The BCS Got It Right? Tell That to Oregon
Today's quiz: Who got screwed more on Sunday, Ron Jeremy or Oregon's football team? Answer: The Ducks got ... well, you know, f'd. Notre Dame, through some act of God, wormed its way into the Fiesta Bowl. Now how did this happen? Oregon fans are quick to point out that among the voters in the Harris Poll, used in-part by the BCS to determine the best teams, is none other than former Domer Rocket Ismail. His ballot was rather interesting, putting Notre Dame at No. 4 and Oregon at ... No. 11? And how about Pat Haden, who works for the NBC, the Notre Dame Broadcasting Company. His ballot has Notre Dame at No. 3! Oregon knew this was coming. A letter writer to the Register-Guard on Sunday pointed out that Notre Dame has the weakest schedule among BCS teams. And to make it worse, the same thing happened in 2001 to the Ducks. One columnist says it's time for the Pac-10 to get out of the BCS business, having been screwed in 2003 (USC) and 2004 (California) in addition to the injustices against Oregon. And you think this is a West Coast bias toward Notre Dame? Think again. A columnist in Ann Arbor who has seen Notre Dame and Ohio State play says the Buckeyes win hands down.
