Why Oklahoma State is more deserving than Alabama

The propaganda pushers at ESPN are at it again. They are trying to quell any talk about any team besides Alabama being allowed to play LSU in the National Championship Game. ESPN, of course, doesn't tell the viewers that two of the biggest pushers for this reasoning are Rece Davis and Brad Edwards, two Alabama alumni. Nor does ESPN put a disclaimer about Herbstreit's friendship with Nick Saban. Why is ESPN so afraid to open the discussion? Why should the public and the voters not look at the cases for both teams without preseason bias? If we did, we might see that Alabama's argument is a house built on cards. Alabama's "best win" in fact is a loss at home! ESPNers and Bama homeburgers don't want you to know that Bama struggled against FCS division Georgia Southern, giving up 21 points, 300+ yards on the ground, and Bama had to throw a pass TD with 1:00 left to pad the score.

Here are just a few of the reasons Alabama should not be given a free pass to the NC Game:

1) Alabama's high ranking now is largely the result of a preseason #2 ranking. Had Oklahoma State had the hype Alabama had surrounding it, Oklahoma State, based on that hype and its performance thus far, would be #2 in the voters' eyes.

2) Alabama already lost to LSU, at home no less. Why should Alabama get a second shot when there is a team that is just as deserving, but who hasn't had the chance to play LSU?

3) Allowing the SEC two teams in the National Championship Game opens the SEC to a pseudo-monopoly. We have little to judge the strength of the Big XII to the SEC other than a narrow win by the SEC's #3 team, Arkansas, over the Big XII's #7 team, Texas A&M. By giving Alabama a free trip to the NC Game, we have no idea if the Big XII's best could have defeated the SEC's best. The SEC has earned much respect based on prior results, but the SEC should not be given a monopoly. It would be bad for the competitiveness of college football.

4) Oklahoma State is a conference champion. Alabama did not even win its division, much less its conference. If Alabama wins, what a strange world it would be in a non-playoff system for a team that did not win its own conference to be national champion when at least three teams (Oklahoma State, VA Tech, and LSU) would have equal or superior records and actually did win their conferences.

5) 2006. Save for a last second drive amongst voters to ensure Michigan did not get a rematch against Ohio State, we would have ended 2006 with the belief that the Big 10 was the best conference in the land. Imagine if Florida did not get the chance to play in the NC Game. The world would have assumed Ohio State or Michigan was far and away the best team in the land. But look how Florida destroyed undefeated Ohio State. What if Oklahoma State is capable of doing the same to LSU, but is never given that chance? Again, Alabama had its chance. Oklahoma State has earned its chance to show the world what it is capable of doing.

Correcting history

Now that the truth of USC's past has come into the light of justice, it's time that the college football public begin to reassess the last decade. When Pete Carroll was hired at USC, he was a career .500 head coach. After a typical .500 season his first year at USC, Baghdad Pete's teams exploded the next seven years to a near .900 record. At the time, the media and public assumed Pete had found his niche. Few questioned how such an average coach could become the Super Coach over night. As we recently discovered, the overnight transformation of USC under an average coach came not by miracle but by cheating. USC players under Pete Carroll used steroids and were lured by the prospect of getting free money from agents, just as Reggie Bush. Now the dramatic leap from .500 is a lot more comprehensible, and the world knows that the success USC had under Pete Carroll was directly linked to a culture of corruption and an atmosphere of cheating. Cheating may pay off in the short term, but long term, truth gets the best of cheating.

Now the question becomes, Should Auburn be awarded the 2004 National Championship? Former coach, Tommy Tubberville, thinks so.

Finally Official: USC's 2004 NC Vacated

U$C, with their hubris and arrogance, appealed to the NCAA last Fall, stating that the NCAA sanctions, which included post-season bans, massive scholarship reductions, and forfeiture of wins during 2004 and 2005, including the 2004 NC, were excessive. The NCAA laughed at USC. After years of allowing players to receive money from agents and boosters, and more recently, years of stonewalling the NCAA investigation, justice has come for the U$Cheaters. It is OFFICIAL! All sanctions were upheld, and U$C will be forced to vacate its only National Championship since the 1970s! 3 Pete? No. 2 Pete? No. 1 Pete? NO PETE!!!!

Read all about it in the LA Times!
And if you please, here is the official NCAA announcment.

I guess Baghdad Pete da Cheat, who promised USC faithful that the NCAA would find nothing when the investigation began five years ago, made a pretty good choice when he bolted for the NFL just weeks before the NCAA sanctions hit.

Saddened by 2010, the worst year in CFB history

Besides those years U$C blemished by playing paid players, steroided players and Frostee Rucker.

Look at the top 4

1. Auburn - playing a paid player. Playing cheap shots who deserve to be executed for their dirty play.

2. Oregon - played only 2 teams with a winning record all season. Needed PAC 10 refs against a 5 loss Cal to negate an obvious good FG that would have won the game for Cal.

3. Boise State - their 2nd most "impressive" victory is against a terrible, terrible Oregon State team

4. TCU - played absolutely no one. Blew out a terrible UTAH that got blown out by a terrible ND team yesterday.

If any one of these four teams plays in the NC Game, it is officially the most pathetic year of CFB EVER!

Justice is late but soon to arrive for USC

According to several sources, the NCAA will punish USC for being the most corrupt program in recent NCAA history come this Friday. Rumors swirl as to what the punishment will be, but our sources tell us it will be severe. I believe USC will lose five or six scholarships for the next four years, be bowl ineligible for two years, and be forced to forfeit all games from November 2004 to January 2006. That would mean USC is forced to forfeit 18 games, 17 of which were victories, all as a result of cheating. USC's final composite record during the 2000s decade would be 85-42, for a 67% winning percentage.

The BCS has already written new rules to accommodate the corruption at USC, writing in 2007 a provision that allows the BCS to vacate a national championship if a winning team has been proved to have major NCAA violations. It's clear that USC will soon be the first to experience this justice.

The end result is leaving USC as a program in shambles that hasn't won a national championship since Jimmy Carter was president.
