FootballThere are a number of ways that college football is stupid. Let's focus on one of the stupidities.
In college football teams that have never played each other, are ranked against each other by a popularity contest and a (apparently magical) computer ranking system. This year five teams in the top 25 are unbeaten. They have never played each other, and have played almost none of the same teams. Yet a "national champion" will be picked based on two of these teams playing each other. But don't worry, it's objective because they put lots of numbers in the rankings.
What's more Cal (10-1), currently ranked number 6 after losing only one game to the team ranked number 1 will be playing number 22 Texas Tech (7-4) in the holiday bowl. The selection process was rumored to involve a ouija board, a graphing calculator, and uncle jeb's bumb knee. I'm sure it will be a great game.
But then, given that I think we should banish college sports as we know it, I guess I'm not one of the elite geniuses the figured this idiotic spectacle out.
