No More National Champions

I constantly hear calls for a playoff in college football. Proponents of the playoff claim that the BCS is not accurate, the current system is "broken", smaller programs like Boise State deserve a chance, blah, blah, blah...

There are a million reasons to have playoffs for the NCAA Football teams and all of them are dead wrong. There's no need for a playoff in college football, and this years college games prove it. Look at the final AP Poll released today and think about how wrong these rankings are. 1. Florida lost to Auburn! and not by a field goal - they got beat. Yes they played a good game against Ohio State, but it was a fluke. 9 times out of 10 Ohio State wins that game. 2. Ohio State LOST to Florida - you've got to be kidding me. How in the hell does that happen? And when you get your ass kicked that badly by a team that you should have rolled over should you really be ranked #2? 3. LSU lost TWICE in the regular season to Florida and Auburn. How can they be ranked HIGHER than the team (Auburn) that beat them and the National Champion? 4. USC LOST to UCLA - a team that is ranked #25 in the poll - so how can they be ranked in the Top 10? 5. Boise State is UNBEATEN and won the most exciting game of the year - they are clearly the #1 team in the country if there was such a thing as the #1 team - but there isn't.

What college football should do was detailed on this blog in January of 2005:

NCAA Football - There should be no ranking of College football teams - No such thing as a National Champion. No Sudden Death overtime in College Football. The Rose Bowl should always be Pac 10 champ vs. Big 10 champ. The Cotton Bowl should always be Big 12 champ vs. SEC champ. The Sugar Bowl should always be ACC champ vs. Big East Champ. There should be 3-5 other bowl games (Gator, Peach, etc.) the Orange Bowl should be abolished. There should be no corporate sponsorship of the Bowl Games. Half time shows should be restricted to marching bands. All Bowl games should be played on New Years Day.

Week 17 AP Top 25
1. Florida (64) 13-1 1,624
2. Ohio State 12-1 1,492
3. LSU 11-2 1,452
4. USC 11-2 1,389
5. Boise State (1) 13-0 1,383
6. Louisville 12-1 1,338
7. Wisconsin 12-1 1,288

The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson

She was "sexy", but "too much hard work." I'm a regular Fox & Friends viewer (mostly in protest of the other insipid morning programs like Today and Good Morning America) so over the years I've gotten to know Gretchen Carlson pretty well. Stuck between Steve and Brian she always seemed a prudish scold with an irritating, self-righteous demeanor that I simply put up with because I figured some people in the Fox audience actually liked her persona. It was obvious that Steve and Brian did not, but they were stuck with her like so many talking heads and had to make the best of it - which they did. Besides, she was no worse than any of the other women on morning show TV - I mean, you're only going to find a certain kind of person to do this kind of work and that kind of person is the Gretchen Carlson kind. Then, one day, she was gone and replaced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the F&F ratings began to climb, and climb and climb - in two months view

No Step On Snek

On The 2020 Election: In an elemental way We the People of the United States lost because Trump, and the MAGA movement he champions, forced the Deep State/Administrative State/New World Order (whatever you want to call it) and its enablers in Corporate America - Finance/FakeNews/Big Tech - to declare their sovereignty and steal our election in the most obvious way possible. The brazenness and " in yo face " shamelessness of the crime is a big part of its effectiveness and loudly proclaims an intent to demoralize and defeat the America First ideology which actually won the highest number of votes in this nation's history. It wasn't even close and that was made clear when key cities in 5 or 6 swing states declared they would pause (stop) counting(?!) votes until all the rural districts had submitted results allowing the big city machines to manufacture the ballots required to put Jo(((k)))e Biden in the lead. NPC's and Normies don't get too critical of process a

@POTUS hasn’t Tweeted

What happened to the 11,000 tweets? Twitter has conducted a "purge" of "conservative" voices from its "platform" and that includes the account of one Donald J Trump who happens to be the President of the United States of America. To which I say GOOD! Let's take it from the top. A purge (the bad kind) does not include getting kicked off a social network. If that's such a bad thing then the problem is with the society and not the network. Purges are when police officers bust down your door at 3AM, grab you and drive out to some empty field where they shoot you in the head and then tossed your limp body in a mass grave. A conservative is someone like Mitt Romney or these tools at the Lincoln Project who are free to post whatever lies or inflammatory rhetoric they want on Twitter. Twitter has no hatred for “conservatives” or Republicans as far as that goes and I don't think a single member of Congress or the political establishment has been "p
