A video about the BCS

I'm not a country music fan, the slow strumming of the guitars comes off more boring than intriguing, but the guys words are the important part.

And although part of the BCS has formulas, computers and calculations to get rid of the "human element" odd outcomes and rankings still occur.

And yet there is a still a human element in the form of a coaches poll.

The human factor is completely subjective, although I do understand why it may have seemed like a good idea. Teams that should be ranked in the 20's get ranked in the teens by their own coaches? Biased anyone?

CFB needs a playoff.

Urban Meyer made a stand for his team, Michigan's players probably wish their coach did the same

The Michigan message boards seem hell bent on convincing everyone that their team is better than the Gators but also that their coach is "classier" than Urban Meyer.

Here is how I look at it:

Urban Meyer did not whine, he "politicked." When CFB has a system where everything is judged by style points and ESPN, Meyer had to make a case because ESPN was ready to anoint Michigan and OSU the best teams ever. (Just like USC last year.) It's a bad system, a playoff is needed. And Meyer has already come out supporting it.

It looks like Lloyd Carr now regrets his decision not to say anything.

“I gave a lot of thought,” Carr said on Mitch Albom’s afternoon-drive show on WJR-AM (760). “I had some conversations with people I have great respect for here at Michigan. I really would have liked to say some other things but I truly felt in the big picture that I would hurt our chances if I did that. Even more importantly, I just felt that as a representative of the University of Michigan, it would have been out of line for me to do that, even though personally I would have liked to do it. When I look at the votes, I know it wouldn’t have made any difference. I’m happy with what I did say.”

Coaches have to stand up for their players. It brings unity and cohesiveness to the team. It shows recruits that coaches care about players. Maybe Michigan fans should be criticizing their coach for not doing anything, for not beating their rival the last 5 out of 6 years.

So now since Michigan is not getting a do-over, their attack moves to our coaches lack of class. I found a couple of Carr's most classiest moments.

Everyone remembers the “Why would you ask a dumb question like that?” to ABC sideline reporter Todd Harris at the 2003 OSU/Michigan game.

But more impressive may be the way he treated, god forbid, a female sports reporter after the game. Although not widely reported, (I guess this is common with Carr), Carr threw every profanity he knew at this unsuspecting reporter for whatever reason.

There is a reason sports reporters dislike Carr, when reporters ask him questions they get cussed out. When Meyer gets asked questions he sticks up for his players, his team, his school.

SEC Champs Video

Well Reggie Nelson, all the South knows you got over-looked

Reggie Nelson, the most exciting and head-hunting defensive player in college football, got overlooked for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy. Instead, some buttery white guy from Ohio State received the hardware.

Ohio State middle linebacker James Laurinaitis won the Bronko Nagurski Trophy on Monday night, awarded to the nation's best defensive player by the Charlotte Touchdown Club.

That's alright. Show the world in the Fiesta Bowl what "The Eraser" is made of.

The Eraser laying a hit, LSU won't soon forget

We are going to the Championship!

The media has already proclaimed OSU the champs, so I guess we'll fly up anyway for the hell of it.

I expect this from OSU fans?

A couple of vids

Special Teams and Defense Video. Gives me chills

(No Field Goals made included)

And the Mayor of Hit City... Reggie Nelson

I tried to hold out hope.

It looks like the Gators have a zero percent chance to make it to the national championship game. At best it looks like the number three spot in the BCS is the most achievable goal. Michigan was sitting pretty at number two a couple of weeks ago, but with their season over, both USC and Florida I think will jump them before bowl games start.

USC first has to get by a (6-5) UCLA who looks to have little upset potential. It's more likely UCLA finishes with a losing record going against USC and FSU as their final 2 games.

Florida has to win the SEC Championship against a steaming angry Arkansas team with a couple of NFL running backs. Look for Florida to max protect the run and force their QB Dick to throw the ball. IF UF loses, there is still a decent chance Florida makes it to a BCS bowl game. Arkansas would be in the Sugar Bowl. LSU may also have a chance with only two losses... BUT the Gators beat them head to head, have more wins, won their division and made it to the SEC Championship game.

Barring an upset by UCLA, it looks like if the Gators win out, be content going to the Sugar Bowl and kicking the life out of whoever the BCS matches us up against. (I hope it's Notre Dame.)

Go Gators! Beat Arkansas! I will be in ATL this weekend, not for the game, but for a conference. And I WILL be cheering you on.
