The AP Crowns Alabama #1

But wait…. There is more! Isn’t there always more? It wasn’t unanimous. Imagine that! It seems there were 4 people who voted Oklahoma State as #1 instead of Alabama. And why do you think that is sports fans?? Can you say “bias?” I know I can.

And who were these losers?
Steve Conroy of the Boston Herald, Seth Emerson of the Macon Telegraph, Matt Markey of the Toledo Blade and Scott Wolf of the Los Angeles Daily News These guys had Oklahoma State No. 1 and Alabama No. 2.

These biased voters are upset because the BCS chose the best two teams in the country. PERIOD. NOBODY could beat LSU except Alabama and LSU. LSU played THE hardest schedule this year and went UNDEFEATED! Alabama’s ONLY loss was to LSU, in OT with NO Touchdowns scored.

Who did Oklahoma State play AND lose to? What UNRANKED school was that? Oh yeah, it was that perennial BCS contender (that’s sarcasm) Iowa State. UnRanked Iowa State. OSU had their chance. THEY blew it.

So how do the voters take out their frustrations? They punish the champions. The voters did it in 1966 to Alabama (The Missing Ring) and those 4 voters tried it in 2011. Boo! Grow up. If you don’t like the system, change it. If the BCS won’t change, call your Congressman.

Roll Tide!
