My new pet peeve

Really, I try to give people the benefit of the doubt.But sometimes ....

Like the folks who are saying USC and Georgia can stake claims to No. 1 after their bowl victories.


So USC, a 13 1/2-point favorite -- the biggest favorite of any team in a BCS bowl game -- deserves to be No. 1 because it blasted Illinois. Excuse me, but if you're a 13 1/2-point favorite in a BCS bowl game YOU SHOULD BLAST ILLINOIS.

Georgia was a 7 1/2-point favorite over Hawaii -- that was the second-largest (along with Oklahoma) favorite in a BCS bowl game. Again, Georgia was supposed to win big.

On the other hand, LSU and Ohio State have a four-point line. Meaning Vegas expects a competitive game. Why does Vegas expect a competitive game? Because it's two similar teams playing each other.

Yet, some people are willing to be impressed by playing a JV squad (Hawaii) or the second/third best team in the Big Ten (Illinois).

Sorry, I'm not falling for that one.

There is NO way USC should even be mentioned for a splt title!! The media says they are the best team right now, and that might be hard to argue, BUT!!! They were not the best through out the Season!!! They lost to Stanford, are you kidding me?? They say injuries caused their failures...maybe, BUT!!! Thats football! Every team has injuries that unfortuantely ruin their chances...look at WVU, or Almost LSU for that matter! Georgia dominated an undefeated team...Are we gonna split it three ways if we win?? Oh yeah!! WVU dominated as well, lets make it four ways.. THE BCS championship game is in place for a reason, better luck next time is what i say!! GEAUX TIGERS!!!!
