They made the BCS selections yesterday, so you know what that means.
John Feinstein is very, very unhappy. It’s the usual angry, mixed-up grumble we’ve come to expect from him, but I do love the send-off. It’s as hackneyed as my header:
The year is 2009. We have put men on the moon, we have elected an African American president and we’ve invented Google. There is not a single reason not to end the BCS.
It just takes the right people deciding to make it happen. Barack Obama overcame a lot more than the specter of the puffed-up BCS presidents to sit in the Oval Office. The end of this debacle should begin — needs to begin — with him. And it needs to begin now.
It is my fervent hope that we never see John Feinstein and Ari Fleischer debate this issue. Because I’m afraid that if we did, millions of Americans would promptly lose complete interest in college football forever.
