As the 2011 college football season winds to a close, teams are jockeying for position to wind up in the top two in the BCS. Emphasis on the B and the S.
Until the powers that be admit that a playoff system is the way to go, college football fans are stuck with the current nonsense.
Supporters of the BCS maintain that the best two teams always end up playing anyway, but that’s not true. Fully half of the teams that have played in the big game since the 1998 season would have been mighty lucky to have survived a playoff bracket, and part of being a champion is stepping up when it counts.
Twelve weeks into the season, it’s time for us to step up and let you know who’s gonna lose this week. No “gimme” games this week. Okay, maybe a couple. But we are altering the format slightly. Still picking games from my state (Georgia), Harvey’s state (Wisconsin), and Frank’s state (Iowa, Idaho, one of them states out there). Still picking matchups between Top 25 teams. And, instead of only-game-on matchups, we’ll look at the teams in the BCS hunt.
If you don’t care for college football, you got an alternative: the new Twilight movie is out and you and the rest of the girls and Nancy Boys can go watch it. The men and the really cool chicks will be watching college football.
