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.

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

Blue Devils and Yellow Cowards

A few weeks ago Duke lost Coach K’s last game at Camron Indoor Stadium to the schools hated rival, North Carolina University, in an epic grudge match. It was an “ unacceptable ” finale for the maniacal ferret-faced competitor who created the 40 year dynastic Duke hoops program with 1,000+ wins and fists full of ACC and NCAA championships but for Tar Heels everywhere it was a day of retribution. Michael  William Krzyzewski, is a red-blooded All-American college basketball coach of Polish and Ukrainian descent who grew up in Chicago’s famous Ukrainian Village which is (or at least was) culturally very reminiscent of the Rus borderlands. That is to say that young S h-shef-ski   grew up as  far away (psychology) from Dixie as is possible while still living within the borders of the USA. That makes him the perfect choice to represent Duke University and the Yankee overachievers who emigrate to Durham for 4 years of education and networking before moving back to non-Southern civilization.

Mask Off

U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle finally did it - after 14 months of mandatory masking by order of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) this capricious and ineffectual edict has been ruled unconstitutional and, it follows, illegal.  Since January 29, 2021 the CDC has prohibited citizens to travel without wearing a mask but the insanity actually started as far back as July 14, 2020 when " CDC calls on Americans to wear masks to prevent COVID-19 spread ." That's 643 days of stupidity folks - it covers the Kenosha Riots, the attempted kidnapping of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, the Fake 2020 Election, the 1/6 Save America March and Insurrection, Jo(((K)))e Brandon's phony Inauguration, Trump's 2nd Impeachment, a horrible year of pathetic "leadership" from every single elected official in Washington DC, a war in Eastern Europe - and NOW, at long last, a federal judge in Florida ends the mask tyranny with one simple ruling from her bench.

Psycho Killer, qu'est-ce?

I came into this wicked world in the early 1960's and as a result I have born witness to America's 50 Years of Failure which includes the modern age of mass shootings by psychotic men who "go off" on a given day, for no reason at all (except "guns"), and kill scads of innocent bystanders. Back in August of 2019 a KOTCB blog post titled " Reciprocity City " explored a young  gunman  named Patrick Crusius  who drove 9 hours through the west Texas flatlands to shoot up El Paso, TX The KOTCB has commented on many of these shootings, bombings and knifings over the years -  The roots of the Boston Marathon Bombing ,  the Emanuel AME Church shooting ,  Syed Rizvan Farook and his bride Tashfeen Malik ,  Ft. Lauderdale Airport shooting ,  Nick Cruz lovesick Parkland shooting ,  the Iranian, PETA activist, Vegan Bodybuilder, YouTuber's attack on Google  and now this very oddly timed and placed "lone wolf" attack on Walmart shoppers.
