"The principle of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale." --Thomas Jefferson

We were the BEST..Unless

In the land of the free and the home of the competitive, one would think that as popular as college football is, there would be a definitive way to determine a champion. There are three teams full of eager college students that will have to live the rest of their lives telling their kids they were the national champions when in reality they will never know. The Undefeated Utah, Victorious one-loss Texas or the winner of the Oklahoma/Florida game will be the benefactor of a righteously flawed system that is more concerned with who has the money and who gets to keep the money that actually crowning a collegiate champion. Even hush money is paid to those schools who, if they threw a big enough fit about the flaws in the BCS system might spoil the party. Notre Dame gets over a million bucks a year whether they win a BCS bowl bid or not. Someone is greasing the skids for the greatest scam since the quiet size reduction of ice cream containers. You won't catch me wearing a BCS T-shirt anytime soon. I say Boo.
