Hockey pet peeve: "when a teammate tips a puck in on you, which is exactly how my first collegiate goal against happened. Thanks, Copper."
There is an interesting article in the Wall Street Journal about congress deciding the fairness of the BCS System.

Whenever the BCS comes up there is always a lot of talk and a lot of disagreement between what is "fair" and what is best for college football. I think most college football fans would agree that a playoff would be ideal. The argument against of course being it takes away from the most meaningful regular season in all of sports, where all of a sudden one or 2 losses doesn't knock a team out of a chance to win the national championship. I agree that a 16 or 32 team playoff takes a bit away from the regular season, and all of a sudden that O$U U$C game doesn't mean as much early in the season. Maybe there is a way to get the best of both worlds...
Thus, my proposal: How bout a 4 team playoff? The 4 best teams in the country in a semi final and a final. Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't remember there being a year where more than 4 teams had a legitamate beef about getting snubbed out of the BCS title game. With 4 teams fighting for the chance at the championship, the regular season remains just as important, while the Utah or Boise State of the season that goes undefeated will have a chance to earn a spot in the National Championship game even if they are 4th in the BCS rakings
