The BCS Stands For What ………… ? ? ?

It’s here, it’s now for all the marbles and I though I must say it I’ve not been overly enamored with what I’ve seen throughout the Bowl Series within collegiate football. Perhaps from a standpoint that I’m amongst a growing group I believe who would desire to see a playoff system within college football. Having the coaches , the press and a back room filled with computer geeks summarily in part make the decision as to who may end up playing in the national championship game does smack of idiocy to begin with. Never mind that the lesser games with their rather superfluous names make about as much sense as having the choice being made by a group of blind people simply using a pin and having the teams’ names being listed on a piece of paper. The whole BCS Championship series is simply nothing more than a money making exercise and that’s simply it. The six major conferences ( ACC , Big 10 , Big 12 , Big East , Pac 10 and SEC) that in essence oversees this rather corrupt system if anything ought to be thankful that they’re allowed to keep up this charade.

While there’s been repeated criticism by members of Congress as to the way that teams are determined and the template put in motion is something of a joke. Any member of Congress wishing to address this situation given the fact that the BCS system has its supporters and detractors within that body smacks of idiocy to begin . Were you aware that the BCS Championship series has its own body of lobbyists up on Capitol Hill in Washington DC in order to safeguard its very existence ? The tax advantages to be attained by the NCAA as well as the BCS as a body and one can see why there’s billions of dollars to be made by both of these bodies who as such state that the interests of the student athletes at heart. Yeah I’ve heard it said also that’s the same belief held by the Medellin drug cartel in Colombia as they simply flood this country with their drugs. So what’s the difference between the BCS , NCAA and the drug cartels of Colombia ? Oh so it’s illegal to smuggle narcotics into this country for ill gotten gains while supplying that ever increasing band of drug users dependent on these narcotics. It’s not exactly stopped the big pharmaceutical companies in acting the way that they’ve been allowed even with the FDA as a conduit . Merely look at the billions made by these companies and the financial windfall it creates for the federal government by way of the taxes ? That’s simply the only difference between the two entities in question and the way that the government views their activities by way of its legality.

The championship game sponsored by Tostitos and to be played between the SEC’s —– Auburn (Tigers) led by Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton and coached by Gene Chizik hope to convey why it is that they’re favored to win this matchup against the Oregon (Ducks). Both teams will have their slew of vociferous supporters up and down the country. And I’ve no doubt that there’ll be a certain East Coast – West Coast bias to this matchup and the feelings to be had between the fans and perhaps the nation at large. If anything these matchups are essentially driven by the appeal of the what the nation’s programmers’ wish to see , in order that they can attain the best returns possible by way of a televised audience.

Oregon for its part coached by Chip Kelly and led by Darron Thomas at quarterback with running back LaMichael James are sure to make this game a competitive one. We may well have been spoiled in recent years by the exploits of the Florida Gators , Texas Longhorns and that of USC but this game could very well match that classic of between the Trojans and Longhorns when they were led by Matt Leinart and Vince Young respectively . Both players in question were able to parlay those feats into careers within the NFL . Young for his part may not be long with the Tennessee Titans where his career has plummeted as fast as a meteorite falling from the sky. Leinart has yet to show his true guile for the NFL and if anything his being coddled while at USC may well have something to do with the fact that he’s yet to meet the expectations that many felt he was capable of.

This game will come down to one of two things how capable both defenses are at stopping the potent offensive threats that either side can display in terms of their respective pass and running attacks. If neither can actually stymie the other in that respect then we could end up with a high scoring game and one wherein yardage could be off the charts. Will it be what the fans want to see at the end of the day ………..who can say ? The national championship games haven’t always been entertaining but they seem to fill that void in airtime that the programmer has no other product at their disposal to display , so make of it what you will.

The Tigers’ Cam Newton despite his off the field issues will be looking to put an emphatic stamp on this season having led his team to the SEC championship game (56-17) and winning the Heisman Trophy with ease. It’d be indicative of the player at this juncture of the season to simply stamp his authority on it by showing why he’s the best college player in the game. Given the recent exploits of Stanford’s Andrew Luck there may well be a great deal more on the line with the perception that Newton could enter the NFL Draft for the untold riches that can be garnered there. Whether or Newton can and will be allowed exploit the weaknesses of the Oregon Ducks will be largely dependent upon the skill-set of that Ducks’ defense.



Picture gallery for your perusal.

Oregon I’ve no doubt will come into this game being viewed as the underdogs by the press , public and no doubt the oddsmakers in Vegas. But I’d dare say that they’re keen to pull off the upset and show the nation what they’re truly capable of. Throughout much of the season Oregon has systematically played uptempo and they’ve literally destroyed some of their opponents almost at will. When tested at times they’ve risen to the occasion in more ways than one, showing their deftness in all phases of the game. This game will be a battle of wills and the coaching staff of both teams had better have their battle plans drawn and ready . If not, then one of these teams will find itself in the midst of an incessant onslaught and the ensuing battle could very well be viewed as being one sided and something of bore for the fans watching.

With the $17,500,000 at stake for the winner apart from the privilege of raising the the crystal trophy to signify that they’ve been crowned national champions. Along with it all comes the bragging rights and a great deal of prestige for the winning team and its program. Recruits will no doubt be watching with a great deal of interest and given the exposure that such a game brings they can’t help but feel that’s where they’re going to want to be ……….. on collegiate football’s grandest stage playing for a national title. The end goal being to showcase their talents for the watchful eyes for the NFL general managers and scouts also who are watching. It’s every young kids’ dream as well as that of the players who will be on display this upcoming Monday were the game is scheduled to be played at the University of Phoenix Stadium , Glendale , Arizona ,.

How have you viewed the games that have taken place during this Bowl season and what if anything to your mind has been the bright spot so far ? And are you as such entirely interested in the outcome of the national championship game ? Furthermore , what are your feelings on how the BCS system works and why they’re unwilling to adopt a playoff system ? Simply chime in with a comment as to your thoughts on the matter .

  1. One of these teams will fall back down to earth with something a thud after the disappointment of losing this championship game.

    If Auburn wins then the rumor is that Newton’s father (Cecil) will have a new wing added to his church in Neenan , Ga courtesy of a booster .

      It was convenient enough to appease the network broadcasting the game. No one wants to watch a matchup without one of the premiere players in the game . Suffice to say that the NCAA is no better or worse than the government. They’ll do whatever it takes in order to spend and make money at anyone’s expense.

      We seem to forget that there’s billions on the line each year and they simply don’t want the applecart being upset even by congress members such as Joe Barton (R-Tx) who’d called for an investigation of the BCS as well as the NCAA . And there it simply just wasn’t about the system but their business practices and finances. And as we all know nothing ever came of it as it was shot down in the House by members in support of both bodies. Need I say anymore on the matter ?

  2. We’ve discussed the contradictions of the BCS/NCAA for years now, Al.

    They’re obviously all about the money will little concern for the student athlete. They penalize athletes like T. Pryor and the like for breaking the rules (trying to actually make money off their accomplishments) yet punish them on their own terms. Clearly not allowing Pryor to play in that game would have cost the BCS/NCAA millions. So they did what was convenient for them.


    1. Chris Humpherys

      We’re in agreement here but I wish that the NCAA would simply stop with their ever increasing hypocritical stances ! It smacks of idiocy and them trying to come of as being sacrosanct when in fact they’re a bunch of sanctimonious bastards !

      ‘Coach you don’t mind me datin’ your daughter do you’ ? ” Son you can screw my daughter but stay away from my wife ” !

      What happened with Pryor and his teammates I’ve no doubt that the players themselves knew they were in the wrong but when measured to the antics of Maurice Clarett while he was a Buckeye this is merely and a drop in the ocean. What with Jim Tressel trying to convince the public that their way , they do things right , that’s like justifying Sadaam Hussein’s use of chemical weapons on the Kurds in Iraq. Tressel is a hypocrite and he damn well knows it .

  3. I can’t wait for this game. It’s going to be a good one. I love how Chip Kelley gets it done without the big name recruits coming to his Oregon. He gets the leftovers and makes them into great football players!

    I hope the Ducks win!!!

    I’m pretty sure Cam is going to come out for the draft now that Luck is staying! Cecil, err, I mean, Cam is about to get paid.

      What’ll make this game stand out is the apparent difference with both teams in terms of their play. The Ducks will overpower any team with their sheer speed whereas the Tigers will come at you with the typical SEC play in terms of using all facets of their arsenal ……. in other words on both sides of the ball they’ll play sound. Not so the case with Pac-10 teams .

      It’ll be interesting to see the contrasting coaching styles brought to this game between Chizik and Kelly . I think it may well come down to that rather than what will ultimately take place on the field of play .

      So Luck decided to stay in school and apparently Dolphins’ owner Stephen Ross met privately with Jim Jim Harbaugh to discuss the as yet vacated Dolphins’ coaching position ? I wonder where that now leaves Sparano ?

      Cam & Cecil Newton

      “We’s now gonna be rich and I’m going to do the Lord’s work as I’m the vessel of his deeds”. Cam and ‘Pastor’ Cecil Newton

      Cam Newton will definitely entertain the idea of entering the NFL Draft there’s too much money to be made and besides his father needs a new wing to be added to his church down there in Georgia . LOL ,LOL,LOL !!! With a minimum of $30 million guaranteed if he goes in the top 10 that can buy him and his dad several new pews for their church and a few limos I’d bet ! And less we forget the ho’s will come out of the woodwork and be after Cam and his money ? That’s how Dwight Howard got had albeit that Royce Reed put that choke hold with her ‘pootie-tang’ on his d_ck .

      Royce Reed and lil’ Dwight Jr (Braylon)

  4. After all is said and done the two best teams will meet in the championship game and may the best team win.
    Have a great weekend brother!


    1. aero

      These two teams stand head and shoulders above the others in college football and I for one hope it’s a really entertaining game. I don’t think that the fans could withstand either a blowout or a monstrous bore so let’s hope for the best at this juncture .

      Stay safe brother and my regards to the family !
