The Rum and Popcorn 100

I got a lot of problems with these people!

15. the BCS

The one argument BCS apologists always made: the regular season is the playoff; it counts for everything. Okay, so, for the last time: Texas beats Oklahoma by ten on a neutral field, Texas Tech nips Texas at Texas Tech, Oklahoma beats Texas Tech significantly at Oklahoma. Oklahoma’s the best team…even though they lost to Texas on a neutral field, the supposed basis by which teams are judged head-to-head? And the game doesn’t count even though it happened? But every game matters! That’s what I was told!

Look, you can tell me the BCS is entertaining, you can say you love the arguments, and you can say it’s better than the way the sport used to be. Just don’t tell me it’s the best way to choose a champion unlike every other sport. I mean let’s just call it what it is, figure skating in pads, as long as this is going to continue.
