Joe: There was only one way to resolve the mess atop the Big 12 leaderboard this season; let this guy decide. Whatever school he enrolls at is the one for me. He brings a cannon for an arm, a hot girlfriend and a wacky best friend along for the ride. He’d make a heckuva more interesting Heisman candidate than any of the three system QBs at the top of the Big 12 heap. (You know Joe cares little about Big 12 and BCS silliness when he resorts to championing a third-rate 1988 screwball football “comedy” starring Anthony Michael Hall over some of the most historic statistical seasons in NCAA football history.
Chris: Now that that is settled, I will be able to have successful bowel movements once more.
Brad: There is almost no fair way to resolve it. Texas beat Oklahoma, Texas Tech beat Texas, and Oklahoma murdered Texas Tech. The problem is going to be resolved by strength of schedule and margin of victory. Texas and Oklahoma will get BCS bids, and Texas Tech will probably get the Cotton Bowl. Texas or Oklahoma will play the winner of the SEC Championship for the National Championship. The issue could have been resolved much easier if the Texas secondary knew how to tackle.
Ralphie: I think they should have to play a series of games against each other til there is one winner, until one team beats both the other teams. Maybe that’s too much.
Chris: If Coach Jim Mora were around, he would type “PLAYOFFS?! Are you kidding me? PLAYOFFS?!”
Ralphie: I don’t really like or dislike the BCS. I don’t know much about what it does except that it is like the government of the college football.
Brad: I think BCS stands for BullCrapSauce. I’d like to see more than 12 games a year and a reasonable playoff tournament of the top 16 teams. It would give me much more to do over the holidays. The top 16 teams would still be selected by the BCS. A tournament just makes it more fair to me.
Joe: I want the old “Brad” back. I have a lot of Ohio State BCS jokes with nobody to insult.
Brad: NO, NO, NO, you did not just go there.
Joe: In light of the economic downturn, it’s good that data analysts for the NCAA will retain their employment status. Other than that, I think it’s a gimmick statistical formula that is inherently bad for the game. When a team is throwing 50-yard bombs on first down with less than five minutes left in the game (while holding a 55 – 20 lead) just to add a couple of fractions of a point to their BCS rating, something is wrong with the system. Just for that reason alone, I cannot root for the Oklahoma Sooners.
Chris: Teams could just resolve to kidnapping the other team’s mascot. This is how Texas A&M has been able to compile an impressive, overall record of 36-74-5 against the University of Texas, by pilfering Bevo.
Brad: Doesn’t matter, buddy, the winner of the SEC would take down your Shorthorns anyway!
Ralphie: I guess Florida is ok, but I like Texas Tech.
Joe: What do you know? You weren’t even born when Joe Paterno was on his eighth hip operation.
Brad: Texas or Oklahoma vs. Bama or Florida. You can’t go wrong with any of these game scenarios. No matter what you’re going to be thankful for one heck of a college football game. Unless you’re Texas Tech, of course.
Joe: Since my two beloved teams, the Southeastern Louisiana Lions and East Jesus Western Tech Fighting Squirrels, didn’t win enough games to qualify for the BCS title game, I guess I have to choose a new school to root for. That’s why I’m rooting for the lil’ underdog, a team that overcame insurmountable odds to make it to the title game. The Florida . . . errr, ummm . . . well, on second thought.
Ralphie: Can you stay awake for the whole game?
Chris: Other than upsetting the official BCS Apple Cart brought to you by Woodrow’s Cesspool Company by having a playoff system, one alternative is to let the only two undefeated teams in the Top 25 play. Having Utah and Boise State compete for the title would provide unparalleled ecstasy to supporters of Texas, Alabama, USC, Penn State, Texas Tech and any other of establishment of higher education whose football team felt violated by the BCS computer. Does anyone know if Dave Bowman is still capable of killing computers?
Ralphie: Do you even know what you are talking about?
Brad: I don’t like a whole lot about the BCS. The layoff between games at the end of the year is not cool. Nuff said.
Joe: Maybe I’ll just throw in a fourth-rate football comedy on April 9 (or whenever the BCS Title Game is eventually played) instead.
