Thoughts on Last Night's BCS game

Despite all the complaints that Oklahoma State should have been playing against Louisiana State in the BCS championship game, we saw the best two teams in the entire fucking country playing last night.

Here’s the part that I don’t get...despite all the excellent defense on account of both teams, there were numerous complaints that it was a snooze fest. However, when there is a pitching duel going on in a baseball game, it’s labeled as an instant classic!

Don’t get me wrong. I love baseball and always enjoy a nice pitching duel and that means a game could be over in slightly over, or even under 2 hours, when both pitchers are pitching lights out.

I’m a die-hard Kentucky fan. As such, I always root for our Southeastern Conference (SEC) brethren when it comes to postseason play...even when it is Tennessee.

That LSU team that won it all in 2008? They had two losses during the regular season that went into 3OT! One was at #17 Kentucky, where they were ranked #1 at the nation, and lossed 43-37. The second was a home game against Arkansas, where they would lose 50-48 in a 3OT thriller. It should be noted that going into the SEC Championship game, the Tigers were rated 7th in the nation according to the Coaches Poll! Of course, they were ranked #2 before becoming the second straight SEC team to beat Ohio State for the championship.

The SEC is the best fucking conference in all of college football. I fucking dare you to show me a better all-around conference in football. Guess what? YOU CAN’T! It’s true. If other conferences were so great, then why can they not beat SEC teams for the national championship.

Don’t give me that fucking bullshit about the lack of a college football playoff system. The SEC tried to push that through but the other conferences were against it!
