i got home a little early on this Friday night, and got home and flipped the channel to the World Wide Leader.
i'd like to watch Boise State games, I really would. however, when they're winning 34-0 in the third quarter, its hard to want to watch.
instead, i watched the end of a great pro basketball game between the Chicago Bulls and Dallas Mavericks, it was a tight game, between two quality teams, that came down to make plays at the end of the game, Chicago made more and won the game.
which brings me to my problem with Boise State, and also TCU, and whoever may be the rouge team three years from now...
when you wipe your inferior conference opponets, and none of your games are close, how are you to establish a fan base?
how are we to know that you're good enough to play for it all?
at least with Auburn, they are playing good teams every week, against teams with a depth of talent, where the games are at least competitive, and there is at least a chance, that the undefeated team may loose.
not when you watch the Broncos. i think i heard that there 20 first half points were the fewest they scored all season; how do we know that Boise State QB is any good, when he's playing ahead by three touchdowns every week?
if the Univeristy of Wisconsin ends up winning the Big 10, they will have done it by beating two quality opponets in Ohio State and Iowa, while suffering a loss to another good team in Michigan State. what are the good teams that Boise has had to play in Conference? when you play good teams, there are going to be close games, and I don't care who you are, nobody Wins ALL the close games, and when you don't have to play anybody good enough to play you close, it's just not as significant.
if the Badgers do finish out the season, they'd need to defeat two 7-3 teams in Michigan and Northwestern to do it, both of which probably have better players than a Nevada team who is Boise's toughest remaining game.
i absouletely belive that Boise State and TCU deserve their spot in a BCS bowl, and i do not mean to shit on what should be pefect seasons by both schools, and believe they both got screwed last year by having to play each other (a game i didn't watch and don't know who won).
i blame the system more than either team, and as good as they are, i just don't want to see either play for the National Championship, i hope this helps explain why.
