Should Soccer Be The So-Called World Sport?

Tagged:  

I know there's a political component, and additionally, there's the money issue. I remember soccer has been pushed in this country, since I first began following sports, c. 1960. I think baseball should be the official "World Sport", but that's a personal choice. That said, basketball is played the world over, and even some of the Commie Countries love it. As an American, I want to see Our Country dominate in the sports' world as well. I don't care for watching "0-0" scores, game after game, either. Hopefully, this notion will wither on the vine, as they say.

Joe Paterno is dead. Sandusky has been convicted and will hopefully die in prison. Pretty much everyone else that had any culpability has been fired.
So I ask one question.

Who does this punish?

The student athletes did nothing wrong, nor did the other Penn State students that love their school.

Who wins?

The biggie is on tonight. Who wins?

LSU #1, Oklahoma State #2: Final Regular Season American Heartland Bar and Grill College Football Top 30

Seriously? LSU versus Alabama? Just when you think the BCS couldn't stoop any lower, Alabama, a team who's kicker couldn't make a field goal at home, gets a shot at the BCS title (I refuse to call it the national title) while Big 12 Champion Oklahoma State doesn't? And Oklahoma State's lone loss was a game that never should have been played against Iowa State. The game was played on the same day that the OSU women's basketball coach was killed in a plane crash and EVERY OTHER Cowboy sporting activity was cancelled.

Really?

LSU #1, Alabama #2, Houston jumps to #3: American Heartland Bar and Grill College Football Top 30

Overranked:
Virginia Tech. (BCS - 5)
-Signature win against 8-4 Virginia. 20 point loss to Clemson. Eeked out 14-10 win against Duke.

Arkansas (BCS- 8)
-should never have been ranked in the top 10 in the first place. Non-conference schedule stinks. Why are they still in top 10?

Oregon (BCS- 9)
-It's a good thing USC isn't eligible for the Pac12 this year because they may be the best team in the league right now. Oregon's non-conference schedule, LSU withstanding, wasn't the greatest (2-9 Missouri State??).

Underranked:
Houston. (BCS- 6)

American Heartland Bar and Grill College Football Top 30- Week 7

Well, well, well...the nightmare scenario for the BCS is beginning to play itself out. We are staring down the real possibility that the title game couldl be two SEC teams- LSU and Alabama.

Oregon (9-2) lost to USC but still holds the head to head tiebreaker over Stanford (10-1) in the PAC-12 North. If Oregon defeats Oregon State, Stanford is locked out of the PAC-12 title game and theoretically out of the national championship game.

The Big 10 is out of the picture.

Argument For a College Football Tournament

Right now, the current BCS system is nothing more a beauty pageant. A beauty pageant that's prejudiced against non-BCS schools. Why else would Arkansas, a team that's played a terrible non-conference schedule, be ranked ahead of Houston? Or Boise State?

LSU, Oklahoma State, and Oklahoma Maintain 1-2-3 Rankings: Week 6 American Heartland Bar and Grill College Football Rankings

The top four went unscathed over the weekend. But that can't be said about Stanford, Boise State, and Penn State.

How far up the rankings will Oregon jump after defeating previously unbeaten Stanford?

How for down the rankings will Boise State fall after another missed field goal ends their BCS title hopes?

And with the defeat of Stanford and Boise there is now only three unbeaten teams left: LSU, Oklahoma State, and Houston. Can Houston move past Boise State towards the top 5?
