I’m really getting tired of having my intelligence insulted. Here’s what Florida’s president had to say yesterday about the brilliant job the conference is doing with its self-induced scheduling snafu:
“You can draw up other scenarios. But I’d say for right now that one (as 6-1-1) is fine,” Machen said. “Some people don’t like how we got the East-West divided up. Let’s see how it works. In the end, it’s one conference. Look at basketball. They’ve essentially put it all together.”
Oh, yeah, basketball scheduling. That’s working out swimmingly. The only plus to take out of it is that the presidents have some sense of foreboding about the mess they’ve made by agreeing to revisit the matter in three years.
These guys are provincial morons. The only people more clueless are the fans who faithfully believe that these are the very same people who are going to come up with a sensible postseason arrangement to save college football. To those, all I can say is you’ll get what you deserve.
