World Class, Booze Enhanced Pick'em Show-The End is the Beginning is the End.

It's the third week of November. The season is winding down. What began
as a fresh year has reverted to the same old suck. Once again, an SEC
team with absolutely nothing good on the resume will slaughter a Big
Twelve team.

I've written in this space before what I think will fix the mess that
afflicts our favorite sport. This bears repeating.

IF there isn't going to be a legitimate playoff then I'd like to see the
following changes to the BCS:

1) A loss automatically entails a mandatory 10 point drop in the next
rankings (#1 loses they can be ranked no higher than #11 the next week).
This prevents teams with three losses clogging up the top 25.

2) Games against 1-AA opposition DO NOT COUNT in BCS rankings. A team
that schedules 1 1-AA opponent will be judged on a 11 game schedule.
This will promote better scheduling.

3) All annual neutral site games revert to home and home. Army/Navy is
exempt.
This will provide one less opportunity to schedule a 1-AA team and give
a quality opponent on the road every other year.

4) No more "home" games played in a neutral site. If Notre Dame wants to
schedule Washington State, they get to go to Pullman.

5) OOC scheduling will count more in BCS rankings.  This will promote
better scheduling.

6) All OOC is home and home. You want to slaughter EMU for homecoming?
Be prepared to travel to Ypsilanti next year.

7) Conference championship games are nothing more than *** money
grabs. Therefore, CCG are not counted in the BCS rankings. The winner
still gets the conference autobid-the loser takes their chances.

8) No team with losses may be selected to the BCS over an undefeated
team. Unless the team with losses is an autobid team.

9) The Nebraska Rule: You MUST be your conference's champion/co-champion
to play in the title game.

No playoff, better OOC games, and no unfair bump for playing extra
games, penalty for scheduling cupcakes.

I'm sure there will be much discussion and Mia might just hit me with
his man-purse. So here's the picks:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Duke at Miami

Would I be surpirsed if Miami rolled up 50+ points? Nope. Would I be
surprised if Duke won 34-31? Nope. That's how bizarre the ACC is.

Splitting the difference:

Ibis over Devil 40-31
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Old and Fired over Fat and Fired 22-17
Dabo over Groh 31-14
Chestnut Hill over Chapel Hill 28-24
Hokie over Wolfie 48-12
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Louisville at South Florida

It's HOMECOMING!

Big whoop. After the embarassment in Jersey, I think I know why USF has
these mid-season swoons. They schedule some pastry, then a "Name" game.
They get hopped up for the "Name", beat them and then tank for a couple
of weeks. Kind of like coming down off a sugar high. Eventually they'll
get it out of the collective psyche.

Oh, and Lousiville sucks.

Bulls over Birds 35-13
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fatass staves off the vultres for one more week 27-21
Red over Orange 30-10
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ohio State at Michigan

Michigan has its John Cooper. Plain and simple. Yes, it's the 40th
anniversary of Bo's win over Woody. Yes, it's the big rivalry game. But
for it to be a rivalry, Michigan needs to win....right now Tressel owns
the Maize and Blue and it continues....just keep it under 50, 'k?

Lord Sweatervest over Dead Meat 35-10
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Iowa wins the Pig Jig 27-20
Old Grumpy wins the Land Grump 24-17
Badgers over NW 20-17
Boilers over Hoosiers 21-14
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Kansas at Texas

What might have been if Kansas hadn't channled its inner USF. This could
have been a stumble for Texas if Man Mountain hadn't lost his team-Now
it's all Beef All Day.

TEXATH! over KANSATH 31-7
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mizzou over Cyclou 28-12
Sooner Chow over Baylor 10-7
Nebraska "wins" the Big Twelve Norte 12-3
BOOMER over GUNZUP 45-30
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SMU at Marshall

Call it funky offense. Call it what you will, June Jones can coach. SMU
is going to go bowling again-and football in Dallas is relevant again. A
nice round of applause all around.

Ponies over Herd 30-20
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Knights over Wave 34-7
ECU over UAB 31-28
Cougs over Tigers 48-28
Miners over Rice 17-13
SoMiss over Tulsa 33-30
Black Knights over Mean Green 21-13
BGSU over Akron 28-14
Toledo over EMU 35-3
NIU over Ohio 28-17
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
TCU at Wyoming

I don't think that TCU is going to struggle at all in Laramie, unlike a
certain other team from Texas-Same end result though.

Frogs over Pokes 41-7
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Utes over Aztecs 42-17
Mormons over Pilots 31-10
Rams over Llllllllllllobos 20-0
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
California at Stanford

You all know what the score I'm going to use-it's been a runnng***for
years. Stanford does not suck. Laying the wood to Oregon AND the Troj
were beautiful sights to see. So...what precisely happened against Wake
Forest?  Palo Alto gonna party until Harbaugh gets the Irish gig.

The Band gets revenge 25-20
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Duck over Cat 45-42
Beav over Coog 45-10
Bruins over Devils 22-16
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Florida International at Florida

Hey, Florida..I'm talking to you. Another year, another late cupcake.
You're pathetic. Pitiful. You oughta be kept out of the BCS for
scheduling this garbage. The only good development from this game is if
Pope Whiny Ass runs out to take his dream job in South Bend. At
halftime. Gutless cowards.

Godzilla over Bambi <Insert insulting score here>
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chattanooga at Alabama

Hey, Alabama..I'm talking to you. Another year, another late cupcake.
You're pathetic. Pitiful. You oughta be kept out of the BCS for
scheduling this garbage. The only good development from this game is if
Satan runs out to take his dream job in South Bend. At halftime. Gutless
cowards.

Godzilla over Bambi <Insert insulting score here>
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dawgs over Cats 28-13 (RIP UGA)
UT over VU 20-3
Side of Ham over Missy State 38-13
Tigers over Rebels 13-10
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
La-Cajun over La-Warhawk 23-17
MTSU over Arkie State 33-20
Troy over FAU 40-17
Boise rolls 56-10
Fresno over LaTechque 28-24
Hawaii over SJSU 21-10
Nevada over NMSU 56-17

Onward and Upward.

SIF

No need in me reading the rest, this is just stoopid.  So your gonna do
away with the Texath/OU game, Georgia/Florida, and North Dakota/South
Dakota?

I don't know of any football fan that would agree with this none sense.  I
thought you were smrater than this.

Bleh!

You sir are a firebrand, and iconoclast.

Dare I say it?

A Rogue.
