History

The latest BCS shenanigans stink to high heaven. Nobody should be surprised by this. The system sucks. Out loud. Texas has a legitimate complaint.

But Mack Brown doesn't.

Surely you all remember Dec. 2004? No? Brown's Longhorns were 5th in the BCS that year as the season came down to its final weekend. #4 Cal needed to beat bowl-bound S. Miss on the road to lock up an automatic BCS bid and a Rose Bowl berth (their only loss was to eventual undefeated national champion USC). Cal won their game by 10 and in the next BCS standings, fell to 5th behind idle Texas, who were apparently so impressive while sitting around in their underwear that Saturday that nine--NINE!--writers and coaches leap-frogged them over the Bears in that final poll.

And Mack Brown lobbied for that vote for two weeks.

So...Mack knows the system. He's gamed it. And if you use it for ill-gotten gains, you're bound to get screwed karmically.

Feel bad for the players. The BCS is a travesty. Money-grubbing school presidents. Blah, blah, blah. All true. But Mack Brown can suck a dick.

How did Cal do in the Holiday Bowl that year when they "deserved" the Rose Bowl? Oh yeah, Texas Tech (whom Texas beat handily that year) beat the crap out of them while Texas was winning the Rose Bowl. :)

just messing with you, but Texas was better than Cal that year.

I ain't paying SHIT for BCS whines. For one, I will not be making them. For twos, the system sucks, as we all know, and for threes, Texas is the superior team and deserves to be on top at all times no matter the situation. So there. :P
