Heading for Another History Lesson

Yogi Berra was known to say, "it's deja vu all over again."

After seeing the first BCS standings, I think he's absolutely right and the clowns who run the BCS are just flat out wrong.

How in all that is right are the Ohio State Buckeyes ranked first in the BCS? Who in the heck have they beaten to earn that right?

They are 7-0 and have beaten one ranked team in 23rd ranked Purdue. I didn't know that you get full marks for beating Akron, Kent State and Youngstown State. Now you may get the Ohio championship, but not a top ranking.

Isn't this the same team that fooled everyone last year to get to the title game? Didn't work out so well when they had to play a "real" team in Florida and it won't work out for them this year either.

The Big Ten is an average to bad football conference and has been for a bunch of years. They don't belong with the other top conferences at this point in time. Not to say from time-to-time they don't have top teams ... but it has been a while.

If I was a betting man, I would bet South Florida, Boston College, LSU, Oklahoma and Kentucky would kick the Buckeyes around the field.

Heck, I think Hawaii would give them a good game.

This is why the rankings and BCS are flawed and only a playoff will solve this issue. But then again, I have been saying that as long as Yogi has been around.
