FWIW. Michigan doesn't seem inclined to get re-involved.
Starts with Champ game, then other BCS. How long they drag it out, I'm not sure.
Just sitting back with a cup of hot jasmine tea enjoying this moment. Before the start of the season, NO WAY someone could have convince me Michigan,would be BCS bound...a very good,timely turn of events the last eleven months.
No harm in that is there?
I didn't want to make an apology thread, so I just want to apologize here for posting that Bama pic. Serving in the military for 4 years, I promised to protect this country from enemies foreign and domestic. So, I don't take lightly anyone making a mockery of the Oklahoma City Bombing. I believe in publically denouncing people like that, so they know their actions were wrong. Once again, I do apologize greatly.
You're a good guy, WolverineInABag. Takes character to say that. Accepted by me.
Not anyone of the mgousers could have predicted this...just sayin!
I once posted a Jonestown/Kool Aid Man pic. Comedy is tricky. Knowing when you went a little too far and not defending it blindly is the thing. Mistakes happen. Owning them like you are makes the difference.
Godamnit I love Brady Hoke. He really does poop gold huh.
Right now, Adam Schefter is discussing Tebow and the virtues of starting bad QBs, and Chris Berman is trying very hard to make his act still interesting...
I wish he would shut the f-ck up.
OK STATE OK STATE OK STATE
An hour ago. Go blue! Beat va tech in the Sugar.
that sucks. Get ready for another 9-6 eye bleeder, I may have to make other plans for that night.
Crock of shit
Blerg for the game. Good for my bowl trip.
Screw the SEC!
same arguments that were discarded in 2006 are now being made in this case to justify this rematch. What a load of shit.
I'm not going to watch the rematch. I think I'll catch up on Falcon Crest that night instead.
So much smarm. I have never seen two grins eat so much shit.
Gentlemen, gentlemen! You just can't argue with the dominance Alabama showed playing that brutal schedule. They have two wins over teams in the top 25! Two! That's twice as many as one! And think how dominant there defense has looked this season against the Murderer's Row schedule that featured 4 teams with winning records! That's one third of all the teams they played! No Big XII schedule could compare to playing four teams that finished above .500!
And the clincher is how close they lost to LSU! By only three points! If losing a home game doesn't mean you deserve another shot at beating an opponent, then I don't know what the word "deserve" means, I tell you what. Oklahoma State, on the other hand, completely dodged LSU all year. Refused to book them. I'm not about to reward them for not going out an losing a home game to LSU by letting them play against LSU now! We might as well make Southern Miss vs TCU the national championship if we're going to do that.
Look, Oklahoma State had a fine season, but they just exist in a state that wasn't technically part of the confederacy, and when they go out and rectify that and move their campus from Stillwater to Savannah, Georgia, we'll start talking about National Championships in the future.
Saved up, didn't you? ;-)
I couldn't care less about Alabama or OK State. I care about the hypocritical BCS system that rewarded Alabama and f-cked Michigan in 2006.
I plussed this because I read this as sarcasm. You are joking right? I thought this was really well written satire. Please say every exclamation is a cleverly ironic statement meant to show how ridiculous that viewpoint is!
It will be played the same. FG-Fest. Sominex on the field.
If Alabama wins they are the most undeserving national champion ever. It's like a bunch of schools claiming bs national championships in the 50s when they didn't even win their conference.
Huh? If bama beats the undefeated #1, they would be undeserving? I hope we never do that and have someone call us undeserving.
They will have won the championship game. That's how it works. The Packers can go undefeated but if a team who lost 5 times beats them in the super bowl, that team is the champ.
Again if we are ever lucky enough to win the bcs title game I hope everyone has the respect to call us champ.
Doesn't necessarily make them more "deserving." And at least that 5 loss team will have own 3 or 4 games to deserve to get there. Alabama didn't beat Okie State to prove they deserved to be there.
...but the BCS Championship is played at a neutral site.
LSU already beat Alabama at home...Alabama squeaking out a victory at a neutral site doesn't mean anything.
And got fucked.
In 2006 the voters chose a one loss fla over a 1 loss Mich. You can believe that was a bad call but it has nothing to do with whether or not 2011 bama deserves to be selected over 2011 Ok St.
It shows the system changes on the fly. In your example, if they said one year that the team that beat the Packers couldn't play them again because they already lost to them, but then another year they could play them in the Super Bowl, how is that not relevant?
First of all of course the system changes so what? This isn't one guy making the decisions who you call out for changing the rules, this is a group of 180 voters and 6 computers, the voters aren't even all the same and I'd guess the computers get tweaked all the time. Regardless their job every year is to pick the teams they believe are 1 and 2, that's what they did in 2006 and that's what they did this year. They had no obligation to give us a rematch and going forward they have no obligation to give anyone else a rematch or not. They should all teams on their merits.
Comparisons to the NFL are fine when they back up your point, but comparisons are pointless when they contradict your point. Gotcha.
It's not even truly an SEC championship. It's just a division championship. Without a champion opponent from another conference there is no game that can even loosely be called a national championship.
Fuck this bcs shit we lost by 3 on the road to Ohio, Nama loses my 3 at home
not watching the title game, but excited for the sugar bowl
Nonsense national championship. Won't be watching that fucking game again.
Agree. I will be boycotting this game along with 90 percent of the country. Now all we need is Richardson to win the Heisman. Yay.
