS computers can magically compute that the SEC isn't as good as USC. Sure, Pete Carrol is probably a good coach, and I'd be happy if he came to Auburn to coach. But that team is over-rated as hell. Furthermore, USC and Ohio States conferences blow. I think the SEC should break up and we should all join similar conferences. We should play Agnes Scott, William and Mary, UTC, and the Ivy League schools. Oh yeah...that didn't work out so well for Michigan and Notre Dame this year did it? It's because once again...their conferences blow. Yes, I know Notre Dame is independent.

4. Hawaii got screwed. Really? How? Ask Kansas. Sure, Kansas is a one loss team, but who did they play? I think when Va. Tech beats them like a salvation army drum the BCS computers should then be set on fire. There is no reason for Kansas to be ranked ahead of Hawaii just because they're Kansas. What the fuck is in Kansas anyway? Nothing...not even good football.

5. Georgia got hosed. Why? Well, last year when everyone raved out Michigan and Ohio State and how it was possible that they would play for the title, Urban Meyer spoke up. Sure, these ass clown announcers said Meyer just whined his way in to the title game, but what happened? They handed Ohio State their ass and hoisted the BCS trophy. So this year would have been a perfect time to see LSU and Georgia. In my opinion they're the two best teams in the country and we play in the hardest conference on the planet. We always get screwed because we play each other and you never know on any given Saturday if you're going to get beaten by your rival or if you're going to win. That's the thing about USC and Ohio State. They know when they play Agnes Scott, and William and Mary that they're going to win. In the South we have tradition, and rivalries, and tailgating. Does the BCS factor that in? No. Because the BCS is a scam designed to make sure USC, Ohio State, Michigan, and Notre Dame stay in the top five all year. I think as soon as Les Miles (hopefully) beats the shit out of Ohio State worse than Florida did, he needs to beat the shit out of the BCS computers, and every announcer that has said they didn't deserve a shot because he was in the SEC. Give me one good reason...and I mean GOOD reason, that LSU and Georgia shouldn't be in the title game and maybe I'll change my mind...but not likely.

That's my rant for today. Fuck the BCS computers, Ohio State, USC, Michigan, and anybody else that thinks these magical decision making computers are worth the plastic that holds them together. This is an insult to the players, the coaches, and the fans. As Pat Forde said we're "being sold swampland disguised as beach front property." I think he just said that to be nice because his blog is edited while mine is not.

Couldn't have worded it better myself (especially the "drug into the street and shot" suggestion...I think I have heard that somewhere else before...)! ;) In a perfect world there would be no bullshit BCS and we'd have a playoff system that would undoubtedly result in the deserving teams (and by that I mean SEC teams) leading the pack and USC watching the bowl games from their dorm rooms, as they should be every year...

I have heard all of this over and over from Jason....he gets so infuriated just talking about it.
