Welp, make that the second year in a row that we've been screwed out of the Rose Bowl because of a rule change in the Big Ten

That was the best game I watched all year Milpool. You should be proud because win or lose you can't take away how great the first Big 10 Championship was and the MSU Spartans were 50% of the reason why

LET ME BE BITTER

Someone want to explain to me how polls work again?

Week 14

UM is ranked 16th in the AP and 17th in the Coaches.
MSU is 11th and 9th respectively.

Week 15 (UM sat at home, and MSU barely lost to Wisconsin)

UM jumps 3 and 5 spots to 13th and 12th.
MSU drops 1 and 4 spots to 12th and 13th.

How do you jump 5 spots for sitting at home?

Because the polls are fucked up, and furthermore MU barely got it done at home against the weakest OSU team they have faced in decades, they should themselves have been leapfrogged by teams with decisive victories

I mean, I can deal with the fact that we lost the title game. I'm already over that, and you're right, the game itself was phenomenal and I'm just glad that we were able to bring it instead of leaving it at home like we sometimes do.

But the Wolverines were rewarded with a BCS bowl for NOT playing in the title game. That I can't get over right now.

Even the Detroit Free Press thinks so, and they are quite known for constantly gobbling UofM's cock

What really stuck out for me was the comments on the penalty that won it for Wisconsin. I missed the lineman getting pushed, but maybe I didn't cause when I saw that flag something seemed rotten in Denmark, and I couldn't quite put my finger on what.

Turns out it was that missed push

PSU punched their "ticket" to the TicketCity Bowl. Woop-dee-doo!

IMO, with all the crap going on in State College, they should be glad they're going to a New Year's game at all.

Actually, the game itself should be good, for the football purists. A top-rated offense against one of the better defenses.

If you ask me the BCS fucked up worse than they have ever fucked up, and they have fucked up heavily in the past so that is saying something.

So to start with, like the TCU Boise State debacle from a couple years ago they take the 2 teams they fucked out of a shot at the BCS together effectively assuring they can't both win a bowl game which of course would add more fuel to the fraud fire they have set. So Oklahoma State and Stanford play each other assuring one of them loses. BCS honks breath half a sigh of relief that both will not win a bowl game.

Then because MU generates more bank, they get to leapfrog a superior MSU for an at large bid because lord knows MSU hasn't taken it up the ass enough.

Then we go to the BCS championship game.... Let's face it, I look forward to football because baseball and soccer just aren't as exciting. Alabama LSU will be yet another baseball/soccer match like it was when we saw it before. And to those talking heads who say, Okla St and Stanford had their shot and lost, bullshit. You are talking out of both sides of your mouth when you say they had their shot and lost yet say Bama earned their place by doing the exact same thing Stanford and Oklahoma St. did. And what about LSU, didn't they already prove themselves against Bama? Why do they have to do it again? Why does Bama get a mulligan?

My only hope is that the viewer turnout on this Championship game fraud is at an all time low, I know for the first time since the BCS Championship Game was implemented, I will not be watching it. Why should I? For one, I saw this game before, I don't do reruns. For another, why should I watch a game where I want both participants to lose? No mattrer what happens I am going to hate it. I have a feeling I will not be the only one not watching either.

Though on the plus side it will get record ratings south of the Mason Dixon line, so you have that going for you BCS, which is nice. So next year you can lose your major nationwide sponsors, but you should get a hefty upswing of Busch Beer, Nascar, Chaw, and Marlboro adverts for the 2013 game based off this years market research

Since the BCS is less legitimate than professional wrestling, I will be watching professional wrestling that night.

Given the BCS love affair with itself, which was even more apparent this year than in the past, I have not been able to generate any self-interest in college football pretty much the entire season.

WWE sounds pretty good to me too, PG.

The GA-LA thing was insane. I completely forgot it was that day and I happened to be in downtown Atlanta just trying to get to CNN Center DIDN'T GO WELL.

I took lots of pics I will have to wrangle and get up here somewhere.

I wish I'd gotten to this back when it was still relevant, but here it is. What a dumbass weekend I picked to try and tour Atlanta.



Georgia Dome from a safe distance:


Georgia entering in buses under police escort- people were whipping their shirts off and waving them and going WOOOOOO at the windows.


$40 parking sign- most were like $60 or $75, this was the cheapest I saw and it was full


It was mostly just a lot of general idiocy. Pedestrians were wandering the streets like cars didn't exist. Here's someone standing with a cellphone in the middle of the damn street:


And a whole lot of women were dressed really slutty, not sure why.

BAHAHAHAHA, watching the army/navy game and they superimposed a giant red box over the red zone while they were talking redundant shit about the midshipmen being in the red zone. JUST IN CASE YOU WERE CONFUSED. I know it's a stupid gripe, but it's really starting to annoy me how football games are being presented these days. Random shit popping up over the field, announcers explaining how football fucking works as if the viewers don't know, alongside constant slowmo replays of mundane crap repeated five billion times to give us retards something to look at while the grown ups are talking







I think I may secretly be an irritable bitch of a man

Nah I get that. In our days we had to learn football as we grew up from our dads and older brothers as God intended it. Now these graphics and explanations all appear and we are all, "I know I know SHUT UP ALREADY"

Now I get why Elvis shot his TV

Actually, I find it even more confusing than ever. It's a game where the position of the ball is quite important, yet all this overlay BS makes it nearly impssible to follow the ball. Too much visual "noise".

I would not be surprised if the red zone was sponsored and brought to you by old spice and the defense is depicted as stench. I can imagine it right now, "and Tom Brady and the patriots p-p-p-p-p-p-power it into the end zone on an odor eliminating drive."

Congrats to the 'Cats. OU has something to be proud of now except for its Halloween arrest record.

I am glad MSU won and hope MU loses so that I can be even more right about my assertion that MU took their ill gotten at large BCS bid from a more deserving MSU.
