View Full Version : Lots of sorry looking teams in BCS this year

Just watched a miserable display of bumbling basketball televised from Iowa City, Wake Forest vs Iowa. Deacons won by about 10, and are undefeated so far vs cupcake U, in which the Hawkeyes must now be numbered. What a sad story for a program which has been a perennial contender in the past. The spectacle was made more deplorable by Wake's pin-striped, vested, preening a** of a coach (Dino Gaudio-what a perfect name, eh?) who, with a comfortable lead of 10 pts, called two time-outs in the last thirty seconds so he could pose as a coach for ESPN'S closeups. Anyway, it looks like there's some real dog food at the bottom of both the Big Ten and the ACC this year.

Choice quotes:

No one can really tell you who is No. 1 or No. 2 or No. 22; we're talking about teams in different parts of a very large country, facing vastly dissimilar schedules. It's like trying to figure out if Russell Crowe or Keanu Reeves is a better actor -- well, maybe that's a bad example -- but how do you compare two guys who play different roles in dissimilar films and never work with the same gaffers?

As you may recall, the BCS standings include three components: The USA Today coaches poll, the Harris Interactive poll and an average of six computer rankings. It is an imperfect system dependent on petulant people, somewhat reminiscent of the Ottoman Empire.

Reno Z: That was a GREAT link! Thank you for posting it. Have we come to that dire time when it's left to the sports writers' to show that the Emperor not only has no clothes, but is committing lewd acts in public? :confused:
