|Those Sports Guys||
In the words of the immortal Larry the Cable Guy "Lord I apologize" How dare I ever question the BCS system and how it selects team. How dare I suggest that Alabama deserves a BCS bid, or Oklahoma. And what was I thinking suggesting that a team like Utah was in the same caliber of the likes of BCS contenders. What was I thinking!?! Obviously, I was not in a right state of mind. So Lord please be with all those unfortunate schools who lost.
We all remember Dennis Greens famous speech "They were who we thought they were"... Well... you weren't who I thought you were. You had all the sexy stats. High scoring offense, a couple wins against "Big 6" conference teams. I had faith in you, and I love the underdog story. I knew TCU was ganna beat you. That was no surprise... but you guys didn't just get beat... what TCU did to you was more like abuse. They made you look like... well everyone else that they beat on a regular basis because they are one of, if not, the top team in the country, but that is for another time and place. But then you went into South Bend, spirits low, pride hurting to play the Irish... and...you... lost... I apologize to all the Irish fans out there, but the Irish haven't been a "good team" since the Brady Quinn Era. You were the #5 team in the country. Things were looking up... and in 2 weeks... the coleslaw hit the fan and everything fell apart. I was drinking the Kool-Aid I guess, but I love the underdog story. And you are hurting 1 of the 2 non-BCS schools with a real shot at a BCS title! "You're killin me smalls!" Utah, I thought you had it in you, and I was wrong... Lord, I apologize.
Roll Tide Roll? You are the best team in the nation... You are the reigning champs... You have one of the best players in the country... and you keep losing... What is the problem? I mean really. Yes, you are in the S.E.C. Yes, you play a tough schedule... But you did it alright last year... and you are better than then... You lost to both LSU and South Carolina who are pretty good teams, but you still have Auburn in your future, and I'm no psychic, but i see another loss in your future... I know I had faith in you but I see that that faith was misplaced and for that... Lord, I apologize.
Ok, when I picked a bright and shining future ahead of you... I assumed you could handle the 3 straight unranked opponents... I guess I was wrong... I mean at least the other guys lost to ranked teams... you guys couldn't even managed that... Yes, the Big East is a tougher conference then oh the mountain west, but COME ON! Wisconsin hung 83 on Indiana last week, you could at least get a W against A&M (yes, I realize A&M is better than IU... but still). Teams in the top 10 are there for a reason... and you choked. For the last time in this article... Lord I Apologize.
Ok, so I realize, these were mistakes anyone could make and well... I made all of them. All I can say is GO BSU and TCU.
