Cop out

Once again, college football lets us all down. Why on earth is Boise St. matched with TCU in the Fiesta Bowl, while the teams from the "power" conferences do battle in the other BCS bowl games?

It's bad enough that we can't ever get a true national champion, but even when it has an opportunity to create an intriguing game in one of the non-title BCS games, college football is too dumb to do it.

Wouldn't you have loved to see TCU play Florida? An upstart with big talent against the best team in the country over the last five years - that would interest me.

Instead we get yawners like Florida-Cincinnati, Ohio State-Oregon and the ultimate sleep-aid, Iowa-Georgia Tech. Boise and TCU played in the Poinsettia Bowl LAST YEAR! Can't we get something different?

Of course we can't, because college football is a joke.

  1. Hey Tony G., I can't disagree with you, but I will still watch Cinncinatti-Florida game, rooting for Cinncinnati. I only wish Notre Dame HAD gone to a bowl game like you wrote last week. Brian Kelly could have coached the game!

    To quote Mardy Gilyard (see below), I'm fairly disgusted with the situation.

    (The following quote is from Joe Key's AP story . . .)

    "Kelly officially takes over at Notre Dame on Monday. On Thursday, he attended the Bearcats team banquet, eventually telling players he was leaving.

    The news didn't play well with Kelly's current team. Bearcat players were led into a meeting room, where Kelly told them he was leaving and thanked them for making his opportunity possible. One minute into the meeting, the door opened and receiver Mardy Gilyard walked out angry and alone, save his team MVP trophy.

    "He went for the money," Gilyard told The Associated Press. "I'm fairly disgusted with the situation, that they let it last this long."
