BCS Bedlam

"Oh hey! Have fun in the National Title...NOT."

By Andy Lindberg

I’ll be the first to admit I’m stoked out of my mind.  I’m a rabid Alabama Crimson Tide fan and a few weeks ago, my national title hopes were done.  I needed serious divine football God intervention to even have a shred of hope.  I needed undefeated #2 Oklahoma State to lose, #5 Boise State to lose, #4 Stanford to lose.  Shoot, I could have even used losses out of Oregon and Oklahoma just to be sure.

Would I see ALL five of those teams losing?  Not likely.  Oklahoma State was a lock to beat Iowa State and Oregon would surely cream USC after ousting Stanford.

Wait, hold on a moment…

(They lost?  Who?  ALL of them?  ALL!?!?)

*Ahem*, this just in, WHAT THE $*@# BCS?!?  You shatter my dreams and then hand them RIGHT back!?!  You TOY with the emotions of the college football fan and it has gone on for TOO long!  I had accepted Alabama’s demise.  ACCEPTED!  Now you want to give me more hope after crushing the hearts of so many others?  How DARE you!

As super stoked as I am for Alabama once again, has there ever been a more glaring example of why Division 1 college football needs a playoff system?  There have been examples before, sure, but now it’s a free-for-all.  This is a football debacle.  The computer deciding the new rankings might actually go Skynet on us in an attempt to understand what the heck just happened.

I want a divorce from the BCS.  I’m citing irreconcilable differences.  BCS hit me at the dinner table in front of my children.  It’s a monster that for some reason cannot be stopped, like how the Kardashians are still famous.  There is no answer to why either still exists.

This posting may be short, but you know it’s sweet.  Aside from the fact that the BCS rakes in TONS of money, is there a legitimate reason the BCS should stay instead of a playoff system?  Please comment if you have a good reason, because I would genuinely like to hear it.  Or comment if you hate the BCS.  Either way.  Also take a look at the poll below.

 

Why Athletes Love “Teach Me How to Dougie”

Have you ever noticed when entering a ballpark or stadium the various music that is often blared over the loudspeaker? Sure, they have oldies, such as Bruce Springsteen and Bon Jovi, which totally rock, but what about the song, “Teach Me How to Dougie,” have you heard that song?

Well, if not, you will certainly know what it is and have it stuck in your head after watching these various videos featuring everyone’s favorite athletes dancing to this particular song, so enjoy!

1.) There is nothing better than watching John Wall and others dance instead of doing various NBA exercises.

 

2.) Indeed, fans are obsessed with the song. Well, maybe not obsessed, but truly will do anything when this song comes on, especially when one or two people are at center court.

 

3.) The Golden State Warriors welcomed the “newcomers” to their team by making them dance to the song during practice.

 

4.) Also, the Portland Trail Blazers took a page out of Golden State’s book, as they too made their rookies dance in front of their home crowd.

 

5.) After Michael Vick connected with DeSean Jackson, the wide receiver celebrate his touchdown by dancing to “Teach Me How to Dougie.”

 

6.) During a San Francisco 49ers warm up, Reggie Smith decided he needed to dance in order to get ready for the game, but who knows if they won that game?

 

7.) This Oregon Ducks fan needed to show off his moves with the college’s mascot, but who was the better dancer?

 

8.) Is it possible to say that the NHL even enjoys this song?

 

9.) It’s rather funny to watch sports analysts or reporters, especially Charles Barkley dancing to this song.

 

10.) While many New England Patriots fans are dreading their most recent playoff loss to the New York Jets, who doesn’t enjoy watching Braylon Edwards do the “dougie?”
