So long as the powers-that-be in college football choose the BCS over a playoff system, I don't see why the schools in contention for a spot in the national title game are not allowed to lawyer-up, have their day in court, and present their best arguments and evidence before a panel of impartial jurists as to why they feel they deserve a shot at the big game and a chance to collect all that championship money at stake.
Where's the due process for schools who will never get an opportunity to play for the national title under the BCS because of the conference they play in? See Utah last year, TCU and Boise St. this year.
Where's the accountability for those responsible for the BCS? Who made the decision to put Oklahoma in the title game last year ahead of Texas? Let's have it out, publicly, and allow the schools to make their case. And then let's identify the decision-makers and make them justify their decisions.
The BCS is a subjective way to choose a national champion. Because it is subjective, the opportunity to be heard should be standard. Without it, the BCS kings and queens will rule on!
Through five weeks, three of the Kansas City Chiefs home games have been televised in the Los Angeles market: Week 2 against the Raiders, Week 4 against the Giants, and now, Week 5 against the Cowboys. WTF is going on here? Is this part of the NFL's plan to get us to buy DirectTV so that we can get the NFL Network? It's fucking horse shit.
I can't quite figure out how 13 of the Covers experts are on the Padres for this afternoon's game, and 0 are on the Nationals. I know the Nationals are terrible, and even worse on the road, but with a lefty pitching for them today, and with the Padres batting less than .200 at home against lefties all year, I am a bit surprised to see such a one-sided pick today.
