The band wasn't playing last Saredee so I took a little time to kick back and watch some college football for a change. I'm sure all the yankee sportswriters were thrilled when South Carolina knocked off #1 Alabama. Now those yankee sports writers can gleefully elevate Ohio State or Oregon to the #1 position. Wait a minute, LSU and Auburn are still undefeated, what about them? Nah, those yankee sports writers are prejudiced against SEC teams. Any time they get a chance to elevate some yankee team or west coast team over an SEC team, they're gonna do it. If Notre Dame could win 3 or 4 games, they'd put them at #1. Those yankee sportswriters just LOVE Notre Dame.
Just to give you an example of yankee prejudice, consider the loudmouth bloviating yankee, Sean Hannity. From time to time he has coach Lou Holtz on his program. He always introduces him as "former Notre Dame coach". The fact of the matter is that Holtz not only coached at Notre Dame, he also was head coach at William and Mary, North Carolina State, Minnesota, Arkansas, and South Carolina. I guess those schools are just chopped liver in the eyes of yankees like Hannity.
I've complained about this before, but this ranking thing just really gripes my ass. I'll say again that we really need a college football playoff system and just let the top teams slug it out at the end of the year........winner takes all.......there's no points for second best. It's one of the few things Hussein Obama and I agree on. The SEC (South Eastern Conference) is probably the toughest conference in all of football. Many times though most of the teams don't go undefeated, mainly because they all have to play each other in the conference. Unfortunately it is nearly impossible for a team with a single loss to get a shot at the national title. In my humble opinion, many of the SEC teams with 1 or 2 losses are better than a lot of the undefeated teams from other places, hence the need to a playoff, if you really wanna find out who is the best.
Speaking of the Alabama, South Carolina game, you gotta hand it to the old ball coach, Steve Spurrier. No matter what you think of him, he always has his team well prepared and has a few tricks up his sleeve.
