What He Said

Further proof (if any were needed) that Tony Barnhart rules:
Somebody suggested to me that one of the reasons the pollsters like USC instead of an SEC team for the No. 2 spot in the rankings is that the SEC plays too many low-scoring games and therefore the football is not perceived as good. Well, let me be blunt about this. If you think a 7-3 game between Auburn and LSU is bad football then you’re an idiot. If you vote in polls and you think defensive football is bad football then you should turn in your vote and go play video games because that is the level of your intellect. If you think USC is really a better team than Auburn or Florida I don’t have a problem with that. That is a reasonable argument to have. But high scoring football does not equal quality football. If it did, Boise State would be the national champion.

And God willing, someday they will be, said the Idaho boy.

Did you catch Tuberville's comments about the playoff system? I often think it ironic that the sport I love best in all the world has the absolute crappiest, most unfair, arbitrary, foolish system for determining the champion of any sport ever invented.
