Why the BCS sucks

Besides the fact that all the computer scores in the world can't make up for the fact that the coaches poll is completely and totally crap.

Besides the fact that the people who vote in the AP poll can't even be bothered to watch the teams they're voting on (Last year's Utah team, anyone? Undefeated? Whipped Alabama's ass in their non-BCS bowl game? Couldn't get a BCS bid to save their life?)

The big excuse given by the BSC backers to teams like Boise State and Utah is "Well, play the big boys and we'll talk". My response back is "Why don't you go outside and play hide and go fuck yourself?" because the big boys are pissing their pants about playing Boise State.

Boise State is a damn good team. They've been damn good for YEARS. Go here and check out their past schedules. You have to go back to 2005 to find a year with THREE losses, and two of those were to ranked opponents. But they can't get a BCS bid. And now Boise State is actually telling the big boys "Hey, let us play you, we'll come to your stadium, and you don't have to return the favor by coming to Idaho. We just want to play you. C'mon! Let's play!"

And the big boys are in the corner, pissing and whining and moaning. Their one excuse, "Well, let them play OUR schedule!" just took a hit, because Boise State is willing to do just that - they're not hiding. Who's hiding? All the big colleges who only want to play a cream-puff non conference schedule. I'll take USC over Texas or Florida for the BCS championship, because USC goes out and plays the big boys. USC doesn't cower in the corner, whining and pissing all over itself during the non-conference games. You know who USC has played outside it's conference so far? San Jose State, Ohio State (who was ranked #8 at the time) and Notre Dame (who was ranked 25th at the time). Three non-conference games, and two of those were ranked opponents.

What about Florida? Hmmmmm... Troy? Charleston Southern? FIU?

What about Texas? Hmmmmm..... Louisiana-Monroe? Wyoming? UCF?

Boise State wants to play ranked teams. They want to prove themselves. USC does as well. Hell, I'll even take Ohio State over Florida and Texas, because Ohio State manned up and played USC rather than take another cupcake matchup.

Some teams want to play. Some teams want to hide inside their conference. And you know what? The BCS rewards the teams that hide. The BCS rewards the pissy-pants bitches. That's just another example of why the BCS is a horrible idea and should be scrapped.

Gah. I'm off to buy some ammo.

Hey Gibbs

Yeah you, Gibbs, the Presidential mouthpiece. You wanna whine about some LaRouchie waving an Obama-as-Hiter sign?

Fuck you, Gibbs.

Fuck you, Gibbs.

Fuck you, Gibbs.

Fuck you, Gibbs.

Fuck you, Gibbs.

Fuck you, Gibbs.

Fuck you, Gibbs.

Fuck you, Gibbs.

Fuck you, Gibbs.

Fuck you, Gibbs.

Oh, and Gibbsie? Go fuck yourself, you stupid fat sack of shit.

And for every Media whore in the audience who didn't call Gibbs on that bullshit, I hope you all get your shrunken, useless testicles taken off with a belt sander. The media in this country is so dishonest that they can't even call out the Messianic Mouthpiece on what has got to be one of the flat out dumbest remarks he's ever made. What a fucking joke. The entire MSM can go drive a bus off a cliff for all I care; all it would do is improve the collective IQ of this country. I really can't see any downside to that.

SHEESH: Why did I even bother finding all those pictures when other folks have done it as well? Actually, I know why: So I could tell the Messianic Mouthpiece to go fuck off a few more times. What a fucking stupid, worthless, hand-up-his-ass-puppetry joke. I don't just want him shamed, I want him hammered into the ground for even daring to be that fucking dumb.

Slip of agenda

video
I don't think anyone can truly be surprised by this

So....

By now you've heard about the shooting at Ft. Hood. Army Major Malik Nadal Hasan has killed 12 people and wounded 31. Hot Air has a good post with plenty of updates, and if you scroll down slowly you'll see how the story first formed and where it went from there.

I'm trying to remain apolitical on this, and I'm failing miserably. I have a co-worker who's flat out telling me that he will refuse to work with any Muslims, period. And you know what? I can't blame him. I can't find one single reason to tell him differently. A Muslim kills 12 of my fellow Soldiers in his own little personal jihad, and I'm supposed to stay calm?

Hey, remember the shooting of an Army Recruiter in Arkansas? The guy who did it? Muslim.

Was that a cheap shot? Maybe. But not as cheap a shot as tossing a grenade into a tent. Because you don't want to kill your fellow muslims, so you kill your fellow Soldiers.

Now, is religion the only reason Soldiers freak out and kill their fellow Soldiers? Nope. But the one common theme of muslim Soldiers who do so is that they put their religion before their country. In fact, the question in people's minds when they hear about a shooting such as this is "Is the gunman a Muslim?" And given how many plots have been uncovered regarding muslims wanting to kill Americans, they are right to ask that question. It's a valid question. When dealing with a religion that separates the world into the House of Islam and the House of War, and anyone not Muslim goes to the latter to be attacked, subjugated and conquered, then yeah I think it's a valid question. Catholic Doctrine says to spread the word of Christ through word and examples. I can't find any Catholic Doctrine that says "Put Unbelievers to the sword". It ain't there.

Protestant? Ditto. I can't find anything in Martin Luther's thesis that says to kill anyone who doesn't submit to that religion.

I've heard of a Four-Point Calvinist and a Five-Point Calvinist, but I've never heard of a Calvinist who declares that anyone not a Calvinist is the enemy.

However, I can find the passage in the Koran that claims all muslims must kill the unbelievers.

Right now I'm a little busy working through the details in my head. But I have to go to work today, and quite possibly "support" or allow a religion than wants to see me dead. And yeah, I have some issues with that.

Back home

Got back in yesterday. Celebrated homecoming with wife. Went out and bought a ladder. Cleaned out the gutters. Came in and had dinner. Got a call from co-worker (more on that later). Celebrated homecoming with wife again. Went to sleep.

Trip successful. Glad to be home.

No Web Access

I'll be on limited web access for the next few days. If I can post, I will. If I can't, well, try not to dirty up the joint any more than it already is before I get back, eh?

I'm not a Packer's fan

I'm a Seahawks fan, and have been for decades. But I'm also just a football fan, and for what Brett Favre did to the Packers......

I hope he spends his day flat on his ass at Lambeau Field.
