UPDATE: Virginia Tech knocked off by Georgia Tech! Check out my BCS predictions here.
UPDATE 2: Good story on the BS that is the BCS.
Arkansas played well.
Florida played awful.
The referees were the worst. *A close second goes to the two missed kicks by the Arkansas kicker who could have won the game for them*
I’m not a Razorbacks fan, or a Gators fan, just a college football fan. This was embarrassing to watch. Usually, you see one or two bad calls in a game. But in this game, there was bad call after bad call including two on a 4th quarter drive that got Florida back in the game and eventually the win with a 29 yard field goal with only 9 seconds left to play.
Nice attempt at the hook and lateral on the kickoff, though, by Arkansas.
So Florida hangs on. Texas hangs on. Alabama and Virginia Tech still to play. Who’s number one?
I’m not going to downplay how good the SEC is. They are the best conference in all of college football. But they ONLY PLAY EACH OTHER.
Most of the teams play patsy schedules, outside of their own conference. I saw during the game today that the announcers were talking about the BCS Championship game and how if all the teams end up with one or even two losses, that an SEC team should automatically play a Big 12 team. Honestly, that would probably be a GREAT game. But it should not be automatic because the teams play in the Big 12 and SEC.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: WE NEED A PLAYOFF! That’s all I can say. Whether it be an 8 or 16 team playoff. It’s necessary. Look at a couple years ago when Boise State upset Oklahoma. Last year when Utah routed Alabama. Just because teams play in conferences that are considered “weaker” than others, they get no respect. I would love to see the teams play it out on the field, and not amongst voters and computers.
Just my opinion. What’s yours?
