Once again the BCS has show the old saying is true, “It’s all about the Benjamin Baby!” With an odd pick for the Sugar Bowl, the VT Hokies will be playing the Michigan State Wolverines. #7 Boise State, # 8 Kansas state and a # 12 Baylor (with top Heisman candidate RGIII) were all passed over for the Hokies 11-2, the same team that twice was killed by Clemson, and could not beat them in conference or conference championship game. Once again the almighty $$$ factor has played part. These top teams (BSU, K State, Baylor) were passed over to fill seats. In a year that has seen occupy wall street protest because of unfair practices, the BCS has sent the message that they believe they are untouchable, and that box office receipts mean more than student athletes body of work. Its important to note that in a system that stresses rankings, the following teams did not make a BCS Bowl. #6 Arkansas #7 BSU #8 Kansas State #9 South Carolina #12 Baylor #14 Oklahoma. I will have no problem boycotting the games this year. Happy Bowling, I’m off early to basketball season.

I am a resident of the Bronco Nation. Like ALL residents of Bronco Natoion, I am a die hard sports fan. When it comes to collegiate sports my heart lies solely with my Boise State (BCS BUSTING) Broncos. I have been a BSU fan since almost the time I knew what college football was, and have followed my BSU Broncos ever since (This all before the Fiesta Bowl Ban Wagon). My love and passion for sports is matched only by the love I have for my son and his mother. I enjoy coaching high school sports, playing basketball, spending time out doors, and visiting with friends and family when I am not working or looking at football box scores, and watching games at the Bronco Stadium or Taco Bell Arena.
