This is, beyond the shadow of a doubt, the best “pot, meet kettle” blog post of the year. It’s so over the top, it verges on parody.
His premise is simple: Hawaii deserves to be in the BCS title game ahead of LSU because teams in the SEC don’t play any schools of note.
Please, as you absorb this, let me refer you back to Hawaii’s (119th nationally ranked SOS) list of opponents for the 2007 season:
- Northern Colorado
- Louisiana Tech
- Charleston Southern
- Utah State
- San Jose State
- New Mexico State
- Fresno State
- Boise State
Is there a team in the BCS top 10 that doesn’t race through that group 12-0? Hell, for that matter, don’t the two teams that LSU lost to go undefeated against that bunch?
Then, again, maybe that just doesn’t matter.
The truth is, Hawaii deserves to play for the national championship and LSU really has no argument. Sure, you could reason that LSU is the better team, but this isn’t about that.
The truth? We can’t handle the truth!
